Response to 2004 Obituaries

 

On the heels of legendary climber Pete Schoening comes the death of another pioneering Seattle area mountaineer on December 4, 2004. Othello “Phil” (O.P.) Dickert was ninety-five. His major first ascents during the 1930s included Mt Goode, Mt Challenger, and Spire Point in the Cascades.
His later achievements can provide inspiration to the youth-challenged. At age 63 he ascended the three major volcanoes in Mexico (Orizaba, Popo, and Ixta by nickname). At age 68 he ascended Aconcagua, the roof of the Western Hemisphere. At age 78 he ascended major mountains in Canada including Robson and Garibaldi.
