Date Climbed: Apr 5, 2007


Climbed with Ben from Timberline Mountain Guides as a part of the two day summit program...great time and a good introduction to bigger mountaineering. Unbelieveable weather...sunny with clear views of all the big Cascades volcanoes. Very enjoyable time and probably saw about four other people on the route the whole day.

Took a day to head down to Oregon and climb it during stunning conditions. Windy in the morning and evening, but calm while we were on top. Took the Old Chute variation.

Climbed from the Timberline Lodge in a "conga line" with very high winds. Still fun though.

highicepoison oak and lost  Sucess!
tried the sunshine rte twice. first time my bud got poison oak outbreak and we turned had to turn around 500ft short, then he got us lost in a white out. We couldn't agree which way was the right way and he was persistent so we went his way...1000 ft down the wrong way. so we climbed back up and went my way and got to camp. the 2nd try we did from the car and made it with no problems.

Infected Mushroom

Weather reports were a bit dubious with regards to the wind but I decided to make the long drive anyway and give it a shot. The weather and route conditions turned out to be quite proper. Climbed via the old chute with my brother. First time on hood for both of us. Only saw 5 other climbers all day, had the entire upper mtn to ourselves.

Definitely a fun route. We watched 'The Shining' at the lodge before our 1 am start. The pearly gates were completely dry and we went up the left chute. Wish I had my skis for the ride down.

Mr. Clam

I left the car at 1:00 AM knowing that bad weather was comeing in, I packed light to try and beat it, but it caught up with me right as I reached the hogsback. Zero visibility and screaming west winds sent me back cold and dissapointed, I reached the car just before 6:00 AM.

It was still a great experience, I was the only person on the mountain (or at least on the south side of the mountain), and the full moon made for good scenery.

The sun rising in the early morning provided an encredible shadow of the volcano on the horizen as we walked up the scree along the groomed slopes. The boot pack to the top was chill, no need to rope up. We missed our skis on the way down even though conditions were poor. But, it's always fun to glissade.

This was the first mountain of any type that I attempted to climb and that was probably a mistake. I was 15 and a sophomore in high school in the spring of 1976. The climb up was pretty uneventful until we reached the area around Crater Rock. I became spooked by the exposure there and was dreading what I'd find nearer the summit. At the base of the Hogsback, we took a break and prepared to rope up for the final push to the summit. The summit was obscured by clouds and I (and a few others in our group) used this as an excuse to stay there and wait while the rest of the group went on. The clouds cleared off about the time the group reached the summit and I immediately regretted my decision. 30 years later I am still kicking myself for blowing that opportunity.

surgentWonderful climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 24, 1997


My first glacier climb ever; I went with the Timberline Guide service knowing my novice experience level. Party of 3, we travelled fast and made great time. Surreal climbing in the middle of the night to the bergschrund, then some tricky stepping over that chasm. Summitted just after 6 a.m. in very windy, cold conditions. Careful climb down and back at the lodge just in time for a late breakfast. Wonderful mountain - an easy beginner's glacier peak but not one to be taken lightly, ever.
