Was able to snag a pass from someone who couldn't go. It was an excellent hike. Just beat some clouds that were forming to the summit and the views were great!

ernestssonEnd-of-the-Year Winter Ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 30, 2012


Snowshoed up the Worm Flows route. Attempted to ski down, which was a disaster as 1) the snow was crusty over soft stuff, so I kept plunging through with one ski but not the other, and 2) I hadn't been skiing in years and didn't really have enough confidence. Also, my legs were tired after the ten-odd hours of slogging up in the snow on snowshoes. So, not the best planning on my part! Did eventually make it down, lesson learned. Do more skiing before any more ski mountaineering trips.

Date Climbed: May 11, 2013


Hiked before the limiting started. Had a great hike up, and snowboarded back down passing about 300 people on the descent, some of the men were in dresses for the mothers day weekend festivities.

Great sunrise views of Mt. Adams from the top.

Date Climbed: May 11, 2013


This will have been my first Cascade volcano. This was the last weekend before the 100 permits per day cap goes into effect for the summer, and 650 permits were issued. Yeah, it was a zoo (or a party, depending on how you feel), but we beat the crowds with a 4 am start, mainly motivated by the prospect of the ski conditions being better early. It was nevertheless too soft because of a poor refreeze, but still a blast, especially up high (and there was a line of spectators - I mean, climbers - all the way up and down the mountain wooting as we skied by, which is always fun). The bottom mile or so was melted out. I wish I could have spent more time enjoying the summit; the best view is not from the highpoint, and the crater is otherworldly.

Up the Worm Flows route from Marble Mountain SnoPark... where the actual route goes above treeline was anyone's guess, folks were swarming all over the mountain. Absolutely beautiful day! Great view across the crater. I was suprised everyone else stopped at the crater rim rather than continueing on the the highpoint. Had the top all to myself!

What a day! We almost forgot is was still winter. No permit fees, no reservation fees and no quota limits, just perfect climbing conditions and a 5000 foot ski to the car. Yes all the way to the car. Perfect.

Date is a guess. Sure wouldn't want to do this one when melted out, much more pleasant as a snow climb.

Perfect first climb with my 13 year old. Really nice on top. Killer on the knees on the way down down climbing all the boulders but still really fun!

skimmy54Re: Summited with my 13 year old
Thats awesome! Would you say the hike was pretty technical? Did you take crampons or an ice axe with you? I am planning to do this hike towards the end of January, do you have any advice?
