Ascent Trip Report

4/30/06 Went not sure if I would have a legitimate chance to summit since I only had a couple of hours in the morning. At 4200 feet in a clearing, the summit looked so far away, I thought I was just on a recon trip. Kept going and skirting rocks until I found some snowy slopes up the south side. I looked at my altimeter and saw I was only a few hundred feet below the summit so I just kept going and tagged this one in 2 hours and 15 minutes. Saw the summit register in the cairn on top and was surprised to see only three names signed in the last 3 years. The most recent was SP's own Dennis Poulin who I have climbed with in the past. Boogied down quickly after using the GPS and was back in Portland in time to go to a dinner party where I ate entirely too much. :- )

6/8/14 Did this one with no snow. Don't do it. Worst bushwhack ever. Donated a lot of blood and skin from my legs on the way up. Tagged Knob Peak too. Quads were cramping on the way down. Do you know how hard it is to hike with stiff Frankenstein legs through thick rhodie bushwhackiness. Do this one when it's covered in snow. It's manageable then. It's just crazy when melted out.
