Date Climbed: Apr 23, 2016


From Lichtenwasser Lake, followed the drainage up and cut NW directly to the summit. No views because of weather but still a fun climb.

EuphoniaFirst winter scramble  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 10, 2013


Don't remember the exact date. This was my first winter scramble in snowshoes. I had a tough time getting up the steepest slope in snowshoes and poles. had to get out the ice ax to pull myself up. The snow was so powdery that getting traction was tough. Another gorgeous day.

ThorsChosenMosquitoes!!!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 25, 2011


Decided to scramble up the mountain while taking a day hike up to the lake. The mosquitoes were relentless down there by the lake so bring a lot of bug spray if you go that late. No snow and a little brushy this time of year but it helped at times because the scrambling was steep at parts.

jacobsmithNew Beginning on Lichtenberg  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 1, 2010


The first climb of three solid years of mountaineering. Made the summit despite wallowing in snow drifts. One of the better peaks accessible from Smithbrook rd.

Snidely Whiplash

The greatest blueberry hike of my life. My socks were stained blue by all the berries that fell down in my boots while going cross-country.

Date Climbed: Aug 4, 2014


I returned with Heather Anderson for my second attempt. We hiked up McCausland first and then climbed both peaks on Lichtenberg.

My first attempt took place November 21, 2010. Our group of five, Greg Slayden, Eric Noel, Ken Jones, Edward Earl, and myself only made it to the lake before we agreed that we had run out of time for a summit bid. All the fresh powder slowed our progress considerably.

MoniNE Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 14, 2010


Our first ascent of the season - still lots of snow. The route up the NE flank from the switchback beyond the Smith Brook Trailhead to a saddle above Lichtenwasser and on to the summit is very nice. Views were great.

A very late spring - the Smithbrook Road was still closed by snow only about 1 mile from the highway. We slogged up the road and accessed the NE Ridge from the Smithbrook Trailhead.

Beautiful day on the mountain. Our route down from the lake was much better than our route up. Great views from the summit.

Cascade Scrambler

Snowshoed up Smithbrook road, and then aimed for directly for the saddle between Lichtenberg and McCausland. Ascended to the top of the ridge via an avalanche chute that had recently slid but was completely safe given the conditions. Amazing views for 360 degrees- 19 degrees and blue skies, what more can you ask for?

Cascade Scrambler

I hike up to Lake Valhalla annually, and every year I tell myself that I'll climb Lichtenberg Mountain. After giving the west face a try last year (and getting turned around by the sheer wall) I finally reached the summit. Good times!
