nicozoneLast Climbers of the Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 15, 2011


We were originally planning on camping along the trail so that a friend of ours could take his time and make the summit (this was his first attempt at an actual "mountain"), but he had to drop out at the first boulder field. We left him to prepare camp while we gambled at a chance to make the summit before it got dark. We made the summit at 4:30pm and saw the sun go down as we hiked back to camp. Amazing weekend trip!

The only right way to do this one is on firm snowpack. Hell of a view from the crater, though.

Date is a guess. Been kicking myself ever since for not taking the skis on this one.

TyCLarge Crowds  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 8, 2011


Weather was suppose to be over 90° but instead it sprinkled for a few minutes and was cloud for more of the day. Seems like the wild fires were making visibility down to one mile. Other than the huge crowds and the lack of long distance views of other mountain the day still turned out to be great.

Monitor Ridge is a pain, but it didn't get the best of me. Clear day... awesome views up and down the Cascade Range.

Date Climbed: Jan 12, 2011


Packed a snowboard up in intermittent white-out conditions. The day was quickly passing by with slow progress. Made it about 1500 ft from the rim before we turned around because of worsening weather. In the breaks in the snow it was a beautiful day.

Date Climbed: Jun 24, 2011
I've now been to the crater rim twice on this mountain but have yet to touch the summit due to conditions. Too bad becuase this year I felt so strong and good at the top.

Unfortunately, on the way back to Seattle, I got food poisening and spent the next two days unable to keep food down. :( Still a great trip though.

Date Climbed: Sep 16, 2009


A slow "leader" leads to a long day on the mountain....16 hours just hiking. Easily should have been the first people on top. Great day though to summit!

StephMitchamThe day that changed everything..  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2011


It was a beautiful day, I was excited to get up to the mountain. I had climbed St. Helens the year before, but was unable to summit due to weather conditions. So this year I hoped that the weather would cooperate,and it did, much to my delight. As we climbed the mountain to the point where we were able to stand amidst the clouds, my life began to change. Somewhere in that climb I found myself face to face with myself. It was just me and my breath and each step. My mind felt the clearest it ever has. There is something about climbing that brings you closer to who you are than anything else. I fell in love that day, absolute true love. I will be climbing all the remaining years of my life!

Date Climbed: Jun 9, 2011


Despite severe avalanche dangers we pressed on to the most rewarding summit of our 3 mountain trip.The magnificent crater was steaming and gurgling in dramatic fashion. The shear size of the blast crater is just remarkable.We then glissaded down the steep slopes and now are only left with pleasant memories of a fantastic volcanoe...Jim W

Worm Flows Route- great weather, almost hot. Everyone stopped at the crater rim, but didn't make the true summit this day. I pushed on over some scarey cornices and found the true high point.

Great hike. Clouds around summit made it impossible to get close to edge but got within 200 feet.

Went up Worm Flows with maybe about a hundred other people on a gorgeous day. It was pretty windy near the top, so the traverse along the rim to the true summit (no other takers while I was there) was a bit of work.

Date Climbed: Apr 3, 2011


We snowshoed up from Marble Mt. Snow Park, and took approximately 6 hours to summit. Above 6500 feet or so, we got above the clouds and had amazing views of Hood, Adams, and Rainier. A bit icy near the top, but a great day out nevertheless.

A great trip with a great group of guys with bluebird skies. The snowboard line down was nice too.

Date Climbed: Jan 30, 2011
Started at Marble Mount snow park. Rain up to 4000', then partially clearing skies giving us a false promise of hope. Hard snow and unbreakable crust lower on the mountain with large sections of water ice covered in wind-packed powder higher up. Crampons made the going a bit easier but weren't really necessary. Whiteout conditions and a late start forced us to turn around 300-400 feet below the summit. Snowboard descent was very challenging due to the whiteout, but once we dropped below the clouds and figured out our route it became quite enjoyable.

The snow below timberline was choppy, wet and heavy and I found myself struggling to remain upright during the last mile or two through the trees.
