Highlights

  • Highest peak in the Wallowa Mountains
"Finally #10 for 4 days. The traverse from the Mid peak was worse than I had anticipated. The gendarmes required more climbing than I had thought, although the west side of all of them seemed like the way to go. A few high exposures with dire consequences, but fortunately there are only four gendarmes to get over. Once these are overcome the rest is just a walk up. Had a flock of tweety birds strafe me at the top which kind of shocked me, not sure what they were doing up at 9000 feet. " - oregon-mt-goat, Aug 30, 2018
"A huge classic into the heart of the Wallowas… with the ultimate grand finale once my phone got back in service. The Wallowas had beckoned for a while, but they're never "on the way" to anywhere. So finally I decided to just make it happen with a huge detour en route to CA from WA. After a flat I rolled in to Wallowa Lake, Oregon around 10pm… …and the 3:30am alarm felt like only a few minutes later. Struggled awake and while half-asleep fumbled through some gear manipulation. Finally started out at 4:30; it was already getting light, one of the longest days of the year. Didn’t see" - scott, Jun 20, 2015
