Mike D'Great Success  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 2, 2014
Drew & I left the crowded dirt road mid-afternoon, soft snow got us to lunch counter well before sunset for our rendezvous with three other friends. No rush in the morning, easy summit and awesome ski descent.

Moderate traffic, not terrible...except for that dude buzzing the climbers all morn from his flying fan paraglider thingy, so annoying, what was his deal?!

Hiked up to just below Lunch Counter with John and grandson Tristin. Got early start and made the summit in fairly good time considering grandsons first peak over 12k and first snow climb.

Beautiful day with great views of MSH, Rainer, Hood and Jefferson

Climbed on a gorgeous weekend at the end of May (avoided the Cascade volcano pass!)

Hauled the snowboard to the top via the Suksdorf Ridge and Piker's Peak.

Sun came out, great corn snow, fun all the way down!

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!

Date Climbed: Aug 9, 2013
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.
