A quick climb up one morning on my way to Oregon. There was a lot of snow at this time, but I didn't take an ice axe because it was just a quick hike. However, there were a few traverses where I wish I would have had an axe in hand. :>)
Did this climb as a child with my Dad.
I took my 5 year old son with me. It took us about 3 hours to reach the summit. There was no snow and it was a beautiful day. Except for the climb down. It started to rain and hail on us. We had lunch with the Happy Face.
Hiked up in the afternoon with Rachel. Got to the summit around when the sun set. It was warm while we hiked up, but cold and really windy at the summit. It was nice anyway. Had a great view of the W-face of Shastina/Mt. Shasta, which glowed orange in the fading light, the snow long gone. By the time we got down it was pitch black, but lying on the ground and looking up, we could see the stars very clearly. Great day.
