After a 3 day backpacking trip we couldn't resist the quick hike to the summit. About 90 minutes up, 45 minutes down. Nice view of the smoke from the fire burning inside the park. There were enough people on the summit to have a small town meeting....

Much easier than i was expecting. First on the trail at 6am. The summit was beautiful. Great views of Shasta and Lake Almanor. Couldn't believe all the people headed up on our way down. Lots of skiers! Snow was much softer/safer on way down. To the dude in the "UtilaKilt"...you're a stud pal.

warm-up for Agassiz - 90 minutes to summit - lots of snow on the way up and we scrambled a little at the top. I seriously recommend you start no later than 6:30 AM - after that it turns into a grade-school field trip.

Easy effort climb; brutal winds and cold. Felt like March on Sonora Pass all over again. I wished I'd brought my gortex gloves to fend off frostbite. CA COHP #20. Trail and summit were entirely empty -- 1/2 from the early hour (done by 8:30am) and half from the dense overcast cloud system that stretched all the way to Shasta and beyond.

Nice hike, with good views of Shasta 100 miles to the north poking out through the top of the clouds...

Shasta on Saturday, Eddy on Sunday, Lassen on Monday. Three great places to view everywhere from. However, as Bob mentioned, it is not a lonely trail. Tons of people showed up and overpopulated the summit. If they'd put a McD's up there, they'd make some big bucks. Still, nice to get the highpoint of Shasta county with fellow summitposter Bob Bolton.

Dean Molen and I did Lassen as the last summit of our Northern California trip, which also included Shasta and Eddy. Nice day, and the hordes were amazing, although expected.

All I can say is that I've never seen that many people on a trail. It was not suprising how many idiots were up there - hiking off trail, throwing rocks at the chipmunks, just dropping trash where-ever. Its sad because it is a nice little hike.

Decided to hit Lassen as a warmup for Shasta. Started up the trail then put on the crampons and headed up the bowl on the SE side. Snow was perfect for crampons and for glissading. Had a fantastic glissade down the bowl then cut around to the South side for one more glissade almost to the parking lot. What a blast! There were quite a few boarders and skiers having fun as well. Weather was awesome.

Hiked the majority of the way up the trail. Lots of new June snow on the peak from the last few days (see entry below). Actually used crampons for the first mile or so, made things much easier. Very windy and cold on the summit ridge. Climbed the last little 3rd class route to the summit, fun with lots of snow and ice on the rocks. Got in some fun glissading on the south face. Nice park, no crowds, only a few others on the peak all day.

Breath-taking, challenging trip, ascended the North Side, descended the South Side, in a blizzard, (not recommended)

A warm up climb for Mt Shasta's Casaval Ridge the next day. There were 10 foot walls of snow at the parking lot. Lake Helen was still with thin ice. I left the parking lot at 11:00am. En route (at about 9700'), I climbed the prominent rocks to the climber's right of the south side short couloir. From Bob Burd's website, he mentions this to be class 3 rock, 200 ft high. I must have gotten off route because the route I took (about 300 yards to the right of the couloir) felt like class 4, even a few low 5th moves. It took me some time to climb this section. Once out of it, the summit was not far. I reached the summit at 12:30pm. It was very windy up there and I didn't stay long. I got back at the parking lot at 1:40pm. Changed the sweaty clothes for dry clothes and drove out there at 2:00pm, heading to Mt. Shasta.

Start early till the snow is still firm! Sleeping at Lake Helen was great - views were awesome. And glissade down Lassen was fun...

Failed to reach the top due to unfair amount so of snow and high probability of avalanche.
