Ugh  Sucess!

I really don't care for the hike up to the gully, but sometimes friends who have never hiked say "What's that big mountain out in North Bend? Let's go there." Ugh. Really? Ok.

Took a party of three females up to the basin. One was content staying behind, the other two bagged the summit with me. If two women who have never hiked before can bag the summit, you know it's easy. One hand in front of the other. One foot in front of the other. Yes, people have fallen here, but really, as far as scrambling goes, this is a piece of cake. I have no idea how many times I've really been up here.

Finally Got the Haystack  Sucess!

Finally got to the true summit with my friend Jordan Halas. Scramble was no joke but the foot and handholds were there. Now the monkey is finally off my back.

Early Season  Sucess!

Great early season hike. Packed up a book, ipod, and lunch and spend over two hours on a ledge at the very top. Great day overall!

Led the State High Angle Crew

Led the WA State High Angle Crew during a fire suppression operation on the steep slopes of Mount Si in the mid 1990's. Fire fighting in a near vertical environment is always a challenge. Want to get back and do a proper trek to the top.

Many ascents  Sucess!

I've climbed to the top of the haystack 3 times now over the past few years. Its a great little scramble, but the hike itself is a bit too popular for me.

trusty Si  Sucess!

I have hiked Si so many times I have lost count. Primarily, I use it as a training hike for bigger summer summits.

Haystack is the best part  Sucess!

I've hiked this thing too many times. It's a great starter peak but after a while it gets too easy and its always busy on the weekends. Sometimes I used to put on a 40-50lbs pack and go as fast as I could just to make it a little interesting. For training I definitely recommend mailbox peak over this one. Going during the winter when their is snow makes it a little more interesting.

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.

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.
