Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2007


All the sand was exhausting, but the views were well worth it--not a cloud to be seen, while a nice breeze kept it cool. Butterflies everywhere.

Great trip up Monitor Ridge and adjacent snowfields. Hiked up with Jay, Jane, Pat and Kyle. Nice group, very windy day, pumice sandblasting the face isn't that pleasant, but for five minutes on the summit we had no wind. We left at 2:30 am by headlamps and summited and got down before the heat of the day..my preferred method of hiking St.Helens. An alpine start is great for avoiding the heat coming off all that lava rock...
Lava dome looked much different (wider and flatter) than last year around the same time. Will hopefully come back next year to take another peek over the rim.

laurelMother's Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 13, 2007


Went there for the first time for Mother's Day, that was a party... I went with a bunch of skiers from Women Climbers NW, but I walked/glissaded. Perfect weather -- cool and a bit of snow for the way up, sunny and warm near the top and for the way down (and for sitting by the car waiting for the skiers to stop messing around and get down).

Beautiful climb! 6 hours to the top from the parking lot at a fairly relaxed pace. Crater view was awe-inspiring! Fun ski down (to within 100 ft of the trailhead!)

Date Climbed: Jun 10, 2007
Snow all the way from Climber's Bivouac. The ridge itself is clear but we steered clear and stuck to the snowfields. No crampons needed. Very windy with a heavy mist and even a few snowflakes. We made it to the rim but there was not much visibility. Glissading was great and all in all it was fun. We left at 7 am and returned at 3. Our group was large so we were slow moving.

Climbed several times, but nothing beats Mother's Day wearing a Euro techno punk outfit.

With my friend Stuart and his g/f. Started at 7, summit by 12:30, started back down at 1:15, back by 3:30. Lost my glasses early on the trail, fortunately ran into someone that had a spare pair I could borrow, a real eyesaver. Beautiful clear day, a bit windy and cool on the summit, but on the way down it got quite warm. The glissades from the summit are first class, up there with the Mt. Adams glissade. An outstanding day.

On a whim, my pal and I set off from my house in PDX at 1:30 am. Made it to the Worm Flows lot at 3:30 am. We had to turn around at 6,200' because of white-out conditions. Got home at 1:30 pm.

I think we were there. Something about a white out on the summit. "Saw" the rim...but only the cornice and that was about it. We took on the longer range for our round trip to the top...about eight hours to the top and three back down. Good to get to the top but disappointing cause the day before was crystal clear and beautiful after Mt Hood.

Date Climbed: Mar 29, 2007


Took advantage of the only Blue Bird day of the week and headed up to Helens. Took off from Marble Mountain Snow Park on backcountry skis at 8am amd arrived at the summit 6 hrs later. 5650 vertical feet later we enjoyed the view from the windswept top. Had a great ski down...all of that 5650 and straight to the car. 45 minutes down sure beats walking!

Had a great climb with Brian Jenkins up the Worm flows route. Snow was firm consolidated pack to 6500' where the rain from several days prior had turned to ice. Broke the crampons out and walked to the top. My guess, 50mph sustained winds at the summit. A bit treacherous climbing down with the ice cover till about 6000' where the snow had softened to "cream of corn". Broke out the snowshoes and floated back to the car.

Turned back somewhere below the summit, due to supermarmot, who I will now refer to as the lovely friend who let his darling brotherly but completely unecessary concern for my wellbeing overpower his quest for summitpost power points (meanwhile, I was enjoying a 3000' half pipe). What a sucker.

Drove down from Seattle in the morning to climb St. Helens, and ended up joining a group of three nice fellows at Jack's. I had trouble with my skins on the ice and had to boot a couple thousand feet of the climb. Skinned over to the true summit (I think) and descended. I chattered my way down the mountain on the ice, but skis made the descent quick. Bluebird day with unbelievable views from Jefferson to Baker. ~6.5hrs RT, 13hr door to door
