Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2008

Dundeel

Snow from just above the TH. Lots of melted out tent sites and running water available at Lunch Counter. Visibility was limited on the 6th due to California forest fire smoke.
Made a 5am start from Lunch Counter with crampons. Smoke had blown away and the view was excellent once the sun came up. Reached the summit shortly after 10. Wind at Pikers Peak was 25 to 30 and on the summit, 40+. It took us 3 hours to climb to Pikers Peak and 20 minutes to glissade back down.
Finished off with a great meal at KJ's Bear Creek Cafe in Trout Lake.

Wanted to climb the Mazama Glacier, but the road to the trailhead was still blocked by snow 3.5 miles out from the trailhead. Adding that additional 7 miles round trip to the route was simply out of our league for a single push on the route. The forest service was simply waiting for the snow to melt with no plans to clear the road, so we went up there and in 4 hours cleared the snow and trees from the road, it was awesome! It turned out a youth survival group had just had a team member blow out his knee and was immobile at the trailhead. We arrived in our cars, and they were dumbfounded and emotional to realize they weren't going to have to carry him all the way down the mountain road. Great experience.

We didn't have the strength to do a single push for the Mazama Glacier route any longer, so we did a single push on the South Spur. The terrain is simple and easy, and not quite the Cascade experience we wanted, but hey the mountain was beautiful and we summited, plus the glissades are fun. We'll be back again someday.

Great work out, but awfully long for one day. We passed many people who had opted to not wear crampons. I would recommend them. Fantastic glissade off the top.

Good climb, good times. Forgot gloves. The glissade chute was about 7 feet deep off of the false summit.

Went with a couple friends. Progress was so fast we just dumped the camping gear halfway up and tagged the summit. Wish I knew how to ski back then.

Pleasant climb. Found a poor tiny mouse on the summit. He must have hitchhiked up in a pack.

This was an awesome hike. When we hiked there was still lots of snow, and we were constantly taking our cramp-ons off and on again. That really slowed us down. But the view from the top is worth it ten fold.

This is my tallest cascade summit. It got warm, there were tons of people, one of whom dislodged a boulder which shot down the fall line near Pikers Peak. Summit view was awesome, and Im glad the drive to Cold Springs was done in a rental car. It was a creek bed more than a road. As it should be.

On July 3rd my wife and I decided to spend the 4th climbing Adams. We had climbed the peak a few years earlier, but had camped at the Lunch Counter on the first day. This time we did the climb in one day. Great climb!

Second summit attempt, the first ending at the false
summit a week prior. The snowpack was incredible. Camped
IN the snow at Timberline; Devils Half Acre was a breeze.
Reached the Lunch Counter at lunchtime. The snow was
stable and easy to walk on. Mt. St. Helen's lava dome
was still steaming from the May 1980 eruption. Awesome!

Two day climb up the south spur. Camped east of the lunch counter. More scree and boulders made for slower going than I expected, guess thats what I get for going in Sept. Summited around 0930, strong winds, probably 40-50 mph. Good times.
