WildBlueNo snow  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 1, 2012


Climbed via the South Spur, spent a windy night at Lunch Counter. Should have climbed a month earlier, as so much snow had melted that it was a pain trying to walk up loose gravel most of the way.

Two successful climbs, both on the South Spur route a week apart in July 1984. Fun, fun, fun--although bad weather was coming in, luckily we set out some wands marking the route. Turned out to be vital for the descent on the second trip

Date Climbed: Aug 14, 2012


Climbed it two days ago. Enjoyed this one. Pikers peak without crampons proved to be a enjoyable challenge as I constantly used my ice axe to make steps. Great Glissading! We went down the wrong ridge descending but we were able to correct our path rather quickly.

Date Climbed: Aug 5, 2012


I took three friends up this weekend that had never climbed. It was nearly a perfect climbing day and everyone summitted. We left the parking lot at 3:30 am. and the near full moon lit the trail and the mountain was clearly visible in the moonlight. We had high high winds up to Lunch Counter. It then calmed down and was a beautiful climb. We stayed on top for over two hours because it was so nice. It felt like about 50 degrees. The glissading was great.

Long day, but we made good progress up and summitted in about 4.5 hours from the TH. Wish I could tell you what the last 2,000' of the climb looked like, but it was pea-soup cloudy up there. Glissade lived up to the hype

Navigated the somewhat confusing Adams Glacier with 2 great partners - G-Love and Lutty. Great route, but right side was totally out and instead we zig-zagged our way up the middle of the glacier. Had the peak to ourselves and weather was again perfect!

Date Climbed: Jul 14, 2012
One-day ascent on the South Spur. Started from Cold Springs about 1:30. Lunch Counter to Piker's was icy early in the morning. We waited on top for an hour or two for the sun to come out and make conditions passable for the excellent glissade.

Date Climbed: Jun 6, 2012
Perfect conditions on the South Spur. A friend and I camped around 6500'. Lots of post holing, especially past Piker's Peak. Stunning views of Hood and Rainier from the summit. Glissaded most of Piker's.

MichaelWW'Winter Route' in August!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2011


Success on our second attempt! Climbed with James Robinson and this was a five star trip all around.

Because of the heavy snowfall in the cascades in 2010/2011 (200%+ of normal), everyone we talked to on the south side was using the 'winter route', which runs to the east of the Crescent Glacier instead of just to the west.

I put my clinometer on multiple spots going up to Pikers peak and it consistently read in the low 40s for incline angle, not 30 degrees as stated.

The summit was amazing, but the glissade down from Pikers was easily the most fun part! So fast too!
