Montana - Cinnabar Point - 22Sptember2019

Summit: 
W7M/GA-112

Cinnabar Point is currently a mature lodgepole forest on a rolling summit.  In the 1980s the summit sported a dilapidated pole tower structure that may have been used as a lookout, but has since fallen and rotted.  It is an easy mountain bike ride up a permanently closed road and then a short climbing trail to an off-trail gradual assent to the summit.

East Crater, WA | September 2020

Summit: 
W7W/LC-025

East Crater is a peak in the Indian Heaven wilderness. Three years ago, the south side and ridgeline of East Crater were completely burned by a fire that ended up burning about 500 acres in the area, and this fire caused the evacuation of the entire Indian Heaven wilderness area in September of 2017. Not much has grown back on the south side, while the north side, essentially untouched by the fire, is thick with trees.

Traverse Ridge, OR | Sept 2020

Summit: 
W7O/NE-017

This summit is attained in a 4.5 mile, 3500 ft elevation gain hike with well maintained trial for the first half and reasonable trail with loose rock the rest of the way to the top. The trail head is easy to find once you know what you are looking for. There are a few key GPS waypoints that ease your way tremendously.  I would not have been able to make this activation without tips from KC7DM, so a huge thank you to him.

West Butte, OR | Sept 2020

Summit: 
W7O/CE-111

West Butte (W7O/CE-111) is a prominent peak located about 23 miles east of Bend, north of Hwy 20.  I completed it’s first activation in September 2020, which is surprising considering the mountain’s close proximity to Bend.  While much of the summit is within BLM public lands, access is somewhat limited.
