June 19-20, 1976
We started climb from Mt. Thielsen Trail parking lot at South end
of Diamond Lake at 7 a.m.
After about one mile we were on 4 to 5 ft. of snow which lasted till we
were well up the scree slope on the west side of mountain.
We reached summit at noon, after a slow, easy climb.
Back to cars at 5 p.m. just about hour before lightning and rain began.
