Thanks Hammer.

We totally used the page to follow the tricky approach trail from the lake and North Ridge climbing.

I added a note to the North Ridge to clarify the 1st pitch. We investigated two left leaning gullies from the notch and chose the higher, more Eastern one because we found it easier than the 1st gully that required a step around a bulge and a bit more exposed climbing up to the 1st belay station

Rock on.

All done! MAny of the Cascade Volcanoes keep getting grouped with Alps. Don't know why but it is gone now. Thanks for the votes!

Re: Here is a video

Thank you for the link.

This video gives a good idea of what the climbing on the normal route is like.

I have placed a link on the main page.

Re: Here is a video

Thought the video would be a fun addition, I linked to at least 10 of these OFG videos on one of my pages. BTW, I like what you've done with these adopted cascade pages.

Approach Easier !!!

Ignore the patjens lake approach and it's hybrids.Also don't take the crest trail from santiam pass.Turn left on The Santiam Wagon Road just before big lake. drive 3/4 of a mile and park at the crest trail parking.Head south to the climbers trail before colwater springs or cut cross country(easy and open) to the north ridge.Use the santiam wagon road to acces the east side routes from parking area at Hortense Lake. The S.E, Spur is a great route on mostly solid rock with great views and exposure. The soaring dihedral to next to it is also good(5.9)Also the West Ridge is good if you use good judgement.
