Long snow slog in, fun powder climbing, got to the top in a whiteout, long snow slog out.
Nice late afternoon hike with some clouds to add interest. Finished by 6:30 and headed to Manzanita Lake to camp at a very nice site.
4 hour roundtrip from the Bumpass Hell parking Lot. Hard snow up, slush ice glisading down. Nice and warm day
It was a nice day but windy and cold on the north side.
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.
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.
Skied North face.
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.
brought the wife and kids this time. All enjoyed it.
spring 02 with Jon on the way home from shasta. jumped in some nice hot springs we found. to this day, my favorite hind drylete top smells like Assen (what i nicknamed Lassen)
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.
Climbed this beautiful peak when I was a teenager with our Boy Scout Troop. Worth repeating.
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!
We took the tourist route after the short hke to Bumpass Hell. Wonderful day, stunning views to Mount Shasta.
great hike maximum payoff for effort. short but you'll still be winded at this altitude. trip report:
Took the tourist trail. I did it later in the day so there were only a few people on the trail. I wonder how many people don't go to the actual high point of this mountain?
3 times. Everybody can hike to this beautiful view.
With gas prices plunging to 3.40 a gallon here in Bend, I had to make the long drive to norcal to see what the area's all about. The mountain was a little cold and bleak; and there was a dense layer of haze from controlled burns that really limited the view. Neat summit area, if nothing else seeing the park made the trip worthwhile, and nearby brokeoff mountain is a great hike to combine with this one.
Nice hike and beautiful day.
Was at the summit at 8am before the hordes made their way up. Great views of Shasta to the north. Fun hike.
