A nice hike to the summit. A lot more fun than Lassen Peak, more wildlife and a nice swim at Forest Lake on the way down, and nobody on the trail. Realized there is enough time to climb Lassen and Brokeoff in the same day.

I recommend Lassen in the morning before it gets crowded (i.e. 9am) and Tahama after lunch although bring lots of water the first couple miles in the forest were hot. Definitely appreciated the diversity of scenery and vegetation (vs Lassen).

Solo. Nice hike, but f'in hot. Stopped and took a nap in the shade. I wanted to traverse to Mt Lassen, but couldn't find a safe place to descend to the ridge. Hitched hiked back to Summit L campgrounds.

A quick day hike with Rick Kent. Snow all the way from the SW entrance parking lot. Rick had snowshoes and I didn't = some postholing. Still we made up & down in 3 hrs or so. Killer view down the north face of Brokeoff.

Enjoy great views without the crowded summit. The meadows and alder groves on the way up are lovely.

highicenorth face , winter  Sucess!
the year may have been earlier, but I finally found a nutty partner to join me on a line I had been scouting for years. We did it in Febuary and it was a fine alpine climb of AI2, WI3, 5.6. very unstable rock, expect manky belays. Surmounting the cornice at the top was the grand finish! leave enough rope to get you past the fracture line to belay the 2nd! it was about 30 ft back when we did it. another variation to our left was climbed the following season by a different party.

Hiked Snow Mtn around noon, Brokeoff in the late afternoon. The weather was crappy all day and I got no views on either peak. Sigh. Trip Report

A day after the congestion on Lassen, my wife and I hiked this lovely, underrated peak and saw only 10 others the whole day. Somehow she got a bee in her sweatpants!

Nice hike. Still a lot of snow on the trail. We lost the trail several times but we manage to find our way to the top. Great views of Lassen Peak, Mount Shasta, and the rest of the park.

90% snow to the top, but a fun, fine descent. Met Aaron and Ellen on the summit, who live just a few blocks from us in Oakland. Imagine that! County highpointed in Butte County yesterday: calm forest walk on the PCT.

Date Climbed: Feb 11, 2006


A clear day and a relatively easy ascent, although the last part of the South Slope was pretty icy since I started so early and crampons were needed for some of the very short 30-35 degree parts. 5 hours car-to-car.

My wife, myself and our 8 month old son made the trek to the top. We used this mountain as a test to see how we all would handle altitude, as we live in the Bay area, but were mainly worried about our 8 mo. old. Never had a problem with sickness on Brokeoff Mt or Lassen Peak!!

Arrived at the TH at 12:30 in the afternoon and although it was hot, I headed up the trail and found it to be a great hike with superb views.

My wife and I camped at the nearby walk in campground and did Butte County's highpoint the next dau and my wife and I enjoyed meeting three PCT thru-hikers as they made their way northward.
Freight train, Good-to-go and Bloody Knuckles (their trail names) Great hikers, I really admire their determination and fortitude.

Huge amounts of snow made route finding very difficult but this is the primo climb/hike in Lassen.
