I have been reading about the Sandy Glacier caves for some time and never really appreciated just how ephemeral they are until I heard about the partial collapse of Snow Dragon, the largest of the network, which occurred last month. At some point last Friday, after consulting Slagle about his trip up to McNeil Point earlier in the week, I knew that I had my window.
We left Portland convoy style, with Vanna White playing the role of proverbial vanguard on Friday around noon. By 16:30 tents were up at Skull Hollow Campground and we were entering the Park. We stayed near the entrance in the boulder field until just before sunset when we went back and got our fire going. Shootdang the High Desert gets cold at night. In any case, we were on the rocks at the Dihedrals by 7:30 and had a wonderful day.
We arrived at Timberline Lodge around midnight. My Toyota Previa, Vanna White, was outfitted with my couch cushions to allow two people to sleep comfortably. My climbing partner, whom we'll call Jackson, and I slept until around 3 when we eagerly awoke and each ate about a pound of trail mix.
