RMdaytripsgrlFirst Technical Ascent!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2001

RMdaytripsgrl

Via Coleman Glacier w/AAI 6 day class. Awesome! Had a pretty strong rope team and made it by sunrise on summit day. Descent and packing out camp makes this quite a day...Had a guy on the other rope team fall through a snow bridge...but good arrests had him dangling in mid air over the crevasse...An interesting rescue to say the least. Next on the list: Rainier!

Started 4:45 am from camp around 6000 ft and summited 9:30. Luckily, the snow remained firm on the ascent and started softening up during the start of the descent. A couple snowbridges needed to be crossed, but all without a problem. Crevasse on Roman Wall forced the route to the rocks for approximately 60 feet. Rather windy and chilly at the top. All in all, a beautiful clear day and the sight of the Sherman crater from the rim was incredible.

Camped about 5500ft. Weather was clear. Crevasses very visable.
The Roman Wall can be likened to a Misery Hill. Great climb, about
a 13 hour day. Glad to get back to camp for chow and water.

Great climb... very good weather. Left around 1:15am, summited around 6am. Quite a few open crevasses between 8000' and 9000'.

Great climb. Many snowbridges still solid even late in the day. Perfect weather for the climb.

Spent the first night below Black Buttes. Awoke at 12AM and after crossing a few snow bridges, reached the summit via the Roman Wall at 7:15 AM. It was a little hairy coming down the Roman Wall. Saw some people belaying down it. That might be a good way to go. Perfect weather conditions all weekend, almost no wind and not a cloud in the sky for hundreds of miles.

Fun route, did this to get ready for Mt. Rainier. This was much more fun and less people. Great mountain.

Climbed the route with my brother from a camp at ~6800 ft. We took 7 hours round-trip and then descended back to the trailhead with some fun glissading. Snow conditions on the Roman Wall were a bit poor with a breakable crust over looser snow which made for tough progress. Otherwise, an easy route with no crevasse issues.

Lots of bugs down low. I remember this only spured us on to get away from them. The railroad grade was a killer. Camping at the foot of the glacier, we could hear it creek and groan, with an occasional CRACK now and then. The morning of the climb we were treated to the most awesome display of Northern Lights I have ever seen. Awesome climb past the vents to the summit, with a long glissade back down.

I'll never do a glacier climb like this in May again. Wading through waist-deep snow was exhausting. A long, hot day. I was extremely jealous of everyone who had brought skis along.
