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.

Winter Ascent  Sucess!

Took the Mount Si Trail. Snow began about halfway up. Fun climbing up the Haystack!!

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.

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.
