Peak 4620, OR (Cramp Butte) | February 2017

Summit: 
W7O/CN-090

Peak 4620 is a backcountry snowshoe activation that can be done in the winter if you don't mind using a GPS and are comfortable with off-trail navigation.

Eureka Peak, OR | March 2017

Summit: 
W7O/CN-043

A first activation of Eureka Peak on snowshoes turned out to be quite a workout. The basic climb description is about 2.5 miles one way and 1200 feet of gain, but the real work is off the trail with the last half mile being particularly steep. Since there is no trail to the top this would be difficult to do without snow cover.

Summit:

Jeff-KF7NOZ had the privilege of activating W7I/CU-001 on Saturday August 4th 2013. This was the first activation of Idaho's highest peak. It was my second attempt activating this summit and I'm not sure I would have tried a third.

Three Corner Rock, WA | November 2016

Summit: 
W7W/LC-101

This is a fine hike that many should try at some point - it's 4.4 miles and 800 feet of gain for the 'short' version described here, with a summit pinnacle that makes for a fun scramble if you feel the need to get to the tippy top.

WA6ARA activates Wizard Island, OR | August 2014

Summit: 
W7O/CS-038

As part of our annual summer trips Paula, N6VGW and myself (WA6ARA) try to go different routes and have fun along the way. As part of our 2014 excursion we stopped by Crater Lake in Oregon for a few days. While there we did a a couple of Summits On The Air, or SOTAs. These were Wizard Island and Mt Scott. While Mt Scott has been activated often, Wizard Island had never been activated. Wizard Island, is in the middle of Crater Lake so you can’t walk there, it is a boat trip and reservations are usually needed.
