East Ridge  Sucess!

A little spice is nice.

Lundin  Sucess!

Personally, I thought the class 3 down climb from the false summit on loose rock was worse than the final class 4 climb on solid rock. We didn’t belay on the way up, but made two handline ‘rappels’ on the way down with a 30m, 8mm rope. We also fixed a 6mm handline to protect the descent and ascent on the false summit (60-70 feet would be adequate).

Mountaineers Intermediate Climb  Sucess!

Very nice climb led by Jan who frequently brings scones. I recently (2020) ran into him out at Erling Stahdal trail on XC skis.

West Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed with Moni - our 5th class finish to the summit (step 3) was optional.

West to East traverse  Sucess!

Approach via Cave Ridge. Then climbed the W ridge and descended the E ridge. With Fred. We felt this was lower 5th class on the 3 steep steps. Nice to be out of smoke.

Made it to the base of the west ridge. More snow on the route than I anticipated. Decided not to try it.

Scary  Sucess!

More exposed than anticipated!

Serious accident on the West Ridge

I just posted a trip report warning people about loose rock just below where you rope up to climb the West ridge. Take extra care, folks!

fun traverse  Sucess!

Great traverse from Guye and Snoqualmie-fun and dramatic ridge line, good solid rock for some 4th class climbing, on our way down the other side of the mountain, we came upon a plaque in memory of a climber instructor that died on the exact same route that we were on. How encouraging!

Lundin traverse  Sucess!

Party of four up the east ridge and down the west ridge made for a fun day using all the gear, enjoying a little exposure and learning the true nature of the word "bushwhacking"

West Ridge  Sucess!

A fun trip that took a lot longer than it should have. We were expecting the "year round stream", but of course it was dry. Fun trip for having to bush wack.

Traverse  Sucess!

Soloed up the West Ridge and down the East Ridge in half a day. A fun scramble, a couple exposed sections, but mostly easy. Rock is decent for Snoqualmie Pass. A good workout when you can't find a partner.

West Ridge 11/15/08  Sucess!

Snow is starting to stick on the north facing aspects of the ridge. This makes for some sloppy and wet climbing. The slabby step (crux) was soaking wet and covered with a thin layer of melting snow. It's always fun when easy routes get a little spicy. Other than that, the traverse from Snoqualmie is fairly easy due to the talus being mostly covered in snow. Commonwealth Creek is running very high so watch out if you take that way out.

false summit is good enough for me!

had a look at the route to the true summit and chickened out. it's a high point on a ridge, for god's sake!

East Ridge  Sucess!

With rain at Snoqualmie Pass my partner Chris and I ditched on our plans to do an overnight to climb Thomson and then ski Alaska out to Gold Ck. Instead we decided to ski Lundin. We cruised up Commonwealth Basin and stashed our skis at the col. The whole mountain was covered in snow (and clouds) which made the climbing fairly challenging, especially the exposed 4th class step. We belayed this section. After summiting, we rappelled the route and skied back down into Commonwealth Basin. Snow was better near the top, but it was all pretty wet. We brought a light rack, a 30m rope, and a few slings. Fun route to do in winter conditions.

Route Climbed: East Ridge  Sucess!

A very scary climb. Lots of exposure. The plaques on route commemorating people who had fallen from that spot are very disconcerting. Be careful on this one!

Route Climbed: West Ridge Date Climbed: August 14th, 2005  Sucess!

Took the Cave Ridge approach. Lost the boot path so we travelled cross country to get to the base of the climb. Also the stream was bone dry due to a low snow year; made for a thristy return trip. Overall good climb.

Great day for a climb, not a cloud in the sky. Lots of fun, but you have to be carefu there is a lot of exposue on this one.
