Smoking Mt. St. Helens
Every few minutes, Mt. St. Helens sends up a plume of noxious smoke, a reminder that this is no dormant volcano. It can come out of the main crater or one of the side craters, including a small spire that appears to be the new (as of 1980) peak.

I read there's still a lot of volcanic
activity happening inside the crater.
That's why the area is "off-limits" to
the general public & day hikers.

I was thinking of climbing it next summer. Does that sound like something I could do? (I can climb up to a 5-9 in the gym and I have all of the gear, but I want to start on mountains.)

the wrong person to ask. I don't know you
well enough for a correct determination.
Have you climbed Mount Si, yet? Do you like
climbing on snow or rocks? How about the PCT?
Have you seen Red Mountain or Mt. Thompson?
You must choose for yourself - and you have
VERY many choices!!!

I have climbed Mt. Si and Mt. Pugh, and I have been to the Sahale Glacier. I love to climb everything, but I am not sure if I have the skills yet.

final advice is: Slow down and use your own
thoughts to determine which mountain to climb.
Look at several pictures of the mountain, from
all directions and seasons. Love the mountain,
and it will love you. Never ... say never!

Before completing my successful climb of
Rainier in 1984, I was very unsure about
my skills. But, the people in my life gave
me the inspiration I needed, to move foward
and continue with my dream.
If a dream meant anything to me, would it
seem a bold reality?
If I knew my hand of fate, would I do or
hesitate???

Thank you for your advice! I will be researching Mt. St. Helens in these coming months. I will try to find the right mountain to climb for my abilities, without doubting myself or overestimating my abilities. Thanks very much for your help!

Yeah, you can climb it. It's pretty much just a hike on a trail so it's all class 1 except maybe the half hour or so that it takes to go from the end of the trail to the highest point on the rim (class 2). At least that's how it was 6 years ago and I wouldn't think it's gotten any harder. Good photo btw.
