|I have done this hike in every season and it is a fun warm up hike for bigger peaks as well as a great workout every time. I usually do this hike a few times per year and winter is my favorite month. I lost count after 10 summits, but I think I have been on top about 20 times. The most exciting trip was a winter ascent in 2003 when my friend Craig and I had the summit to ourselves.(See trip report)|
- 1/17/2006- With Jun32. There was a lot of snow to deal with from the saddle to the summit.
- 4/16/2007- With Matt Van Horn.
- 6/17/08 With Matthew Van Horn, started at 9:00 PM and climbed the whole peak in the dark. On top just after 11:00 and this had to be one of the best hikes of Olympus for me. I had a great time. Home and in bed by 2:00 AM.
- 6/23/2009 2nd Annual Olympus night hike with Matt V. and Greg. We started at 9:00 PM and reached the summit just after 11:00 PM. Back to the car by 1:30 AM. The weather was almost perfect and we had a great time.
-12/18/2009 Had snow most of the way, but it wasn't bad until after the saddle, where we encountered some ice, and a lot of snow. Had to take care in a few spots, but nothing serious. Down and into work by noon.
- 3/4/2010- Before work with Zeejay. There was some ice in places, and I had a couple of bad falls. It snowed on top, but once we were back on the saddle it cleared up and was nice the rest of the way. Fun day.
-4/2/2011- With Matt V. Cold and windy on top, but a fun day.
-12/7/2011- With Matt Van Horn. Saw 6 mountain goats near the summit. Finished and then bagged Grandeur (up West ridge, down Church Fork/Pipeline) and then did Mt Wire. 11K elevation and 23 miles for the day. Triple up!

|Somtimes steep, sometimes easy. The last scramble at the end was very fun. You won't like the scrmable at the end if you're afraid of heights!|

|I think I'm up to 8 ascents from Tolcat/Mt. Olympus trail. Steep, enjoyable hike. Would like to climb from the north face, or complete Wildcat Ridge one of these days. Fine views of city, best around Memorial Day weekend. Later in summer, the lower trail can be very hot.|

|Great hike. Even better the 2nd time. I had plenty of water and got to the top in 3.5 hours. I wanted to climb to the south summit, but the chute on the south summmit was filled with snow and I didn't have an ice axe, so I had to come down the same way I did the last time.|

|Very long and steep scramble. Makes the trail look like a piece of cake. Brought way too little water though. I've never gotten so dehydrated before or since.|

|Tops out on north summit. Remember trail descends from south summit. Climb in the spring so you can take advantage of snow in the couloirs.|

|Nice, strenuous hike with Jesse Lomask. Half of the adventure was getting to and from the trailhead! I didn't keep split times or anything, as I have no watch, but we were up and down in 3 hours.|
