Cranked it up the hill  Sucess!

Switchback City for 2,000 feet of climb. Not super easy for the cataclysmically out of shape. Not that that stopped the tourist crowd (and I include myself) easy if you are in shape and really hard if you're out. This was my wife's first 3000m Peak and it was grand to have the Mount Everest moment with her.

Note; a snow cone stand on top would be a gold mine and a stunningly good idea. I'll write the Donald and see if we can get that in place.

From SW Park Entrance on snowshoes  Sucess!

The easiest way to the summit in winter. About 12 hours RT. You will need aggressive snowshoes like the MSR Lightning Ascents.

Climb/Ski  Sucess!

Tough in approach shoes on frozen snow lower section but blazed the cinder trail and scrambled to summit, then skied SE face. Good stuff although short day.

Southeast Ridge, Winter  Sucess!

Starting at Kohm Yah-Mah-nee, walked the road as far as it was plowed, then on to snowshoes up to the ridge proper, and into crampons to the top. Not another soul seen all day once past the road construction by Sulfur Works. Returned to the car after dark, enjoying a moonlit road down.

Interesting trail  Sucess!

My son and I decided to give the peak trail a shot during our backpacking trip to Lassen. We had a good time and met some characters along the way. I think our favorite was the guy wearing flip-flops and a homemade tin foil hat.

Nice day hike  Sucess!

Hiked it with a group of high school friends. Carried my 1-year old most of the way. Learned not to jog/run at 10,000ft (major headache)!

A nice Hike  Sucess!

It was a nice easy hike, although this was by far the most crowded trail I have ever hiked in all of my mountaineering. So when it's open, expect there to be tons of people going up and down.

Administrative fail on this route. Who the hell closes down an entire mountain for a month for trail work? Oh, the NPS does :)

Re: 2010

I know how you feel on this. The day after I climbed the trail, it was closed. We thought about using the trailhead for another peak near by but was worried we would be accused of climbing Lassen while trail work was in action.

Great Hike  Sucess!

Well maintained trail, nice short scramble at the summit.

March 2008  Sucess!

Snowshoed in from the SW entrance, snowcamped around 8500' the night before. Pretty good snow good coverage up high, but some thin spots due to a drought year and wind scouring. Cold and windy at the top.

Next time I'll go in dead winter  Sucess!

Have done this one numerous times throughout my life, always in the summer before I started climbing.

My first major ascent!  Sucess!

I was a young lad when my father took me up this mountain. I think somewhere between age 7 and 9...which would have been 1982-1984. I'll have to update this when I get a picture and the year from him!

CHAOS Beginner Mountaineering Clinic  Sucess!

Spent two nights in the snow beneath this peak teaching some members of the Cal Hiking and Outdoor Society (CHAOS) basic winter mountaineering skills from climbing and beacon searches to snow shelter construction. We topped it off with a nice snow climb of the peak.
