Ascent Trip ReportWeyerhaeuser now requires a permit for access to this one. Non-motorized is $50 for the year and is good for all Weyerhaeuser lands north of I-90. I opted for the $200 motorized permit that came with a key. I drove through the gate off of Mosquito Lake Rd and took a road that switch backed up the NE side of the mountain. About a half mile north of the summit the road was blocked by several windfalls so I had to walk a little. Eric is right, the summit is pretty vague with a lot of candidates.
