Went out with Matt B. This peak is up the Humptulips River. Started at 9:00am Brush was less wet than I thought and still a lot of brush. 4 hours up. 3.5 hours down--more brush than usual to watch your step! some cliffs between 2400-2600 feet to go through--a gully on either side works Traverse to climbers right starting at 3300 feet to avoid cliffs above you. There is steep duff just before the summit. Route below is the basics of what we did. Some snow in the basin before the peak but no real snow until the last 100 feet. Did not take snowshoes.

Art is an adventure.
