NT and I skied up to Illumination rock for some rock shennanigans before skiing back to T-line.

Snow was variable but with a smooth surface, making for fun skiing from 9,000'.  Coverage remains intact to the parking lot.

I was glad to see a set of beautiful tracks on the upper white river glacier.  High-five to whoever laid it down in such good style.

Glad your ski was good.
Nice climb. If I'm ever thinking of hitting myself in the face with a hammer I'll come down and climb it instead Smiley
Most of your Oregonian Volcanic Plugs seem to have much better rock - right? Wink I had the "pleasure" of doing some climbing at Smith Rocks without bolts...Character building of sorts?

there some good trad at smith, but it's not granite.  it takes skill, ingenuity, and charm to place the gear.  Qualities which some washingtonians lack  Grin

When I placed gear at Smith Rocks I think I was a Californian. I certainly had charm back then before I got all old and water logged. Cry
