    February Climb of Mt. St. Helens


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Wendy Leigh Castleton told me she climbed Mt. St. Helens in late January, and this video is from that trip. Submitter kbeckwith9 helped Wendy, his niece, upload her video to CNN iReport, and this is the longer version of it. Near the end, Wendy points out where the climbers have been advised not to cross.

    Here is a spectacular video of a climb up Mt. St. Helens just a few days ago by Wendy Leigh Castleton of Portland. The video starts at the base and goes up to the summit and provides dramatic views of the Volcano cauldron. It will take you there, to experience what it's like to hike the Mt. in the winter, and what it's like to look over the edge of the volcano into the smoking cauldron. We all pray for the survival of the man who fell into the cauldron yesterday. All these views follow his and all the climbers to the rim of Mt. St. Helens vocano.
