Date Climbed: Jul 26, 2012


I tried to summit in May with skis but had to turn around when the snow was getting too soft. I didn't drag those things all the way up there to ski crappy snow. This time around I left the skis behind and made the summit no problem. A little under 5 hours from Helen Lake. Summited with my cousin Cory. Found very few other people on the mountain but met a couple of very cool people on the summit. Well worth the effort!

Finally made it. First time trying Avalanche Gulch is summer; much easier than expected, but a great day none the less. 4:28 from Helen Lake to the summit.

Went up the Hotlum-Bolum Ridge from the North Gate. Hardly anyone on that route. Perfect weather on summit day. Beautiful views.

Date Climbed: Jun 1, 2012


Perfect weather. Lot's of slushy snow, snowshoes on the way up to Helen, camped on Thursday night, then headed up Friday morning. Headed up Sargent's Ridge to the top of Thumb Rock, then on up through the Red Banks to Misery Hill then the summit. Only two other people in the summit register.

Date Climbed: May 27, 2012


Success is subjective...20 minutes from Summit but turned around short to make an appointment with my ride South. When we thought the top of (Misery Hill?) was the summit, we were willing to push the clock but upon gaining it and learning there was a little more walking to be done, my friend & I called it.

Date Climbed: May 26, 2012


With a storm system having passed through during the week, but a 2 day window of good weather clearing any potential avalanche conditions, we drove from Corvallis, Oregon to Shasta on a Saturday morning and hiked up to Lake Helena to camp out in preparation for a Sunday morning summit attempt. We got to camp in 15-20 degree temperatures and 25 mph winds. With exhaustion and hypothermia becoming real concerns, we barely slept and bailed the next morning. Conditions were perfect on Sunday morning, but we had no energy left to make it.

Unseasonably warm temps actually added to the difficulty with slushy snow down low and the direct sun the entire two days on the mountain gave us both a bad burn. Otherwise a great time with interesting route finding and beautiful scenery.
