Mount Raymond is slightly lower than its popular neighbor, Gobblers Knob, but it is more fun to climb. The angular peak rises from the apex of three weathered limestone ridges that come together at roughly equal angles on the eastern side of the Mount Olympus Wilderness Area. The assent route described here follows one of the ridges up from Baker Pass. It is an easy walk most of the way, but the last few hundred yards involve just enough scrambling to make the climb interesting. At the top you will be treated to an exhilarating view of Dromedary Peak and Twin Peaks on the other side of Big Cottonwood Canyon and Gobblers Knob east of Baker Pass.
