How much fire haze on WA Pass?

Recommended Posts

Anyone been up to WA Pass on 8/3? Wondering if the haze is less up there than down in the valley.

I climbed on the East Face of LIberty Bell on Wednesday and it was damn near perfect. MUCH worse down valley in Mazama. Couldn't see the wine spires for most of the day but up at the pass itself condition were good.

 

Worth noting I'm an east-sider and quite use to smoke. Unless my eyes are burning and i'm coughing I dont really notice it.

I was up there last week and it was bad. Parties were using wands for the approach to the Beckey route. Bring a PLB and an O2 canister. You may be able to get by with an N95 facemask.
