350 feet taller but much further up the Middle Fork. Wouldn't qualify as a North Bend Quadruple in my opinion

I forgot the  wink.gif

That would be seriously impressive if anyone could do the triple and climb Garfield all in one go.

Never been up that one. At a glance it looks like only the south summit would be accessible in winter without technical climbing. I may go check it out this weekend.

What peak do you guys think would be the best addition for a North Bend Quadruple? Little Si is way too small. Rattlesnake doesn't have enough gain. Mt. Washington perhaps? That would make 15K and almost 30 miles.

Nice work!  How about ending at Mason Lake after a swim?

^  ^  ^  agree with all of the above. FTR, a typical trail runner walks steeper uphills and averages 4-5 mph on trails like Mt. Si and Mailbox. That's not that much faster than a fast hiker.

I agree  with Steve who is agreeing with CC.

Agree with BrushBuffalo.

On second thought, how about Garfield?

My first thought was Granite. Then, with an evil grin, Garfield. Getting up and down Garfield in a day is a feat. Adding it to the other three would thin the field considerably.
Especially with the newly implemented "no hiking fast, jogging, or passing" rule of being considerate  wink.gif

Add the full length of Rattlesnake out-and-back TH-to-TH-to-TH

or add PPP > Defiance (via Banana Ridge traverse) loop

That's a good one!  My first thought was McClellan, but although it's ~3700ft, it's not very steep, rather meh.

PPP, that one is steep and enough gain to take you to 15K.  And given location, it would probably be first or last, warm you up, or good sting in the tail.

Year round??

PPP would be a good choice for the summer but it would be dangerous in the winter, I think.

Yeah, that's the year round ??? above.

But otherwise, the aesthetic of the route matches the "old trail" theme....not so many "hellos/goodbye" on that one......very good idea when available, helluva day.

I feel very strongly that Mount Washington should be the fourth peak. Anything else makes zero sense. When you're driving I90 East and you descent that little hill into North Bend, the most prominent looking peaks are Si, Teneriffe, Mailbox, and Washington.

This seems like the natural choice to me too.

I agree. It's comparable in size to the other three and close enough to town to still be a legitimate North Bend peak. In fact the summit is slightly closer to the town center than Mailbox's.

What about the it has to be north of I-90 rule?  Zorro Mountain?

I agree Mt. Washington is actually the best choice.
