EleutherosFisher Chimney Variation  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 28, 2015


Fisher Chimneys in 2 days, with a 5.4 variation over the ridge on the right side of the route as it ascends Winnie's Slide. Awesome.. just damn incredible.

Crevasses are opening up and the route will be tough to climb in a few weeks.

Had a blast on the Fisher's Chimneys route to ring in independence day. Fun route to solo; a bit wonky in mountaineering boots.

Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2015


Wow - all I can say after tackling the most technically challenging LONG summit day of summer 2015. 4:45am departure from Lake Ann, 6:30pm arrival time back at camp. Chimney's are juggy and fun, but a workout. Winnie's Slide was some crampon toe pointing and axe swinging (necessary rappel downclimb). Plenty of pro in the places you needed it on the summit pyramid - probably 25 people up top by the time we got there. Nothing blown out just yet with respect to cracks

awesome climb with a ton of variation. A lot of crevasses severely limited our route choices but we got there eventually. Down climbing and lowering in the Chimneys had its moments but overall a great intermediate level climb. We did it in two days which was ambitious but good to be home.

Date Climbed: Jul 11, 2015


Shuksan is going to make me earn it ... multiple weeks of near drought conditions met our 2 day climbing plans last weekend with constant / consistent rain, making the first chimney (full of wet vegetation) a risk not worth taking. Round two end of month hopefully ...

It took 4 days, but the final 600' scramble was SO worth all the effort.

Date Climbed: Aug 10, 2014


Great route! Primo conditions on Winnies slide and Hell's Highway. Definitely finish on the SE Rib......great, mellow simul-climbing with fun exposure and outstanding views. Watch out for the mounties rappelling down the gully! Party of 12 kicking rocks and shouting at each other. We unroped and blew past them as quickly as possible. Fun stuff

Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2014


After getting off route, I slogged up the ridge next to the White Salmon Glacier on the way up, intersecting the correct route near the top of the glacier. Taking the proper route on the way down was much easier and more fun. A mellow day on a nice-looking mountain. Trip report.

Date Climbed: Jul 15, 2014


Couldn't ask for better conditions! At night the temps were in the mid 50s at high camp. Sky was a little hazy from all the forest fires. We climbed the SE ridge and might have gotten a little off course, because we ran into some 5.7-5.8ish moves.

Date Climbed: Jul 14, 2014


The problems started when they had sold out the permits. We had to camp low and I couldn't talk anyone into getting an early start. Having not been there we had no idea how long it would take to hike up. By the time we got to the pyramid, folks were coming down. We scrambled up the central gully to 8800 ft but were continuously dodging rocks from climbers rappelling down. After I got hit on the head with a rock I decided to bag a summit attempt. I must say though, it was was beautiful up there and I will go back next year and climb the S.E. Rib. I'll also procure my permit a little earlier. Well worth the hike, but mine turned into a scouting mission.

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.

Date Climbed: Jul 14, 2013


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.
