I had a good time, but the route up the South Spur is jsut long slog. Would like to go back to do the Mazama or Adams route next time.

8-14-2006 and 7-2005, both car to car. The glissade and the view are the only redeeming quality of this long slog. I'd like to do a different route next time.

Very enjoyable climb, and my first volcano as well! The glissade route was absolutely incredible, as we were able to drop some 2000'+ in a very short amount of time!

Returned on the 24th of August to encounter much worse snow conditions, yet the ascent (as well as portions of the glissade) were still very enjoyable.

Camped at 8000'. The wind was blowing all night until it finally subsided at 5am. I got zero hours of sleep but the day went pretty well. I was actually glad I took a later start (6:15am) as some early summitters couldn't glissade down as it was still too icy.

Anyway, fun day, great mountain and awesome views of Rainier! TR can be found in the link below:

We went in late October and tried to do it all in one day. It was fun, but I did end up getting altitude sickness so I only made it to the false summit. My partners continued on without me. I'll be back though.

Made another trip up in August of 2009, camped at Lunch Counter, and made it to the top. A great mountain to spend time on. Beautiful blue skies and a great glissade down!

Climbed with Brian F. and Machelle car-to-car. Climb went well though too icy to glissade coming down....as Machelle discovered :)

Date Climbed: Jul 15, 2007


Summitted via Mazama Ridge. 30-40 mph wind gusts all night... woke up to more wind and blowing sand... sky cleared on the way up... clear skies, beautiful views... hit the summit by 9am. It turned out to be a wonderful day.

Cloudy morning, sprinkles, wind, and sun by late morning. The snow was soft in early morning, and the water was flowing faster at Lunch Counter as the day went on. Watch for falling rocks (saw a couple on the snowfield above Lunch Counter), but the snow was soft enough that it stopped them from going very far. Mountainlion and I slept a couple hours then headed up at 4:00am reaching the summit at 1:00pm. The glissade chutes are at their best as they go from Pikers Peak to the Lunch Counter. It's a great summer hike for those who don't like technical climbing such as route finding around crevasses or steep slopes or seracs that may fall.

Date Climbed: Jul 2, 2007


Fun route, an excellent beginner glacier climb. My partner wasn't feelin' it, so I went solo from the top of the glacier. 4:10 to the summit from Sunrise Camp. Cut off the train coming up the South Side and was the first one to the summit that day by an hour.

Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2007


I made bivouac at Cold Springs last night after getting lost in the dark on the forest roads. Woke three hours later and got going at 3:45 am this morning. I was on the windy summit by 11 am and back to my motorcycle by 3:15 pm for the 250 mile drive home. Now I'm tired.

This was my first Cascade Mountain. The weather on the approach was bad, snow, rain and wind. The top of the mountain was getting hammered. Saturday dawned clear and no wind, the day stayed great but the wind did pick up in the afternoon. I got a little sunburned but it was a great day!

We went up the South Spur during mid-week. Great weather on the approach, but incoming weather from the coast caused us to turn around around 10,600. It was raining at the high-camp (8100ft). Lots of folks up on the south side ... probably around 30. Great views of Helens & Hood.

My brother and I climbed the South Spur over two days. The access road was snowed in so we had to hike and additional 6 miles just to reach the trailhead. This was a slog of a trip. 24 miles and 8000 vertical feet through some seriously deep snow. We had a blast though. We had clear skies on the summit and could easily see Rainier, Hood and Mt. Saint Helens. Glissading down Pikers Peak was a blast but we got rained on the last 6 miles out.

Date Climbed: Jun 10, 2007


The road is clear up to the trailhead, but the trail gets snowy a mile from the trailhead. Weather report was dodgy, but we took a shot anyway. At about 7000', whiteout conditions took over, and our tracks began to fill with snow. We headed down, not having a night to wait out the storm. This is a grudge peak now.

LeviSO Close...
Date Climbed: Jun 3, 2007


We came so very close to the summit but just didn't get it. The road isn't clear to Cold Springs yet but its getting close, so we had to walk the extra few miles. Made camp at about 7000'. We watched a couple thunder storms boil up. Left camp next day at 5am. Finally at 11:30am we got to the false summit. The weather the whole day was nice and right when we got to the false summit the clouds came in. Seeing that it was starting to get to white out conditions we turned around. About 10min later after getting pretty far down the weather became perfect again. Being to tired to walk up we continued down. Missed the tent and had to look for it and then packed up and headed for Morrison Creek. 4:45pm we reached the car after the grueling hike out. We came so close but we will have to return one day to get this one.
