YEMWorm Flows  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 21, 2010


Tali, Taylor, Cammie and I climbed through the night and hit the summit a little after sunrise. The temperatures were in the single digits and the wind was near constant at 30 mph. We were all sketched out by the cornices after the recent death, so no lava dome pictures were taken:( After having the summit to ourselves for an hour, we saw nearly 100 people on the way down. Priceless

Decent day to climb. Clear morning, but raced the fog to the top. Unfortunately the fog hit the rim the same time we did so there wasn't much of a view. It was cold and windy at the rim....surprise, surprise. I belive we were the only ones that summited that day. We passed several groups on the way up, and on the way down, that bailed because of the fog at the top. Lots of thick ice on the ridge crests, so it's best to stay on the side of the ridge on the wind deposited snow. We brought snowshoes, but ditched them near Chocolate Falls. We didn't need them at all. Crampons were a must, as well as an ice axe up on the steep slopes.

First of several (about 4 now). Kind of ashy in the fall, much nicer in the winter when snow covered.

Took a friend visiting from England up St. Helens via Monitor Ridge. Was a beautiful bluebird day and a fantastic climb. A few days later, we went to see the IMAX film depicting the actual eruption...it was amazing to say the least; especially since I actually remember when it happened and how it impacted the Pacific Northwest.

Got winds upwards of 40mph filled with rain. It was fun even though we couldn't see much. My gear was worth every penny today! Will have to come back on a clear day.

MalibuFirst ever Cascade climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 18, 1998


Did this with many of the same group I would climb Hood with a year later. My first Cascade Peak climb and experience of seeing the world from a birds-eye point of view at almost 9000 ft while still standing on the ground. Truly special. Going to climb this again in Spring 2010.

The first time the mountain was fogged in. Came back 2 days later to great views into the crater and the nearby volcanoes. Great to see Mt. Rainier after just climbing it.

Winter route from the Sno Park. Awesome weather, except the two hours spent on top looking into the crater. Still an amazing view. 3,5 hours up, 2 down.

This is one of my favorite backcountry ski destinations! The snowmobiles are a turn off though. But that does keep the roads plowed in winter, so.....

We coincidently hit the 29th Anniversary of the 1980 eruption! Me on snowshoes with Magnus & Tyson on skis. Best glissading ever!!! Felt sorry for my buddies on skis ;-). Thanks to the girl on snowshoes who took over breaking trail from me on the way up!
