Three Fingered Jack
August 1, 2009
Friday evening, thanks to Sue Carey’s suggestion, we had an excellent potluck dinner at the Fish Hatchery across the Leaburg Dam. We then car camped at the PCT trailhead at Santiam Pass.
An before dawn start got us to “The Crawl” at about 9 a.m., with first summit before 10:30. We were headed back across “The Crawl” by noon, and were well off the mountain by the time the weather started moving in.
Congratulations are due to Bud, who first climbed this mountain in 1950, and to the two Sues—this was their first climb of it.
Climbers were April Anderson, Sue Carey, Doug Nelson, Bud Proctor, Sue Zeni and Wayne Deeter, leader.
