Mt Washington Climb

This has to be one of our most treacherous but beautiful climbs ever, as three climbers from OSU ascend Mount Washington in the central Oregon Cascades. Using harnesses and ropes, they take us along narrow ledges and up sheer cliffs while trying to avoid falling rocks — it may be dangerous, but what a view from the top!
