Climbed route a couple of times (2000's)... once starting with the standard pitch 1 (climbers left), and a 2nd time starting with Direct pitch 1. The Direct (to the right of standard) takes you right to start of pitch 3, bypassing the traverse (pitch 2). After exiting above pitch 4 have climbed the ridge to climber's right, and 2nd time for more fun work straight up and to the left after pitch 4 (a couple of short pitches).
Carried the kid up there and had great views
Didn't realize I'd gone off trail and ended up scrambling the face of this cool chunk of rock ... appreciated a breakup of the monotony on trail with this : )
Hiked up in the rain with my sister.
Not sure of the date - sometime in early '97.
I've "climbed" Beacon Rock more times than I can count. Always a great view and a good workout.
More of a walk than a hike. Really cool though!
Hiked Beacon rock with a couple friends in August 2007 including one who was 79 years old. Great hike and great views.
Nice relaxing walk. It is very impressive how they cut the trail into the rock.Good views on the way up but the actual summit did not have the views that most of the hike did. Still fun and a good hike to do in between showers.
Nice easy hike to start off the day.We only spent 2 minutes on the top due to showers incoming. Nice trail.
Nice add-on hike during a southern Washington road trip.
Last two peaklets with Heather on our way home from California.
Climbed Cruisin' (5.8) and Little Wing (5.8) in some beautiful weather! Nice views of the Gorge.
Unsure of first time. Been up a number of times, starting in pre-school on the path.
Also walked up on the way home Fourth of July weekend from pulling an all nighter while climbing Hood.
I walked up the man-made path today. The engineers used pipe railing, small i beams, cement, and pressure treated wooden planks to build this route. Beatiful views, but a strong east wind today.
fun climb with jay jay. went up the wrong route initially; some 5.9ish bolted climb to the right of the se face. se face easy, albeit fun, afterwards.
...via the hikers trail, fun one with the toddler in a backpack!
climbed the first 2 pitches of the busy SE face with my friend Nate, then had to rap and run to the top in order to catch a flight
