September 4-6, 1993
The minimum party of three left Eugene at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday.
We arrived at Pole Creek Springs Trailhead at 1:30 after a good lunch at Coyote Creek Restaurant in
We made the 7-mile backpack to Camp Lake by 5:00 p.m.
The climb started at 7:00 a.m. on Sunday.
Chris and Kristen made the summit in three and a half hours.
The leader had them in sight at all times (almost) but this old man too an hour longer to the top!
We were back in base camp by 2:00 p.m. to enjoy some time by the lake.
Weather was great for all three days. We backpacked out on Monday morning (Labor Day).
The two climbers who gave leader Wes Prouty a good workout were Kristan Kaminski and Chris Steele.
