bc44caesarEast Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 21, 2007


Left around 7am from the parking lot and had no trouble finding a log crossing and the trail (I don't know why anyone has trouble with this). Reached snow at the first boulder field, and skinned from the second boulder field on. My partner hadn't been out the last few months due to a knee injury so he decided to call it quits when we reached the Inspiration Gl. I ran on and caught up with another party we'd been climbing on and off with during the day and summitted together with them in the clouds around three.

The upper mountain descent was nice powder, but everything below was a little sloppy. Back at the car at 6pm after the agonizing descent down the trail. Awesome area. Johannesburg is ridiculous looking.

Great peak with an exciting knife edge to finish! I lost my keys and were stuck in Marble Mount for hours. Interesting people who live there.

The ice was in excellent shape. Not another soul on the mountain besides the four in our group.

The whole climb I was anticipating the view from the summit, but got whited out on the knife ridge. I guess I will have to climb it again, yee ha!

This was a great climb. We camped on the Inspiration Glacier the previous night, so it took no time to get up. The knife edge snow ridge leading to the summit was both fun and beautiful.

Date Climbed: Feb 20, 2006
We set off on 2/19 at 7 am and after struggling with the knee-deep snow in the Eldorado Creek basin we camped at the 6200 ft saddle. We left the camp at 3:30 am and reached the summit at 7:30. Poor visibility/whiteout caught us on our descent through the Inspiration and Eldorado Glaciers. Luckily we returned to our camp and back to the Cascade River road (1 pm).

Climbed El Dorado as the final summit in a traverse from Boston Basin. The snow arete was neat and the views outstanding, but the trail down to the Cascade River Road was strenuous.

Perfect weather, low clouds made for an amazing 360 degree view of the surrounding peaks.

Got up to our camp spot at ~7600 on the rocks at 5PM. The weather was favorable, so we decided to summit that evening. Perfect light, above the clouds, amazing views all around.

Fog and clouds broke for a spectacular summit view. We could have scrambled the rocks all the way to the summit but decided to get back on the snow for the classic snow ridge.

Included an unplanned bivy 2/3 of the way up. Just dumb luck that our trip was Friday-Sunday, instead of Saturday-Monday. Our Saturday night bivy was one of the warmest & calmest I've seen in the Cascades. The next night the mountains were hit by major thunderstorms, starting forest fires that burned for months all over the range.
