This volcano is one of Oregon Cascades, its a series of high pinnacles whose sheer pointed summits remind some of us of Swizerland's Matterhorn. Mt. Thielsen is 9178 feet tall. There is a trail to the top. Four miles of it is the PCT and the last mile is scramble, before you summit this one you come to a rock called chicken rock and that's because most turn back here only 80-100 feet from the top. At this point the rest of the trip is a vertical climb with foot and hand holds. enjoy
