It was a tough drive up a 4x4 road in my little old Subaru Outback, but I made it for some nice morning light (missed sunrise). I did another 5 mile hike hoping to get some other views, but trees got in the way. This is one of my favorite mountains in WA. The north face, in profile here, was the first grade VI (many days on the face) climb done in the state. I always wanted to climb it, but never got up it (except by the trail on the backside).
