schitthaedtRoute Climbed: Coleman-Deming Date Climbed: September 13th, 2003  Sucess!


Went up with the promise of a dusting of new snow, bought my snowboard and rode down the majority of the Coleman-Deming route. We found shallow powder/corn down to 8000 feet. Perfect weather for the third time in a row.

Once again, perfect conditions and amazing weather. The route was very busy on the weekend. We camped at the high camp up at 7000 feet, which in hindsight is not a very good idea. The glacier begins at 6000 feet, and the first section is steep and heavily crevassed. A fall with a full backpack on this section would not be pretty. It's a short climb anyway, so the low camp on the rocks at 6000 feet is perfectly suitable.

scot'teryxRoute Climbed: North Ridge Date Climbed: June 16, 2003  Sucess!


Left TH at 12 midnight for a one day ascent of the north ridge, and a ski down the coleman deming route

20 Hours RT, too many running belays above ice cliff due to fresh snow and balling up of crampons.

Good ski down on corn.

Part of an AAI mountaineering course. Spent 5 days up on the mountain. The weather cleared on or summit day and gave us nice crisp snow and great views.

Baker can be done in one day as an option. Leave cars from Heliotrope Ridge trailhead about 1:00AM, summit by 9:30AM and back to car by 3:00PM. We have done it the last two years as a warm up for other climbs. Just an option, but the packs are sure lighter.

Great trip! Had the route mostly to ourselves. Spent a few hours on the summit collecting glacial core samples with some WWU friends.

Reached the secondary summit before electing to turn back due to lenticular clouds blowing in. The descent turned into a complete whiteout. Read my trip report for a full description. It was a great climb with gorgeous views of the north cascades. Hardly any body there also . . . I will return to bag the true summit.

mtselmanRoute Climbed: North Ridge Date Climbed: May 26-27, 2003  Sucess!
Started early in a perfect weather. By 1pm reached the ice-climb on the ridge. After the leaders reached the top of the ridge, some of the climbers had difficulties ascending the ropes. Weather deteriorated. As a result - unplanned bivy in a snow cave dug on the top of the ridge. Next morning everyone reached the summit.

wallspeckRoute Climbed: Coleman-upper Deming Date Climbed: August 1998


We camped surrounded by flowers below the snow. Next day on the summit I surprised my wife with a gold and onyx ring to commemorate the summit. Our third member, Jim, fell and slid down a slope on the descent dragging my wife Melody into a crevasse. I found her lodged upside down, feet wiggling furiously in the air only an arms reach deep into the chasm. She got quite an adrenaline rush but was unhurt. Moving slowly, we didn't reach our tent until after dark.

Also climbed the North Ridge back in (I think) 1995. Spent one night at base of route and the next day climbed it and returned to car. Mostly it's pretty much a snow climb but there were 2 or 3 pitches that were cool. We had fun regardless.

Climbed the North Ridge car to car in 12 hours in very good conditions including 2 pitches of steep, excellent ice. Snowed up road forced a longer approach and a white out on the summit partly explain our slow time. Dehydration was also a factor.

bighurtbobRoute Climbed: Coleman Headwall Date Climbed: June 2000  Sucess!


Climbed Coleman Headwall in 10 hours car to car under very good conditions. A fit person could reasonably climb this route much faster.

The late Bob Harvey and I climbed the beautiful Coleman Glacier via it's Headwall in the fall of 1984. This was another of the unforgetable NW volcano climbs. Great trip!

ClimbLerRoute Climbed: Easton Glacier, South Face direct Date Climbed: 9/05/02  Sucess!
Spent six days on the mountain, some horrible weather during the first leg of the tri p. clearing skies and light winds on our summit day. beautiful conditions leaving camp at 4 am. very nice crevasses leading up to the Roman Wall. two rope teams, one lost water bottle into a crevasse. we managed to pass every other team on the mountain that morning, summiting in light clouds and fifteen mph winds. nice view to the east of Shuksan that lasted about a minute. Good climb, not very difficult and very asthetically pleasing, a beautiful mountain. Can't wait to try it in the winter with a snowboard.

I climbed with Alpine Ascents International, as part of their 6 Day Mountaineering Course.

Our Guides were Todd and Winslow Passey, and this husband and wife guiding team REALLY know what they are doing! They are nice folks, excellent teachers, and I highly recommend them to any, and all!
