Thanks to Donna for adding this peak.
It has a north peak and a south and you have to camp at Valley of Silent Men. It would be a two day trip. It is south of Mt. Constance in the Olympic Range. You can see the two peaks from Seattle.
The Brothers is located along the eastern boundary of Olympic National Park and The Brothers Wilderness. From the town of Hoodsport, WA, drive north on Highway 101 to the Hamma Hamma Road, then drive about 8 miles to the Lena Lake Trailhead. The Lena Lake Trail starts at about 1800 feet and easily gains elevation to reach Lower Lena Lake in less than 4 miles. Locate The Brothers Trail at the north end of the lake and follow it through the Valley of Silent Men 3 more miles. Route finding and scrambling skills are required for the final summit.
The Brothers was named in 1857 by Lt. George Davidson for Edward (south peak) and Arthur (north peak) Fauntleroy, brothers to Constance and Ellinor Fauntleroy (Mt Constance and Mt Ellinor). Ellinor was Davidson's bride-to-be and he named the mountains to impress his future father-in-law.
