  1. Climb St. Helens in November

    I'm thinking about going up St. Helens this Wednesday, looks like a nice day. Has anyone climbed up it in early November and know what kind of snow I may run into? Just wondering if crampons and ice axe are necessary since it's only been snowing a couple weeks.
  2. Mt. Hood Climbing Partner in November

    I would strongly urge you to shoot for Hood at a later date. The conditions up on Hood in November are normally bad. I would try it later in the year, or even next March, April, May when the conditions allow for successful summits on Hood.
  3. St. Helens True Summit Elevation Gain ?

    Thanks olyclimber, that's my plan at this point. I have a feeling it's 200 feet or so of additional gain. But I'll head up again and figure it out.
  4. St. Helens True Summit Elevation Gain ?

    Thanks Sheep for your answer. So, sorry if I offended anyone, I see how agitated people can get, but I was asking a question specifically about environment, nothing personal or anything I would consider one needing to know my psyche profile and why one would ask a question like I did. Next time I'll put my entire reasoning (mental/physical/personal) for the question up front as to not offend anyone with my retort. Respectfully -n00b
  5. St. Helens True Summit Elevation Gain ?

    You guys crack me up. Smart ass? I ask a question and then I get a smart ass answer. Really? Thank you for the people that did provide an answer. If you must know, I'm keeping track of how my asthma does based on my elevation gain. I'm not trying to be a smart ass, I just don't get why people respond if they don't have anything close to an answer.

    Since I'm asking, yes it matters, to me. If it didn't matter (to me) I wouldn't have asked. If you don't know the answer then don't post.

  9. St. Helens True Summit Elevation Gain ?

    So I've climbed to the crater rim 4 times, but yesterday I made my way over to the true summit. Lots of down and up along the rim. Climber's Bivy is at 3,740' and the summit is 8,365'. Going straight to the top is a total of 4,625'. So my question is; with the ups and downs on the 0.25 mile traverse to the true summit, does anyone have an idea of what the actual elevation gain is? I'm thinking it would add 100 to 200 feet...not sure. Any ideas?
