careyjdAugust ascent - Old Chute  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 23, 2014
August ascent, great weather, a little warm. Started at timberline around 2:30. Summit at 8:30. Route was in, snow pack was frosted with ice and gave good crampon purchase. Climbed old chute route, but we actually ascended the chute the the right of the old chute. It was rotten crumbly rock. Only had rockfall once, was small pebbles. No snow/ice in this chute, hogsback was nice, schrund was open 10 foot high and 30-40 ft wide. descended same rotten chute. Had lots of naysayers about climbing at this time, glad we ignored them!

Another day hike, started at 3 am. Weather was cooler than my CS attempt. Snow really nice and firm. Bergschrund and Hogback placement sent me up the chutes to the left. Really enjoyable. Took the lower lift back to Timberline. Only thing that was not great was listening to the snow graders all morning, felt like I was walking through a construction site.

Day hike during a heat wave - started at the road closure below 4k'. Started hiking at 1 am. Didn't make it to the steep stuff until after 9 am. Decided to turn around around 11:30. Snow was getting really sloppy and I was running on too little sleep and too few calories.

Left the Timberline Lodge parking at 12:15 am, went up via the Old Chute, with a nice traverse in fresh snow along the ridge. Were back at the car at noon.

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
