cbuelowRoute Climbed: South Face Date Climbed: July 27, 2002  Sucess!


Crowded hike up an easy mountain. Smoke from the Oregon fires obscured the views on an otherwise clear day. The views improved only at the top, and even there, only Shasta and the Trinity Alps could be clearly seen. The air quality was lousy and I got a little tired of standing next to the trail to allow hordes of hikers to go by in the opposite direction. At lease I can say that I've bagged this one, but I certainly don't see any reason to do it again, except maybe as a warmup to my next Shasta climb.

A beautiful, not so challenging peak.

My first mountain at altitude above 6,288 feet. Was a nice experience....fortunately, I spent several days between 6,000 to 8,000 feet prior, so I only had a very slight headache due to being dehydrated. Made it up in 1 1/2 hours due to my girlfriend's son moving like he had cement shoes (he stopped 3/4's of the way to the top....apparently not all kids have more energy than adults). He hung behind while I sprinted to the top, flying past others (usually, it's the other way around). Lots of people on the mountain, and about 20+ people around the true summit. I guess I missed the "trail" to the summit, and went around to the right and got to climb a little rock which was fun. Apparently others on the summit thought this was a hard route for some reason. All in all, a nice easy hike up....very scenic.

The first one to the summit this day. One other guy headed up the summit pinacle as I was coming off it. Did John's class three variation for the summit. That part was fun. Had a picture taken by a family that had arrived on the small plateau. The air was so dirty that only the very top of Shasta was visible. What a disappointment. Passed hordes of people on their way up as I was headed down.

This is a great warm up climb for climbers travelling to Shasta from the south. A wonderful view of the Lassen volcanic park is available at the top. Can be windy but no significant hazards await those with proper footwear.

Another warmup for another climb of Shasta. Seems to be a regular pattern I'm falling into for May climbing... :)

Very nice climb and ski descent. I got to see parts of this mountain I didn't know existed. The best part of the ascent was going through the left-hand chute of the South Face route. Fun ski descent as well and I hope to head up to ski this one many times! See my SP Trip Report for details.

Took us 1 hour and 23 minutes from car to car. The weather was beautiful, and we had the summit completely to ourselves.

dshoeRoute Climbed: Lassen Peak Trail Date Climbed: See Below.....  Sucess!


Have done Lassen Peak three times, with all three trips via the standard Lassen Peak Trail. The first trip was in August 1999, the second trip was in September 1999, and the third trip was in June 2001. This hike/climb was really enjoyable every time I did it. The trail is not very strenuous, if you allow the time necessary to do it comfortably. Great views from the top of Lassen NP, the upper Sacramento Valley, and of Mt Shasta to the northwest!

This was the last mountain we did on a 2-week journey through the volcanoes of The Cascades. This was my first big climbing trip away from my home mountains of the Sierra. We weren't very successful on that trip, but boy! did we have a good time. In fact, this was the trip that got me hooked on traveling & climbing mountains!

This was an extremely fun acclimatization warmup for Mt. Shasta the following day. The road had just opened the day before and there were only a few cars in the parking lot all day. I had much fun scrambling about on the rocks and snowshoeing around the crater rim.

By this time of year, the road was plowed and there was very little snow remaining on the trail. The snow had already started breaking up on the Northeast Face, however, there were still some decent runs on the South Face. This was my first time up this volcano and unfortunately I didn't bring my skis. On the way up I ran into a guy hiking up in flip-flop sandals, t-shirt, and shorts, with his snowboard and boots. I got to see him ride down the South Face using his sandals as "gloves" as well as a skier who was stuck out on the slope. Since this guy wasn't moving, a ranger had to go up to meet him - not sure what happened there. It was a gorgeous day and I highly recommend going when there's still snow.
