|I agree with dshoe about the rope. At least take one.|
I might not have used mine on a nice day, but the wind was screamin and I was glad I had one for the way down.

|This climb/hike is probably one of my most favorite that I have done so far. It is definitely "short and sweet!" Round-trip took about 6 hours. Some nice third class scrambling just below the "saddle." Despite my better judgement, went ahead and climbed the summit block without a rope; can honestly say that I probably would not do it again without one. The views from the top are awesome, and the experience is grand, but the consequences of what could happen on that last 80 feet or so, unroped, are not really worth it.......................................In other words, no matter how good you think you are, you would be very wise to take a rope.|

|I enjoyed the last steep section of the climb & the summit was pretty neat, being it was so small. Had a good time camping & hanging-out at Diamond Lake, we also had to play tourist & check-out Crater Lake.|

|Climbed with (and took summit photo of) "Hammer". The climb was pretty straight forward. I enjoyed it, and would do it again, but its a hell of a long drive.|

|Great climb with the Chemeketan Climbing Club. Great views of Crater Lake, Diamond Lake, and of the Sisters Complex to the North. |
Our Climb went well with my uncle leading the summit pinnacle. I think if I was to do it again I would free climb it and save the weight of the rope. Some however might freak with the down climb.

|Last 100 feet on Northeast ridge. Route moves to East with great exposure as you near the summit. A bit much for unaided climb. Can see into Crater Lake from summit.|

|This was my first class 3 scramble and scared the pants off me. But Eric and I felt like brave mountaineers after overcoming our initial fear and climbing the summit blocks. Great little volcanic needle with excellent holds.|
It was this view from Crater Lake that got our attention as we drove north, and literally climbed this on a whim. It's hard to just drive by without it getting your attention.

|After hiking most of the way up on the West Ridge, I took the NW (?) ridge for the last hundred feet to the summit. It came in at about 5.4 or so on pretty solid rock. Great exposure!|
From the summit you can see all the way south to Mount Shasta and all the way north to Mount Jefferson. Quite impressive.
