Short approach was nice! Also cool to see the masses of non mountain people. Sweet glissade too!

There were wet slides coming down in the basin at the top of The Chute, which was exciting to watch, if easy to stay clear of.

This was the most recent of two times I have climbed this mountain. One of the better glissades I have done.

Typical with any mountain with a short approach and a road leading to the base. Fricking yahoo's go and get hurt and it gives the rest of us a bad name, like we're reckless thrill-seekers or something.

A lot of yahoos on this mountain, glissading with crampons and other idiocies. Try it on a weekday when the yahoo population is lower.

CzechMarkFirst peak in the Olympics  Sucess!

CzechMark

Awesome on the first ascent. Went back a couple weeks ago and down-climbed a few hundred feet on the SW ridge from the summit. Awesome, steep, exposed class 3. I know everyone goes to Mt. Washington, but has anyone here done the SW ridge of Ellinor? Looks like it leads to the Staircase area. Possible bushwhacking involved.

First snow camping outing for a class. It had just recently snowed a lot, so making our way from about 2 miles below the lower TH to just out of the trees was interesting, especially with students and overnight gear. After setting up camp, myself, a few other instructors and students decided to kick steps to the summit for the rest of the team and then try for A Peak the next day. Fun times

climbnshootGreat day for a climb  Sucess!

A very fun and accessible climb. We had great weather a good views of the Hood Canal and Mt Rainier. Basically this was a hike until the final 1,000 feet, which steepens up to nearly 45ยบ. There wasn't anything dangerous in the ascent chute so you could presumably climb it w/o an iceaxe, but why not just bring one! :) It will definitely help you on the glissade.

I took a few photos and put them on my Flickr account:

mtncorgNice intro to the Olympics  Sucess!

Good chance to see goats and a nice view of Seattle and Tacoma from here and Washington. The traverse over to Mt Washington is a grand day alpine adventure.

My first mountain way back. A cool one and a great traverse to Washington (a little on the exposed side though the way I went).

Went up as a boy scout in August, surprised to find it snowing at the summit.

Just enough snow/ice on trail to keep early crowds down. Nice fall day.

It was hot (for Washington State) but it was a beautiful hike. Crowded as usual but a fun leg stretcher before Rainier.

One of my top 5 favorite climbs, has everything for a non-technical route. The goats were impressive to watch as they walked down the steep ravine off the summit, on the west side. Definitely returning with family and friends in the future. Cant wait to glissade down!

RedwicTwo Summits, One Day!!!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 2, 2009

Fellow SPer "Gimpilator" and I summited Mount Ellinor in the morning, taking in the views and seeing at least 15 mountain goats, but then wondered about also summiting neighboring peak Mount Washington via the ridgeline traverse between them. The traverse looked a little too dicey without snowpack covering the entire ridgeline, so we went all the way down to the trailhead and ascended Mount Washington from its south trailhead. 5700' elevation gain in one day was great.

Redwic and I made quick work of this one stopping only to gape at a few goats along the way. We had tentative plans to attempt the traverse over to Mount Washington but it appeared to be lacking the necessary snow cover. We returned to the car and then climbed Washington from the standard route. 5700+ feet of total gain. What a day!

Great conditioning climb. Great views. Great goats. Easy enough for beginners (if clear of snow). May want to go up and down a few times to really get a good work out. Trail is nice and steep in parts!
