splattski and I had a grand time in the Cascadian couloir. Being a very low snow year, we ended up lugging our crampons and axes for naught. Glad to break the trip in to two days. You can pretty much avoid walking on any snow at all right now. The creek crossing is also trivial now. A little marine layer came in and obscured a lot of views but pretty awesome looking down onto the north face. As far as ultra prominence peaks go, this is a tough one.

Took our time up the Cascadian Couloir. Last storm took out the trail in the lower half, as well as the zigzaggy trail from Longs pass to Ingalls Creek. Pretty straight forward, long scree slog.

2 day trip - camped along Ingalls trail. Bad weather - basically rain and drizzle all day. No lightning thankfully. Summit traverse above the snow was fun. Due to bad visibility and following a climbers trail I also descended the wrong chute. Some sketchy downclimbing in a stream bed/waterfall. Eventually I picked up a decent if overgrown trail which took me down to the Ingalls ~0.5 miles east of camp.

Car to Car via the Cascade Couloir in a day. The couloir itself was a lot easier than I thought. There wasn't nearly as much loose rock and scree as I was expecting, although a helmet would be recommended still. Still snow above 8,500' to the false summit, but didn't need to go on any snow from the false summit to the true summit. Went too far east on our descent and ended up in the wrong gully (followed a climber's trail down, beware!) Could have been done in hiking/trail running shoes with some microspikes with an ice axe. Great day!

Left car at ~3:30 AM, back to car at ~8:00 PM. Fought off a mtn. goat with my ice ax. Took left scramble around false summit and then up. Came back down standard route off false summit. Glissaded down from false summit. River running high.

One Day Climb. Camped at the trailhead and Started at 7am. Hiked up and over and finished the hike at 6pm. Very tough hike about 13 miles RT by my GPS.

After crossing Ingalls Cre

ek on the way up we went Right (SE) along the Ingalls Creek Trail for about .25 miles to a cairn leading up the colour. The brush was a bit rough at first but it worked. On the way down we bypassed that by finding some other route. Couldn't explain it if I tried. It fizzled out and we walked straight through the brush downhill to the trail. Ending up just about 100 feet from the intersection of the trail going back. I don't think I would pick to try the more direct route up even if I could find it. It was a bit steep and the slopes were vegetated.

Complete North Ridge w/ Gendarme (V 5.9 28 pitches). Cloud cover resulting in low vis and some rain and snow on route led to unplanned bivy on ledge above Gendarme. A great route, long with a mix of wandery low 5th and sustained 5.8/9 climbing.

Digglercomplete N ridge- finally!!!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 14, 2012


WHAT a route!! When no opportunities opened up with friends, finally found a willing & able partner.

Camped near Ingalls Lake by meadows (would have just gone for the climb as a day climb in retrospect- additional hike back to camp after ascent SUCKED!), which provided stunning views of SW face of Stuart (& far too many obnoxious nocturnal goats).

Started from camp @ 5.20. Still a ways to go before reaching start of route (including a few sketchy snowfield crossings). Off & climbing finally @ 10.05. Belayed first 4 or so pitches of lower ridge before simul'ing to notch. P2 hardest of lower buttress. Simul'ed to Great Gendarme (seems like a misnomer- instead of climbing around the thing, you go straight up it). Successful roshambo meant I got the lead- phenomenal pitch (best of climb, in my opinion)!!! Linked strenuous lieback w/ "off-width" (actually a fist crack for normal-sized folks), then climbed ~50' above that to a 'bivy'/belay ledge. Dropped my brand new camera from notch above the gendarme, which SUCKED :( Made haste after that, as time growing nigh(t)- finally summited @ 20.05. LONG & fatigueing descent down Cascadian Couloir ensued (shitty-non-existent trails to Stuart Pass, then back to camp added to frustrations).

Finally back @ camp @ 3.06- WHAT a day, mountain, climb!!! Thanks, Mark!

Climbed via the Cascadian Couloir. Nothing major until the summit ridge is reached, and then some fun class 3 to the summit.
Fires were burning everywhere at the time, and we could see lots of smoke from the summit.

Came down the same way, making our way quickly digging into the soft sand.

Got off route a little bit, but managed to salvage it. Would like to come back when there are a few less clouds.

Loved the experience with my old Boy Scout leader Jack Kinney, Eddie Bolton and his girlfriend. Route finding was an issue but we at last prevailed. Some T-storms in the two days we were on the mountain but we found overhangs to stave off the hard rains. Pace was easy for me, didn't feel challenged.
