BombchaserSouth Climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 25, 2009


Who ever said this was an easy climb is crazy. Not sure where the "Trail to the top" is. I started out at 9:30am Thursday and made camp at 11,400 feet. I climbed the last 800 feet on Friday and then descended back to my car. Total climbing time was about 12.50 hours. Past Lunch Counter it is about 3000 feet of steep loose scree and rock. Had a few rocks zip past me in the snow melt areas. The views on top are awesome. The glaciers are right in your face.

Drove from MT to trailhead for South Spur route. Hiking by 4 am, stopped to pump water, summit around 11:30, back to the car at 3, on Bainbridge aound 8. Long day without snow, but straightforward. Seems like a good mountain to ski.

Caught a beautiful weekend in Oct. My buddy and I had no difficulties but almost descended a steep, steep non returnable gully. A climber a week before us had done the same and it almost cost him is life

Packed into Lunch Counter on saturday then summited on sunday. The weather was good, a bit of a cold wind but my down jacket fixed that! Great views of Rainier and Hood.

Date Climbed: Aug 8, 2009


Climbed the South Spur as a day climb the day after a successful climb of Hogsback/Old Chute on Hood. 11 hours car-to-car including 1.5 hours on top in warm sunny conditions. Snow cover was thin, resulting in a lot of crummy rock up top and some breaks in the glissade going down.

Malibu3rd Cascade Peak Climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 5, 2009


We're not what you'd call regulars at this and this was only my third climb above the treeline, second for my climbing partner. We did it in one day as I had done Hood and St. Helens in the late 90s. From Cold Springs we started at 2:30 AM, arriving back there at 6:30 PM. It might require less time earlier in the season with more snow cover -- we had to pick our way through alot of very rocky and curvy trail sections. Since we thought elevation could cause problems for us, not camping up at a higher point to acclimate, we took it quite easy, stopping often and taking longer breaks than some might. Perhaps this gave our bodies time to adjust as the only ill-effect felt was heavy fatigue. It was an amazing hike for us -- this mountain is huge, the one-day hike long at 13 miles and more conditioning will precede our next climb. Planning for Hood in May of 2010.

I did this as a backpack with a camp at the lunch counter. Nice hike overall although I didn't get much sleep with my tent flapping in the wind.

Did this solo by the South Spur route as part of a PNW climbing trip that included Shasta and the Three Sisters. Got stormed off of Hood (can't win 'em all!).

CHADHEPSouth Side Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2009


I hiked up to the lunch counter on Friday July 17th and setup camp(about 5.5 hours). Got up at 5:30am and made the summit at 10:30am. Finally made it to my truck at 4pm. Total 16 hours. It was a really awesome time. The glissades were quite the reward coming down.

Date Climbed: Jul 19, 2009


My first ascent was via the North Side ... this time I took two inexperienced friends up the South Side. Pretty easy route to the summit ... but base camp on the North Side is so much more beautiful!

Date Climbed: Jul 19, 2009


Left from the lower camp (below Lunch Counter) at 5am in a group of five. Easy, steady climb. From Piker's I took the direct route to the top, while the others went to the more gradual incline on the loose rock to the right. It seemed to save about 15 minutes, due in part because I didn't stop to take off my crampoons. Quite beautiful up top with low wind. The old mine structure was partially exposed. Lots of people up there.

Ridgerunner755South Route with a hundred others  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2009


My buddy Dave and I climbed from Cold Springs. We started at 3:15 A.M. and were on top by about 8:15 or so. I was wearing Carhartts and used my ice fishing crampons from lunch counter up. Dave had some Yak extreme crampons, a lot like the ones you see old ladies wear for icy sidewalks. They both worked great. Neither of us had ice axes, but the ski poles did come in handy. Glissade chutes were very deep and a little icy in spots. Wearing garbage bags helped us keep our speed up. I did not bring a whistle like the woman at the ranger station advised, but we made it regardless and both lived to see another day and drink another beer. Awesome mountain by the way!

A fine day and a lovely challenging hike. Did it with one busted crampon. Full Snow cover. Solo. No sun glasses: Developed a nasty case of sunburned eyeballs (snowblind). Climbed it again in July 1981 with my Mom.

Went up he South Spur with my Dad, Matt Eells and Dan Biddle. Took up my snowboard and cached it at Pikers. Shreded down from there after the summit to the LC- Fun, too short. The glissading was fun a storm chased us off the mountain.

Vinnyski descent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 27, 2009


charged up with Oyvind (in his sneakers- wish I had mine- decent steps the whole way up- would have avoided my blister).
tried to slow down to let SW chutes soften but still firm when we were ready to descend so we started SE and then pieced together the snow tongues.
great day
