Oh, and while you're at it, feel free to climb all 32 peaks on peakery for a fictional 3rd pin. This challenge is a subset of the Mountaineers Club Mount Rainier 100 Peaks Pin.

"Went out to scramble Denman Peak, Lane Peak and Wapaneyo, but had to turn around because of the weather worsening before reaching Wapaneyo. Car-to-car 7 hours. Denman Peak was easy, although I made it harder than I had to. Coming from the Plumber side, I started scrambling up on the east side of the ridge, but on the way down I discovered that the west side had an easy walk-up trail. After Denman, I continued to Lane Peak. The trail was still good and easy to find, albeit quite slippery with mud (there were a few muddy, slippery places before Denman already). I made my way to the plateau imm" - Lane Peak, mathiasricken, Sep 16, 2018

"Scrambled Mount Fremont East Peaks 1 and 2, Mount Fremont, Mount Fremont Middle, Point 6771, went to the Mount Fremont Lookout, and then went to the Mount Fremont West ("Sub Freemont") peak. Wonderful solitude in most of the places. The scramble to Mount Fremont East 2 wasn't bad, but there are a lot of loose rocks, and even some big slabs are loose. Be careful what you pull on. After that, went up to Burroughs 3. Still some snow up there. Not on the trail, but could refill my water bottles." - Third Burroughs Mountain, mathiasricken, Sep 2, 2018
"Did this as a spur-of-the-moment backup climb after turning around on Mount Ruth. Actually, it was a backup's backup plan, as I'd targeted Barrier Peak, but turned around when I saw fresh lion tracks on the approach to that one! South ridge, gained from Owyhigh Lakes." - Tamanos Mountain, TynanRammGranberg, Jun 11, 2018
"Hot day for climbing....96 F at Longmire, so the standard Class 3/4 route required us to consume lots of water up and down. The view was incredible despite smoke from multiple fires drifting down from BC. Rock quality is good to horrible, so stay en route." - Pinnacle Peak, tlannin, Aug 3, 2017
