July 10, 1977
We all met at the South Eugene parking lot at 10:00 a.m.
From there we drove to the Pamelia Lake road, drove up the road where the
leader had a flat tire, and parked at the parking lot at the trailhead.
Started hiking at 1:00 p.m. into Pamelia Lake, and went into Hunts Cove on
the old trail; hiked out of Hunts Cove and walked cross-country toward
But the leader forgot the way and went the wrong way for a half mile, but
we eventually got to Shale Lake and got a good dinner, and went to bed.
Got up at 3:00 a.m., started up mountain at 4:30 a.m. via Goat Peak.
Arrived at the Red Saddle at 10:30.
From there we traversed a two-rope length snow field that was very steep,
and climbed the north peak, and were on the summit.
Climbed back down, crossed the snow field, hiked down the ridge, and
arrived at Shale Lake at 8:30 p.m.
At this point
Larry, Dave and Jeff Cash
had to hike out in order to be back to work Monday morning.
stayed at Shale Lake and hiked out Monday morning.
The hike out was very nice going through Pamelia Lake and looking
at the girls.
