September 6, 1975
We left Eugene around 6:00 p.m. on Friday evening, and arrived at Pole Creek
trail head at 9:30 p.m.
We then hiked to Soap Creek where we made our camp.
I woke up at 6:00 a.m. and then got everybody else up and made breakfast.
Started up the trail at 6:50 a.m., got to the saddle at 11:30 a.m. and had our
West up the ridge, crossed the dinner plate, and went up the chute and on top.
I got on top at l:55 p.m.
The chute did present a few problems because there were some unexpected obstacles
such as a few patches of ice left from the snow storm a week earlier.
I then let everybody rest for an hour on top, and then headed down at 3:00 p.m.
I went down the same way I came up and arrived back at camp at 8:00 p.m.
Those on the trip were
Bob and Jeff Fletcher,
Kevin McManigal, leader,
