Mt. Olympus (W. Peak, '88)

Mt. Olympus (West Peak) - 1988

On 7-22-88, 3 of us set out to climb Mt. Olympus. We started at the Hoh Ranger station at 6:15 am.  We reached our camp at Glacier Meadows at 5:15 pm. We left camp to climb the W. Peak the next day at 5:00 am. We reached the summit at 2:00 pm.  We returned to camp at 7:00 pm; we then hiked to Elk L. for our 2nd night on the trail.  That evening we celebrated w/ a “Victory dinner” that included Swiss cheese, salami, “Gold Fish” crackers, cashews, canned pears [courtesy of Jim!] & Jiffy pop.  The next day we reached the trailhead at 4:45 pm. It was a busy, but rewarding 3 day trip!
