cturturicaSummer Ascent  Sucess!


Did this a few times too. Its a more scenic climb than Lassen Peak. Did it once in the same day with Lassen. Also done part of the face free solo scramble. There is a chute on the right side of the middle when you can see the face and the scree slope from the main trail. It is quite easy if you feel comfortable climbing about 20ft unopened up a vertical ledge. That is the biggest one. The others are about 5-10ft. The only other thing is be careful, if you go with a friend, not to send the loose rocks down the chute as you climb. The best thing is to stay close together. Shasta and Lassen are both visible and look great from up top. Planning to go up in winter some time and do some snowboarding. Maybe some ice/rock mixed climbing if it forms on the face would be cool.

I slept in my camper at the visitor center parking lot, just have to pay the normal tent campsite fee. I overslept so didn't start the hike until about 9:30 am. I only saw 1 other person leave ahead of me, and there was only 1 other vehicle in the lot, but I met a man coming down, maybe he was camped at the campground and just walked to the TH. Total time was 2:52 RT, including 10 min. on top.

Had a great day in the park. The trail is very well maintained and at a reasonable grade for the whole family. Great views of the region at the top.

rhyangSouth slope  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 10, 2011


Relaxed snowshoeing outing. Snowcamped at 8400' the night before. Something like 14' of snow at the SW visitor center. Traversed ridge to the NW and got a nice view of the cornices.

Have done this one several other times in the winter. Not much avy hazard. One time in December 2006 the last couple hundred feet to the summit was mostly wind-scoured rime ice, glad I brought crampons.

SnowsloggerSki Trip  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 19, 2010


Good ski trip but due to lack of snow on the road further up I bailed on a plan to also ski Diller, Eagle, and Lassen. Will be back for those for sure.

Got to Lassen a day earlier than group of friends and did this solo....very enjoyable. A lot of wildfire smoke in the air gave a brownish tint to the views however. Windy at top. Enjoyed!! Photos: http://www.meetup.com/SuperFab/photos/401605/

Made that left turn at the bridge and just kept on hiking. Lassen has always helped to take the mind off a girl.

hgrapid, same bs happened to me...hiked back down a little to get around the "guard" on Lassen, ended up on Bumpus Hell and Brokeoff anyways. Nicer hike than Lassen, with good views from the top, especially of Shasta.

Made it all the way to the park and it turns out the trail to Lassen Peak itself was closed due to a freak rock slide killed a young child. So, we hiked Brokeoff Mountain instead. We also hiked the Bumpass Hell trail to the hot springs.

Setup camp near Forest Lake and went up at 7pm to enjoy the clear weather and nearly full moon. Four hours round trip on snowshoes with alternating heavy and thin snow conditions.
