An easy hike with great summit views. Loved the park and will definitely return. Saw one guy who carried his kid all the way to the summit. If only I could find someone to do that...

Route Climbed: Mt. Lassen trail (standard route) Date Climbed: 5 ascents total.........July 18, 1992......July 29, 1995......September 2, 2001.......May 26, 2002........June 19, 2003  Sucess!

I know Mt. Lassen is considered nontechnical and doesn't come close to stacking up to peaks like Shasta or Rainier, but it's a fun trip anyway. I try to do a climb of Lassen at least once a year. It is such a great mountain in a magnificent national park. One incredible view north to Shasta and out to the Sacramento Valley from the top. I never get tired of it.

Lassen was a frequent stomping ground while attending Chico State. Always enjoy the summit views.

We decided to stop here and hike Lassen on our way to Olympic National Park. I'm glad we took the time and did it.

No cars in parking lot at 0700. 50 people on summit an hour later. Heck, I dunno.

Up the crowded trail on a sunny afternoon. On top I met a nice gentelman from San Diego (Ron), whose wife chose to wait at the trailhead as did mine.

Exploring the capped crater is as much fun as getting to the summit

Hiked with the family on what is becoming an annual event. This time we could see Shasta! I love California air quality.

What is arguably the easiest big Cascade peak to summit was a really trying time for me. Coming off a badly sprained ankle, I did this hike with my friend, Brian, for the first of this years' annual hiking trip. I suffered through the climb and was really in pain with a re-swollen ankle at the top. Coming down was twice as worse and long. What should have been about a 2 hour round trip turned into 6 for me as an 80 year old woman called Granny passed by me as well as young children. Oh yeah, I did this one in style! Then, afterwards, all the campgrounds were full so we ended up sleeping in the car at a rest stop somewhere east of Susanville on our way to Yosemite. Moral to the story, let your injuries heal!

Having 2 weeks in Sacramento, headed up to Lassen on the weekend. Had some fresh snow and hale up there. The great peak and my first meting with the volcanoes. The whole area is very beatiful and it must a great place to go in winter.

I started up the trail after 7 p.m. and reached the summit just as it got completely dark. Neat views of lightning flickering in a thunderstorm about 30 miles to the east as the horizon darkened. Hiked down by headlamp.

Route Climbed: cross country from visitor's centre Date Climbed: 11 March, 2001  Sucess!

My first winter ascent of a 'real' mountain, and first 'mountaineering (i.e. crampons and ice axe)' ascent as well. Started with a FULL pack down at the S visitor's center, totally out of energy and really cold by the time I had snowshoed all the way to Lake Helen to set up my tent. The next day was beautiful, though, with nice firm snow and virtually no clouds in the sky (just COLD & really windy towards and on the actual summit). Hooked up with some guy (nice as I recall) who verified my self-arrest ability & made sure I didn't put on my crampons backwards. Able to glissade down too, which was fun! Great trip, and great climb!

Hiked up with Rachel in the early afternoon. We encountered 2 other groups, I think. Cool view from up top (not 1/2 as nice as in the winter, though!), but freezing-assed cold (literally, and with the wind [it was probably going 40-50 mph]-chill it was even colder).
