Mt. Thielsen

I can check the box next to another Oregon spike, Mt. Thielsen

Yesterday a group of us from Cascade Mountaineers submitted the 9,184 ft. peak and next-door neighbor to Crater Lake. We had an amazing window of weather; sunshine with not so much as a breeze. Even after copious amounts of sunscreen application, my face still got obliterated. The total car-to-car time was around 11 hours, certainly on the slow end of things. However we had a mixed group with a few people dropping out near the top due to fatigue or not feeling it. We also had another delay at the summit pinnacle as we waited for a four-person group to finish belaying. All in all, it was a great climb in a beautiful area.

Check out the photo gallery to see more pictures from the trip.
