To the trail runner talking about Mailbox Peak  Sucess!

My girlfriend and I climbed Mt. Si on Sunday the 30th and we met you (trail runner talking about Mailbox Peak to a fellow hiker) at the steps just below the summit flats. You had a close fitting beanie and told me that Mailbox was a good training spot for Rainier. If you recognize yourself from the post, email me. I'd like to pick your brain on other mountaineering topics if possible.

Lost track  Sucess!

of how many times I been up this one. I call it the zoo of hiking.

Re: Lost track

Same here. Definitely is a zoo. Went up yesterday and had to deal with some college kids in sweatpants running around throwing snowballs and yelling into their cell phones. Definitely the last time I do Si for a while. Next time I do it, It'll be in a crappy weather. Could use a bit more of a challenge and a smaller crowd haha.

Too many times to count  Sucess!

Usually done as a run, often times I do repeats when training up for an ultra race. PR: 45 minutes up, 30 minutes down.

Also good off-season and great views  Sucess!

No 003, personal climber's log.

Unrelenting and frosty is how I remember this hike, I don't believe I went onto the haystack the first time (March 21, 2008) but made it to the true summit on the second attempt.

Great Time  Sucess!

I can see why they say this trail is good to use for training for Rainier. The view from the top is incredible.

Started Late  Sucess!

I started this hike very late and ended up coming down the trail by cell phone lights. Once I got to the car I realized i had 4 flashlights IN MY CAR! I've learned a lot since then.

Just to check it off the list  Sucess!

I usually avoid super crowded trails, but it was raining so I figured it would be a good day to avoid said crowds. There were still plenty of people... On the trail I saw: a guy hiking in aquasocks, a guy hiking in flip flops, a completely out of shape lady crying on the side of the trail, a couple kids blasting "I believe I can fly" with a portable music set up, shirtless guy (in 40 degree weather), plenty of people wearing cotton (it was raining) and many other interesting folks. The best part was the haystack scramble. Great class 3 scramble! even in the rain! :) Glad I went, but I probably won't be back.

Sunny and warm(ish)  Sucess!

Crowds weren't bad on the way up due to an early-enough start, insane on the way down, but, because it was sunny for the second day in a row after a stretch of positively evil weather, the masses of people were all in really good, friendly moods. Crowded but fun, and, oh, did I mention the sunny weather?!

A different perspective  Sucess!

Ascended to the summit of Si via the Teneriffe fire road, essentially coming in from the northeast. I would not recommend this route to anyone- it's a tedious, worthless road slog. The only saving grace was the amazing view of the snow covered Haystack from the north- a view most folks never see.

My first summit  Sucess!

Got an early start as the sun was coming up. Climbed with 35lbs of water bottles in my pack to condition my legs. Great view from the summit gave way to fog, wind, and clouds shortly after getting there.
