Mt Washington, Oregon
« on: 05/29/12, 06:49 AM »

Mt Washington:
Car 4700'
Top 7000'
2300' climb
2000' descent
.86 or 86% Joy/Glide

Great day despite low viz.  Never saw the summit or more than half way across a bowl. 

Access was great.  Looked like two snowboarder tracks and two skier tracks into the first bowl. (Looked like really good skiers by the location and amt of turns.

Climbed to the top of North Headwall and sent a line/chute to skiers right. Conditions were ankle deep slow and wet.  With minimal hissers and rollers that you could let pass.  Traversing out/back to the The climbers ridge we hit the first bowl and follow tracks put in by the 'A' team in the Approach Bowl/Chute.

Good fun was had on the descent down the "rodeo/wind lip" in headed into the woods.

Now is the time, condtions, access and exit are ripe.
