I've climbed it every year since 2019. This summer I was able to take my 2 oldest kids 15, and 12 to the summit. They really enjoyed it! The Mt St Helens Institute had pretty accurate up to date info on the mountain. I used the climbers bivouac trailhead. They opened it 2 weeks before I climbed last month. While there was some snow in the trees, above treeline, there was less snow than previous years. Muscle memory is how I score my permits. I get on the computer a half hour before the permits go on sale and practice clicking dates and numbers. Of course every time I go, I'm on a quest for more information about the mountain and people in the area on May 18th. This time around I found out there was a second plane photographing the initial slide and lateral blast. I was able to acquire a record with a song written for Harry Truman. Cool stuff. David Johnston's vehicle and trailer were found, but reburied. The family requested that the location remained secret so as the area didn't become a shrine. Sorry for the rabbit trail. Worm flow route seems to be the best snow route from what I hear.
