I summited Mount Rainer several years ago via the Dissapointment Cleaver route. Me and a buddy took another trip to the cascades 2 years later in the hopes of climbing several of the major volcanoes in the early spring. We where forced off of Mount Shasta due to hurricane force winds on the summit. We then where caught in a whiteout on Mount Rainier near Camp Muir, and where forced to abandon that climb as well. I hope to return to this wonderful range soon!
Helens - awesome ski descent
Adams - super fun glissading
Shuksan via Fisher Chimneys
Black Tusk (does it count over the border??)
I am sure to have more to add to this list, but this will due for now
started with shasta in july of 2014, i have now added rainier and adams. a truly wonderful experience.
First major summit trip. Made it car-to-car in about 10 hours, and really enjoyed our time at the summit, spending a great deal of time enjoying the views. This climb really initiated my obsession with climbing/hiking.
This is a fun list to work on. Though being that the mountains stretch across a great distance be ready to do some driving as well.
Currently from this list I have summited:
Black Butte OR
Black Butte CA
I have a few down and would like to hit them all.
Damn Nick well done. You've really been going at it in the Cascades
Shasta and Adams were summited in fine weather. I was blown off Rainier at 13,600 ft. just above High Break on the DC route. Back to Rainier next June. My goal is to experience all of the Cascade volcanoes over the next years. I look forward to updating this post soon and eventually clicking on the successful button down the road.
18 July 2017
I have since summited Rainer, South Sister and Mt. Baker. I am fascinated by the unique personality of each of the peaks in this range. I look forward to getting to know them all.
Didn't go for a summit this time as the clouds rolled in quickly, but made it to the ridge. There is WAY more snow right now than there was this time last year. Deep snow extended all the way down the valley to the trail head, making the climb way harder than it was with last year's snow.
Just some hiking and backpacking. Rainier is amazing..just busy.
Baker, Rainier, Shasta, Lassen. Love ice and snow climbing! Several left to go...
I have climbed several Cascade Volcanos but have more on the must climb list. Mount Adams, Mountain Rainier and Mount Hood
The history of these mountains. The legendary climbers who've topped them. Pretty darn captivating. I've made my pilgrimages to the top of a fair number of them and hold those memories dear. What a unique part of the world!
After being blown out the year before.Returned back more determined
Ended up summiting. Then went and had some good food and cold beers
St.helens, rainier, baker, hood, Adams, beautiful area!
Clinker, Price, Garibaldi, Baker, Glacier, Rainier, Adams, Saint Helens, Hood, South Sister, Bachelor, Paulina, Black Butte (OR), Yamsay, Shasta, Black Butte (CA), Thielsen, McLoughlin
Mt. Shuksan via Sulphide Glacier; storm prevented successful Rainier summit via Emmons Glacier.
Mounts Rainier, Baker, Hood, St. Helens, Adams, Shuksan, etc...words fail to describe. Amazing climbs/hikes.
We climb and ski the volcanos as much as we can.
Mt Baker (11) - Five different routes
Mt Rainier (2) - Emmons/DC
Mt St Helens (2)
5 routes on Shasta
3 routes on Rainier
Climbed a bunch of the Cascades and still plan to climb a bunch more, so far: Mt. St. Helen's, Mt. Hood, Mt. Adams, Mt. Rainier. Awesome country some volcano climbing, will be back many times!
