Hot Day!  Sucess!

It was a hot day on Lassen, but at least the cool breeze helped a lot on the way down the mountain. Tons of people, so don't be surprised.

Labor Day Hike  Sucess!

First time to the Lassen Volcanic NP. Great hike on a clear day. It looks like they have been working hard on the trail.

Spring Snowboarding

Summit Closed

LVNP closed the entire mountain for the "Reach the Peak" project on all sides (they had the north side open before but they shut that down too). The trail was open to a point called "Grandview" which doesn't really live up to its name (seems like any other point on the trail) so went up to there. Rangers were watching from the parking lot (with binoculars) for violators. Saw a total of three other people on the trail.

Lots of snow still  Sucess!

Nice mostly clear day, tons of snow still for July, Less than a dozen people on the trail. Followed the standard route up and took a more direct route down with the assistance of an ice axe

power hike  Sucess!

2009, cool hike, but you must scramble to the actual summit to have any fun

Skiing

I enjoyed skiing Lassen when the parking lot at the south slopes opened up. I suppose we didn't actually summit (hence 'no success'), but climbed and skied 3 different aspects from ~100 from the summit.

My first mountaineering experience  Sucess!

Great weather and a great climb to for my first mountaineering endeavor. Tons of snow helped. Only a few rocky outcroppings close to the summit for crampons to get snagged on, but could have been avoided.

Past climb  Sucess!

Climbed ages ago, I still remember the beautiful view from the top.

Date Climbed isn't submitting properly, but I don't remember the exact date anyway. It was summer in the early 1990s.

With Nora  Sucess!

Up the trail with my future wife. I even talked her into continuing on past the end of the trail to the very 'tippy-top'. No wonder I married her.

South Face couloir  Sucess!

Snowshoed in from the SW entrance, camped at about 8400' below the south face. In the morning got an early start and headed up. Lots of rime ice. Great views of the snowcapped coast range, could even see Shasta. I really enjoy climbing this one in the winter.

Date climbed: 14-Feb-2010

Snowshoed in from the SW entrance, camped near saddle between Eagle and Lassen around 8800'. Next morning got an alpine start and headed up SW slope, pretty mellow.

Cold and windy atop summit plateau, but great rime ice formations on the pinnacle. I could see a dark cloud over Shasta off in the distance .. got lucky with the weather.

Also did the SE Ridge in March 2008. Snow-camped at 8500' near the summer trailhead (which of course was buried in snow :)
