Tried to Hogsback route, got up to the pearly gates but they wernt looking very nice so we looked at the old chute variation. However the sun hit the ice above and it was way too warm so we bailed.

Climbed as far as the hogsback, but couldn't summit since it had shifted west away from the Pearly Gates (see photo). Still a great climg with my son Patrick, in the bright moonlight and early morning sunshine. Great views. A fun day.

Climbed solo from Hogsback to Old Chute then to summit. Great temps, no wind, great early snow but got soft in late AM. Moderate traffic. An enjoyable, moderate, straightforward route. No ropes needed if you don't mind some slight exposure on the ridge (very moderate).

Camped out above Palmer the night before and awoke to a perfect day! Took the skis and board to just below crater rock, then enjoyed a nice boot pack up the hogsback (headed left off the hogsback) The climb was done with two of my best friends (The Vandervorts) and countless others, great mountain.

The weather was perfect and the fumaroles were potent. The trek seemed much longer than anticipated. Once the sun came out, the snow softened up rather quickly. Beautiful scenery and many good conversations with other travelers. Then went back solo on June 15, to give my dad a special "Fathers Day" message from the summit.

Our team of 3 were the first to summit this spring. Left Timberline at 2:30 by full moon. It was a chore to break trail over the hogsback and the gates were icy; it took some to navigate both up and down, in the shade and cold wind. Up top, only a light wind and lots of sun.

First attempt failed due to pouring rain. Second attempt the following day started in a snowstorm, but we climbed above the clouds and it was a beautiful day. Pearly Gates area was covered in ice and we were lucky to have an ice climber with us. Used rope and ice screws. Had the summit to ourselves and only saw a few other people all day.

We took the standard route up from Timberline Lodge. We camped up above the lifts to avoid the congestion the next morning but still stood in line to get to the summit. A popular but spectacular peak.

Old Crater Variation
I broke my own rule. We arrived later than expected this year and didn't summit until 10. Many groups left before us due to ice fall which improved as the Sun warmed the upper slopes . Not what I expected. We enjoyed an empty summit on a perfect day.

Early season conditions. The weather was perfect! Chunky loose ice from Palmer to Crater Rock turning to the soft stuff all the way to nearly the summit. The hogsback is way left again this year. The Pearly Gate chutes look technical and slow, so I think the Old Chute Variation will be the standard south side route for a while. We didn't use a rope, but I could have used a second tool.

Not much to see with the bad weather. A couple of peeks of the sun offered a nice view here and there though.

South side climb on a rare 2 day clearing in weather. The hogsback transition mixed things up. Summited around 12 PM and snowboarded back down the south side all the way into government camp in one continueous ride (about 8000 ft elevation change).

Nice hike. Maybe too late in the summer. Pearly Gates was a mess, so we went up the snow slope to the left.
