Ascent Trip Reportflash ascent with my brother Josh at night after driving across Oregon from the Wallowas. He took some cool night pics. Accidentally went up the west rim of the crater then crossed it with increasingly dim headlights. The first few thousand feet down through pumice were tedious until sunrise. Would've been sweeter as a spring ascent. I might come back.
