JGHarrisonNightmare variation of the North Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 11, 2009

JGHarrison

Headed East around all the pillars on the North ridge to a horribly sketchy loose gully that comes up facing southwest into the main North face...dislodged a giant rock that cut my rope almost in half, and just missed my partner. Do Not recommend this route, definitely stay west of the pillars...good adventure though, but damn...close one.

PallandoQuick Day Trip from Sisters  Sucess!

Pallando

I'd been up to the summit block when I was much younger – and no further.
So when my friends said they wanted to climb Washington that day (from Sisters, it's a quick trip) I was a little skeptical.
We made it to the block late (4:30) and were advised to not go further, since roping up makes the trip much longer. We heeded the advice, but decided to do a little free climbing anyway. Much to our surprise, we got quite far up the gulley with no real need for roping up, so we set a 30 minute ultimatum and decided to go as far as we could manage. I stayed behind with the dog (I would not have brought a dog, and definitely not this far) while my friends summited in 8 minutes. We had time for me and a friend to go up and we all made it down before our 30 minute restriction.

Surprised, but next time I'll bring rope.

Did the North Ridge solo. Cold, cloudy, windy day. Lots of loose rock on this peak, but not too hard to find "solid" stuff. No rope, so had to downclimb, but it wasn't any harder than going up. NOT a great climb by any standard, unless you like crumbling choss piles. 2.5 hrs to the summit.

This was a great climb with a little element of technical thrown in. The weather was perfect, but I could have done without the swarms of flying ants at the summit. The repel was a little tricky due to some high winds, but overall it was a great trip!

If anyone finds a back and silver Motorola cell on the N.Ridge route please contact me. Most likely it is above the first pitch on the easier scrambling sections. If found you can leave a voice mail at 503-560-2749. I'll pay for shipping and handling plus a 20$ reward. Thanks. Great climb!

Did the west ridge. I think we did the first pitch that is "not recommended" lots of lose vertical stacked stuff. Tim the man didn't place a single piece on the upper half.

Mazama climb. After 3FJ the day before, this mountain was a welcome relief. The rock was much more reliable and the Sisters were a lot closer.

Fun climb. Looks like there could be several routes at the summit block. Long day (large group). Climbed with a fixed line and a prusik, Down climbed with a prusik half way then rappeled the rest of the way.

DigglerExciting pile of rubble!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2007

Diggler

Last peak of the 2007 Cascade Challenge Volcanofest. Left PCT TH @ 10.01. Made good time & before I knew it, was at the base of the Nose (on the N ridge). Knowing the relative (in)stability of the rock & looking up, I was highly skeptical. Started up, however, & before I knew it was at the top. While not that difficult technically, one of the scariest soloes I've done- thinking-feeling that any of my hand(or foot)holds might go at any time was quite nerve-wracking. Remaining scrambling was fun- summited at 14.08.

Hung out at top & BSd with Grant & Steve (also a CU engineering alum). Great views & terrific weather- weird to finally be on the other side of the Sisters! Descended at 15.57 (really glad to rap' down instead of downclimbing the Nose!), got back to car at 18.50.

Back to Bend for Deschutes food & beer! Great trip & look forward to my next OR Cascade volcano trip!

Went up to take my 4th climb up this beautiful peak. Got to the trail head to find the whole area restricted due to the fires. Some force took over us and we ended up on top and apparently the only ones for the last 10 days. Had a great time even under the threat of the cold fast wind and supposed fire.

After summiting Three Fingered Jack the day before, our group reached the top of this beautiful mountain. My last peak climbed for the summer. A great climb and one of my favorite panoramic views of any of the Oregon Cascades.
