I tired my girlfriends out the day before with an *accidental* 20 mile hike. Had to do this one alone. ;-)

Great mountain for beginners to get a taste of altitude. Quick up down and just a mountain to keep the legs and mind in mountain mode

A nice hike and a chance to experience another one of the cascade volcanoes. While not as difficult at it's relatives to the north, Lassen is still an amazing peak with awesome geologic features in the park below and amazing views off the summit. A little on snow hiking is required near the summit but nothing technical.

Took normal trail to summit area. Climbed class 3 variation to the top. Nice peak with great views. Would have been too easy following class 1 route to the top.

My wife Katie and I hiked here on a beautiful day that yielded great views of Mount Shasta. This was a beautiful but crowded hike, and we had to share the summit with some "take the urban kids to the mountains" group that left lunch trash all over the place up there. At least the leaders took charge of cleaning up after we pointed the mess out (as the chief slobs headed down the trail).

Route Climbed: South Ridge/Face Date Climbed: June 14 2005  Sucess!

My first AT trip. Skied about half way up the S Ridge until my fledgling skills ran out of steam and then hiked the rest on soft snow. Retrieved skis, traversed across and skied down the S Face. Perfect weather. Good route to cut my teeth on.

Me, my wife and our 8 month old son made the hike up a day after hiking Brokeoff Mt. Were worried about altitude sickness with our son, but never had a problem with it. Was a very easy climb.

It was great to feel on top of the world when we reached the peak and to relive old times by hiking Lassen with my brother for the first time in years. I have done this hike several times, but always enjoy it.

Route Climbed: South Face Date Climbed: June 8th, 2005  Sucess!

What a cloudy, rainy and snowy day. Wish I could have actually seen this cool little mountain. The park is really beautiful with lots of snow, way more snow than we have had in the Oregon Cascades this year. Didn't follow the trail at all, in fact I couldn't even see it. Went straight up the moderately steep snow slope, through some loose boulder fields and finally scrambled on some really cool 3rd class rock below the summit. Nice mixed snow climb with some non-exposed scrambling. Cool summit rock features with a strange looking tower at the top. Ran and glissaded all the way back down for a round trip time of 3 hours. Lassen proved to be a worthwhile side trip on my way to Mt. Shasta.



I highly recommend you climb this peak early season on snow which is way more interesting than any tourist trail!!

Very windy and cold on the summit ridge. Fun glissade down. A family of four on their way back down the route were the only people we saw all day. Climbed with Cornvallis for his birthday.
