Made a one day ascent from Killen Creek. We are part of the Sierra Mountaineering Club from CA. We left at 2 am and were at the base of the route around 7am. First bit through crevasses and moderate snow was pretty simple. Rock was probably 4th class at the hardest, but loose. Exposure minimal. Last bit was steeper snow then about 2 pitches of alpine ice around 45 degrees. We gained the North Ridge around 11,700 and were standing on the summit at 12:30. We descended the North Ridge which was unpleasant, very loose and long, but still the best way off the mountain to the north. Fun route.

Probably wasn't worth the extra 25 pounds of ski gear, but still an enjoyable climb with perfect weather. We camped at around 8000', just after the trail switched to snow. We left our skis at Pikers Peak before heading the summit. The top was surprisingly warm; I was wearing shorts at one point and didn't get cold. Glissaded/hiked down to about 10800' before putting on skis. Not perfect conditions, but still an awesome run. Hoping for more snow next year!

Drove down from Seattle Friday night and left cold springs campground at 4:00 am. Reached the summit around 11am and took advantage of the fantastic glissading all the way down. 11.5 hours round trip - a long day but very fun!

This was my first attempt climbing a mountain and we decided to do it in one day. I didnĀ“t bring enough food or clothing for that matter and we did start towards the summit until around noon. Massive cloud system and electrical storm ended up turning us back less than 200 feet below the summit in the middle of the night. Definitely learned a lesson and will never do anything this stupid again.

After picking up my permit that morning I didn't start hiking until 9:30, reached the summit at 3 pm, and back at parking at 6. Was a fun glissade in spots! South Spur route.

Camped at Cold Springs Campground and started up Trail #183. Nearly got nailed by a huge rock that came tumbling down the steep slope but got out of the way in time. Made it up to the summit and back to the campground in one long day. Strenuous going up but definitely worth the view from the top. Glissade down was quite fast and fun!

3 day trip, 2 nights at High Camp. Mostly steep snow. Crevasse navigation had me climbing about 25' of water ice on the far right at about 10.5k'. Had gear but didn't use it there. Descended N Cleaver, found a rap station to get to a decent snow field around 10k'. Mosquitos were bloody awful below 7k'.

Great weather both days we were on the mountain. We camped around 8900 ft with relative privacy. Tons of places to choose from, where people have worked hard to create rock shelters (much appreciated).Long snow slog up with varying snow conditions in the morning hours. Only wished we would have brought crampons instead of microspikes during that part. Other than that, a simple snow hike up. Great views from the top, and the best glissading ever - over 2500ft of it on the way down!
