West Face  Sucess!

Awesome views from the top - super clear day. For some reason it was hot as a mofo up there (its winter right?). Glissaded most the way down, including a little creek valley which was like a looge (sp?)

New Snow  Sucess!

Greg and I got a late start, 2pm. There was a fresh dusting of snow. The slow melt off from this made the rocks slippery. 2 hours up and 2 down.

SE ridge numerous times  Sucess!

One of my favorite quick hikes close to Seattle. Interesting trail, not many people, and awesome summit views! Always have to be careful coming down, and it's definitely a knee grinder.

Alpental Route  Sucess!

Route was totally devoid of people until the top, then all sort of people appeared as if from nowhere. Hardly surprising though, since it was a wonderful day.

Alpental - Cave Ridge  Sucess!

OSAT climb in the fall of 1993. It was a great day, and brought me to within 39 vertical feet of my first 100,000 vertical year.

Route Climbed: West Face. Date Climbed: December 21, 2004  Sucess!

Only one on the mountain today. (that I know of, could only see 100 yards most of the time). Fun climb although socked in the entire time. Hopfully i'll do it again during good weather.

Route Climbed: Normal Route (Trail) Date Climbed: 10/30/2005  Sucess!

Good exercise. Not much of a scramble. Encountered fresh, untracked snow of about 4" at 5000 ft. It made the climb fun.



Took a wrong turn at the junction and partially headed up to Guye Peak until I realized I was going the wrong way! Still, made the summit in 2 hours and 1 1/2 to get back down.



With snow at higher elevations, views across the valley of Chair, Tooth, Denny Mountain were great.

Route Climbed: trail from Alpental Date Climbed: 2005  Sucess!

Fun scramble, from 4,000' the trail thins out and the remaining 2,200 or so is pure scramble. Make sure that you're familiar with a topo, the mountain is bigger than it seems.

Route Climbed: West Face Date Climbed: May 2005  Sucess!

This hike really got me back in to the climbing mood. This was the first scramble I had attempted and it was not as bad as I was expecting. Very sunny day.

Route Climbed: East Face Date Climbed: May 30, 2005  Sucess!

My faithful companion, Quetzalcoatl, spurred us on today. About 20 cars at the Snow Lake TH at 9:00 am. We were hoping to get above the clouds. About 40' to the right of the hordes is an unmarked path heading southeast. Follow the boot beaten path across a field and then into the slide alder. It's a tunnel through vine maple. Occasional forest is reached, followed by frenzied loose dirt, with a pinch of choss. If this is too steep for you, turn back before it gets worse. From time to time, this resembles a trail. Those periods are brief. See various signs: Danger! Avalanche artillery area! Also: Cave Ridge thataway, Snow Lake thisaway, and straight ahead Snoqualmie Mt. Skirt some talus, eventually getting to a cool waterfall. More steeps, and finally the forest fades. Heather is just starting to bloom, with much Phlox. Lots of loose rubble. Please try to stay on the main path. Before you know it, we were dancing on the summit. It was blue above us, but the fog continued to limit views out. Finally it dropped long enough to peek at some peaks. Big Tahoma, Dakobed, Daniel, Hinman, and a few others above 6500'. Windy in places, but mostly sunny and warm, and there was plenty of room for a quick nap. We traversed north, came back, and then started scrambling east towards Lundin. We hit a few high points and called it good. The way down was uneventful, except for slowing down to help an old man with a bum knee. About 6 other parties on the trail today.

R/T 5 miles, 3150' gain, 1:45 up, 1:45 down

Route Climbed: West Face Date Climbed: July 24th 2005  Sucess!

In the summer, this climb proves to be harder going down than coming up. Lots of loose rubble on the switchbacks coming down required sliding down the upper areas on my rear. Very little to grab for leverage coming down. However, its a quick climb offering spectacular views. As stated elsewhere, its hard on the knees.
