After a successful descent of the crater the group had to climb back up. One member of the group fell into a deep moat near the top, which collapsed the snowpack below and swept everyone into a crevasse. Self rescue was needed as well as an alternative route out. That's when the marathon hike started. This was before St Helens farted and every geologist in the world came to see. Govy had a problem with poaching. People hiking up with cameras in such to catch a glimpse, maybe of their last moment in life due to unstable activity. I like to think that eyes are watching now. Maybe when things peter out a bit.

From what I've been told, it didn't sweep anyone into a crevasse, but the slab did give one lucky person a quick ride back to the bottom of the crater...

Well that's how it was told to me and I heard it from the horses mouth. Maybe a little spice was added.

I can understand the temptation after seeing some potentially gnary lines last summer from the lookout area.

Now I'm scared. :shock:

How many hours is the drive from Seattle to Marble Mountain sno park? Looks like it would be a tough day trip.
