perfect conditions are so nice  Sucess!

skin up. stay at lake helen. maybe 20 for a low overnight. climb up. summit. light a match on the summit. blow it out. look around. laugh. ski down. perfect snow on the gulch. as The Flight of the Concords say, "Conditions were perfect". will have to do the chutes next time.

First Time  Sucess!

My first time on Crampons and using an ice axe. Learned what a long day in the mountains is

Lame on foot  Sucess!

Ticked for the list should have climbed it another way or done it in better snow on skies.

Great glissade  Sucess!

All worth it for the glissade. Whiteout on top with most people choosing to go back down from the Red Banks.

AG left of Heart  Sucess!

Route: Avalanche Gulch Variation Left of Heart

First mountaineering trip with a bunch of Boy Scouts and my brother. Left horse camp about 0300 and returned in 12 hrs. Ryan and friend summitted, then myself and brother. Others to follow. All but 3 summitted. Will have to come back when there is more snow.

DAY HIKE!  Sucess!

Tina and I were supposed to camp at 50/50 Sat nite but with impending crud weather on Sunday and our zest for adventure....we dayhiked the Hill! Loved it even though I was sucking butt over 13K'. Had the best time!

AG  Sucess!

CMF annual climb...4/6 climbers stood on top.
Local wildfires made the view kind of crappy, but still worth every step.
Until next year...

great first climb  Sucess!

Round trip in a big day from Bunny Flat. A very good intro mountaineering route. My friend puked at the Red Banks! Awesome glissade down nearly the whole route.

2nd time's a charm  Sucess!

Don't take Shasta too lightly. At first light on a busy Sunday morning, I saw the first summitter of the day tumble about 500 feet after taking a false step right below Red Banks. He had to be helicoptered out from Helen Lake.
