Loose as a goose  Sucess!

Scarey pile. Slow and deliberate with one semi-solid hold, which we carried with us to the top. Great views!

Route Climbed: East Ridge

Hiked up to the ridge late in the day. The weather was great, but the snow had softened somewhat. After getting up past the 4th class rock, a traverse across soft snow did not look inviting. Turned around 10 feet below the summit. Oh well, the glissading was great and the views spectacular.

I know this as Wamahaspi. (sp?) With Fred and Tanya Spicker. Combined with a ski down the couloir that leads to the first switchback on Washington Pass (Twisp side).

Climbed to the top of the couloir (maybe 7400'). Saw my first ever mountain goat just hanging out on the slope....he was probably wondering what all of us crazy people were doing in his back yard. Easy access and a short climb makes this one fast and fun.

Route Climbed: East Ridge Date Climbed: May 11, 2003  Sucess!

Climbed the East Ridge of Blue Lake Peak after summiting South Early Winters Spire. Fred Spicker and I attempted to go directly up the ridge and started to posthole up to our wastes in the soft snow. We traversed over and found some 4th class rock and climbed that to just below the summit before fighting through some more mushy snow to obtain the summit. The summit plateau and ridgeline on the approach were both corniced. Spectacular weather all day.
