Three-Peak Day: Putrid Pete’s Peak, Web Mountain, and Mount Defiance

On Sunday, Jenny and I joined a 10-mile Mountaineers scramble to three peaks along the I-90 corridor. We ascended to Putrid Pete’s Peak, then scrambled to the west to Web Mountain, came back to Putrid Pete’s, ascended the ridge to just below Mount Defiance, and hiked up to the summit of Mount Defiance. We took the easy Mount Defiance trail back to the trailhead.

From just below Mount Defiance, we could see the ridge we had just traversed from Putrid Pete's.
