With Lassen Peak still closed and nothing else of any height around Shasta decided to combo this with Eagle Peak. Very easy, not sure we got a lot of acclimation benefits though. Trip report is HERE.
back from Loomis Peak early summer 2005. Again Sept 15 '13 after an attempt on Vulcans Castle.
I love the name of this fine peak! A winter greeting in the Alps. Health and happiness, good skiing to everyone. I don't know how many folks have skied from the top here but the mountain's gentle, rolling top side is very relaxing. My route up was not relaxing, leaving the car at a turnout at Emerald Lake, making my way through snow around the lake to the south slope of the peak I marched straight up. Now and then I'd cross faint use trails that zigged und zagged, but straight up was very productive. The views: Phenomenal.
Part of a two day trip coving the ridge from Lassen to just short of Brokeoff. Fun trip with great views.
Continued to Diller. Best weather of the week-long Cascades trip that became a Yosemite trip. With Bob, Laura, Adam, and Kevin.
Easy mountain but definitely worthwhile!!
This was an easy peak to climb, plus afterwards we got to climb Eagle Peak.
