Meet in the Thielsen Trailhead parking area at 730AM Saturday, Sept. 25. Hike up and east 3 miles to the Pacific Crest trail. Cross it and hike an ascending traverse on a well worn climber’s trail (loose rack and scree) one mile up the West Ridge to the base of the summit horn’s east face. From the base of the horn, climb the southeast side on one short pitch of fairly solid class 3-4 rock. We will have ropes for the party, although the route is often done free. The summit is rather small, so we may have to take turns sitting on it. Elevation Gain, 4100 ft. Distance, 8 miles, round trip. Time, 6-9 hours. Return to cars by 5 PM. Spend the night camping at Diamond Lake.
