POWERJLRoute Climbed: Main Date Climbed: April, 1988  Sucess!
A fun day trip, been there many times. The date I posted this for was not the first, nor the last, but the most memorable. The guy I was with. The whole hike, his hair did'nt move, glued in place. Incredible! And slogging along on Snowshoes no less!

It's fun to look back through the paper log on top and see my other entries. The trail is busy this time of the year.

Even for a summer hike, there was a bit of snow. No worries there. I do with I brought my climbing/rappeling equipment, though. The summit view was fantastic and the weather was flawless!

What better a way to spend independence day? Clear weather this time. Easy grade and spectacular view. I can see why this one is popular.

Very clowdy after we reached half way up. No view on top but a few inches of snow on the ground. Well developed trail. I'm coming back again for the view.

Great, last-minute hike while on a business trip. Me and two buddies hiked it quick, mainly in the clouds, with lots of people on the snow-free trail. There was a patch or two on the other side of the mountain that could be seen from the lookout. The mud wasn't bad, offered more cushioning then anything.

Smoking a cigar at the top was... very nice.

Beautiful Day! Awesome hike, can't really call it a climb. 80 degrees, almost totally clear on an easy but high prominence peak. Great day to be outside, got to spend it with my Dad which made it even better. Never tire of this one.

Climbed the trail on a frozen afternoon, lots of snow all the way.

It was a very couldy day so the view was limited. I will go back again to get the views. I found this to be a very easy climb, with the trail well marked and groomed.

Grew up in the shadow of Pilchuck and got to know it like the back of my hand. To my "trail hiker" friends, you may want to go to the "trip report" section for a couple alternate routes to spread your off-trail wings.

Hiked to the top with my 7-year-old sister and about a million other people! Trail was solid ice, very slippery. Saw some people take some hard falls (including myself!). Carried my sister in my backpack on the way down :P

Trailhead was only thirty miles from my home the last two summers. Crowded place, but enjoyable.

With no other viable options on a rainy day in May my climbing partner and i climbed this via the regular trail and a bunch of snow traversing. Vowed we'd come back later to do the "other side". We did in September and we were pleasantly surprised at the aesthetics and rigorousness of this route. Only another couple of folks on the route but we figured the ratio of people on the trail route to us to be at least 50 to 1.

Thick fog on the way up, clearing to beautiful sunshine.

We hit the trail by headlamp at around 9pm and summited around 12pm or so. Turned off the lamps as soon as we broke the main tree line to hike by the moon light.

I was able to get by with four-point instep crampons for the blue ice that occured in spades on the main trail. My two buddies had full crampons. We bivied just below the lookout station in one of the snowy clearings.

Up at sun rise to a beautiful clear sky yeilding unobstructed views on all four points of the compass. Plus, our buddy in his one-prop airplane buzzed us as we were packing up!

Quick decent, we were back in town in time for church.

Great day hike, but I think it would be good to go on a sunny day.

This is a fun hike during the summer. Moderate elevation gain and short distance. In early spring, I like to come here with my snowboard for some boarding fun. Also a good place to practice your glacier travel skills in spring (though there's no glacier, one can still find many areas to practice self arrest, crevasse rescue, team rope travel, snow rappel, etc by going off the main trail) while also going for the summit.

This was a fun climb. Cool little lookout cabin at the top. Couldn't see anything but snow though.
