Oregon Ice


Recommended Posts

Being an ice climber and living in the Northwest can be brutal; it can leave you wondering about wandering. Following are some images from an Oregon ice climb that I hope provides some inspiration. Enjoy.


The Afterimage in the Strawberry Range.


First pitch December 2009.


The crux looms above.


Last pro for twenty feet or so.


Delicate moves on loose rock to reach the ice on pitch two.


Good ice on pitch three.


Top anchors have some history, these trees are sturdy!


I have known Steve for a long time, we do not climb together much but when we do it is always a good outing.


Rapping from the top.


My favorite shot! This exemplifies the steep terrain of this route. It is not always in this rough of shape. Depending on the year, it can be a solid pure ice route. It is however always a serious outing, lots of avalanche terrain surrounding this climb. To approach, go to Prairie City and head south towards the mountains and Strawberry Lake. From the trail head it is another 3.5 miles and couple of thousand feet gain. The route is around 8000'.
