"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
"Stayed the night in one of the very best campsites I've ever experienced. The full moon allowed some rad night photos. The best kept secret of Mount Rainier is that the best hike is outside the park. There was still some snow in the gullies coming form the north trailhead, but it was moderately soft and easily kick-stepped." - Tatoosh Peak, TynanRammGranberg, Jul 8, 2017
"A terrific hike with views that are worth the forest slog. The easiest route is from Forest Service road 37, which splits off from road 59 at about 2.8 miles. Note that Peggy Goldman's 2nd edition of the Washington Scrambles book incorrectly tells you to turn left onto this road (it’s a right). You can go another mile or so down this road before it dead ends on a large root wad and a small land slide near Goat Creek. We got in with a low-clearance hatchback (barely), but wouldn’t want to do it if it had rained recently. There’s a bit of a washout a few hundred yards before the end that you" - Mount Wow, TynanRammGranberg, Jun 23, 2015
"Enjoyed the trail to Mirror Lakes via Kautz Creek. From there we took the path up Pyramid Peak. The path was well established all the way to the saddle and from there fainter path would continue up but you don't really have to follow it. The upper part is choose your own adventure. Spent night at a tarn bellow the peak. The stars were fantastic." - Pyramid Peak, Gabigabs, Sep 13, 2014
