Mt Thielsen via the West Ridge, R1 (CLIMB FULL)

Mt. Thielsen is known as the lightning rod of the cascades, recognized by the dramatically sharp rock pinnacle summit shooting into the sky. The climb consists of some class 3 and 4 hiking up the west ridge ending with a 50 foot section of class 5 climbing to the summit. On a clear day, expect views of the Sisters, Mt. Washington, and Three fingered Jack at least. Summit Post Link
