Ascent Trip Report

I came from the south side and crossing pyramid creek as well as the middle Santiam (naked and at night on the way back!)and witnessing my first real example of old growth Douglas Fir. Fantastic area that needs wilderness protection for the adjacent Pyramid Creek old growth wilderness as well (currently unprotected, but just as fantastic. The old logging roads are being reclaimed by nature with some tallish treesw now growing right in the middle. I came back a few years later and another slide has washed more road away and you have to walk a further 2 miles on this side now making getting to Chimney and back in a day even more difficult.
