"Day 1: packed in to tarn above Shake Lake Day 2: left camp at 4:15am, reached red saddle at 11am (very sandy slog), 3 pitches across snow, summited at 5pm 😧, back to red saddle at 9pm 😮, back to tent at 12:30am 😵. Day 3: hike out" - seancasserly, Jul 20, 2018
"Seeing poor prospects for our summit attempt of Rainier via the Emmons, we created a backup plan to climb Mount Jefferson and neighboring volcanic remnants instead. Permits were all taken for the Pamelia Lake Limited Entry Zone, so we parked at the gate on FS-750 and walked to the end of the road, departing around 3:00 PM. From the road’s end, we headed south and gained a low ridge that had a faint waytrail along it before last year’s fire. We followed the ridge to its intersection with the PCT and hung a right, following the trail to the Slate Lake/Coyote Lake area. We attempted to follow" - TynanRammGranberg, Jul 20, 2018
"Bushwacked up the SW Ridge from Pamelia Lake for 6.5 miles until we reached the bowl at 7600 ft. the first day. Suffered through 30 mph winds whipping the tent all night until we got up at 4am for the summit bid. Took another 3 hours to gain the Red Saddle, fortunately we were following a group from Eugene that placed some pro on the Death Chute and kicked in a fair path. Ended up to be too much for my climbing partner and he turned back after 20 ft. So for the second weekend in a row I went solo up to the summit to cap my bid for the 5 highest peaks in Oregon. Summited at 9:45 am and could no" - oregon-mt-goat, Sep 6, 2014
