Ascent Trip ReportSuccessful Mazamas climb - September 2015. Northwest Ridge (Catwalk Route)
After a 5am start from the trailhead, we arrived Green Lakes a little after 7am/ After filtering water, we continued up an unmaintained trail to a saddle on the northwest ridge of the mountain and up to the summit block. We used two fixed lines to get to the top. We descended the second fixed line and then rappelled down on the first fixed line. We were delayed at that point because two climbers from a different party tried to summit without ropes so we had to help them back to the base of the summit block. We "scree skied" down from that point and back to the lakes for a refill of water and then out to the cars at 7:30pm
