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.

Good stuff. Sketchy scramble to the notch. Took the 2nd ramp, then up to the first rap station. Not too bad from there. Bring a 60 meter rope for some cool raps on the way down. Forget downclimbing--that did not look like fun.

I made it all the way to the top... you call this rock?
We were amazed by swarms of butterflies in another sunny day.

It was the second mountain in as many days. Three fingered jack bieng the first. I would say we started out relunctantly bieng we were all pretty tired from the 13 hours on the trail the day before. We quickly broke into stride gathering yet more momentum for a long scree slog up the ridge to the mountain saddle. The mountain is awsome but very loose. Thje first pitch is quite exposed you can really feel your butt hangin in the wind. The summit erea is quite a bit larger than you might think when gazing up at it. The views are tremendous and the lightening storm was approaching time to bail.

Loose & crumbly. Three raps off the summit block back to the notch -- glad to not do any downclimbing!

Beautiful day, no clouds, wasn't too hot either. Too many ATVs at Big Lake though. From the notch there are 3 horns slung with rap rings to protect/rap the more difficult sections. Great climb with great views!

This was my first technical climb and it was great! 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!

Lots of waiting due to 15 people ahead of us on the route. We scrambled up to a big horn at the top of the second ramp this time and belayed a very short pitch. The crux comes right out of the belay and then unprotected third class leads to the top of "the nose". I just used one large hex and a long sling for pro. From there we scrambled up to the summit and back down to the rap station unroped. I recommend taking the second ramp over the first ramp because rope drag isn't as horrendous and the climbing is shorter on more "solid" rock.

A long but easy approach with a short 5.4 summit. A nice, moderate day.

Climbed a looser variation on the first pitch and then some more solid variations on the second and third pitches. Flying ants were swarming at the summit this time.

See Cornvallis's entry below. There's definitely more than one way to climb "the nose" just above the notch. I'm not sure that a standard route exists. First ramp or second ramp? Just gives me a reason to try the second ramp sometime. I placed a new register book in the summit ammo can.

Another early start for dkantola and myself. Left Salem by 3:00 AM and were on the trail by 5:30. Took the first ramp. Wow, just a bit of exposure as you climb the first chimney and find yourself hanging over the east face. No worries, David led the route well and placed solid pro (as solid as you could on this heap). Would not recommend climbing this variation unroped! Free climbed the next two pitches to the summit. Flies were overwhelming on the true summit, but 50 ft. to the north they left you alone.....king of the hill eh? Rapped the first pitch back to the notch. Don't believe the hype about the great rock on Washington, are holds supposed to move?

I found the rock not to be as solid as advertised. Many flies swarming at the summit rocks. The summit register needs a new book.
