Nice work fellows. Here's a pic of the Diller Headwall from some distance to give folks a sense of it's beauty.

Great shot stuka. I have been on all the mountains in there but I do not know that angle. Is that from the Tam McArthur Rim?

Here is one of shredOR from last year when we were headed back from Middle Sister to our camp at Green Lakes.

Been getting the volcano fever lately as well. A buddy and I were planning to get up to snowdome this saturday, but we got a late start from Corvallis and didn't have time to make the long hike up past Tilly Jane from the TH. Instead we decided to skin up to Illumination rock and take a look at the Reid glacier/headwall. Great spring corn when we headed back down to Timberline at about 4. The snow got a bit sticky when we got close to the lodge though. It was a great day to be above the clouds!

Solo trip to Hood a few weeks back. Here it is in the morning sun. I rode the line near the cliffs on the far right side of the photo.
Image

There were a few people on the South Climb route that day. You can see people on the summit and above old chute if you look closely enough. There were butt scootchers and people fed up with the slow moving line and people scraping down the still frozen faces on skis. I was alone.
Image

Looking down my line.
Image

These crevasses were LONG. Luckily I found a bridge across them.
Image

Last weekend ShredOR and I put in a long day of exploring on Jefferson that led to some fun stuff. ShredOR way up high on the ridge.
Image

After waiting a couple of hours for soft enough snow on our intended line, we got to ride. Shred dropping past me once I could see that the line went.
Image

Image

Our line was the crooked chute pretty much center of the photo
Image

After a bit more climbing, we even got some great turns on the way out. Morgan might have some shwacking photos of the forest below. Jefferson is not the easiest mountain to travel cross country on, as others have found out.
Image

By myself again, the next day I had one more line to hit on N. Sister for the year. I woke up earlier than I needed so I took a bit of a tour before heading to my climb. N. Sister has some personality.
Image

At the top of my line, it looked like this. Just don't go too far to either side. And don't fall.
Image

It is the snowy ridge heading diagonally to the right across the middle of this photo.

The next day, June 2nd found us touring the north side of Three Fingered Jack.....

Awesome stuff Matt! Cool shots. I really like the riding one at the top of the chute at Paulina.

UPGRAYEDD, you and Ryan will need to come up next year after your season is done. I'll be back down there mid January. Super stoked for hopefully a better snow year.
