Ascent Trip Report

Thielsen was a big step up for me. I wasn't sure how I would handle climbing the pinnacle, as I had never really climbed rock at 9000 feet before. Anyway, this went off without a hitch. The hike up was very similar to the few cascade volcanoes scree hikes I had done so far, and the summit pinnacle was very solid with a well worn route. Ran into a group of climbers from U of O, who I enjoyed talking to on the summit. I was a little nervous climbing back down, but it went well, and gave me a lot of confidence going forward when taking on other "scrambly" mountains.
