Date Climbed: Jul 17, 2010


Hiked up to Camp Muir from Paradise on July 16, 2010. Spent four hours setting up camp, melting snow, and preparing and eating dinnner. Laid in the tent for a few hours. Started for the summit at 2:39 am on July 17, 2010. Took six hours to summit. Perfect clear day. Got back to Muir, packed up and hiked down to Paradise, then drove east. 44 hours later (from the morning of July 16) I finally got some sleep!!!

Mike Lewis

Spent the night at Ingraham Flats. Group got up at 2:30 AM and we did our best. And it was good enough. I was worried the altitiude would get to me but I did alright in good company. We took our time and summited around 6:30-ish (didn't have a watch). One of the best endurance tests I've ever had. Also a good leadership test. Great weather and teamwork made it possible.

Date Climbed: Jun 16, 2010


Super cold climb with early season conditions. Ingraham Flats camp was a great place to make our summit bid from. I stayed up at the top of the crater rim while my three companions headed up to Liberty Cap.

Bruce ChristensenGreat July conditions on Emmons  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2010

Bruce Christensen

Summitted with great conditions on Wednesday. There was also a guided group of ~15, an independent group of 9, and one or two smaller groups on the same day. Winds were pretty low at Schurman, snow was firm but not icy, and skies were clear.

Snow on the trail a mile or so before Glacier Basin. Saw a bear on the trail on the way up. No visible crevasses (and a great glissade descent) on the Inter Glacier. A couple of easily avoided crevasses between the top of IG and Schurman. Saw hummingbirds at camp.

Route was pretty direct up the corridor, with a bit of zigging and zagging near the top. Stepped across maybe five or six crevasses on the way up; most were still closed. Bergschrund was still just a step across (after a small traverse to the right).

Epic! Attempted the Kautz Route but got weathered off. Went to Ingraham a week later and got the hard earned summit!

jamesmc2Skiing the Finger  Sucess!


Climbed the Fuhrer Finger. Absolute classic. Beautiful camp on the southern flank of the Wilson glacier. Perfect spring/early summer conditions. Left camp at 4:00 am and summited at 11:00 am. Ski descent back to camp by 1:30. My first time above 14,000.

Date Climbed: Jun 29, 2010


40+mph winds. Somehow my helmet came unbuckled and it almost blew over the rim. Funny we saw three helmets and a pair of goggles laying in/on crevace lips and saw a real nice hard shell blow past us on the decent.
My first time on top, but not the last.
Climb on!

Spent 3 nights at camp Muir, on day 2 we relaxed and played in crevasses on the Nisqually Glacier. Up to the summit on day 3, enjoyed a few hours on top soaking in the views and exploring the snow caves around the rim. The crevasses were wide open, making the route very scenic, had one ladder to cross and one 3 foot leap that was replaced with a second ladder 2 days later. After day 1 had clear skies, no wind the entire time.

BrookTroutLeiphartSaw the Pacific!!!
Date Climbed: Sep 6, 1975
Went up with 2 guys from Minneapolis with full packs and camped on top. After dinner, we hiked to the top to watch the sunset. It was so clear we could see the Pacific Ocean beyond the Olympic Peninsula! Could also see Mt. Jefferson beyond Mt. Hood! Our summit photos just happened to see Mt. St. Hellens before it erupted. I did not bring a sleeping bag to save weight-big mistake-I was cold until the sun hit the tent! This was my 4th state highpoint. Got all 50 in 31 years!!!

mychaelFirst Mountaineering Experience  Sucess!


Climbed the DC in aug 2004. Woefully underprepared and extremely lucky for the excellent weather and incident free day. Looking back now, it was quite foolish to even attempt due to my lack of experience.
