Spring Snowboarding

Started from Devastated Area by split board. Swithced to crampons once we reached the base of the mountain. Fantastic ride down!

Summit Closed

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.

Lots of snow still  Sucess!

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

power hike  Sucess!

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.

My first mountaineering experience  Sucess!

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.

Past climb  Sucess!

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.

With Nora  Sucess!

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.

Labor day snow  Sucess!

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.

SE Ridge  Sucess!

Hiked up via the SE Ridge from the parking lot before Helen Lake. Tons of snow! Fun warm-up before Shasta.

South Face couloir  Sucess!

Snowshoed in from the SW entrance, camped at about 8400' below the south face. In the morning got an early start and headed up. Lots of rime ice. Great views of the snowcapped coast range, could even see Shasta. I really enjoy climbing this one in the winter.

Date climbed: 14-Feb-2010

Snowshoed in from the SW entrance, camped near saddle between Eagle and Lassen around 8800'. Next morning got an alpine start and headed up SW slope, pretty mellow.

Cold and windy atop summit plateau, but great rime ice formations on the pinnacle. I could see a dark cloud over Shasta off in the distance .. got lucky with the weather.

Also did the SE Ridge in March 2008. Snow-camped at 8500' near the summer trailhead (which of course was buried in snow :)

Bleh  Sucess!

Decided to climb this thing in January in snowshoes without skis which proved to be cold and snowy. I would greatly recommend going later in the season.

North side  Sucess!

Since the road is not plowed beyond the chalet on the south side, we climbed from the north. It was great fun.

Good leg stretch  Sucess!

Woke up early and headed up the main trail. Took about an hour, but not many people because it was early and mid-week.

Where did everyone come from?  Sucess!

Hiked the standard trail on a beautiful, WINDY day for great views of the area on my first visit to Mt Lassen Volcanic Park. We drove up from San Francisco so we didn't get an early start by any means (1045AM). I've read the trip reports and posts about the amount of people this mountain sees in the summer, but was still shocked. Not counting people coming down or sitting down next to the trail, I still passed between 65 and 70 people ON THE WAY UP! Considering I can't count much higher than that, I didn't count going back down, but can confirm the parking lot was nearly full.

Fortunately it was very windy at the top, so I found a few moments of solitude for the view.

A lovely day in Lassen Park  Sucess!

We climbed Lassen Peak and went down in 2 hours. We started to feel rain drops and static on the summit. We then went for a swim in Helen Lake and visited Bumpass Hell.
