Ascent Trip Report9/8/02 With Miles. Hiked in Saturday in a snowstorm. Bivied at about 7500 feet and enjoyed a clear, moonless but cold night. Started climbing about 6:30 am, had to stop at the edge of the glacier to melt water for the climb. Once we reached Pikers Peak a storm blew in but we continued on while some others turned back. Reached the summit about 1 pm but no views so just some pictures next to the completely melted out hut. Met a guy up top who had just climbed the north side.
Got off trail on the descent but once under the clouds we could see the Lunch Counter and it was a long hike out from there. Great day.
7/11/15 Solo climb from Cold Springs started at 5:30. Another lenticular came down and settled at about 9500 feet on up so no views at the summit at 11:50 am. 15 minutes up top with apparently the rest of Portland and Seattle who all decided to climb today, then down by 3:45 pm. Back in time for dinner with pizza in Portland.
