Re: Mt. Adams - Parking

Thank you all. And Karl, yes -- we calculated about an hour to get to the TH from Trout Lake. Getting up absurdly early to hike is sort of my M.O. -- I typically don't sleep much the night before anyway, despite my best efforts. We won't likely hit the trail head quite as early as you and Peder did,...

Mt. Adams - Parking

We will be hiking up Mt. Adams on Saturday, August 23, 2014. Our plan is to stay in Trout Lake the night before and drive up to Cold Springs Campground before dawn to begin our hike, rather than camping there the night before. SummitPost suggests that we "Start at the Cold Springs Campground (5,600'...

Needed: MSH permits for August 21st -- No love on Purmit.com

All, I am in search of 2 climbing permits for Mount Saint Helens for Thursday, August 21st. I listed my own "permits wanted" post on purmit.com several months ago and I have been combing the purmit.com page daily, but so far no love -- there seem to be a lot of permits changing hands for pretty much...

Re: Trail hike recommendation for mid-August?

Miraculously, I managed to secure a permit for Mt. St. Helens for my planned August 17th hike date, so that's the plan! MSH was always the top of my list -- just seemingly out of reach due to permit difficulties. Some questions regarding MSH: 1. Is there any reason to do any route other than the sta...

Re: Trail hike recommendation for mid-August?

Haha, I think I can summarize all of this as "better safe than sorry" and I will pack my axe and crampons!

Re: Trail hike recommendation for mid-August?

Well, if you just want to get up high, it's a great time of year to summit Mount Adams ! More spectacular photos, and an increasing dilemma for me in choosing a hike for my *one* day in Oregon! Decisions, decisions... I read in the thread that you used microspikes and Peder went with crampons. Can ...

Re: Mt Hood Paradise Park from Ramona falls (KaraokeMouse) 7

Great video, Mars! I have been tinkering with my wife's Hero2 to get the best combination of first person and third person shots. We have seelted on using a Peak Design camera catch for the first person shots (alternating with a helmet mount on sketchier hikes) and that is working pretty well. What...
