sufferjoyRoute Climbed: South ridge Date Climbed: October 3, 2003  Sucess!


I did not want to go by the hikers trail, so hiked straight up from the road and got up the ridge between Diller peak and Brokeoff, then ascended the ridge (South?) to the Brokeoff's summit. Folks: please don't do this alone, unroped, with no partner and no protection (like I foolishly did) at this time of year (Summer-Fall) -- the rock is rotten (very loose), and falling from the ridge to either side may be fatal. I had my reasons to do it this way back then, but if I were to repeat this ascent, I would take it more seriously.

Great view of Lassen from the top of Brokeoff peak.

The side facing Lassen (must be the east side) looks pretty technical, and I wonder if people rock-climb there (I did not see anyone there though); Although climbing there in the summer may be quite dangerous due to rotten volcanic rock.

Short, enjoyable snowshoe from Hwy 89 in perfect weather (cold, clear, still). I encountered a fair amount of powder up through Forest Lake, then surprisingly steep (30°), icy snow on the way up to the peak. It was a bit spicy just with snowshoes, and I even found myself wishing in one or two places that I'd brought axe/crampons. Hadn't expected that at this time of year.

Beautiful day for a climb. Climbed Lassen Peak earlier in the day. Trail was hard to follow through the snow patches up to timber line. Beautiful views.

My 17th California County High Point. Saw 4 others on quick trip up and back. Could see Shasta, Mount Eddy, Black Butte, and Castle Crags to the North but hazy conditions made the picture lousy. I saw what I belive was a beaver along the trail near the stream, hard to tell since I didn't see a tail. Also, why is there no summit register up there?

Took a cross country route from the entrance station to the south ridge and on up to the top. The south slope was hard and icy. Saw one other climber come up after I reached the top. He left without noticing me as I had walk along the ridge to get some nice views of the north face. Shasta was clearly visible.

A crisp late Oct. day. Did not see another soul on the mountain. Days like that seem to be getting rare on other mts.

Quick climb on a clear day. The South Slope is very easy, once on top the summit drops away into it's northern cliffs. Four others were up there with teles. I made a ski descent.
