Gorgeous hike up to the summit after staying at Lena Lake. Made it past the hairy exposed part, but left my wife behind (bad move). The alpine lakes and scenery was very awesome.

I had originally signed the log years ago, but I guess that climber's log got deleted with the original page. Too bad. Still good memories of the hike though, 7 years later.

olympicmarmotfun and challenging first climb  Sucess!

I was camped at upper lena for a week doing revege work for the park service. On our off day another worker and I went up the south east notch route. It wasnt as steep as it looked from milk lake, but still plenty steep for my first climb. We had a little trouble figuring out how to proceed past the notch, which requires a quick scramble up and over a section of rock you cant see past until your on top of it. From there, its a piece of cake up to the summit, which commands a very impressive view down to the lake. On the way back, descending back down to the snowfield from the notch was slow going. Just sketchy enough to make it a good challenge. Lots of loose rock.

After climbing Lena East Peak and Lena, we tried the standard gully route described in the OMCG. Made it to about 5400 feet before we decided it was too loose for our tastes. I believe we were almost past the crux but at the time, it wasn't worth it.

It's a bummer the original page was deleted. I summited this in 2009, but had no views due to fog. I took the North Ridge up, which is a fun scramble, with one difficult move of about 15 feet consisting of skirting across a narrow ledge while hugging a cliff face. Great scramble from Upper Lena Lake. I did Mount Lena the next morning before heading back.
