Nice  Sucess!

This was a fun climb, a very straight foreward route, and an enjoyable talus and scree scramble. Made the ascent in 9 hours car to car.

Second time's the charm  Sucess!

Climbed this one on the second go round in September. The route is straightforward on the south side, only scary bit was just below the summit with a few exposed moves and were probably Class 4. Such an amazing view from the summit and camping at Wing Lake is still one of my favorite spots. I'd recommend a fall ascent to really appreciate the colors at the lake.

Standard  Sucess!

9.5 hours round-trip. Much easier than I expected but a nice peak all the same. Not much scrambling required to reach the summit. This is my 20th Bulger peak.

Great  Sucess!

Great trip and a wonderful climb except for being stalked by a predatory mountain goat.

SE route an ill scramble!  Sucess!

This is one of the most beautiful places and most fun scrambles I've ever been to, but the season was not great, very buggy. A huge buttress fell off the ridge above the Lewis Glacier moraine that sounded like a plane overhead, then more fell twice again that day. Accidently took the loop the wrong way and had to go all the way over Maple Pass, down the Heather Pass. A little extra elevation, but very pretty meadows up there.

NE ridge little known beauty  Sucess!

This is another climb that I thoroughly enjoyed even though it was an less popular route on a less popular peak. The views were great, the climbing varied and not too tough. Good stuff.

South "Ridge"  Sucess!

It was supposed to be a 5 day Labor Day weekend with the usual partner and two friends from Arizona. Managed to sneak in during the only 24 hours of dry weather the whole weekend.

I don't know about the "permanent snowfield" that Beckey talks about though.

NE Ridge  Sucess!

Hung out on the summit listening to Jack Johnson for a half hour waiting for some friends. Great day!

Northeast Ridge  Sucess!

Nice bivy at lake and then up airy ridge on good solid rock. Lot of exposure makes this a challenge. Fantastic climb with Norman.

Fantabulous  Sucess!

Mazamas climb. Camped at Wing Lake. The stretch to the top is easier than it seemed from below, and it is way fun. There are some loose rock areas, and a few spots of exposure near the summit, but really a fun ascent to do.

South Ridge  Sucess!

This was my dog's first real mountain trip. She made it 20 feet from the summit and I continued up to the top. Whimpers brought me back to the false summit after a few shots. The rock wasn't bad and there was plenty of snow. We had the upper mountain to ourselves. Heaven.

NE Ridge  Sucess!

A planned 2 day trip turned into 3. Carried too much gear, climbed too slow. Didn't want to negotiate the boulder field in the dark and miss the trail so we stayed one more night.

Route Climbed: South Ridge  Sucess!

Camped at Heather Pass, climbed Black and continued on to Corteo although it was not easy getting back to the pass. The east face of Corteo is quite treacherous, especially without a rope. NOT recommended!

South Ridge  Sucess!

Nice day on decent climb and scramble finish. Getting from upper snow slope to the ridge seemed to be the crux, as terrain was very loose and crumbly. Excellent times camping out at the lake below.

South Ridge  Sucess!

Beautiful summit. Very airy on top. Best views of Goode around. Camped at Wing Lake. Lake froze over during the night (Labor Day weekend).

South Ridge  Sucess!

Stayed on scree to right of snowfield to notch. Snowfield had large moat making getting on or off too difficult. Followed many cairns on the ridge and in gully to below false summit. Traversed eastward and climbed a 40' class 3 gulley to summit. Nice day until smoke from fire in Stehekin put a lid on the viewed. Fun climb!
