West Slabs of Mt Olympus / by Eric Dacus

Saturday’s adventures: fun simul-climb up the West Slabs of Mount Olympus above Salt Lake, involved some downclimbing but without (much) bushwacking.

The climb up is definitely easier than the downclimbing back into the gulley, next time I might wait till later in the season when its not as warm…
