...for me. Drove over from Klamath because I was scared of doing a bigger mountain in the 100 degree heat.
I was successful in getting her to hike to the base of the rock, but as for the scrambling, I was on my own.
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.
Climb during PCT hiking. Nice scramble.
I made the ascent as a side trip during my 2012 thru hike.
Friend in Ashland took my girlfriend and I to climb it. What a great little trip!
I have wanted to climb Pilot Rock for years, and finally got my chance on this beautiful spring day. Incredible views!
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.
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.
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.
Beautiful climb with great views of Shasta. Go down to Standing Stone Brewery after (or before) the climb. Pilot Rock is their mascot!
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.
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.
We were heading down to climb Shasta and figured what the hell. 23 minutes from trailhead to top.
no guide (not sure if there is one) we went up a line that was 5.7 and loose.
I've been up here at least 3 times. This is a good short hike for a conditioner during the week.
Mark and I took my Mom up Pilot Rock for her first ever rock scrambling experience. Living in Ashland, she has admired Pilot Rock for years and was quite pleased with herself for making it to the top. A nice little outing.
Liked everything about this one; short, steep, fun scramble, great views. Two short steps on the route(4th class, but very little exposure) that might present a problem for those not comfortable scrambling. Had the rock to myself for lunch on a sunny, but very windy day. Hiked up to the near by Soda Mtn. look out after for even better views of the area.
30 minutes from car to summit. Nice day; lots of company on Father's Day.
I've wondered about this one for years since I first saw it on a drive down to S. Cal to visit newly opened Disneyland in the summer of '56. For years I've visited the area and finally had to go see what was up there.
