snowy  Sucess!

another one of my hacked and deleted summitlogs. With Steve Harrison in dry fluffy snow. Nice workout mountain but don't expect a solitary experience.

Mt. Si  Sucess!

Hiked this as a training hike, should have found a training hike for this one.

via Standard Trail

Couldn't climb the spire to reach the summit due to heavy snow on the rocks and cold temps. No visibility but short and sweet for Thanksgiving.

Training for Baker  Sucess!

Car to car in 5hrs - got up early and beat the heat / lot of other people to the top. Haystack scramble was fun - was able to get down before a congo line of people going up / coming down started as well. Bluebird day

First training hike of the year  Sucess!

30 pound pack. 1hr 45min up. just about the same down. Oh knees, why do I do this to you?

Another Training Summit  Sucess!

45-pound pack + new mountaineering boots, so it took much longer than expected.

Decent day, only a little precipitation toward the top. Visibility low however.

Mt Si  Sucess!

Training. Didn't do Haystack, it was getting late and I was solo

Si  Sucess!

Several times but not recently. Once in the snow.

Beautiful day  Sucess!

Hiked Mt. Si and the Haystack on an unseasonably warm, clear April day. Beautiful views all around, but certainly very crwded. The Haystack was a surprisingly fun, challenging scramble. I would never want to touch it if the rocks were wet.

Training Day  Sucess!

Have used this as a training hike multiple times and it has become a default during winter months.

Today offered high winds and great views.

Hiked in a 30-pound pack, working up to 60 pounds. Today was just over 2 hours up, 1 hour 45 minutes down. Hoping to whittle that down to a 90-minute climb by June.

Very strong winds

Left the trail head at 8am and reached Haystack Basin at around 10:15am met by snow and high winds. Attempted to summit Haystack but was turned back due to wind and ice on the scramble (with crampons). Some rain and wind on the way down but the trail was in good shape. Made it back to the car around 1:00pm.

Great Views  Sucess!

Another great place to train for higher mountains. I did this a lot with my heavy pack while training for Aconcagua. Just a note. It can be substantially colder on top than down low in the late late Fall. It can also be icy and you might want some micro-spikes for the upper part. The haystack is a fun scramble, and I did it, but being a basic hiker it made me a bit uncomfortable coming down.

Haystack  Sucess!

Haystack is a fun scramble.

Crowded summit  Sucess!

The break point before the Haystack was quite crowded, but we had the true summit all to ourselves

Thunderstorm  Sucess!

Beautiful foggy scenery on the way up, crazy thunderstorm on the way down. Very enjoyable!

Mount Si  Sucess!

Cloudy up top with no view, but still a nice hike and workout.

A nice trail on a nice day  Sucess!

I was visiting my sister in Seattle and wanted a half day hike, so this fit the bill. I was expecting crazy crowds but since it wasn't a weekend, it wasn't too bad. Perfect weather and great views. Scrambling up Haystack was fun, coming back down not so much! A good day.

Hobbit Step  Sucess!

Drought year, no snow in early March. Nice sunny day. Took a group of scouts up the Haystack, they had fun with it. Named the last little pitch to the summit the "Hobbit Step" after one of them. Support Team Sushi hiking on the trail far below, but within radio contact.
