Road to TH for Hidden Lake Peaks

Looking for some feedback, as Hidden Lake Peaks is on my to do list for my trip back to the Cascades this August.

Is the road to the trailhead (Sibley Creek?) passable in a standard vehicle? I've read a number of reports - some saying yes standard vehicles can make it and others saying that 4WD or high clearance is needed. I'll be in a rental car, no high clearance, and am not interested in ...

Monte Cristo

Any one been into Monte Cristo area? Specifically the East Wilman's Spire?
Road conditions? Still only a log to cross at 1 mile? That's what the reliable Ranger said?

Snow Conditions in Enchantments

Looking to head into the Enchantments area mid-late next week and curious what the snow levels are like. Has anybody been out there recently? Specifically is the W. Ridge of Prusik free of snow? Seems like it's going to warm up but might go for other peaks in the area instead like Dragontail, Colchuk, or Little Annapurna.

First time in the Cascades. I'm going to assume ice ax and crampons are a must?

Tomyhoi Peak

Nick and I went to Tomyhoi Peak Sunday/Monday for a attempt again on this familiar mountain. Snow most of the way. We made it to the main summit base, but to tricky for us to negotiate the last few hundred feet on snow, ice over rock. Been there a few times, but not in these conditions, no gear. Chicken psyche took over. Bivied at the only bare flat ground at base of Yellow Aster Butte ...

Anyone interested in Rainier for mid May?

Hey Guys,

New to Summit Post, but avid climber. I've done several of the summits in the cascades and really all over the states. One, that I haven't bagged though, is Rainier.

I will be out in Seattle for work on May 11-13th and had hoped to attempt Rainier the following weekend: drive to Paradise Friday evening or Saturday morning, hike to base camp, take off early Sunday morning and back down for a flight ...

Avalanche Awareness

I live on the east coast and the second week of May, me and some friends were looking to head to Mt Adams for the South Spur climb. I've been checking the northwest avalanche reports, but overall I'm trying to do some research to make myself more aware of warning signs and hazards to look out for. What are some typical hazards/signs to look out for on the south spur route. As long as were ...

Mt Adams South Spur Route

I live on the east coast, but I'm looking to head out to climb Mt Adams, the south spur route, either the last week of April, or first week in May with some friends. The ranger station has been helpful so far, but I'm just looking for anyone, that's been on the mountain recently, or has some experiences on climbing Adams in early season. I know that we have to snowshoe our way on the ...

Eightmile Area Suggestions

I will be at the Eightmile Campground for 5 nights at the end of August. I already have some hikes firmed up, but was looking for some suggestions from those who know the area much better than myself. I will be hiking with my son and his friends for 2 or 3 days and plan on using those to get to the core Enchantment zone one time (most likely Little Annapurna) and probably either Eightmile ...
