SnowsloggerSecond time's the charm  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 2, 2006

Snowslogger

The first time I tried this back in the 1980s I ended up bivying in my jacket in a tree well surrounded by snow - very cold. It was a good learning experience, though I built this up to be very hard. Came back again solo many years later and had a great time climbing up the snow couloir to the top. A very fun peak with snow.

The 2 Steve's and I started early in the AM under headlamp light at the Lower Lena Lake trailhead and were on the summit in less than 6 hours. We enjoyed a leisurely lunch and flew back down to the car while still daylight. We saw no one. We had the mountain to ourselves!

We did it as an overnight trip. Summitted on day one and hiked out on day two. Without snow there was a lot of loose rock kicked down on us. Not much of a view as clouds blocked all but down to Hood Canal.

My first visit here in the mid-eighties (as a boy scout) was a disaster. Not wanting to wait for my scoutmaster, once we reached the climbers camp...my brother and I pushed on with no route info. We went up a gully a few thousand feet but were way, way off route! The rest of the troop went on to almost summit via the correct route. Years later in 93 we returned and the brothers summitted the Brothers. Then, two years later after I returned from 2 years where I could not climb, we ran up again...the brothers up the brothers. On the summit we met the only other climbers for the day, another pair of brothers.

YEMFrom Lena Lake  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 12, 2009

YEM

One of the best approach hikes I can remember. Great forest, a lake, waterfalls and plenty of shade. We camped near the edge of the trees above the throngs of people at the climbers camp. We seemed to be the last people on the mountain after everyone passed us going down. Bring helmets, there was lots of rock fall in the hourglass. Two goats paid us a visit before Cammie (my border collie), Taylor (human) and I descended. Despite the trail leading almost to the summit, a lot of people mentioned getting misplaced.

5 AM start from climbers camp under clear skies. Made good time to Lunch Rock when the fog started to roll in. We took the standard route 1, with little rout finding difficulties until the final few hundred feet. The hourglass is mostly melted out and should be free of snow in a couple weeks. The scree was a little annoying, but manageable. The main danger was the 8 mountain goats kicking rocks down on our heads and trying to lick our hands and faces. Bring your helmet. Overall, it was a great day with 2 of the 4 group members summiting.

Via Lena Lake and spent the night in the Valley of Silent Men in June 1994. Good snow conditions including a Class 4 snow section. I remember the incredible views and 2500 foot glissade back to camp. Awesome climb!

Great climb, awesome views! Bad beta led me astray and got onto some scary terrain, but it worked out. Lots of loose rock on the way down.

Was this the one we did on a Saturday and then ran up to Port Angeles and did Mt. Angeles the next day? If so, we can confirm the date.

Yeah, can't believe that was 6 years ago. I ran up and hiked most of Mt. Colonel Bob with my dog a couple weekends ago, was remembering driving up there with you guys and Blondie. Good stuff.

Brian - think you're remembering right about the natural ac. Fun outing -- can't believe it's been this many years (think I got the year right at least).

Putting down the same date as Radek but who knows when it was. I remember a sweaty bushwhack to some snow and then a hot, bright climb. And being tired on the summit. Didn't we camp in like a natural air conditioner with cold air blowing up from a melting out creek? I might be getting confused with another but if this is the one I think, Shirley made excellent pasta at camp. I think I remember Shirley kicking our ass on the hike out too. I could barely keep up. Fun time.

...date is a guess now. With Shirley & Brian Jenkins (& Blondie). I recall the beautiful rainforest hike on the approach & of course the summit views. A great time was had by all of us I think.

11.5 hours car to car with Aaron. A nice summit. Had some foot pain on the descent. The trail is really nice, loved all the log crossings.

Left the Lena Lake trailhead at 1:00 pm ... made it to basecamp in four hours. Spent the night and started the climb by 5:30 am. We were on the summit at 10:30 am. Great conditions, beautiful day. Warm enough to enjoy lunch on the summit!

Did it in one day with some coworkers. Little snow cover this year so it's easy to find the camp at 3000ft because if you miss that turn off and go to the end of the valley it's a bit harder.

This climb was lead by Bill Link. Our group of 10 OSAT members spent Saturday night at 3000 feet in the upper portion of the Vally Of Silent Men. Sunday we began at dawn and were on the summit by 10 am. Two goats followed us from the base of the snow filled gully all the way to the summit.
