SkydiveKen1ST visit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 5, 2005


Left camp Muir at 2am and topped DC to see the most beautiful sunrise. A snow bridge just above it had collapsed and we had to step over about 4 feet. We returned down the Emmonds and cut across the bottom of the cleaver. Absolute perfect weather no wind and a few wisps of clouds.

gimpilatorCowlitz Glacier Avalanche  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 24, 2005


Only one white-out on the way to Muir and mild wind all day Sunday. We missed a giant avalanche on the Cowlitz Glacier by about a half hour. It looked like it came down from Cadaver Gap. One rock was the size of a house. Above Ingaham Flat, before dawn on summit day, it was like a four lane highway. So many RMI rope teams... Eleven of our party of thirteen summited.

PellucidWombatMore Interesting Than I Expected  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 20, 2006


Getting onto the DC was much more exposed and tenuous than I had expected - for me I'd say it was the highlight of the route.

We started out at 1am ahead of everyone else but were soon overtaken by guides as we made a wrong turn trying to get around the huge crevasse that had opened up at the bottom of the Cleaver. From there on we were jostling for position with them, arriving at the summit together at about 8am.

BaggerNice Lenticular Cloud  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2005


Aside from fighting with my two best friends all the way up, and getting caught in a bad storm under a lenticular cloud on the Muir snowfield, it was great. And I wouldn't have had it any other way.

Date Climbed: Jun 11, 2004


Beautiful day on the mountain. After dealing with fog, clouds, rain, snow, and winds at Camp Muir, we started up the mountain and got stuck behind a slow party of 12 that caused us to stop right under the icefall on Ingrahms glacier. The rest of the summit day ended up being a great day on the mountain. Had some natural rockfall near the bottom of Disapointment Cleave that just nicked a team of 2 behind us.
