Dreary forest snowshoe slog to begin with, and the "scenic" railroad hike is less than pleasurable, but once you hit the ridge it's a joy. Great new years hike. Some of the best views I've seen in this area.

This peak was easy-going. Eric, Fletcher, Rob, Sergey, and I hiked up the snowy forested NE ridge slopes until reaching the east ridgetop at ~5000' elevation. From there, it looked like *a lot* of snowshoers and/or cross-country skiers had been following the ridgetop to the summit. The summit has great views, especially ofthe Chiwaukums, Jim Hill Mountain, and the Rock/Mastiff/Howard conglomerate. Highly recommended peak!

Snowshoed this with Bryan in low visibility. The E ridge itself was pretty fun but we encountered chunky, icy, deadfall-y snow in the trees that I wouldn't expect until late April, Welcome to the cascades I guess.

I went without snowshoes a good ways which made the trip very tiring for me. For me it was harder than climbing Mount Rainier.

Snow was deep, temps were well below freezing, snow was flying, summit was breezy... It was a great winter destination. Not sure if our ascent was the typical route up but we found an easier way descending the NE ridge.

Charybdis hosted this wonderful winter snoeshoe. My brother Josh, his friend Matt Lemke and a couple dogs (Rex and Holly) came with us. Snow was good until the last half mile which was three feet of powder. I swam to the top! Charybdis kicked my butt on this one and my brother put up a nice report on nwhikers.net. Great mountain for harsh winter weather.

I've been up three times in winter on snowshoes. Each trip was via a different route. Finally did the usual NE ridge this past winter. It is the easiest route. All three were a lot of fun.

It was totally clear on the drive in until we crossed over the pass and from then on it snowed for the rest of the trip. No views and a severe wind chill on the summit, but fun all the same. Here is the route recorded by my GPS. It is a kml file and should be viewed in Google Earth.

A nice spring day for skiing. Good corn on the upper slopes, but a bit sloppy down low. Had the mountain to ourselves on this particular day.
