Mount Rainier Climb

Fellow Climbers!
I have a few noob questions, that I was hoping to get some answers to. Last year I hiked the PCT, and the most enjoyable part was climbing the mountains. Ever since then , all I've wanted to do is climb more mountains. I love it. I want to get into more high alpine climbing, and the mountain closest to me would be Mount Rainier. So, I want to summit Mount Rainier, but ...

Three Sisters Wilderness question: Green Lakes to Camp Lake

Hey all,

My wife are heading out on a two night trip through the Three Sisters Wilderness. We want to start from Green Lakes Trailhead and end at Pole Creek Trailhead, and bag a peak (South or Middle) sometime between the two. We have people to pick us up in the Pole Creek side.

I thought the Green Lakes trail went pretty much directly north, but pulling up my map, I see it heads northeast ...

GOAT ROCKS: Hike Old Snowy or Hawkeye Point Next Week?

Please give us your advice on the following -

On the week of June 7, 2015, two of us are hiking the Goat Rocks wilderness area. We would like to bag a few scenic peaks and we've narrowed it down to Hawkeye Peak or Old Snowy.

We have only standard hiking gear. We do not have ice axe, crampons or helmets. Please keep that in mind. That is why we passed up several other Goat ...

Camp at the South summit trailhead Fri. night, lunch counter or sunrise camp on Saturday, summit on Sunday, off mountain and home on Monday. I've done the 2 day up and down and would be willing for that option if no one cares ...

Bailey Traverse; Elwha snow finger

Hi, I am planning to do the Bailey traverse solo this summer in late July/early August and have been pouring over topo maps, multiple trip reports, and the description in the Olympic Mountain climbing guide. I will not be carrying a GPS and would love to meet with someone, or at least chat over phone/email, who has done the route (or will have by the time I go). There a couple of spots where route ...

How does Hood compare?

Hello, my brother and I are planning on climbing Mt. Hood on July 6th this year. We haven't been exposed to too much cramponing in the past and we're planning on climbing without a guide up the South Side (Hogsback) route. I recently climbed the Cristo Couloir of Quandary Peak in Colorado and wanted to know if any climbers here have climbed both the Hogsback as well as the Cristo Couloir and could let me ...

Mount Aix

I know the snow levels are way less than normal in Washington. I read that Mount Aix is typically climbable mid-May. Given this year's snow levels, I assume it should be good to go now. Thoughts? Or better yet, anyone have current beta?

Thanks for your time!

Best Way to Complete Diablo-Chelan Loop?

I'm planning to hike from Diablo Lake to Stehekin in September. I want to hike back to Hwy 20 by a different route, ending at Rainy Pass. It looks like I could use the PCT, or take the Rainbow Creek Trail to either McAlester Trail or Rainbow Lake Trail. Which way would people recommend?
