Mt. Barbeau might be a relatively small mountain but I've never felt more isolated and tranquil then on the top of Barbeau. It truly has one of the most stunning views of any peak I have climbed and I've climbed alot including Rainier, Denali, and Aconcagua to name a few. You can feel the desolation to your bones on this mountain which you can't find on any of the bigger more popular mountains. Barbeau is truly an ice gem that I hope always maintains its wild uninhabited feel. It was genuinely a grand adventure! See our trip report in the 2003 American Alpine Journal. I would also like to thank the AAC, Helly Hansen,REI Challange Fund, Mountainsmith, Moonstone, Mountain House, and Pete Dronkers for making the trip happen.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
