Ascent Trip Report

Reminds me of Mt. Thielsen climb in the Oregon Cascades without the pumice dust.

Following the runnel up the northern flank makes for a bit of unpredictability. Like Mt. Thielsen this is volcanic debris that is like ball-bearings. I almost forgot the climber's adage: "two steps up and one back down"

November 18, 2010 reclimbed it solo; overcast day. Someone put a flag tribute to the POWS and started a register.
