Route Climbed: Lassen Peak Trail  Sucess!

Great day for a climb. My 4th time up but the 1st in about 12 years. Still had some snow on parts of the trail. But not enough to worry about. Great views of the park. Shasta was kinda hazy but the central valley looked like a smog bowl. While Lassen is not the the biggest peak in the Cascades, I had forgotten just how big this mountain is.

Skiing in July  Sucess!

Wow. Skied some very impressive sun cups and runnels from the top to the bottom. South East face snow was hammered but one can't complain when skiing in July. Beats walking.

Southest Route  Sucess!

Wanted to hit the top of this one after I saw it from Shasta a few years back. Very easy hike and enough snow for a little glissade action.

Hiked the main trail  Sucess!

Hiked it also in 2001. It was crowded in 2001, but that's to be expected. I loved the wildflowers in the area.

Route Climbed: standard route. Date Climbed: july 8th 2005.  Sucess!

Mt lassen was the very first snow peak I ever climbed and twenty years later i am back. It was a heavy snow year in northern california. I began my adventure by scrambling along the ridgeline between Mt diller and the eagles nest. I was gazing up at lassen admiring her beauty. The park still caught in a snowy inbrace. As the sun went down I anticipated my hike up the mountain in the morning. I set out at six in the morning with just my walking sticks. I was just treating this like a hike. I found out rather quickly that at this time of the morning lest I forget, the snow is still frozen. I wasn't going to turn around It's just a hike. It was pretty slick going but not that steep. the sun Had melted out large sections of trail about midway up the mountain . Towards the summit area the trail begins a traverse out onto the sloping scree field. It was here that my ice ax would have been handy but nooo this was just a hike. I enjoyed a scramble up a 3rd class variation to the summit. The dacite plug of the summit pinnacle is nice and solid. I found a spot out of the wind and enjoyed the views and some lunch .

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
