  1. conditions on Jefferson

    We climbed Jefferson to ski during the first week of June. We took the SW Ridge. You can drive to the Pamelia Lk. TH now, and you DO need a permit to access from that TH. This is mainly due to the heavy use the trail gets from day hikers. There are no climbing permits. The Milk Creek gully, which we paralleled on the accent, had not been filled in with slide debris, which you would typically expect, and some people use the gully for direct (sometimes risky) access. Maybe the upper faces are still set to avy?? We could skin from the TH to Pamelia Lk., then had to hike from Pamelia Lk. to the PCT, at which point we could put the skins on again.

  7. Hurley River Road

    It's all clear and melting very fast. My buddy drove it the day it opened in a low 2-wheel drive. We drove it again last weekend. 1 meter of snow at pass. Good, smooth skiing snow above the Sephamore Lks. elevation.

  14. [TR] Middle Sister- North Ridge 6/16/2004

    Nice report and pics. My wife and I summited Middle Sas the first week of June, and from the saddle up, (the north ridge),it was really firm and wind blown, while the Hayden and Prouty Point were perfect corn. I think it would be one or the other as far as that goes, but decending the South face of North sister, and onto the Hayden could be perfect all the way down.....If anyone cares. Beautious sun ra-ise Timmy. Here is a sun set from Pilot Butte one night.(attachment)Oh, it's too big file size.
