This weekend we attempted to hike Sasse Mountain, but got a bit lost finding the trailhead, and ended up hiking the Howson Creek Trail  up to Sasse Ridge instead. The end result was the same as what we had planned (great views of Ranier and surrounding peaks) but with 1,000 ft more elevation gain over 2 less miles, aka the steepest thing I've ever hiked.
