Set apart from the main mountains that line the western shores of Lake Chelan, Flora is a hulking mass — a huge blob — between the town of Holden and the lake. Flora’s profile is mostly above timberline, and desolate and barren. Yet the mount does have some complexity at the top. The south point of the massif is the highest. In contrast to its stark appearance on the approach, the route up Flora is surprisingly verdant, undulating up several forested ridges and down deeply vegetated basins before ascending the final slog to the summit.
