Here are two summits that are an easy combination that make for a good outing. Both have outstanding views. Iron is a simple hike while Teanaway requires a bit of scrambling. Teanaway/Genes is one of those peaks with two local names.
Hike up the Iron Peak Trail to the saddle between Iron and Teanaway. For Iron Peak, it's a simple hike along the ridge up to the summit. There is a climbers trail on this ridge. For Teanaway Peak, the scramble starts by traversing a bit around the east side. Soon you'll encounter gullies and the route climbs these to the summit. Snow makes it easier, they are reported to be full of loose rock and gravel in the summer. Either way, the route is just a scramble whichever conditions you encounter.
