We have one campsite with limited space at Cougar Rock Campground for Saturday night, and space available at other campsites following the climb for Sunday night. More details on acceptance. If you stay at the campground with us, please be prepared to share the campsite fee, no more than $10/night.
Plan to meet at 6:00 am at Snow Lakes Trailhead. Please plan to be ready to start hiking at 6:30 am.
The climb will move at a consistent pace, minimizing breaks but taking them as needed. After ascending snow above Snow Lakes, we will have a small scramble to the saddle, and then a traverse over to the base of the summit pinnacle. After that, some easy 5th class to the top. Then we will rappel the pinnacle, and descend the same route.
Robin and I will be leading an optionally linked climb on Monday and will be staying in the park. It is possible to return to Portland on Sunday, or to stay in the park on Sunday night.
Priority will be given to novice climbers (and a few more experienced). Diversity, equity, and inclusion will be considered in the team selection process.
Registration is Closed
