South Bowl/North Ridge
Three day excursion with Ezra Danciu and George Sakaldasis. Awesome full moons camped beside Lake Helen. Deep snow at higher elevations. Got sick on the summit but slowly but sure descended to camp with no problems.
Carried my downhill resort skis up and enjoyed the suncupson the descent. Nice short hike. Nice view.
It was a hot day on Lassen, but at least the cool breeze helped a lot on the way down the mountain. Tons of people, so don't be surprised.
It was very physically and emotionally hard but thanks to my husband EastKing and friends Jimbopo and Josh Lewis, I did it!!
Did the summit with BearQueen, Jimbopo, and Josh Lewis. For BearQueen it was first first 5K ever, first volcano, and first 10K peak.
First time to the Lassen Volcanic NP. Great hike on a clear day. It looks like they have been working hard on the trail.
With Ashley via the trail. What a zoo.
Started from Devastated Area by split board. Swithced to crampons once we reached the base of the mountain. Fantastic ride down!
LVNP closed the entire mountain for the "Reach the Peak" project on all sides (they had the north side open before but they shut that down too). The trail was open to a point called "Grandview" which doesn't really live up to its name (seems like any other point on the trail) so went up to there. Rangers were watching from the parking lot (with binoculars) for violators. Saw a total of three other people on the trail.
Nice mostly clear day, tons of snow still for July, Less than a dozen people on the trail. Followed the standard route up and took a more direct route down with the assistance of an ice axe
2009, cool hike, but you must scramble to the actual summit to have any fun
I enjoyed skiing Lassen when the parking lot at the south slopes opened up. I suppose we didn't actually summit (hence 'no success'), but climbed and skied 3 different aspects from ~100 from the summit.
Climbed in spring conditions (warm but still a lot of snow).
Great weather and a great climb to for my first mountaineering endeavor. Tons of snow helped. Only a few rocky outcroppings close to the summit for crampons to get snagged on, but could have been avoided.
Climbed ages ago, I still remember the beautiful view from the top.
Date Climbed isn't submitting properly, but I don't remember the exact date anyway. It was summer in the early 1990s.
not a beginner, but tripped with beginners. got dehydrated from more liquor than water like a beginner the evening b4 summit day. still summited and tagged the Lassen Penis.
Up the trail with my future wife. I even talked her into continuing on past the end of the trail to the very 'tippy-top'. No wonder I married her.
Did this on Labor Day 2005, first stop on a big tour of NorCal. Knee deep snow on the summit. Nice hike in those conditions.
