The Goldendale Sentinel - Headlines & History since 1879

At the top of the world


Contributed: Tim Barta

Gary Erickson, of Goldendale, and Tim Barta (formerly of Goldendale, but currently residing in Corvallis, Ore.) reached the summit of Mt. Hood on May 11. The group left Timberline Lodge at about 11:40 p.m. Friday, May 10. Three members of the group reached the top at around 8:20 a.m. Saturday morning. According to Erickson, the weather was the “second best” out of his many climbs of the mountain. It was a memorable trip for the group; stepping over a deep crevasse and climbing a section of steep ice in the last several hundred feet of the climb.
