nartrebskipped the Haystack
Date Climbed: Dec 21, 2013


Visibility about twenty feet, slushy conditions, and just not feeling great - had spent almost four hours hiking up the trail to the base of the haystack.
Did have fun hanging out with a swarm of grey jays who tried to steal my lunch, and one pika that was afraid of the jays.

locke456One Of My Favorite Dayhikes  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2011


Easily accessible off of the highway, Mount Si is an absolute blast of a hike, which suddenly turns into a challenging (but not TOO challenging) scramble at the Haystack. Highly recommended. Also, stop by Twede's in North Bend for cheap, delicious calories either before or after (or both!) and you've got yourself a perfect dayhike.

I use this hike for training. I don't actually like it. Too popular.

The hike to the Haystack is well maintained and easy for everyone to use. The hard part is the Haystack. For me going up all those rocks was not a big deal. I just new that it was going to be difficult to scramble down.

Made it to the top very quickly (pushed by a seriously in-shape friend) and enjoyed the amazing view on a beautiful, clear and sunny day. Spent an hour at the top of the haystack without seeing a single person. We were also lucky enough to spot and share some time with a good sized mountain goat :)

Clear skies to the west and ominous clouds stirring about to the east made for an eerie final ascent.

jacobsmithM2-3?  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 7, 2013


Climbed w/ Kati as a training thing, actually my first time going to the top of the haystack. the scamble route was covered with about three inches of fresh snow, with the older underlying stuff and ice in some areas, it was a tricky scramble, as each hold had to be excavated, and an even trickier downclimb. any hairier and i would have wanted crampons and ice tools. based on my limited mixed climbing experience, i would say it was around an M2-3 in these conditions.

JoelSkokGreat destination  Sucess!


Has all the elements--short drive to get there, year round access, old growth approach, gymnastic finish on the Haystack, great views, great workout. Done it many times, even as a kid with my neighbors and their Toy Manchester dog named Goliath

We took the back route up to the top on New Year's Day. Tons of snow, which made for a tricky descent. Not too much traffic (surprisingly).

Glad there are these half-day quality workouts in the mountains complete with a bit of scrambling near my new home of Seattle, since I'm apparently not settled enough yet for longer excursions. Foggy, so no views, but nice ambiance.

Cascade Scrambler

I really don't care for the hike up to the gully, but sometimes friends who have never hiked say "What's that big mountain out in North Bend? Let's go there." Ugh. Really? Ok.

Took a party of three females up to the basin. One was content staying behind, the other two bagged the summit with me. If two women who have never hiked before can bag the summit, you know it's easy. One hand in front of the other. One foot in front of the other. Yes, people have fallen here, but really, as far as scrambling goes, this is a piece of cake. I have no idea how many times I've really been up here.

Finally got to the true summit with my friend Jordan Halas. Scramble was no joke but the foot and handholds were there. Now the monkey is finally off my back.
