Adapted from Summitpost.org:
If you're looking for a good accessible winter summit that has enough elevation gain (5500') feet to get you ready for larger mountains yet doesn't have many of the obstacles that other mountains have in the region, this is your peak. Directions to this peak are actually very easy (right off of Route about 30 miles west of Leavenworth, Washington) yet because this mountain is off trail and contains 5500' of elevation gain it doesn't get that much attention except for in the extreme hiking community.

Leave It Better than You Found It.
 This should be every user’s goal. Pick up trash left by others, pull noxious weeds along your route, throw branches over unwanted spur trails, etc.
