What is missing so far is a clear statement that: there is NO official (Forest Service) trail. It is basically a bushwack. Climbing is discouraged for a number of reasons including safety/liability, a rescue also puts rescuers at risk, erosion, etc. I learned and found the “trail head,” which is indeed and should be difficult to find. Climbing this one was a specific goal when I came out for a last climb in the area. I chose instead to hike Bear Mtn.
I’ve summited Humphrey Peak, Wilson Mtn. and Bell Rock here, and others, plus Mt. Washington, other White Mtns and Adirondacks, and hiked north of Seattle among others. But not everything everywhere needs to be done.
Sure you may be one of the people who can climb this one, but use some judgment, respect, and outdoors ethics, too, and pursue an alternative. Thanks.
