Rowdy’s Dream Blog #234: We plan to climb Mount Sumner.

I am driving to Oregon on the freeway. My orientation in the car is awkward. I sit sideways in the passenger seat and steer from the passenger door as I look over my left shoulder at the road. As I come up on a slow moving semi-truck I realize that maneuvering around it will be difficult. Towering above the horizon is mount Sumner, which we plan to climb. It is buttressed with cliffs, capped with snow and half covered in clouds. We arrive at the base and prepare for our ascent. I stop at an ATM at the base and meet another climber who wants to join us in case his 'protection breaks loose'. I tell him that we didn't bring any technical climbing gear and we thought we could just walk up. He didn't think that would be possible.
