We had a very nice climb of Brokeoff along with tons of other folks. But hey, it's a National Park, right?

Hot July hike, great views from the top, zero snow on the ground anywhere. Much nicer hike than Lassen is.

Water. Visiting this peak this time of year you know its Spring by the amount of water running off. The first third of the route with its creek crossings and such are very moist. The middle third of the route with significant snow coverage at times is another story. Up near the ridge, I left the snow-covered trail, opting for cross-country. What a beautiful alpine route! And at the top, you've got commanding views in all directions.

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.

Planned to climb Lassen but the trail was undergoing maintenance. Beautiful views of Lassen and Shasta. Need to go back and take the family exploring around this neat park.

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.

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.
