Moogie737Fishers Chimneys  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 11, 2014


Two-day adventure with excellent Mt. Baker Mountain Guides John and Jenni Minier. Camped at the "Eagle's Nest." Loved the upper Curtis Glacier, Hell's Highway and the approach to the summit pyramid. What a terrific varied hike - it offers some of everything and then some. Quite the day when you summit and then come out all the way back to Austin Pass TH. IVD

Great route, couldn't find the chimneys going up, which made for a spicy variation. The upper Curtis glacier was a bit icy making our extra ice tool a great asset as well as a few ice screws.

Date Climbed: Aug 6, 2013


8hrs car to car (on 3hrs of sleep), the DAY AFTER doing two peaks and over 6500' of elevation gain in the Enchantments. SE Rib was fun, with about 3 sections each of 5.4 and Class 4. Downclimbed the standard gully.

The mixture of ice, snow and rock made it a real struggle that was a little much for us this time. I might want to redo this in August.

Smiley and I met some of his friends for this climb, we camped near the pit toilet the first evening, roped up and climbed up the glacier in the morning, met lots of people coming down both on the snow and on the rock chute, where we had to wait some for them to pass on down. A nice scramble to the summit, of course great views of Baker, a little too hazy to see distant peaks. After returning to camp and having lunch, Smiley and I packed up and hiked back to the trail head, the rest spent a second night at camp.

Date Climbed: Aug 9, 2012


Via Sulphide glacier. Once we made it to the rockpile, we missed the route to the right of "Casper" and did some unprotected class 5 moves on the rock which made for some harrowing times.We rapped down from the summit, which was fun. The soft snow on the descent also made self arrest almost impossible and there were several areas with no runout. Be careful out there.

boisedocSulphide and SE rib  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 31, 2012


Spectacular setting and views. The glacier travel was straightforward. I thought the southeast rib was pretty exciting and exposed (at least for someone like myself who doesn't rock climb much and also when wearing mountaineering boots). Rappeled down the gully which is almost completely bare of snow right now.

Made camp above 7000 feet. Sunset was amazing. Still hard snow in gully even in August. Got up and down just ahead of group of 9 climbers.
5 quick rappels and off we go.

Date Climbed: Aug 7, 2010


New to SP: signing summit logs.
Climbed the Sulphide route in 2010 after getting chased off Silver Star Mt. by smoke from the fires in Stehekin. Made it to the summit chimney but the rotten snow was pretty sketchy and we were tired of breathing smoke from the forest fires in BC (lots of fires that weekend). Climb was uneventful but we briefly got disoriented in the fog that lingered in a band just at base camp on the toe of the Sulphide. I'll be going back to finish it off but will definitely take wands next time to mark the route from camp up to the ridge.

BKWSulphide perfection
Date Climbed: Jul 8, 2012


Beautiful weather made for a great time climbing and sleeping out under the stars. There is still an immense amount of snow at lower elevations. We saw (and felt) a huge chunk of the crystal glacier calve off and fall into sulphide lake. The perfection ran out in the pyramid gully which was filled with sloppy, slushy snow. While a few members of our party tried the south-east ridge but ran out of pro, we watched a two-some grind there way up the gully over the course of two and a half hours. Props, but it looked super sketchy.
Climbed with the Mountaineers.

Bought plane ticket for time most convienent for work but not conditions. Fellow SP'er relic climbed Shannon Ridge to the clouds and slop to the pass above the toe of the Sulfide glacier. Awoke @ 1:30 am to urinate and sounds of sleet. Forecast for probable clearing incorrect. Descended in worse slop and rain. Retreated to Seattle to dry out and regroup. Consider it a scouting trip. Don't believe weather predictions promised by airline ticket agents 5 months prior to trip
