Bob BurdBrokeoff Mtn Trail  Sucess!

Bob Burd

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

surgentCrowds?  Sucess!


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.

orandallSouth Slope  Sucess!
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.

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.

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?

derbillyRoute Climbed: South ridge Date Climbed: March 8, 2003  Sucess!


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.

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.
