Spectacular January day, sunny and warm. Sticky snow made travel extremely slow and difficult in the chute. We would posthole to our waists without snowshoes, but with them snow would stick to the bottom with every step and we would slide down the hill! Must have been the first party for 2004...no signs of anyone else being up there at all. Awesome glissade down!

I did this on what started as a partly cloudy day. just below the summit and after about 30 seconds of being able to see Mt Washington the clouds surrounded me and I could only see 10 yards in any direction. Then on the way down it started getting misty and then rainy. I met up with 2 of the guys on the plaque who maintain the trail on my descent, who advised me of some other area hikes. I also didn't get to see any goats. I will be back another time.

Last time I post a summit log on Ellinor--promise! (It's my favorite nearby climb--especially in winter...)



Climbed after work with Rachel Wissenschaft (actually a German name I can't quite remember). Amazing evening climb and summit just as the sun was going down. Stunning cirrus clouds and a red glow on all things. Some well-earned Moose Drool at the pub on 101 in Hoodsport.

With much pain I climbed relentlessly up Ellinor, despite my busted tail bone. My friends Jason, Karen and Melissa joined me. Unfortunately the cloud cover was pretty thick and only Mt. Washington and Lake Ellinor were visible. But the rewarding part was to see a family of Mtn. Goats and a little baby goat, which we all took pictures of. We were eventually mobbed by Chipmunks who loved the goldfishies we fed them with. It was still a great trip despite the cloudy weather!:)

This is an awesome climb because of the view from the summit. The highest peaks in WA are all visible from Baker to St. Helens. The interior view of the Olympics is very spectacular and most of the Olympic mountains can be seen from this height. My dad attempted the climb with me but didn't reach the summit. It took me about an hour and a half from the trail head to reach the summit and it was a fairly strenous climb. I'm hoping to do it again before I go back to school in TN.

Took my friend joel on his first climb! Parked at lower trail head. Began climbing around 4:45am and summited around 7:15. Great view! The snow was really hard on the top 3in and soft underneath, which made me a little uneasy in the chute. Passed at leat 40 people on the way down. Fun day!

Great Sunday solo summit. Drove up from Portland early in the morning, started about 8:45 am. Gloomy until about halfway through the chute. Snow was nice and hard. Decent views at the summit by 11:15. Sun had softened the snow up so the glissade down was sweet. Had a hole in the seat of my pants though so when I stood up at the bottom, I had a couple pounds of snow inside my shell pants that fell nicely down my legs and were held there by my gaiters. Back down to lower trailhead by 1:30 pm after about 45 minutes on the summit.

Most beautiful day yet on Mt. Ellinor with Eileen, Tyson, Magnus, and Ian. Late afternoon summit was absolutely incredible and the mountains, Ellinor included, much more snow-laden than I've seen them on previous climbs.

Fabulous day with Peter S., Tyson, Magnus & Ian. Awesome weather. Spectacular views of Rainier, Adams & St Helen's on the way up. Glorious summit with even more mountain views at the top. Nice, easy slog up and Glissade down. Perfect little day hike! Great SP company.

Beautiful day on Ellinor with Mac Cook & Kate Wunderbar. Tons of sun and was in a t-shirt by the time we got above tree line; could even wear a t-shirt on the summit, for a little. Reached the summit in just under 3 hrs and roundtrip in 5. Not a bad glissade!

Great day on Ellinor with Mark Savoca. We parked well below Lower Trail Head due to heavy snow on the road & snowshoed the road to Upper Trail Head & began our climb. Did not climb up the immediate chute as you emerge from timberline because of slab snow conditions. Headed West and around the prominent knob and then up several of the rock outcrops. Tough going up steep sections due to deep snow. Beautiful day, with intermittant sun and cloud cover. Great views of Ellinor and Mt. Washington. A summit atttempt seemed ill-advised given apparent avy conditions.

After getting my truck stuck for an hour, we finally got started from the lower trailhead. Got to the avy chute by 5:30pm. With headlamps, ice axes and crampons fully deployed, we topped out of the avy chute by 6:15pm. Set-up camp and woke to blue skys. Once again a great glissade all the way down the avy chute.

Great climb in beautiful autumn weather. The mountain goats didn't disappoint--first time I saw them in the U.S. (they are, after all, imports).

Always a fun one winter or summer!!!! I want to try route 2 (west side) sometime soon. I also plan to try a little snowboarding on the way down later this winter!

This was my wife's first ever summit. It's a totally fun hike, with a good possibility of seeing goats. Still waiting for that ultra clear day with a six volcano vista. About 90 minutes to the top. Maybe '04 I'll climb the snow gully.

1.5 hours from lower TH to summit. Made a nice Sunday afternoon hike. Excellent wievs from Olympus to Adams. Could have stayed another hour on the summit if it wasn't for the stream of loud people... Thanks to RPC for the suggestion.

People keep saying "The Chute", but there is a real chute at the Y at mile 1.25 that is the winter route. Or am I getting this wrong.





In any case, the trail is very obvious and fantastically maintained. I climbed up to about 4500 ft. before being totally lost into a very big, very dense cloud/fog situation. Occassional views of Lake Cushman were glorious, but beware mixing of marine currents and high temps, because there is so much moisture up there it only takes a little push to become a cloud.





Hoodsport temp was 72 when we started. Dewpoint was 62. Yikes. Will definitely repeat trip when high pressure ridge is in place. On the plus side, mixing air made for wind and fewer flies.





Also, timing nearly perfect on wildflowers. Go this weekend or next, latest.

Mountain goat with kid on summit pestered me intensely for salt. I was afraid she was going to chew my sweaty shirt off my back.
