Ascent Trip Report

Dean and I had just met Dennis the night before last, and the day before we three climbed Red Mountain in the southern Wallowas. On our Sacajawea attempt Dean's legs gave out at the end of the Thorp Creek valley where we started the final ascent to the summit. So Dennis and I went on without Dean, and Dean came back later to climb the peak. On the summit I completed the Oregon County Highpoints.

Celebrating my Oregon CoHP completion on the summit.

Dennis on the summit. His family had this photo displayed on the two monitors at the front of the chapel where his memorial service was held. Sure do miss that guy!
