WHY - GET INVOLVED WITH APEXCHALLENGE 2019

Less Crowded than National Parks

A compelling Bucket List item

 

Other things to see in the Vicinity - Timberline Lodge, Portland Oregon & Multnomah Falls - all very interesting

Always Leave the HP better than it was found

For some people:

 

APEX ACHIEVEMENTS ARE ARDUOUS ADVENTURES

 

For most people:

 

SUMMITS ARE SPECIAL SERENE & SERENDIPITOUS SPOTS TO SURVEY SURROUNDINGS

 

HOW - Need climbing helmet, long ice axe, crampons, good navigation skills

 

COMMENTS: A very serious Mountain - I've attempted it twice.  Near each time I was on the Mountain, a climber more experienced and skilled than me died on the Mountain.
