New stuff for the PNW

Postby ExcitableBoy » Tue Dec 21, 2010 6:35 pm

I added the Adams Glacier route to the Mt Adams page: http://www.summitpost.org/adams-glacier/686134

Since it is officially winter, I updated my article on climbing Mt Rainier to include a section on winter climbing and added some informative links. http://www.summitpost.org/so-you-want-t ... ier/507227

Coo'.... I can see this turning into a "Whats New in the PNW" thread. Plus that'd be better than Europe cause it rhymes. :mrgreen:

I added a new route to Bryant Peak at Snoqualmie Pass: http://www.summitpost.org/northeast-face/688261

This was an undocumented route that I climbed back in the winter of 1994. It is a nice winter climb and makes for a good alternative to Chair Peak.

I added a new route page for the Northwest Ice Couloir on Eldorado Peak. http://www.summitpost.org/northwest-ice-couloir/688985

I also added photos to my trip report from my ascent of the route. http://www.summitpost.org/view_object.p ... irm_post=7

Thanks Tazz. I was looking for gift wrapping and found some old photos which inspired me to scan them and create a couple of route pages for them. If I run across my Mt Hunter photos I may take a stab at creating a page for that mountain.

I added a trip report for the Northeast Butress of Colchuck Peak. http://www.summitpost.org/view_object.p ... irm_post=4

Although featured in Alan Kearney's book on Cascades climbs, this route does not get the recognition or traffic it deserves.

tazz, If you want a more moderate route that is not the slog up the glacier, you might consider the North Buttress reached via the North Buttress Couloir.

Used to be I knew springtime arrived when I'd start seeing Colchuck NBC reports on cc.com. Second only to "when's WA Pass gonna open?" :lol:

I think people have such mixed reviews on the NE Buttress of Colchuck because everyone climbs a different route! You've got Beckey and Kearney, and then everyone who follows one ends up doing pieces of the other one, along with some crappy pink rock in between. We tried the Kearney and got it about half right. Definitely scary slab new route potential at the point where you gain the ridge crest near the end. Just look down those slabs to the glacier...surprised no one has done it?
