Ascent Trip Report

An enjoyable scramble up this peak after having hiked in via Hurrican Ridge. I have some great photos from the summit; it offers a panorama of the Olympic Mountains. It's not a hard trip; there's just one section which required handholds and some route-finding, the rest was more of a hike. Some snow clung to the ridge, not surprising since it was only June. Gorgeous day, with plentiful wild flowers in the meadows, not to mention company of good friends.
(This was a part of my trip to the Olympic peninsula.)
