Ascent Trip Report

After knocking off the Wahkiakum COHP yesterday and camping at Vista Park, I drove to hit the Pacific COHP.

You need to access the Weyerhaeuser logging road called the A-line. I thought this gate would be unlocked, especially during hunting season, but it wasn't.

I tried turning off the main road at other locations and following my map to link the the A-line, but it was not to be. I drove some incredibly rugged roads, some I think haven't been driven in a couple years. But I couldn't link to the A-line. The A-line leads to within 1/4 mile of the summit. Otherwise, I think it was a 10 hour hike each way. I didn't have time for that so I headed home to Seattle.

I'll be back.
