locke456A Lot Of Bang For Your Buck  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 20, 2013

locke456

Easy drive to the trailhead in a 2WD sedan, short but beautiful hike that, near the end, starts to feel like you're climbing a "real" mountain...and then you suddenly leave the forest and have Howlock and Thielsen looming over you, and Crater Lake, the Sisters, Bailey, etc. in the distance. Would be a fun dayhike by itself, but tack on Howlock for an amazing day of incredible views.

This is a great hike and fantastic views from the summit. The Tipsoo Trail is well maintained and goes right to the summit. Incredible views of Howlock and Thielsen.

On my way over to Howlock Mountain and Thielsen East Peak, but didn't make it to the latter. It was fun to scramble the Sawtooth Ridge. TR here: http://www.summitpost.org/trip-report/642509/The-Holly-Sawtooth.html

Climbed this peak as a stop along the way to the Thielsen trail from the PCT around Thielsen creek. Great to get a view of Thielsen before you climb it. Easy walk up, recommended addition if you are climbing or hiking in the area.

A great vantage point of the Sawtooth ridge and Mt Thielson. I did this as one of the many Obsidian club hikes back in the nineties.

Hike-a-biked and rode up this very smooth trail. Rode about a mile of it. Very cool summit with great views of Howlock, Thielsen, Bailey and to the mountains to the north. The ride down was awesome, best one i've ever had off a mountain. 1:08 up, 12 minutes, 30 seconds down. The only way to fly!

Pretty easy walkup, but was really just a bump along the way to Howlock Mountain my primary goal for the day. Great red cindery summit.

The switchbacks on this trail make the climb very easy. The view is what make the hike so great. We had a nice sunny day with no one else on the mountain. Now I have to go back to climb Mount Thielsen and Howlock Mountain.

What a nice surprise this peak was and a great day for a short trek, too. After summiting, we went south, cross country, in an attempt to get to Howlock but the four foot deep snowpack foiled our endevour.

Lost the trail under snow after less than a mile, so I just headed uphill through deep soft snow. Excellent views of the Sawtooth Ridge, Howlock, and Thielsen. A few hip deep post holes made it a bit more interesting. Lots of skeeters in the early season. Nice little peak.

Needed a view of Howlock Mtn and got an excellent one. No one else on route; one car (a Geo, so road was passable) at trailhead. Lots of hornets low; no mosquitoes anywhere.

I started this hike at about 9 in the morning. At first, on the lower portion of the mountain, there was thick fog. It really angered me because it looked like it would not go away, and the main reason why I decided to hike this was to take photos. However, about an hour later, the fog cleared up. The view of Howlock Mountain was great, but Thielsen's summit was still shrouded in clouds, unfortunately. From the summit, Miller Lake was visible to the NE, and Diamond and Lemolo Lakes to the SW. Small plumes of smoke from the 650-acre Kelsay Fire near Lemolo Lake were also visible. I had time to burn, so I went over to the false summit. On the other side of it is a sheer drop, which is very different from the rest of the gentle mountain. Overall, it was a nice trip.

Fun easy hike with my friend, Brian, as the capper to our annual weeklong trip. Nice views up top but also lots of annoying flies and bees. Descended back to the meadow for lunch.
