Visible below the climbers is the Dogshead. This terrain doesn't exist anymore.

have knew? Wonder how much of it was totally

I lived just north of Corvallis, OR when St. Helens decided to flip its lid.
I will always remember the huge ash cloud I could see in the Northern sky and the fine layer of ash we had all over the place the next day.
Amazing deal.

..that this picture brings back. I climbed it in 1973 but it took three tries to get the job done. I still remember the great glissades from the Dogs Head. Love this pic as it shows gear that was the best we had, rucksacks, wooden ice axes, etc. Thanks for posting this one.

Yes indeed, a special event for me. I wish others would post pre eruptive climbing pics of St. Helens
