Got a somewhat late start ~10am. We were on the top at lunch. So many goats. It was crazy

Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2015


Starting from the lower trailhead on a scorcher day made it a bit difficult. Apparently missed the goats on top (they probably left to look for shade) by sheer minutes and had solitude for 90% of the day. Did I mention it was hot?

Started at the upper trailhead and made quick way up this short, steep route. Great, tough little hike, and one that I hope to do again. The clouds moved in during the hike, so the views were pretty much nonexistent sadly. Hoping the weather cooperates a little better next time.

Hiked to the summit via the upper trailhead on a cool, wet day in September, 2009. The Olympic Mountains are gorgeous and I hope to go back someday.

A very cool, steep, but short climb this is. Lots of snow from the previous storm, but a clear blue sky on this day. Once above tree line you begin getting rewarded with great views. Want to come back and climb the chute with a bit more snow. One of my favorite locals for sure.

This mountain has an excellent "effort-to-reward" ratio in terms of experience and scenery. Loved it. Watch out for all of the mountain goats!

Hadn't really planed on doing it until the next day but at the last minute headed up, started at the lower TH at 4:33 pm, reached the top in 1 1/2 hours and down in about 1 hr. Didn't see any goats.

Climbed from the lower trail head to get the added elevation gain. Summited via the summer route, although we deviated and went straight up the shoot instead of taking the switch backs. Lots of goats on top. Great trip.

We started at the Upper Trailhead. I'd say the last half of the trail to the avalance chute was mostly snow. Not too bad though. When we got to the chute, visibility was pretty bad. I was really wishing for an axe, or at least trekking poles. Might be the last time I listen to reports online of folks doing a route without... I ended up kicking steps up much of the chute for my partner and myself. At the summit, a nannie goat with two kids basically chased us off, and the visibility worsened. Glissading high up was sketchy due to not being able to see what was below. I took solace in the fact that there were many on the mountain more ill-prepared than we were lol. The glissade was a blast, really cool (but crowded!) mountain. I'm going to have to go back in good weather!

Date Climbed: Mar 10, 2013


Road is still impassable about a mile below the trailhead. Headed up into some light snow, but kept going in hopes the clouds would burn off. Unfortunately, they did not but the snow was terrific for kickstepping up the Chute. Was able to enjoy some views from the top. Traversed the ridge between Ellinor and Washington but stopped when I felt it was unsafe since I was solo. Yet another great climb of Ellinor!

Date Climbed: May 26, 2012


Ive climbed her many many times, its always fun. I use the winter route year around to avoid the crowds and make it more of a scramble. When the chutes full of snow I always bring my board, summit to bottom of chute in like 2 minutes :P Theres lots of trad climbing and class 4 scrambles available up here as well.
