Three Fingered Jack

September 15-16, 1973

We gathered at the South High parking lot at 11 a.m. Sat. and after the normal amount of confusion, left for the mountains. We arrived at Santiam Summit about 1:30 and started up the Skyline Trail, dodging hunters and fighting a stiff, cold east wind. We hiked about three miles in and camped just over the crest of the ridge above Martin and Summit Lakes. The cold east wind continued all night and was up to 25 mph when we got up at 5 Sunday. We climbed the South Ridge narrowly reaching the crawl ahead of a larger party of Mazamas. The climb from the Crawl to the pinnacle was once again very windy and cold, but all managed to make it successfully. Making it were: Dick Converse, Keith Hatch, Mark Reed, Rich Temple and Ric Craven, leader.
