August 2, 1975
This climb was, for the most part, uneventful.
We left camp at 8:00 a.m. Saturday and all climbers were on the summit by noon.
The day was quite hazy, though we could see the snow-white crown of Shasta to
the South and Thielsen to the North.
A few amateur painters have been at work on some of the summit rocks; these
needless efforts will never make the Louvre, unfortunately they will have to
stay on McLoughlin ’til weathered off.
Also, I noticed a telephone wire trailing down from the summit lookout, now defunct,
which should have been removed when the lookout was de-commissioned.
All climbers were down by 3:00 and on their way home at various times.
Glenn Meares completed his 10th peak effort; congratulations Glenn.
