Did this trip with the Seattle Mountaineers on the hottest day of the year. The rock scrambling was fun!

Josh and I did this one as a two day trip. Rock climbing isn't my thing, so the exposure of this scramble tested my limits, but the views from the summit might be the most spectacular that I have yet seen. Check out the Trip Report.

This is a solid mountain to climb in the winter or spring. Was more of a workout than I expected it to be, and got some good glissading in on the way down.

Left Portland at 7:00am Friday, got to Barlow Pass parking lot at noon. Hiked up to Foggy Lake and spent the rest of the day scouting for a flat, dry spot for camp. Up early Saturday morning to shoot some sunrise pics then after breakfast scrambled Del Campo. Came back to camp for lunch then off to Gothic peak. Came back to camp for dinner and a few sunset pics. Bucked camp early Sunday morning and headed out. Big spaghetti feed at The Omega restaurant in Granite Falls (highly recommend). Back in Portland by early evening. The weather was cool & crisp at night and warm & sunny during the day. Gothic Basin is a really cool place to spend a few days exploring the surrounding peaks. I'll definitely be back to explore other routes. I love the rock slabs...It's like walking on sandpaper.

Charlie, Dick and I climbed Del Campo as part of the 1994 OSAT Car Camp on Mtn. Loop Highway. The basin in wonderfully photogenic, and the scramble entertaining once you get above the talus slope.

Awesome day, sunny and hot, great views. Didn't see a summit register on top anywhere. Summited early, climbed Gothic Peak as well. Gothic Basin is a really cool area!

The weather held out nicely with a few ( very few ) sun breaks on the way in. A little snow and ice on the summit block made for careful progress. Started to snow while on the summit and had a little blizzard condition on the way down. I had been wanting to do this one for some time and really enjoyed myself. Gothic Basin is very picturesque. I would have liked to have had the time to do Gothic Peak also.

What a great climb. Del Campo offers fantastic Cascadian views, yet still demands respect for the upper class 3 scramble to the summit. Excellent stable rock and holds assure a safe trip with patience. Several very likely difficult dtream crossing in the early season, but nothing serious during this low snow year.

It was an awesome hike. I went with a group of people; we decided that Del Campo would be a good training hike for Rainier. When we finally cleared the streams and broke into the sub alpine stuff we cut the trail short and headed straight up towards the peak. It was a good slog up 45 to 50 degree slopes in snow. We got to the base of the mountain and started our climb up to the top. It was great, there’s a good amount of exposure, but its not really dangerous. It was a lot of fun with all of the snow on most of the upper trail.

rpcRoute Climbed: Standard (class 3) Date Climbed: October 5, 2003  Sucess!


After topping out on North Early Winter Spire the previous day, my wife and I were looking for something more "aerobic" to do as a day climb. Del Campo came to mind with its respectable elevation gain and reasonable round trip distance. We paid a visit to Gothic Basin the previous year but due to a late start from TH did not make a summit attempt. This time we started earlier. Gothic Basin and Foggy Lake in particular are spectacular! Would've been a great place to overnight (though hauling the bivy gear up the steep trail from Barlow Pass would be painful). The summit scramble (class 3) looked steep enough that we decided not to "drag" our dog with us - we topped out in the notch and tied the dog there while we made the summit. The summit register is missing a writing instrument which we did not have with us to leave behind.

Wonderful group camping trip and scramble with the McDuff clan and brother Reese. Trail to basin damp, but fine. Beautiful camp and swims at Foggy lake on day 1. Scramble with kids and dogs on day 2. All managed 30m traverse across permanent snow field, but class 3 gully was too much for one climber and one dog. Generally solid rock and great views. Another attempt in late June, 2001, was much rougher -- featuring tough route finding and snow traverses in the mile leading up to the basin and pitching tent on rare snowfree ground in thunderstorm.

Beautiful late season (Columbus Day) scramble. Camped just below Barlow Pass. Trail to Foggy Lake muddy in spots. Compass, map and guidebook helped me determine which peak was Del Campo. 45 minutes up from Foggy Lake to summit. Ideal conditions. With binoculars could see all major peaks from Baker to Adams. Great way to end my climbing season.

scot'teryxRoute Climbed: Weden Creek Trail to climbers trail Date Climbed: 10/20/01


Hiked for 1 mile up the Monte Cristo road to the Weden Creek trailhead and followed that for 2 miles to Foggy Lake. Trail consitions were bad 1.5 miles up as there was ice all over the place and frozen waterfalls. Lots of bush belaying and such. Once we were at the basin, we had a hard time navigating as it was mixed snow and granite, and brush. Just explored a little bit and headed North and found a few frozen lakes, then finally found Foggy Lake which is at the base of Del Campo. Absolutely incredible scene as Del Campo looks huge! Headed around the right side of the lake as Beckey describes but lost the trail quite a few times and lost cairns as well. Lots of hard windblown ice and snow that ranout on steep slopes into the lake, so we used our crapmons for the traverse back as Del Campo really intimidated us. We wound up meeting a few solo folks and headed up towards Gothic Peak (6300') and ascended some steep snowfields of ice and windblown drifts that were 2-3 feet deep. Had lunch at our highpoint at around 6000'. Beautiful day until the clouds came in around 2-3 pm and we descended. A long and tiring walk out, especially the flat Montecristo road back to the trailhead. Mayber we will summit this puppy next spring
