T--V OOSTER Rotk, which offers par
Kf ticular difficulties to the skill
of the climber and which is be
lieved to have been scaled but four
times, three . of which were by Ma
zamas, has an interesting legend
which was woven about it by Indian
tribes living In the vicinity before the
coming of the white man.
In the early days of the world, so
says the legend, the God, Spielei, lived
on Coyote Island, at the Mouth of the
Deschutes River. This God had two
sons'by a mortal mother, Wootleat and
Cheaplan. The first was a scholar and
the second a great athlete and hunter.
Both of the sons loved the Goodess
Multnomah, who made her home down
the Columbia River below the abode
of Spielei. Both sons were very jeal
ous and their father finally grew tired
of hearing them quarrel over the beau
tiful goddess. He went to see her and
urged her to marry one of the sons
In order to put an end to the quarreling.
She laughed at him and made the old
God so angry that he laid violent hands
upon her. There was then a great
Sons Changed to Rock.
At last old Spielei began to prevail
and he raised a huge rock and dropped
it upon Multnomah. She struggled
away from beneath the stone, but left
behind her beautiful hair, which formed

his sons fighting over the Goddess on
the top of Wind Mountain. " In his
wrath he turned Cheaplan into what
is now known as Castle Rock and
from Wootleat he formed Rooster
Rooster Rock is said to have been
I first scaled by a Swedish sailor who
went up the river from Astoria to per
form the feat. After gaining the sum
mit, however, he is said to have been
unable to make the descent, and it
was necessary for a rope to be shot
When T. R. Conway and R. L. Mc
Leod, Mazamas, made their first as
cent of the rock early in the Summer
they found a pipe imbedded ii the top
of the rock, the only evidence left of
the sailor's climb. Mr. Conway and
Mr. McLeod made the ascent in just
21 minutes. The rock is 320 feet high
and much of the distance it over
hangs, making it exceedingly difficult
from the standpoint of the climber.
Mazamas Make Ascent.
Mr. Conway made his second ascent
of the rock on September 3, being ac
companied by C. W. Wortman. On the
following Sunday, September 12. he led
a small party of eight Mazamas to, the
top of the rock, first making his way
to the summit and anchoring ropes so
the less skillful climbers would have
no trouble. The Mazamas reaching the
top at that time, in addition to their
leader: C. H. Wortman. Arthur S. Pet

Because of the success of the climb
it is probable that it will be made the
objective of other climbs by the Ma
zamas in future.
