July 27, Sahale Peak, Cascade Pass NCNP
« on: 07/29/13, 09:22 AM »

Sometimes last minute decisions work out great.  Originally planned to do Adams with one other rider and some climbing friends.  Friday afternoon I found out about the wildfire on Satus Pass and 97 closure.  Not wanting to deal with I5 I pulled the plug and suggested Sahale.  The coverage looked good two week ago when I was out there. 

I'll write up a full trip report on my blog later, but cliff notes:

Made the summit.  Should have brought a full rope not 30m.
Upper slopes and lower slopes rode great. 
My light shell matches my gore pants and makes me look like papa smurf.

Sahale from the arm:

Looks awesome - wish I could have made it out there with you!  Bro!

BTW, is that a Sterling Fusion Nano AT rope coil?

Thanks Mike!

BP next season we have to get out here!  That's a edelweiss twin 30m 8mm.  We had another team on the summit top rope us off a rap anchor, faster and safer then setting our own pro.
