Vic HansonAugust 2012 glaciers - 4  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 12, 2012

Vic Hanson

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

Grampahawk

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.

Date Climbed: Jul 31, 2012

boisedoc

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.

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

BKW

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

iquest4itMount Shuksan - SE Rib  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 9, 2011

iquest4it

Even now in August the snow started very low in the valley at about 4,000, and the Sulfide Glacier was in early spring conditions. The gully was full of rotten snow, so we took the SE Rib, which we were told was mostly 5.4. I only had a dozen pieces of pro, and the route I ended up taking on climbers right was more like 5.7-5.8, but the rock was unbelievably solid.

Date Climbed: Jul 23, 2011

gimpilator

One day ascent, 15.5 hours car to car. Steep ice on the summit pyramid forced us off of the standard route and onto the southeast rib. The rib involved some exposed Class 4 which we chose to rappel in 3 pitches on the descent.

Nice trip up with Alpine Ascents... didn't get to Summit though due to the weather and avalanche danger.

Josh LewisFisher Chimneys Attempt
Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2011

Josh Lewis

After getting to lake Ann I could see clouds coming in the horizon, which to me was the first sign of trouble. As we ascended towards the Fisher Chimneys it became a huge black cloud wall with the sunrise, I knew by now that a storm was coming in. After being belayed up a rock section I could tell that the snow was not as solid as I had hoped. When I got on the snow my crampons got caught on my prussik cord from behind and I nearly tripped down the mountain. It was in that very second that I knew that it would be a bad idea for me to continue, plus I felt like someone should accompany Eric (he got sketched out) for the descend to the car. When we got to the car it was raining like blazes, and I knew that Sebash and Ski were going through a epic adventure...

Day hiked with Eric, Josh and Sebastian. Ended up summitting somehow in a storm with Sebas. Descended via the White Salmon Glacier- big mistake. Nearly killed by rockfall, got lost at the bottom of the glacier, ended up following some mysterious flagging on random trees to the ski resort. 17 hours car to car.
