My first summit  Sucess!

Got turned around on the way up and scrambled along the loose scree on the side for the last part.

Acclimatization Hike  Sucess!

Quick hike up the summit trail for acclimatization. Mountain was socked in, so no views.

Hood-Bachelor Double in a Day  Sucess!

Really neat rock. After climbing Mt Hood, had to drive to closest Peak, which was a couple hours away. In the Sierras you can just traverse the Crest a bit to the next peak, but in the Cascades, you've got to drive to the next peak. Whats up with that?

Neat rock, all lava, light, great traction. Made for an easy ascent. Windy on top. No one else out.

Ski ascent  Sucess!

Summit lift was closed, but who cares if you have skins. After skiing here many times, finally went all the way to the summit, but it was a little windy.

Mashed Potatoes   Sucess!

This was my first climb of a volcano. Warm weather and a late start caused snow conditions to be very soft, postholing up to my calves with every step. Views from the top were beautiful as we could see north all the way to Mt. Adams.

Splitting Corn  Sucess!

Quick splitboard ascent/descent one day after they quit spinning the lifts. Visibility sucked, but the corn was plentiful.

Snowshoe to the top  Sucess!

Sunrise Lodge was closed so I parked nearby and snowshoed straight up under the Sunrise Lift. At the top of the Lift (where you can see Summit Lift just to your right), a ski patroller directed me to the "climbers trail" to the left which heads above the Rainbow Lift, switchbacks a couple of times, and then heads uphill pretty much under Summit Lift. Mt Bachelor is usually closed to uphill traffic when the ski resort is open, but with this blessing, I finished snowshoeing up. 2 hrs 45 mins to the tip top. I snowshoed back down and didn't keep track of time (less than 1.5 hrs?). Great views, great day, great workout.

Northeast Slope  Sucess!

Straight up the snow-covered hill, following Marshmellow Run and Summit chair, mostly on snow with only a few patches of earth.
Went in with Mike, a boarder and regular on the hill. On top, met Bill of Cascades Mountaineers, his son, and Danny, track star at Boise State.

Nice hike  Sucess!

The ski resort was closed so I parked across the road at the ski park and then hiked up the Mt. Bachelor Trail. It is a really nice trail until it gets near the top of the ski lift and then is a little rockier. 2 hr. 35 min. car to car. This was my second summit today, after doing South Sister in the morning.

Plan C  Sucess!

After bailing on some other plans (North Sister being Plan A) we finally settled for a simple trip up Bachelor. Friend with skins and me on slowshoes. Left parking lot at 5:05, summited at 7:20. I snowboarded down, my friend telemarked. Great sunny day!
