Mt. Washington

September 26, 2009

Friday night, after hearing from the Mazama leader that he intended to start hiking his ten at 6 a.m., we decided to get a jump on them, and leave at 4:30. Due to our early start we enjoyed a great view of the sunrise from the north ridge. The prevailing winds had shifted direction in the last few days, so smoke from the Tumblebug fire in the Middle Fork district was minimal--from the summit we could see it billowing off in the distance by Diamond Peak. We headed back down after spending more than an hour on the summit, basking in the sun and drinking in the fantastic views. We were able to pass by the Mazama horde without difficulty, which was just then ascending the second pitch.

Many thanks to Roy for driving and for providing the portable kitchen and furniture for our evening potluck, and to Sue for her invaluable help as assistant leader of the climb.

Climbers were Roy McCormick Sue Zeni, Charlie Tilt and Wayne Deeter, leader.
