Ascent Trip Report

We followed Dean Mollens directions. they were perfect. The saddle is there and obviously between the two high points. Make certain when you park, you don't block some of the 4x4 trails that are frequently used by off-road guys (there are a few up on the saddle).
The North peak has a brass marker on the highest rock, the other has a series of radio towers. both are road walks past the gate.
On Deans directions, pay attention to the mileage, as there are a few forks in the road that come earlier. His directions are spot on, just make sure you go the full miles before you take a turn.
The view from up there is astounding! You can see Raineer, St Helens, Adams, Hood, Jefferson and the three sisters.
