Ascent Trip Report

Went in via trail 217 over the East peak and over the Middle peak then dropped down the open West ridge until intersecting the trail again that continues along the south side of the West peak. Leave the trail at the obvious spot and ascend along the open East ridge up to and along a short rocky ridge crest. Here you will find some short but exposed scrambling along the crest or just below on the south side until reaching the open slope again for the last 50 ft to the summit. Both my altimeter and GPS indicated that the West and Middle summits were within +/- 5 feet of each other. My advise if you are chasing the Wash 2K prominence peaks is to do them both.

No cairns or registers were found on any of the summits.
