Trail  Sucess!

An awesome hike/scramble. Beautiful day, mild temps. No bugs!Left the TH at 8:35 and summited in 3:15 with a nice easy pace. Stayed there for about 30 minutes then headed down. Good thing I had marked waypoints on the GPS as I got too far south on the way down, then had to find a good spot to traverse over to the official trail. Even with that got down in 2:15. A super awesome hike, recommended with enthusiam.

Mt McLoughlin  Sucess!

If I can only climb one Mountain from now on, it would be McLoughlin. The view extends from The Sister (Eugene) all the way down to Lassen (Reading). This years view was the best I have ever seen. Bottom of Shasta whited out, but top appeared to be floating above the Earth. The old look out shelter getting less and less every year. 1999, 2000, (back and knee injuries washed out 2001-03) 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008. Every year getting harder, but more rewarding. Most bang for your buck. Well over ten major peaks in view this year!!!

Best Camping Around

for small tents there are some fantastic spots about halfway up the blocky, bouldery ridge with a full view of Fish Lake, HWY 140 and the Klamath Basin. Dry, we brought 4 quarts each and had to melt snow on the way up. There is a small canal about .35 miles from te parking lot-great for foot soaking after the descent. Cabin remains on summit are flat and great picnic spot.

summit trail... sort of  Sucess!

followed the summit trail as best as we could. too much snow to really follow it well after about 7,000 ft. unfortunately not enough snow to really use snowshoes... I did, but trashed them on the rocks pretty well. needed them towards the top where it was snowy and icy. crap conditions.

First Snow...  Sucess!

Drove down from Portland the day before. I heard about the expected low temps in the low 20s so I stayed in Medford for the night. Left the trailhead at 8:00am the next morning. It was 23 deg. & clear skies. A dusting of snow at the trailhead to several inches near the summit. The summit didn't have much accumulation but did have some wind blown rime coating the summit blocks. 5-Hour round trip including 30-min at the summit. Long drive from Portland for this climb only...next time (weather permitting) I'll plan a couple of other peaks in the area.

Trail  Sucess!

A fun hike with great views. Lot of people on the trail, but then it was Labor Day. Perfect weather.

Southern Snow Slope  Sucess!

The day after Shasta, I climbed McLoughlin starting on the trail and quickly moving to the snow slope on the left of the route. It must have been a good snow year b/c this year, there wasn't any. Not a bad view for such a quick and easy climb.

hazy day  Sucess!

Lots of haze in the air from forest fires, but was still able to make out all 3 sisters and had a great view of shasta. Bouldering up the left hand side of the SE ridge was fun.

Up the East Ridge  Sucess!

Peak 2 of the 4 day trip. Started overcast but soon turned to brilliant sunshine. First one to the summit but was soon followed by three others and two more were headed up as we were returning. A busy peak.

Winter Trip

McLoughlin may be fairly easy in the summer, but it is another mountain in the winter. We snowshoed into one of the little lakes and stayed the night on the snow. We didn't quite make it to the top the next day because it started raining, but it was still quite the experience.

Perfect day on the standard route  Sucess!

Lovely hike up the trail as "dessert" after Shasta 2 days previously.

Great views from the ridge to the summit but there are a lot of trees to get through before you get there. The views only appear in the last 350 metres of a 1,200 metre climb.

Clouds of butterflies, sun, no wind and 360° views from the summit to accompany lunch and a nap. Shasta to the south. Diamond, Thielson and S Sister to the north all in view.

4.25 Hours up and 3.5 down as we almost ran the last 3 km to keep ahead of the clouds of mozzies that were biting even through 2 layers of DEET. The only negative in an otherwise perfect day.

East Ridge  Sucess!

Fun in early season with snow. Started at PCT from highway for bonus coverage. "Rescued" some compass-less SOU students who got a little lost in the trees on the descent.

the usual trail  Sucess!

Fun hike. There were quiet a few bees on the summit, they were going after me and my peanut butter and jelly. Other than that, it was a great climb.

Clouds of Mosquitos  Sucess!

This must be what Alaska is like. Literally Clouds of Mosquitos, from the car all the way to timberline. Nice mountain, though. Sultry day. The heavens opened up on the way down and helped clean off the DEET. But lots of thunder and lightning.
