A different Olympic circle

Posted by Ken Campbell February 11, 2010 1 Comment 656 views

I should probably have mentioned this site a year ago. Steph Abegg, local Northwest climber and photographer (check out her awesome night shots – like the one above), has put together an impressive backcountry/climbing resume that should manage to inspire even the most lethargic of armchair explorers. I went to hear her speak last year and came away with a dozen new places I need to visit.

The one that got to me immediately was her account of an 8-day traverse around Mount Olympus: bushwacking, climbing, high alpine route finding… It’s a trip I might not have put together on my own, but now that I’ve seen what she did, I am starting to envision a few variations on the route that look very, very interesting.

I need to live to be at least 300 years old.
