But it is still poor compared to the Sierras or North Cascade. I have climbed this route at least four times. The last time I climbed it, my climb partner, Paige and I had a very fun and rewarding climb.Route: With the exceptions of the starting dihedral and a “V” chimney on the summit massive there are multiple ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Oregon
