Raining trees!  Sucess!

Very easy going hike until you hit the fork in the PCT then it picks up a little. The climb right at the end was a little difficult but pretty easily negotiated by me and my brother with little climbing experience. We got rained on by the trees on most of the hike! Mostly cloudy day but beautiful views of mt Ashland and the Shasta Valley. Could not find a summit log. Up in about an hour and a half and down in just over an hour. Perfect quick hike for some beautiful views and a good little climb.

Nice scramble  Sucess!

Popped over as a recovery after completing the bike race up Mt. Ashland in the morning. Outstanding peak.

Solo trail run (and scramble) to top of Pilot Rock  Sucess!

Short trail run starting at the Pilot Rock parking area (note that climbing is closed from Feb to July 31 because of Peregrine Falcon habitat). Made it to the top of Pilot Rock. Very smoke due to the huge and numerous wildfires in California and Oregon. The climb was class 3 with one spot that required a class 4/5 move. Solid rock for the most part.

Fun but Tough Scramble...  Sucess!

...for me. Drove over from Klamath because I was scared of doing a bigger mountain in the 100 degree heat.

with my wife  Sucess!

I was successful in getting her to hike to the base of the rock, but as for the scrambling, I was on my own.

Fun  Sucess!

Scrambled up late afternoon. Lots of little lizards everywhere. Has that chockstone always been there? Seems there were two Class 3-4 places. Others there said they couldn't remember it being there. It's in there good now. Fun scramble. Very windy up top. Always wanted to do this one. Got it in on a long weekend trip.

Summit via PCT  Sucess!

I made the ascent as a side trip during my 2012 thru hike.

Ashamed  Sucess!

Lived in Ashland for nearly two years before finally making the short trip over to climb Pilot Rock. I'm ashamed it took me so long. It's a great little scramble. My wife really enjoyed it and has talked about it a lot since climbing it a few days ago.

Finally!  Sucess!

I have wanted to climb Pilot Rock for years, and finally got my chance on this beautiful spring day. Incredible views!

Icing on the cake  Sucess!

Did this after climbing McLoughlin a few hours earlier, and it was a nice, final exhausting way to spend a day. The 3rd class scramble seemed more like 4th class to me.

it caught my eye  Sucess!

after driving back and forth from norCal to Corvallis many times, we finally took the time in 2004 to explore the border area and head towards Pilot Rock. This was a fun, easy scramble with spectacular views of Siskiyou country. Nobody else around.

Standard Route  Sucess!

I went to visit my brother in Ashland and the day I left we decided to make the summit quick. There was a lot of frost and it made the rocks slick. We made the summit and had a great view of Shasta.

required for ashland residents  Sucess!

Beautiful climb with great views of Shasta. Go down to Standing Stone Brewery after (or before) the climb. Pilot Rock is their mascot!

Standard Route  Sucess!

A beautiful leg-stretcher to break a long day's drive from SF to Portland. This has to be the best "drive-by scramble" on the I-5 corridor.

NW Gully  Sucess!

Fun, easy little scramble. The road was a little rough up until the PCT. I think the drive took longer than the climb! Still worth it though. Good view.

Route Climbed - the easy one  Sucess!

We were heading down to climb Shasta and figured what the hell. 23 minutes from trailhead to top.

some 5.7 route  Sucess!

no guide (not sure if there is one) we went up a line that was 5.7 and loose.

Standard Route  Sucess!

I've been up here at least 3 times. This is a good short hike for a conditioner during the week.
