Mazama Climb  Sucess!

Went on a Mazama climb for this one. The weather couldn't have been any nicer; blue skies without a single cloud. We roped up for the summit pinnacle, since we were a group of 10 and the club policy says you have to. But I don't think I will rope up again next time I go on my own.

Fulgurite out

wasn't feeling the last bit, but was peaking well enough to enjoy the trip

Not too bad  Sucess!

Looks hairy from the base, but the pitch at the end is not so bad. Looking down the north face though, now there's some exposure.

great tip  Sucess!

Friend in Ashland told me to go for it since I was headed North through Crater Lake. Exhilirating scramble.

Very nice summit  Sucess!

Heavy snow year, so some of the trail in woods was lost in the snow. Solo trad lead 1 pitch to summit and anchored rope for others coming up later on. Great view, great day, fun class 4 rock. Bathed in Diamond Lake afterwards. Very enjoyable!

Solo  Sucess!

Only one car in the parking lot, guy was going down as I went up. I didn't have any information about the trail or climb except the map at the trailhead, so I wasn't expecting to make the summit. Snow on the trail through the trees, absolutely NOBODY around, made it up the ridge and scouted the summit. Went up one way and saw certain death on the NW ridge, then went around the SE side and Class 4ed my ass up. Definitely some exposure but the holds are nice. Super stoked to make the top. Nice day with incredible views, a little over 3 hours up. The decent included face planting in the snow after sliding on my feet a little too fast, and losing the trail in the snow, but getting back on with about a mile to go.

My future Wife  Sucess!

I climbed Mt Thielsen with my girlfriend and her dad and sister. Her love of outdoors, amoung other things, convinced
me I should make her my wife. And married we were!! Yes we all summitted, I will always this climb.

Lightening Rod of The Cascades  Sucess!

This is one of those climbs that you can do without a rope, but you kind of wished you had one halfway up, and especially to rap down on. Great climb - very small summit with 6 people on it.

Labor Day weekend 2010  Sucess!

Had a fantastic time climbing, managed to get a group of 9 up and down safely. Set a fixed line on the way up and used a second rope for a rap down. Fantastic weather for the majority of the day with a couple of clouds rolling over the summit as we descended the scree. Even with a 7AM start there were plenty of people in line to head up the summit block, ended up taking an extra couple of hours beyond the estimated round trip time.

West Ridge  Sucess!

Dan Butler and I made our first climb of Mt. Thielsen. Made a quick trip down to climb before the fall rainy season kicked in.
Nice climb and good rock on the summit pinnacle. Rain on our way home.

Polar Opposites  Sucess!

Tried this on June 10, 2009 and was caught in a snow/hail storm along the ridge. Came back One month later to a successful summit off of an alpine start (immediately after a full days work and full night's drive down from Portland) on what would become a 104 degree day.

Awesome climbing, great views  Sucess!

Thielsen was the last climb I did while I was working for the Forest Service in the Umpqua National Forest. Climbed with my buddies from the Botany department and our other friend, who happened to be doing Wilderness Patrol that day. We got good beta, so we didn't bring a rope or any pro, none needed. Just have faith that all the holds are there. Really fun climb to the top and nice summit pinnacle.
