Re: Indian Heaven Crest (northern section) - 10/6/19

Greetings - We must have missed you as I took part of that loop Sunday - PCT to Bird Mtn Ridge down to Cultus Lake to Lemei Rock. We descended Lemei Rock via the "easier gully", offtrailed it to Lemei Lake then took the old decommissioned Chenamus connector trail back to Placid Lake TH. Agreed - ver...

Re: McNeil - Yocum traverse, Mt Hood 2016 version

Great TR. Anyone knows the coordinate of the ice cave? The Sandy ice cave coordinates have been mentioned in some other TRs. The GPS track mentioned at the bottom of this TR will get you to the caves from McNeil Pt since we went right past them. The caves are also easily viewable from McNeil Pt and...

Re: McNeil - Yocum traverse, Mt Hood 2016 version

I think you could walk over the "47" without realizing it. It only looks like "47" from one angle. I started down that slope from McNeil Ridge once, and from the other side I was up on that higher area looking down at the caves, so I've done about half of it. Maybe this year... The route I took for...

Re: McNeil - Yocum traverse, Mt Hood 2016 version

nice report, this has been on my list for years doesn't look that steep or dangerous But, did you sleuth out the "47"? (You can see a "47" from the McNeil Ridge but I'm sure if you were there it would be unimpressive) Not too steep - just two moderately steep, loose sections. I didn't see the "47" ...

Re: McNeil - Yocum traverse, Mt Hood 2016 version

I was worried about the last crossing of the cave drainages Yes, it is a great loop but one cannot bet on completing it every time! So there will always be some uncertainty till all the streams have been crossed. That Muddy Fork crossing does look like a challenge - I am glad to see that Rigby is c...

Re: Keebler Rd Flax Pt Ham Salad via Bug Ridge Loony Balloon

Well done! How crippled are you after aforementioned sag?

I wonder how easy/hard/impossible it is to follow the ridgeline south to Phlox Pt?

Re: Hamilton Mtn, Phlox Pt, South Hardy Ridge Mar-19-2016

Nice TR - and very loyal little hiking companion! I had the good fortune to do this loop before they clear-cut that area at its N end - doing so opened some views but was otherwise not an improvement. Thanks for the reply! Rigby was exhausted after the hike, but perked up the next day. The views th...

Re: Hamilton Mtn, Phlox Pt, South Hardy Ridge Mar-19-2016

Thank you for posting! I saw someone post photos on facebook of a hike that looks similar: https://www.dropbox.com/s/xygt6ib47acb81o/Screenshot%202016-03-23%2016.53.54.png?dl=0 When I asked where it was, he declined to tell, so I was wondering if you think this is the same hike. Greetings - Thank y...
