Southeast Ridge, Starting at Kohm Yah-mah-nee  Sucess!

With the park road closed, I hoofed it up the asphalt as far as the plows had made it so far, then mounted snow shoes to the ridge proper, and finally crampons to the summit. Varying snow conditions all along the route. Saw the tracks of the other two folks who posted their trips earlier this year along with various ski tracks from other hearty souls.

Snowshoing in April  Sucess!

2-Day trip with an overnight camp at lake Helen, took the summer trail to the summit.
For somebody who wants to go soon:
Road to the trailhead is only partially cleared (about half of it, but you can check on the park's website). Also snow started to melt after 10am on our decent so consider an early start.

Lassen Peak  Sucess!

Easy in the summer, a great place for kids beginning to climb.

4x  Sucess!

First climbed in August 2002 via the trail.

In May 2004 we were there when the road was plowed to the trailhead, but not all the way through. NPS allows camping in the crater in the winter, defined as when the road isn't fully opened, so spent a VERY windy but memorable night up top.

Again in May 2012 from the Devastated Area before the road opened up. Easy and steep climb to the top, with the boot track I didn't even need to bother with crampons. The glissade down resulted in a few tons on wet slides taking me for a ride... good time!

And again in winter 2013 (February) as part of an overnight trip covering the ridge from Lassen to Brokeoff (almost). Stopped just short of Brokeoff at the last bump as the route up the steep side of Brokeoff did not look very appealing.

Via Lassen Peak Trail  Sucess!

Last acclimatization hike before climbing Shasta. Short but hearty trail. Clearing storm only allowed for views to the east - still fabulous. Explored the crater a bit before going down. Win!

Main Trail  Sucess!

Climbed a few times. It takes me about 1:20 or so to do. Don it and Brokoff in the same day. one year I explored a bunch of the cracks and holes in the crater. There was almost no snow at the time.

1st to summit Labor Day weekend   Sucess!

After hiking up Mt. Ingalls in the morning, I rode my motorcycle back up to Lassen NP to hike up Lassen Peak. I had wanted to be there at 4:30 pm because that is when I had seen the work crew finishing on Tuesday, but didn't get there until almost 5. The crew was still in the parking lot and told me that the trail was open and I had the mountain all to myself. It was cool and windy on top but the air was clear, smokey down in the valleys. I still had to ride 2 hours back to my camper at Quincy, and knew it would be cold so I didn't waste any time. Took a few pictures on top, ate some snacks and then headed back down.

Total time 2:12, 1:05 up, 48 min. down.

Trail Open  Sucess!

Still had snow patches, but able to do it without yak traks or snowshoes. Poles help with the slippery parts. We made it to the top right before the clouds rolled in.

Trail  Sucess!

Hiked the peak on one of the few open days during the "Reach the Peak" project. Very nice early morning hike. Only saw a few people. Hiked Brokeoff afterwards.

fun hike  Sucess!

had a fun hike to the summit with Amy, Andy, and Beth. This was my 5th time to the summit (trail in 1991 & 2001, NW ridge 2008, East ridge 2010). A busy day, as the 'Reach the Peak' project temporarily has the mountain closed most for most of the season.

A very scenic climb in good conditions. Beautiful views of Shasta. Don't do this route unless snow covered!

Lassen  Sucess!

Three day excursion with Ezra Danciu and George Sakaldasis. Awesome full moons camped beside Lake Helen. Deep snow at higher elevations. Got sick on the summit but slowly but sure descended to camp with no problems.
