fzteMy first summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 31, 2009

fzte

Got an early start as the sun was coming up. Climbed with 35lbs of water bottles in my pack to condition my legs. Great view from the summit gave way to fog, wind, and clouds shortly after getting there.

Snow started about 1 mile from the haystack. too much ice on the haystack to go up, so the viewpoint had to do. Beautiful views and a fun hike.

Who in the Seattle are hasn't climbed this summit. Everyone and their brother has hiked this trail way too many times. I'm set with doing it just once.

Yes, but I've mowed the lawn at the trailhead 5 times! Who's done that! Map at http://www.willhiteweb.com/snoqualmie_pass/mount_si/north_bend_233.htm

MlaskyRockin Hike  Sucess!

Mlasky

I wasn't keeping track of dates of peaks climbed when i did this. But i do remember how cool it was. I had lived in seattle and was on vacation with a friend that had never been to the Northwest. We arrived at night from Idaho so they were pretty shocked by all the vegetation. Particularly how big the ferns get and how dizzying it can be looking straight up in the middle of all the trees...

Hiking Si in the winter is slightly more challenging, but it's still "Mt. Sighhh". Overcrowded and not overly-spectacular. Good for conditioning.

For anyone living in Seattle, Mt. Si is a close, beautiful hike, and effective for training too. Have gone both light and heavy, in winter and summer. First time remember tons of snow and the Gray Jays on top. My second time, I topped the haystack in poor weather. From the top, a seasoned mountaineer pointed out the different peaks of the Eastern Front of the Olympics, singling out The Brothers, and my future became clear. Notably, saw a family of short-tailed weasels running among the summit rocks in the summer.

One of my first hikes in Washington - remarkably uncrowded ... had to hike out in the dark and rescue some people who didn't have any lights. It gets darker pretty early in the winter, people!!

This is a great, if slightly long (probably due to the line that forms near the top) and monotonous climb with great views from the top. My wife and I have not tried the Haystack yet, but from what I hear, the views aren't worth the scramble. The first time we did Mount Si, there was snow and ice on the trail for the last mile with clear views at the top. The second time was regular old dirt from start to finish with clouds and not much of a view at all. This is a great training hike, but I'm not a huge fan of the number of people on the trail. There tends to be a larger-than-normal number of rude hikers, too.

Busy, crowded hike up to the plateau area. Everyone, it seems, stays there, while few continue to the true summit. Reaching the base of the Haystack, DB and I headed straight up the steepish (class 4-5) terrain left of the standard scrambling route. Good exposure and a nice summit.

We got a late start and debated ascending the haystack, but did it anyway knowing we would be hiking back in the dark. Despite some haze, we could see Seattle, Bellevue, Snoqualmie Valley, Mount Rainier, and many other mountains. Our cell phones made surprisingly good flashlights over the last half mile of trail in the dark.

Yeah! this is a cool little mountain. The hike up through the forest was wonderful with a few tremendous old growth trees around. I loved the Haystack Scramble! There were only marginal views because of clouds. Shooting for Glacier peak tomorrow!

Caught a nice weather window, amidts one of the crappiest winter/spring's ever. Loved the Haystack scramble (sounds like a item on a Denny's menu, mmmm), and will likely be back to do this a few more times before the snow finally melts out from the more interesting summits.

Picked the one decent weather day of the weekend to bag my first Washington peak with Nordic Lass. Very well traveled trail through heavily forested terrain. The haystack at the top was the highlight with some scrambling to reach the summit. The views would have been awesome had we not been socked in with fog and clouds. We summited in two hours. Like others have said, good training hike.
Looking forward to more Pacific Northwest hikes.
