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.

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.

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.

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

Did it as a party of three from the car to car in a big day. A pleasant climb with a couple of people who had never been up a mountain with snow before! They did a great job for their first time around. Wow was there a huge snowpack on top!

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!

Climbed with Steve Rankin. Started at trailhead at 4:30am, summited at 11:45am. Glacier in good shape, some route finding. Beautiful day to climb. Made it back to trailhead at 4pm, a nice 11.5 hour day. More satisfying to do the whole mountain in one day rather than camp at bottom of or on glacier.

Straight-forward with little route-finding. Conditions on the day were good although the night before looked ominous. Camped at 6500feet on Railroad Grade. Summit took 4 hours, 7 hours round trip.

jasonconnellRoute Climbed: Easton and Coleman Date Climbed: March 98 and Summer 99  Sucess!


My friend Nick and I snowshoed all the way to the Summit in March 98. 3 days round trip.

We went back in 99 with girlfriends and did a variation of the Coleman.

Back again with a group of Starbucks Mountaineers.

Did the Coleman Car to Summit in 7.5 hours, great climb/conditions/weather

Late season ascent. Camped on ridge below the lower Lincoln Peak. Good site. Coleman was pretty broken up. Had lousy weatehr until 4:30 AM, departed camp then. Upper demming below the Roman Wall was bullet proof 30-40 degree ice (softer on the right side, we used this path for descent). Last 40 vertical feet was up to 50-55 degrees of hard ice. Fun stuff. Made summit plateau at 11:00.

My first time breaking through a snowbridge on descent. Climbed out. SCARY!!!

9/1/02 it was Grade II - AI 2

My wife's second Volcano and a great day for a summit. We were one of three teams on the entire mountain which was great. The route was very straight forward with very little route finding. All bridges were still in great shape. Saw some guys ski from the summit in just over 12 minutes.....made me jealous.

The flys ate us alive on the approach hike which seemed twice as long coming out.

Took the AAI six day cascade course. we had perfect

weather the for our entire stay. the descent from the

summit was kind of a PITA because the snow was

soft we were postholing up to our knees.
