Ascent Trip Report

Jackson County High Point

Mt. McLoughlin
Came in from the PCT TH in June in a LOT of snow. Hiked up from Freye Lake, a good base camp for summit bid at about 6,200 feet. The snow made for a strenuous but technically easy climb to the summit. Coming from Freye Lake, stay on a straight heading west toward the summit. Get too close to the northside and it's quite a drop off. Snow cornices can be misleading with their stability.
