Mt McLoughlin

Saturday–Sunday, August 12–13, 2017
Leader: Kimberly Van Winkle
Climb: 10.5 miles, 4000 ft

Our group traveled to the Fish Lake area the evening before the climb to get a short night of sleep before an early start; thankfully the helicopter picking up water for nearby small forest fires finished it's job before we needed to crawl into our tents. We started before sunrise and were rewarded with a nearly empty trail on the ascent and for a short time we had the summit to ourselves. We had a great view of Mt Shasta to the south, but the north was obscured by smoke. Some in the group were new to Obsidian Climbing tradition and introduced to Summit Treats (also known as Leader Treats). All in the group made it to the summit; it was a beautiful day to be on a mountain.

Members: Kimberly Van Winkle, Rebecca Eastwood, David Lodeesen, Marguerite Cooney, Michael King.
