Ascent Trip Report

Snowed today in Everett so decided to hit some of the lower dumpster peaks for safety and speed as i had a lot to do before we move to Bremerton in a few days. Pretty steep nonetheless and hit up to half a foot of snow closer to top. Views were non existent. Interestingly, followed small game trail in fresh snow basically the entire way up. Saw some massive paw prints that traversed the trail about half way up as well. The way back down, i headed over to Mount Washington, the neighboring peak. No views from this peak as well, although a little past the summit I was able to get a view though nothing spectacular. Pretty tired on way back, ran into some hunters close to TH. Car to car with both peaks ~5 hrs. 1000 to 1450.....

After review with no GPS, might not have tagged summit proper.
