Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2011


Spent a short night at Lake Helen before climbing and summitting the next morning. Left camp at 4am, and summitted just after 10 I believe. Beautiful weather, though alot of wind during the first night.

Of course, glissaded back down! A great trip.

ssbclimberAvalanche Gulch  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 8, 2008


Climbed the standard Avalanche Gulch route with Ezra Danciu and George Sakaldasis. 16 hour day from the Bunny Flat Campground and back. Cold and windy on the summit but otherwise great weather. Long glissades on the descent made return much easier.

My first snow ascent. Went up Avalanche Gulch. Camped a 500' below lake Helen. Super clear day, the views were awesome. Glissading was a blast.

nbmarHotlum Bolam Ridge - Perfect Late Season Conditions  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 21, 2011
Group of 6 made it up to base camp about 9600ft on Aug 20th, barely a cloud in the sky. Left around 3:30am on the 21st and were standing on the summit before 10am. Hard consolidated snow, bit of blue ice on the ramp that could be avoided. Clear skies and amazing conditions so late in the year. Berg is still bridged, but outline showing clearly so we avoided.

Date Climbed: Aug 21, 2011


Epic climb - 13hrs to top. Noticed symptoms of slight altitude sickness at the summit. Started climbing down immediately and made it back all right. Next time I will remember to bring more water and candy.

ElGrecoBolam Glacier  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 17, 2011


Ascended Bolam glacier and descended a combination of the upper glacier, Bolam Gully and Hotlum-Bolam ridge. Beautiful approach day to Marine Camp, but at midnight the switch turned on the the winds started howling. The bergschrund was bridged in a couple of places so we crossed it. Perfect surface conditions for cramponing. No ice except a very short section of shards near the North Summit. Fierce headwinds during the climb, with summit gusts forecast at 60-70mph - short video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dslWOPxdpmY

A whiteout followed shortly. Proposed to my girlfriend at the summit... She said "yes"!

Date Climbed: Aug 7, 2011


Beautiful day on AG with no winds, warm temps, and the perfect size sun cups for finding nice steps in the snow while climbing. Storm clouds developed on our way down but didn't affect us.

TSHAGELPerfect First Backcountry Skiing Experience up and down the West Face Gully
Date Climbed: Jun 18, 2011


Deb and I spent 12 hours climbing, only to get kicked off ~700ft. from the top of the route due to white out and ~50 mph. winds. The Ski down was unreal. Perfect snow, we couldn't have asked for any better. Once we skied over to the south side, down "giddy giddy", it turned into pure mash potatoes and was miserable skiing. All in all, it was beautiful. Next year, I WILL take the summit.
