Shasta on Saturday, Eddy on Sunday, Lassen on Monday. Three great places to view everywhere from. However, as Bob mentioned, it is not a lonely trail. Tons of people showed up and overpopulated the summit. If they'd put a McD's up there, they'd make some big bucks. Still, nice to get the highpoint of Shasta county with fellow summitposter Bob Bolton.

Dean Molen and I did Lassen as the last summit of our Northern California trip, which also included Shasta and Eddy. Nice day, and the hordes were amazing, although expected.

All I can say is that I've never seen that many people on a trail. It was not suprising how many idiots were up there - hiking off trail, throwing rocks at the chipmunks, just dropping trash where-ever. Its sad because it is a nice little hike.

Route Climbed: Trail/SE Face Date Climbed: June 12, 2004  Sucess!

Decided to hit Lassen as a warmup for Shasta. Started up the trail then put on the crampons and headed up the bowl on the SE side. Snow was perfect for crampons and for glissading. Had a fantastic glissade down the bowl then cut around to the South side for one more glissade almost to the parking lot. What a blast! There were quite a few boarders and skiers having fun as well. Weather was awesome.

Hiked the majority of the way up the trail. Lots of new June snow on the peak from the last few days (see entry below). Actually used crampons for the first mile or so, made things much easier. Very windy and cold on the summit ridge. Climbed the last little 3rd class route to the summit, fun with lots of snow and ice on the rocks. Got in some fun glissading on the south face. Nice park, no crowds, only a few others on the peak all day.

Breath-taking, challenging trip, ascended the North Side, descended the South Side, in a blizzard, (not recommended)

Route Climbed: South Face Date Climbed: May 29, 2004  Sucess!

A warm up climb for Mt Shasta's Casaval Ridge the next day. There were 10 foot walls of snow at the parking lot. Lake Helen was still with thin ice. I left the parking lot at 11:00am. En route (at about 9700'), I climbed the prominent rocks to the climber's right of the south side short couloir. From Bob Burd's website, he mentions this to be class 3 rock, 200 ft high. I must have gotten off route because the route I took (about 300 yards to the right of the couloir) felt like class 4, even a few low 5th moves. It took me some time to climb this section. Once out of it, the summit was not far. I reached the summit at 12:30pm. It was very windy up there and I didn't stay long. I got back at the parking lot at 1:40pm. Changed the sweaty clothes for dry clothes and drove out there at 2:00pm, heading to Mt. Shasta.

Start early till the snow is still firm! Sleeping at Lake Helen was great - views were awesome. And glissade down Lassen was fun...

Failed to reach the top due to unfair amount so of snow and high probability of avalanche.

Route Climbed: North Ridge (our own variation) Date Climbed: March 13th, 2004  Sucess!

Great climb! Hiked up to the end of the Chaos Crags the first night. Climbed the peak saturday via a slighlty different route than the planned north ridge. Steep snow, wild terrain! The summit bowl was great too, although I could have done without the giant metal dildo on the higher south summit.

We blasted past crowds on the trail to reach the summit crater. Mt Shasta, which we had summited 2 days earlier was clearly visible above dense wildfire smoke. We explore the summit a bit before heading down.

Easy morning day-hike to the summit. Warm-up to Shasta which we climbed a few days later.

A fine day in Lassen Park. Watched a glider pilot launch off the top. This whole area is a day hiking paradise.
