Historic Hood River
Posing at Cloud Cap
I think this Anne Lang view of climbers near Cloud Cap is a companion image to this image from last week. As has been noted these images are posed, and we have no way to be sure they actually climbed in this gear. What we do know is that Will Langille regularly took Cloud Cap guests to the top of the mountain in the 1890s. The Mazamas archivist has positively identified this image from an 1896 climb, which might give a better idea of the actual clothes they wore to climb the mountain. The Mazamas keep the log books from the summit which show this party signing in on July 5.
