Plummer Peak is a rounded summit just SW of Pinnacle Peak. Plummer involves a 2nd class .25-mi heather scramble from trail's end at the saddle.
Another prominent, if lesser, peak in the Tatoosh Traverse, Denman, lies just northwest of Plummer Peak, and just east of Lane Peak. Denman is an easy scramble and has great views of the surrounding peaks and Mt. Rainier across the valley to the north. This peak is slightly harder than Plummer Peak.
