Route Climbed: South Slope Date Climbed: May 11, 2001  Sucess!

This was an extremely fun acclimatization warmup for Mt. Shasta the following day. The road had just opened the day before and there were only a few cars in the parking lot all day. I had much fun scrambling about on the rocks and snowshoeing around the crater rim.

Route Climbed: South Side Date Climbed: June 25, 2000  Sucess!

By this time of year, the road was plowed and there was very little snow remaining on the trail. The snow had already started breaking up on the Northeast Face, however, there were still some decent runs on the South Face. This was my first time up this volcano and unfortunately I didn't bring my skis. On the way up I ran into a guy hiking up in flip-flop sandals, t-shirt, and shorts, with his snowboard and boots. I got to see him ride down the South Face using his sandals as "gloves" as well as a skier who was stuck out on the slope. Since this guy wasn't moving, a ranger had to go up to meet him - not sure what happened there. It was a gorgeous day and I highly recommend going when there's still snow.
