div style=”text-align: center;”br //divdiv style=”text-align: left;”Last weekend Sam, Jaime, Midge, Scott, Allen Watson, and I went on a 7.5 hr. mountain adventure. Different than most weekend over-distance workouts, we brought out the cramp ons, ropes, harnesses and ice axes. After beginning with a 3.5 hr climb up through the trees and into the gully we started our true mountaineering excitement. Roping in and belaying down the steep snow slope, we rounded the mountain and headed up the glacier on the north side of the Silver Star. The last part of the climb was an hour scramble up the rocks to the summit. The summit was a rock only large enough for the three of us, Sam, Jaime and I to sit and uncomfortably clutch on. Jaime and I were brave enough to stand up for less than a second, but quickly sat back down suddenly feeling how exposed we were. After taking in the views of all the surrounding mountains and planning our next adventure, we ate some food, hydrated and headed back down. The highlight of our decent was glissading down the glacier. The six of us sat down and ripped down the snow field, snow flying everywhere experiencing true mountain sledding. The last couple of hours was steep downhill hiking, reminding our legs what they were meant for. It was a great adventure, and just a warm up for Mt. Adams which we will be climbing at the PNSA camp in Trout Lake next week.br //diva onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_l4L_01UOs1s/SletTBh2W2I/AAAAAAAAAF8/3P9F4ZuJW3A/s1600-h/IMG_1218.JPG”img src=”http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_l4L_01UOs1s/SletTBh2W2I/AAAAAAAAAF8/3P9F4ZuJW3A/s320/IMG_1218.JPG” border=”0″ alt=”” id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5356940824120023906″ style=”display: block; margin-top: 0px; margin-right: auto; margin-bottom: 10px; margin-left: auto; text-align: center; cursor: pointer; width: 320px; height: 180px; ” //adiv style=”text-align: center;”span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”text-decoration: underline; “Sadie, Jaime and Sam/span/divdiv style=”text-align: center;”br //divdiv style=”text-align: center;”a onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_l4L_01UOs1s/SletrbTSUjI/AAAAAAAAAGE/8EgYwjZeZ_w/s1600-h/IMG_1221.JPG”img src=”http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_l4L_01UOs1s/SletrbTSUjI/AAAAAAAAAGE/8EgYwjZeZ_w/s320/IMG_1221.JPG” border=”0″ alt=”” id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5356941243355124274″ style=”display: block; margin-top: 0px; margin-right: auto; margin-bottom: 10px; margin-left: auto; text-align: center; cursor: pointer; width: 320px; height: 180px; ” //a/divdiv style=”text-align: center;”span class=”Apple-style-span” style=””span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”text-decoration: underline;”Scott /spanspan class=”Apple-style-span” style=”text-decoration: underline;”belaying/spanspan class=”Apple-style-span” style=”text-decoration: underline;” Sadie down the top steep section of the snow field/span/span/divdiv style=”text-align: center;”span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”text-decoration: underline;”br //span/divdiv style=”text-align: center;”span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”color: rgb(0, 0, 238); text-decoration: underline;”span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”color: rgb(0, 0, 0); “a onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_l4L_01UOs1s/SleuG5cOPeI/AAAAAAAAAGM/BxsNEcYA82w/s1600-h/IMG_1228.JPG”img src=”http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_l4L_01UOs1s/SleuG5cOPeI/AAAAAAAAAGM/BxsNEcYA82w/s320/IMG_1228.JPG” border=”0″ alt=”” id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5356941715302137314″ style=”display: block; margin-top: 0px; margin-right: auto; margin-bottom: 10px; margin-left: auto; text-align: center; cursor: pointer; width: 320px; height: 240px; ” //a/span/span/divdiv style=”text-align: center;”span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”text-decoration: underline;”Sam kicking in steps for the rest of the group near the top of the snow field/span/divdiv style=”text-align: center;”br //divdiv style=”text-align: center;”span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”text-decoration: underline;”a onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_l4L_01UOs1s/Sleui2L6O7I/AAAAAAAAAGU/c1VDSQ5Ncao/s1600-h/IMG_1232.JPG”img src=”http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_l4L_01UOs1s/Sleui2L6O7I/AAAAAAAAAGU/c1VDSQ5Ncao/s320/IMG_1232.JPG” border=”0″ alt=”” id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5356942195464747954″ style=”display: block; margin-top: 0px; margin-right: auto; margin-bottom: 10px; margin-left: auto; text-align: center; cursor: pointer; width: 320px; height: 240px; ” //a/span/divdiv style=”text-align: center;”Jaime, Sadie and Sam on the top of Silver Star/divdiv style=”text-align: center;”br //divdiv style=”text-align: center;”a onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_l4L_01UOs1s/SlevjoUeOMI/AAAAAAAAAGk/t4WtVyGr7Gk/s1600-h/IMG_1234.JPG”img src=”http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_l4L_01UOs1s/SlevjoUeOMI/AAAAAAAAAGk/t4WtVyGr7Gk/s320/IMG_1234.JPG” border=”0″ alt=”” id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5356943308434061506″ style=”display: block; margin-top: 0px; margin-right: auto; margin-bottom: 10px; margin-left: auto; text-align: center; cursor: pointer; width: 320px; height: 240px; ” //a/divdiv style=”text-align: center;”Sadie standing up on the top for a brief second….
