This was my first climb ever. It was a perfect day. I hiked up to the lift with someone, then I went on by myself. Great first experience, so now I am looking for the another one. I am from and living in Florida, so if anyone has any suggestions I would love some. Thanks!

Hiked this on a perfect sunny day. Solo hike. No equipment (I got a lot of hate mail for it - see my trip report). Easy hike except the Old Chute which was all ice.

The route was pretty out of shape and soft, but was a great climb. Took a left at crater rock across fumaroles and up Old Chute. Blessed to see the sunrise from the crater rim.

We picked an odd time of year but still had a fun climb. Camped overnight and ascended the Hogsback dodging some rockfall along the way. There were butterflies on the summit! It was a lovely sunny day.

We started out around 12:30am on a crystal clear night, as we hiked into the cool darkness. We did NOT take the snocat up to the top of the lifts either. The trail got steeper the higher you climbed. The weather was great, having no winds at all, and 28 deg temps on the summit. The Old Chute was veeeeery steep, but had boot prints clearly on the right side. We roped up, and had no problems. What a great accomplishment for my lady and I, pheww! State High Point #34......

punchline

Originally intended to spend the night at Illumination Saddle but ended up dumping gear and decided to summit on Monday as there was a storm predicted early Tuesday which was when we had planned to climb. Went up the lower West Crater Rim and then joined up with the route up the Old Chute. Sunny but windy day on the summit. Down the traditional South Side route and then traversed back over to our camp at the saddle. Stayed overnight and the slog down the next morning after a couple hours of rain (and warm temperatures) was not a lot of fun. HP #17

Started just before midnight. The snow at Timberline was very soft as the temperature was very mild. Luckily, snow conditions higher up were perfect and there was zero wind. Got to the top to witness a gorgeous sunrise!

The Old Chute route was is good condition as there are solid boot steps to follow up. The Bergschrund was about 30 feet wide which was impressive. Super fun trip.

Normal route from timberline lodge. Started at 3 pm and summited at 8 pm, which was ok. Bergschrund is wide open so we did the old chute route. Which is in good condition. No rock fall, just some ice fall from other climbers. Nothing serious though.

Summited just as the sun was rising. Beautiful. Took the Old Chute, as the bergschrund was already open 5 or 6 feet. Advise to others would be to ski down from top of lift - slog down was the only downfall of an awesome day. #16 HP.

Went on my first Mazama's climb. Left the lodge at 11:30 PM. Turned around at 4:30 due to the clouds moving in and lack a viability. We be attempting again soon.

I climbed with two friends via the Old Chute. It took us a little over 6 hours to reach the summit as we spent lots of time waiting in line on and above the Hogsback. With no moonlight, we couldn't see much going up, and clouds limited the views from the summit. The views coming down were incredible though with the clouds clearing as we descended. We had roped up starting at the Hogsback on the ascent, but decided to solo coming down. Descending the icy chute was the only sketchy part. We removed our crampons just below Crater Rock and had some fun glissades down to about 8500' dragging our axes to control speed. It was a fine day on an awe inspiring mountain. HP46

A climb with my friend Brandon, who had always wanted to climb this mountain since his days growing up in Oregon. Some dude had spent the night on the summit. Slightly hazy up top, but warm and sunny on the descent.

Fun day climb with beautiful weather. The gates at the top and the views of the other volcanoes was awesome. Sadly I lost all my pictures when my computer crashed a month after I climbed it. Don't remember the exact date, just that it was spring 2004 before I finished my first year of college.

Inverted temps led to horrible climbing conditions with rock and ice fall. Watched a guy slide/rag doll about 500 feet down the old chute. Turned around after that.
