Started at the lower T.H. and got into snow just above upper T.H. perfect for kicking steps and even better coming down. Great day, snow was perfect.

My first ever ascent of Mt Ellinor, started just below upper trailhead in the rain, Postholed all the way to the summit and all the way back to the timber, could not see anything past a few hundred feet, still had a great time - any time on a mountain beats sitting at home.

I've been looking at the Olympic mountains all my life, so was super excited to actually get over to them and explore. There were plenty of people on the trail. The weather and views were phenomenal. I hiked with the best partner ever, 'Cornvallis'. We did see a couple of mountain goats.

Spectacular January day, sunny and warm. Sticky snow made travel extremely slow and difficult in the chute. We would posthole to our waists without snowshoes, but with them snow would stick to the bottom with every step and we would slide down the hill! Must have been the first party for signs of anyone else being up there at all. Awesome glissade down!

Last time I post a summit log on Ellinor--promise! (It's my favorite nearby climb--especially in winter...)

Climbed after work with Rachel Wissenschaft (actually a German name I can't quite remember). Amazing evening climb and summit just as the sun was going down. Stunning cirrus clouds and a red glow on all things. Some well-earned Moose Drool at the pub on 101 in Hoodsport.

Route Climbed: Chute Date Climbed: Apr 3, 2004  Sucess!

Took my friend joel on his first climb! Parked at lower trail head. Began climbing around 4:45am and summited around 7:15. Great view! The snow was really hard on the top 3in and soft underneath, which made me a little uneasy in the chute. Passed at leat 40 people on the way down. Fun day!

Great Sunday solo summit. Drove up from Portland early in the morning, started about 8:45 am. Gloomy until about halfway through the chute. Snow was nice and hard. Decent views at the summit by 11:15. Sun had softened the snow up so the glissade down was sweet. Had a hole in the seat of my pants though so when I stood up at the bottom, I had a couple pounds of snow inside my shell pants that fell nicely down my legs and were held there by my gaiters. Back down to lower trailhead by 1:30 pm after about 45 minutes on the summit.

Most beautiful day yet on Mt. Ellinor with Eileen, Tyson, Magnus, and Ian. Late afternoon summit was absolutely incredible and the mountains, Ellinor included, much more snow-laden than I've seen them on previous climbs.

Fabulous day with Peter S., Tyson, Magnus & Ian. Awesome weather. Spectacular views of Rainier, Adams & St Helen's on the way up. Glorious summit with even more mountain views at the top. Nice, easy slog up and Glissade down. Perfect little day hike! Great SP company.

Beautiful day on Ellinor with Mac Cook & Kate Wunderbar. Tons of sun and was in a t-shirt by the time we got above tree line; could even wear a t-shirt on the summit, for a little. Reached the summit in just under 3 hrs and roundtrip in 5. Not a bad glissade!

Route Climbed: Upper Trail Head Date Climbed: February 7, 2004

Great day on Ellinor with Mark Savoca. We parked well below Lower Trail Head due to heavy snow on the road & snowshoed the road to Upper Trail Head & began our climb. Did not climb up the immediate chute as you emerge from timberline because of slab snow conditions. Headed West and around the prominent knob and then up several of the rock outcrops. Tough going up steep sections due to deep snow. Beautiful day, with intermittant sun and cloud cover. Great views of Ellinor and Mt. Washington. A summit atttempt seemed ill-advised given apparent avy conditions.

Route Climbed: Avy Chute Date Climbed: 01/24/2004  Sucess!

After getting my truck stuck for an hour, we finally got started from the lower trailhead. Got to the avy chute by 5:30pm. With headlamps, ice axes and crampons fully deployed, we topped out of the avy chute by 6:15pm. Set-up camp and woke to blue skys. Once again a great glissade all the way down the avy chute.

Great climb in beautiful autumn weather. The mountain goats didn't disappoint--first time I saw them in the U.S. (they are, after all, imports).

This was my wife's first ever summit. It's a totally fun hike, with a good possibility of seeing goats. Still waiting for that ultra clear day with a six volcano vista. About 90 minutes to the top. Maybe '04 I'll climb the snow gully.
