Snowy climb  Sucess!

Date is a guess...climbed with no views in a blizzard!

Poor weather, perfect snow!  Sucess!

Road is still impassable about a mile below the trailhead. Headed up into some light snow, but kept going in hopes the clouds would burn off. Unfortunately, they did not but the snow was terrific for kickstepping up the Chute. Was able to enjoy some views from the top. Traversed the ridge between Ellinor and Washington but stopped when I felt it was unsafe since I was solo. Yet another great climb of Ellinor!

"Watch for goats"  Sucess!

Fun climb in the sun with friends, some glissading down. First WA peak ascent for me. Saw some goats too.

Always a nice, close climb  Sucess!

Ive climbed her many many times, its always fun. I use the winter route year around to avoid the crowds and make it more of a scramble. When the chutes full of snow I always bring my board, summit to bottom of chute in like 2 minutes :P Theres lots of trad climbing and class 4 scrambles available up here as well.

Goats & Lightning.  Sucess!

Guy I was with fed a goat some cheddar cheese - then wondered why it tried to take his whole lunch. Clouds rolled in. Figured it was time to leave the summit when my forehead felt like there were ants running around on it! :)

Cool summit  Sucess!

Opted for the chute route even though it was snow free. Lots of loose rock.

Snow Storm  Sucess!

Deep snow. Was knee-waist deep all the way up the chute. Kicked steps the whole way. White-out conditions at the top with some breaks of sun. The snow was light and fresh but this week it will pack down and aval danger will increase. Though the narrowness of the chute and the terrain features lessen avalanche risk overall quite a bit. Road was closed about 2 miles from the lower trailhead. Took 8 hours total summit from car to car.

Not Bad  Sucess!

First mountain done since moving out west, wanted to start easy before hitting the bigger ones. A fun little hike, glissade was a blast.

New Years Eve Climb  Sucess!

Great climb up winter route. Snow was deep. We were the first since last snow storm. Definitely my favorite climb

seventh time up...  Sucess!

Was going to do Mt Washington, but due to the road being snowed over I did Ellinor instead. The snow cover was really poor in the chute and it involved a serious amount of rock scrambling on ice covered rock. Crampons and ice ax required.

Too much snow!

Tried to climb this in fog, but lost the trail under 3 foot snowpack.

long time ago  Sucess!

Date is a wild guess.

Saw the then-famous arrowhead goat on that climb. Adult male mountain goat with a metal arrow shaft stuck straight thru it's skull; entry below one eye and exit out back of head below opposite ear. Obviously, after being hit with the arrow, he somehow broke off the ends so that only a few inches protruded out on either side of his head. Despite this, he looked quite healthy, relaxed, and unconcerned that he had an aluminum shaft through his brain... amazing

Short workout  Sucess!

Short approach was nice! Also cool to see the masses of non mountain people. Sweet glissade too!

2008  Sucess!

There were wet slides coming down in the basin at the top of The Chute, which was exciting to watch, if easy to stay clear of.

Nice!  Sucess!

This was the most recent of two times I have climbed this mountain. One of the better glissades I have done.

Fun gully  Sucess!

A lot of yahoos on this mountain, glissading with crampons and other idiocies. Try it on a weekday when the yahoo population is lower.

Re: Fun gully

Typical with any mountain with a short approach and a road leading to the base. Fricking yahoo's go and get hurt and it gives the rest of us a bad name, like we're reckless thrill-seekers or something.
