Trip: Mt. Ellinor - Regular Route

 

Date: 3/21/2010

 

Trip Report:

My bro, his wife Michelle, myself and our friend Erin were all out in the Olympics for the weekend and decided to head up Mt. Ellinor for the day. We started kinda early and drove up the the lower trailhead. The road is still pretty snowy and an AWD is required to get up there. We made the hike up to the camping area at the base of the coulior (about 2.5 miles to here). Here Michelle and Erin decided to head back down the trail because they had the dogs and they didn't have ice axes. Mur and I sprinted up to the summit- up the coulior and up there in an hour. The wind on the summit was steady. We took some pictures and headed down via glissade. It was a fast descent and took us about an hour to get all the way down.

Gear Notes:

pants for glissade, ice ax, no crampons needed this time.
