Made a one day ascent from Paradise to Ingraham Flats. No rest day, so it kicked my butt with all the weight, especially up Cathedral Gap. MSR EGK stove decided that it didn't want to work so we got behind with water and dinner. Got to bed 3 hours after everyone else and my wife had so heart palpitations that scared her so we stayed at Ingraham as they left camp at 1am. The rest of the team made it to the summit around 715am. The said it was a great day with little wind, and clear skies. The Muir snowfield on the way down was hell, as it was all ice and crap that made for a hasty descent, especially with the new crevasses forming. Could have put crampons on, but too tired and lazy to do something like that!

Got an early start the night before at 1130pm from Camp Schurman, and climbed up until 12,400 feet where the wind and spindrift were completely overwhelming our rope teams. We turned back at 430 am and headed back down so that we could get down safely, and enjoy the trip, since the mountain isn't going anywhere that I can see. That route is the most indirect that the climbing ranger at Sherman has seen in years. So many crevasses causes routes to zig zag and traverse the whole way up. The trip up to Schurman via the Interglacier is in pretty bad conditions as well with a few snowbridges that have less than wanted compositions.

This was my second and last mandatory climb to graduate from my basic mountaineering course at college. We climbed to Camp Muir on Friday, sat out bad weather on Saturday, and did the summit on Sunday. I was sicker than a dog on the summit. It was with a very slow party, with the consequence that only my rope team, which was last up first down, stayed out of the building cloud cap in the afternoon. Our rope waited for ages at the top of Disappointment Cleaver while they came down to us. I waited until about 7PM at Camp Muir before they got there, and they all decided to stay another night. The leader had told me I couldn't leave Muir until everyone had returned there. Then I went down to Paradise alone, and barely beat out darkness and a cloud bank that would have made it much more difficult to locate the lodge. I can't remember when I was more wasted. I tried to drive home, but couldn't make it, and missed a day of work. Being a native and proud Washingtonian with a huge passion for my home state's mountains, climbing its major landmark at age 20 was a very satisfying accomplishment. But I've never had an urge to do it again! :-)
