37 peaks in 19 days  Sucess!

There was bad weather for weeks in WA so Heather and I drove through OR, CA, NV, UT, and ID. We climbed 37 peaks in 19 days. We hiked Lassen and adjacent Eagle Peak on our 3rd day. It was a very short hike. trip report

Lassen Winter Summit  Sucess!

Cold mild day on Lassen, roads nearly closed for snow, and empty. Climbed quickly to a fogged in summit. Little ice and hoarfrost on trees. Other than that, a simple trail to summit. Would be a good ski descent.

Cold July day  Sucess!

It was very cold and windy, 52 at the TH yet dozens of parties were on this peak on this Saturday in July, some in shorts. The trail still has several well worn snow crossings, no gear required. The top 750 feet was engulfed in clouds, with only infrequent glimpses through small breaks. Made the side trip to the Wilderness HP before heading down. Thankfully we were mostly protected from the strong wind while circling the rim over to the HP. Visited Brokeoff later in the afternoon, which had no clouds and much lighter winds. RT for Lassen was around 3 hrs, with 45 minutes of that dedicated to the side trip to the Wilderness HP. Full TR is HERE

Sunrise Hike  Sucess!

A very enjoyable hike, and did not encounter anyone until the descent. The first person I encountered was from Arlington. Small world!

Climb/Ski  Sucess!

Always good when you can ski in June! Kickstepped in approach shoes on lower half and waltzed up cinder and scrambled to summit while everyone else in boots schlepped. Skied SE face, short but good.

Shasta warm up. Easy!  Sucess!

Spent a few hours in the morning hiking Brokeoff, hiked Bumpass Hell with my family midday, and then spent a little under a couple hours hiking the easy, revamped Lassen Peak trail.  The park was incredibly busy for Labor Day weekend with full parking lots in most places and cars lining both sides of the road for nearly a mile in the Bumpass Hell area.
Many late afternoon hikers were on Lassen, which was a breeze with consistently easy and smooth switchbacks.
After being up there so many times in summer, I need to try a winter/spring snow climb there.

Climbing NE Face in May  Sucess!

Climbed the North-East face with a party of 3 in early May.

Parked in the devastated area. Started around 6am. Was teaching a friend how to self-arrest and so we ended up taking 8-10 hours to reach the summit and back. Should take <6 hours. The true summit is on the right. We ended up realizing that mid-way through our climb and tried traversing. Probably a better idea to traverse from the top if needed. The last part of the climb is steep. Going from the right is easier.

Surprizing  Sucess!

Fun little hike on the way home from climbing Mount Whitney. I didn't think much of this one until I entered the National Park and was blown away. It a beautiful place. Easy hike up. 2.5 hours RT.

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

Brought my buddy Donatas. His first mountaineering trip. hiked up the road from the visitor center, carrying snowshoes in hand due to hard pack snow. snowshoed the rest of the way to the summer trailhead. stashed snowshoes and extra stuff in the trees. crampons and axes up the southeast ridge. Perfect weather and conditions. Crystal clear and 360 degree views. long glissades back down and then a long trudge back to the car at the visitor center. 16 miles round trip.
