September 15, 1991
At the Diamond Lake Campground, Jane, Jan and John put up their tents and took a quick swim.
Dan Bates and Dallas Hemphill arrived in time to join the crowd for pizza at the local restaurant.
We were at the Mt. Thielsen trailhead by 7:00 the next morning, where we saw Gene Thaxton’s car.
We bounded up the trail in hopes that we could catch up with him.
Alas, his 15-minute head start put him on top long before we reached Chicken Point at 12:00.
Jane and John set up the ropes.
We ate lunch on top and started down from Chicken Point around 2:30, and were back at the trailhead
It was perfect weather for a climb and for taking photographs.
Climbers were Dan Bates, Dallas Hemphill, John & Jan Jacobsen, and Jane Hackett (leader).
