Awesome page, Noah! Thanks for working to add so much to the geological description.
Very cool page! Great info and descriptions. Get any photos?
Thanks for the support. I know some people want to keep this site focused on one kind of mountain, but I am in favor of including lots of different types of mountains and letting people choose for themselves.
As for the pictues, I have some good shots but I have to find them and scan them in. Check back sometime next week and they should be posted.
Thanks again, Noah (Oregon)
Very complete and informative page. My son lives in Bend, so we'll surely try this one once we get moved out there!
Thanks for the kind words. I know PP and NC are not really alpine climbing sites but I think they are certainly very special for anyone who is interested in the mountains and therefore worth a page on SummitPost. Thanks Again, NOAH
Great. I like the photos and the approach information.
Excellent description of setting!
Good work and nice page!!
Noah is a great maintainer. He could maintain a tiger in a wet paper bag!
Jeff, You are a mad man! If I didn't know you were such a tough guy when it really counts (pushing the pace on the glaciers), I would reply with some disrespectful rant against East Coast "hikers" who come to Cascades searching for action! :)
Great page Noah. Have camped a couple of times at Paulina Lake. Uhh, drove to the top of Paulina Peak with my family.
What? Drove to the top! You should try that NE face :) I ran up the NW side on a trail that eventually faded into steep rubble and scree. It was a hot, steep run and well worth it. My wife mountain biked up and then raced down the forest service road (the one you must have taken). It was a great trip. NOAH
Helpful info. I'm going to do this friday.
I hope you have as much fun as I did. Please post a "summit log" entry and let us know what the conditions are like this time of year (snow, temp. and insects). Thanks, NOAH
