JakesterSecond attempt this year
Date Climbed: Sep 20, 2008


Weather thwarted our attempt this time. Our tents were pelted with rain/snow mix for 12 hours straight at Camp Muir before we decided to call it off and head back to Paradise. White out conditions and avalanche danger were the biggest threats. Oh well, next time.

Made it up the DC climbing with RMI for the Summit For Someone program. This is a new high point for me and was the most rewarding climb I have done yet.

fatdadLate season on the DC  Sucess!


Climbed this in Sept. '02 with John Reyher after finding out that the crevasses on both the Tahoma and Kautz were too open to climb. Really dry conditions so we didn't bother roping up until the descent, which really didn't make any sense. A wonderful adventure followed by a dinner of salmon and redhooks at Paradise.

Great climb. DC route was unpassable up top due to a wide crevasse so the route went below the cleaver and up the Emmons.

Snowbridges were in bad shape on the DC route so we had to go around the Cleaver, down the Emmon and up.

The mountain has wicked weather. On the way to Muir, we encountered extreme heat, then endured a huge thunderstorm with lightning during the night but then it cleared up just long enough for us to reach the summit. On the way down to Paradise, we had a snowstorm, then hail and finally a downpour. All in all, a fantastic trip and would do it all again!

Was in the Kautz Ice chute when clouds, snow descended down to 12,000'. Waited to see if it would clear, did not. Rapping down on bollards. Watch out for the penetentis (spelling???)

Wow! What a mountain. Weather blew in as we climbed above 13,000 feet. I made the definition of a "summit" by making it into the crater, but I did not have the time and energy to cross the crater to Columbia Crest. I needed at least a 15 minute break for that to be physically possible for me and the guides were in a hurry to go right away because of the weather, so I remained in the crater to rest while a few in our group reached the true highpoint. Most of us did the same, we were exhausted from a tough climb. The guides had pushed us hard because of the storm blowing in. With cold, wind, and zero visibility, I don't think I missed much, it does mean I need to return sometime in the future to get the actual highpoint. I will be happy to do this, and climb by another route of course, the steep rocky sections of the DC route weren't too fun with crampons.

This was my third attempt. Summitted (Columbia Crestand Point Success) early morning 7/27 with Paul Walter and Yafis Barlas after a 6 hour climb. Beautiful weather! We descended to Camp Muir and then to Paradise the next morning.
