Crisp blue day, snowshoes on, and moving fast. Topped out and thrashed our way back down the front with a good butt gissade thrown in for kicks.

sixsigmafoolRoute Climbed: Alpental Route Date Climbed: April 18, 2004  Sucess!
First time back in a couple of years,. and my first winter ascent. Weather was great, but visibility was mediocre. Trail was still firm from the night's cold. A few softening areas added excitement as postholing was always a possiibility. Still lots of snow, but its melting fast. 3 hrs 13 mins to the top. Had the mountain to ourselves on the way up. A big thanks to whoever kicked steps earlier in the week, and a big %&&$!*&% to the snow boarders that wiped out half the steps! Decent views from the summit. Left after 3 more hikers showed up. Passed three more on the way down, and that was it! Nice day in the wonderful Cascades. 5 hrs 9 mins round trip.

First time on this trail, and the description on the home page is fairly accurate. This was my partner's third attempt, and he was glad to finally summit. Hard to believe it is only 3200' of gain. It feels more like 4200'. The views were great until about 1000' from the summit, then the clouds/fog moved in. Only three other hikers all day. Nice training hike.

20 years of hiking in the Cascades and this was my first trip up Snoqualmie. A sunny Wednesday with few people around. I passed 2 backpadkers and 2 summiters. Great view from the top. A real knee masher on the way down.

Stiff hike, rocky, all uphill, etc. Great vista! Kind of lonely up here. Over 120 cars in the lot, all headed for Snow Lake, apparently.

Reached the top on a gloomy day, but the right combo of new snow and temps made for a glissade to the bottom in just minutes.

The climb started out nicely, weather was ok..clouds where at roughly 5,500ft. I had a bit of a chest cold so it was slow going but made it to the summit in under 4 hours. The snow was deep in spots and there were many rotten spots that sank me up to my chest in spots. After summiting the rain came and we passed two climbers still 45 minuets from the summit. Hope they made it safely. Got a little off course on the decent but made it safely with a round trip time of 4.5 hours. Camera ran out of batteries on the summit so no pictures.

Awesome day with blue skies. Climbed on small amounts of snow and heather and rock which never makes for a happy climb on exposed faces. Got to the false summit and broke trail/snowshoed up to summit block for a great lunch. Still not a good enough base of snow for skiing, but hopefully soon. Where is this Enigma Gully place?
