Peak 4816, OR | August 2017

Summit: 
W7O/CN-089

Peak 4816 is a near drive-up summit a bit east of Mount Hood, accessed mostly on paved Forest Service roads. The summit area has an small but interesting rock pinnacle. You should consider this summit in the Mount Hood 2m FM "dead zone" as we were not able to raise anyone on 146.52 except a sked with a nearby S2S.

Summit: 
W7O/CN-044

Peavine Mountain is a drive-up summit a bit east of Mount Hood, accessed mostly on paved Forest Service roads. You should consider this summit in the Mount Hood 2m FM "dead zone" as we were not able to raise anyone on 146.52, even after begging on the Mt. Hood repeater.

Peak 1804, OR | August 2017

Summit: 
W7O/NC-112

Here's a drive-up summit a few miles off Highway 26 when you are on your way to the coast. Not from from the well-trod Saddle Mountain, W7O/NC-004, it's one more point for the ambitious activator. The roads are easily traveled in a passenger car.

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: 
W7I/CU-001

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.
