Summer Ascent  Sucess!

Did this a few times too. Its a more scenic climb than Lassen Peak. Did it once in the same day with Lassen. Also done part of the face free solo scramble. There is a chute on the right side of the middle when you can see the face and the scree slope from the main trail. It is quite easy if you feel comfortable climbing about 20ft unopened up a vertical ledge. That is the biggest one. The others are about 5-10ft. The only other thing is be careful, if you go with a friend, not to send the loose rocks down the chute as you climb. The best thing is to stay close together. Shasta and Lassen are both visible and look great from up top. Planning to go up in winter some time and do some snowboarding. Maybe some ice/rock mixed climbing if it forms on the face would be cool.

Another PCT county highpoint  Sucess!

I slept in my camper at the visitor center parking lot, just have to pay the normal tent campsite fee. I overslept so didn't start the hike until about 9:30 am. I only saw 1 other person leave ahead of me, and there was only 1 other vehicle in the lot, but I met a man coming down, maybe he was camped at the campground and just walked to the TH. Total time was 2:52 RT, including 10 min. on top.

Great local peak  Sucess!

Climbed with SMG. A great peak with a short approach and lots of possibilities for skiing, climbing and general scrambling.

Happy New Year!

Take the kids!  Sucess!

Had a great day in the park. The trail is very well maintained and at a reasonable grade for the whole family. Great views of the region at the top.

Nice warmup hike for Lassen  Sucess!

Trail was in good condition. Took Jimbopo, Josh Lewis and I three hours, not including our quick scramble up the western subsummit for more views.

South slope  Sucess!

Relaxed snowshoeing outing. Snowcamped at 8400' the night before. Something like 14' of snow at the SW visitor center. Traversed ridge to the NW and got a nice view of the cornices.

Have done this one several other times in the winter. Not much avy hazard. One time in December 2006 the last couple hundred feet to the summit was mostly wind-scoured rime ice, glad I brought crampons.

Ski Trip  Sucess!

Good ski trip but due to lack of snow on the road further up I bailed on a plan to also ski Diller, Eagle, and Lassen. Will be back for those for sure.

Solo hike  Sucess!

Got to Lassen a day earlier than group of friends and did this solo....very enjoyable. A lot of wildfire smoke in the air gave a brownish tint to the views however. Windy at top. Enjoyed!! Photos:

Nice winter trip  Sucess!

Camped in the snow at the south entrance and climbed as practice for our first trip up Shasta later in the year. Super views and liked it in the winter so much went back and did the exact same trip in March 2004.

Right before the park closed  Sucess!

Made that left turn at the bridge and just kept on hiking. Lassen has always helped to take the mind off a girl.

Trail  Sucess!

hgrapid, same bs happened to me...hiked back down a little to get around the "guard" on Lassen, ended up on Bumpus Hell and Brokeoff anyways. Nicer hike than Lassen, with good views from the top, especially of Shasta.

Lassen closed  Sucess!

Made it all the way to the park and it turns out the trail to Lassen Peak itself was closed due to a freak rock slide killed a young child. So, we hiked Brokeoff Mountain instead. We also hiked the Bumpass Hell trail to the hot springs.
