Route Climbed: West ridge Date Climbed: 8-25-01  Sucess!

Climbed with (and took summit photo of) "Hammer". The climb was pretty straight forward. I enjoyed it, and would do it again, but its a hell of a long drive.

Route Climbed: West Ridge Date Climbed: August 25, 2001  Sucess!

Great climb with the Chemeketan Climbing Club. Great views of Crater Lake, Diamond Lake, and of the Sisters Complex to the North.

Our Climb went well with my uncle leading the summit pinnacle. I think if I was to do it again I would free climb it and save the weight of the rope. Some however might freak with the down climb.

Route Climbed: Southwest Ridge Date Climbed: August 4,2001  Sucess!

Last 100 feet on Northeast ridge. Route moves to East with great exposure as you near the summit. A bit much for unaided climb. Can see into Crater Lake from summit.

Route Climbed: West Ridge Date Climbed: May, 1992  Sucess!

This was my first class 3 scramble and scared the pants off me. But Eric and I felt like brave mountaineers after overcoming our initial fear and climbing the summit blocks. Great little volcanic needle with excellent holds.

It was this view from Crater Lake that got our attention as we drove north, and literally climbed this on a whim. It's hard to just drive by without it getting your attention.

Route Climbed: West Ridge Date Climbed: June 17, 2001  Sucess!

After hiking most of the way up on the West Ridge, I took the NW (?) ridge for the last hundred feet to the summit. It came in at about 5.4 or so on pretty solid rock. Great exposure!

From the summit you can see all the way south to Mount Shasta and all the way north to Mount Jefferson. Quite impressive.
