MOUNT REDOUBT 8969'
COPPER PEAK 8964' P484
from WSW on Genius'. Silas Wild, Bob Tillotson, and John Roper did a new route on Copper up the gully starting at the lowest central snow patch, going right into the next gully over at the small snow patch, then to the left ridge and up, on September 16, 1984. We came down the prominent gully right below the summit which is the way to do it, from this side.

Jan Ott took this photo of me on the famous Dome Rock, July 23, 1979.

the rounded, central summit, viewed from South, above Wolf Creek, on traverse from Abernathy.
North Gardner is the left pyramid.
BOSTON PEAK 8894' P854
on left, from Forbidden. Quien Sabe Glacier (Spanish for "who knows?"--playing off Doubtful Lake) named by Austin Post after a prospector's mine claim here, and Sahale Peak center, Bonanza (R). Billie Butterfield ended her quest for the Top 100 in 2000 on Boston.

Boston Peak tragedy.
SILVER STAR MOUNTAIN 8876 P2436
from the West. Lage Wernstedt climbed and named this in 1926, probably from this perspective. Silas noted the name-inspiring Silver Star on the face.
ELDORADO PEAK 8868' P2188
ELDORADO PEAK 8868' P2188
Hard to beat those aerial views--this is my only other. The 1200-foot McAllister Glacier Ice Fall is the finest in the North Cascades. The contrasting aspects of Eldorado are striking.

FORBIDDEN PEAK 8815' P1055

On August 18, 2006, Fay Pullen became the 25th person to finish the Bulger List on this peak. One of Fay's many claims to fame is that she soloed 72 of the Top 100 Peaks in WA.
