Trail Closed maybe  Sucess!

The trail is closed about halfway up because of "rockfall", if one were to continue, you might find the trail in excellent shape and find any rockfall hard to find. Someone was killed a week before! Pics, map and report at

Multiple  Sucess!

20 June 2010 - Northeast Face
Started at the road closure at the Devastated Area and proceeded up the Northeast Face. Top 2000' made for fun skiing, lots of suncups below that.

14 August 2009 - Lassen Trail
Hiked the normal trail, 1:40 round trip. Apparently it was closed since a couple people got hit by rockfall a few weeks before, one person dying. Didn't see any rocks falling that day.

Multiple offender  Sucess!

My third trip up here, last time was with my then soon to be fiancee, now wife. Guess it was sort of a 'dating interview' climb to see if she enjoyed the outdoors as much as me, she passed the test! Had fun snow skating down.

Warm up Climb  Sucess!

Summited with SPer's Forjan & Mdostby. We did this as a warm up climb for Shasta's Casaval Ridge. Beautiful day with only a few other climbers. Summited in 2 hours, hung out on the summit for about a half hour and took about an hour to get down.

North Ridge with NE Face Ski Descent  Sucess!

Awesome! Left the Crags campsite at 5:30 and started up from the Devastated Area at around 6AM. Surprisingly good snow conditions except in a few areas close to the summit. Got to the top at around 10:30 and switched to ski boots for the incredible descent back to the car. What a day! My first route as a Californian.

CHAOS Beginner Mountaineering Clinic - SE Ridge  Sucess!

Spent two nights in the snow beneath this peak teaching some members of the Cal Hiking and Outdoor Society (CHAOS) basic winter mountaineering skills from climbing and beacon searches to snow shelter construction. We topped it off with a nice snow climb of the SE Ridge of the peak.

Injured on ski descent  Sucess!

The company I worked for in Reno went out of business, so my boss and I went skiing with another co-worker. The bowl had some of the largest suncups I have ever skied. My ski got caught on the edge of a cup and twisted my knee. After removing my other ski I traversed over to the trail, where there was lady, who just happened to be a nurse. She helped me walk down the trail to the parking area, where I met my partners who carried my pack and skis down on their ski descent.

First Time Over 10,000!  Sucess!

After climibing to the top of Cinder Cone and nearly passing out from exhaustion in June of 2007 I thought I was surely going to perish on the much higher Lassen Peak Trail. My climbing partner (Nephew David) assured me that this trail was easier than Cinder Cone and that I would be just fine. As usual he was right, although I did take is easy just to make sure. When the 87 year old granny passed me I threw caution to the wind and zoomed up to the top!
