Mount Saint Helens Trip Report (#6783)

Hiked Mt St Helens via Monitor Ridge Trail from Climbers bivy on my 30th birthday, with my two best friends from home (Massachusetts). On the trail about 7:45, summitted and called my wife from the summit around noon, and made it back down by before 3PM. Clouds rolled in to about 5000', making the trip down a little bit harder, but the trail is extremely well marked. Views at the top, both into the Crater and north and south into the Cascades make it well worth the effort!
