Andy DeweyRoute Climbed: Easton  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 28, 2007

Andy Dewey

Only 50' visibility at times, broke from clouds at 7000' into beautiful clear day. Bitter cold fierce wind blowing on top, stayed on top for about 2 minutes! Temperature varied from 20 degrees on top to over 70 at around 7000'! Punched through a hidden crevasse on the descent. Lots of snowmobiles on the first day, none on the second.

Fun day out with friends. Nervous moment when Euro-skier was ascending the steeper portion on skins, decided to use our rope as a temporary handline. Enjoyed route more than Easton Glacier which I did two years prior.

Dude!!! is the only word that can describe the climb. I managed to find the 6 most perfect days to play on Mt Baker. There was no wind, rain or sleet just clear blue skies and awesome views. Went up the Coleman Deming route and on summit day had hard snow that was perfect for crampons. The crevasses were still pretty much still closed and getting purchase on the Roman Wall was not a problem. Like I said earlier Dude!!! is the only way to describe the climb.

Incredible experience!! I looked at that mountain from Bellingham for way too long not to have finally climbed it. One of the very few summits that moved me to tears to be atop it.

A blizzard and subsequent whiteout turned us around at 8500 feet. You can read about Jon falling into the crevasse in the Trip Report. I'll try again in a month.

Me and Jon lead this group of 11 for our school, WWU. At the base of the Roman Wall we encountered severe wind loading. We proceeded with caution but several members on the lead rope team heard a crack and one person saw the snow fracture. Deciding it was unsafe to proceed, we turned around. I'll be back the weekend after next to give it another go.

Unfortunately, we had an unsuccessful summit attempt. The weather was good, but we had some equipment failure - a broken tent pole and a ripped shoulder strap on a brand new pack. Turning back was hard, but hopefully I'll be back.

Went to Baker on the way home after enduring bad weather in the Canadian Rockies. Fun cramponing on the headwall. Managed to drop my camera (plus two slide rolls from the rockies) into a crevasse. Hope some future climber/geologist enjoys the impromptu time capsule!

We climbed up with a full moon. We didn't even need our head lights then a storm rolled in just after reaching the summit we descended in almost white out conditions. This is a great route but the weather changes very fast.

did a nice climb of this route via a different approach...we deliberately went off track through any challenging section we possibly could. made for a longer day, but fun training along the way to the top. no one else on the route either.

Up the Easton Glacier as my first Glacier climb. A good beginner since there is very little altitude. Pretty, yet smelly volcano. Did it with OSAT

Got to base camp at 6000ft and it was raining/snowing, just about turned around to go get some pizza and beer at the Northfork brewing Co. Good thing we didnt because it cleared up the next day and we got up the mountain with no problem.

This trip we had amazing weather and everything about it was just awesome. our route included the roman wall which was a litlle crazy at times but totally worth every muscle wrenching step. Great views from every angle of the climb as there weren't any clouds anywhere.

My first climb in the Cascades! My friend Chris Umphres and I climbed Baker fast and light. From the car, we climbed to the Col between Baker and Coflax Peak where we built a snow cave. We left our cave at 5 am and summited in a couple of hours. On the way down the large snow dome, my leg punched through a good-sized crevasse. Do not try this mouintain unroped! After Baker, we headed directly to Rainier and summited the next morning.

A beautiful mountain. Severe post-holing cut short our summit attempt. A great trip none the less.
