Via West Ridge  Sucess!

As many have said, this is a long day. Not terribly hard, just long. Just over 17 miles with over 6500' of gain depending on how traverse the ridge. The route is entirely snow free. Rockfall was kinda bad, so helmet might be useful (though I was the only one with a helmet today). The class 3 scramble was trickier than expected. Make sure you ascend the correct gully to the summit spire. Look for cairns! Around half a dozen or so others probably made summit today. Certainly a nice break from the smoke and haze.

Summit REgister Missing?  Sucess!

Did the standard west ridge route. It was snow free and pretty much 3rd class to the summit. From the col, the trail heads to the north side, before it peters out in a plethora of choices. I think the key is to skip the first 2 or 3 possible gullies to the ridge line and to stay longer on the north side. I then picked a 3rd class gully/ramp system to the ridge, dropped over to the south side and finished entirely on the south side on easy 3rd class. So I only crossed the ridge once. 2/3 of the way I was on the north side before switching to the south side for the final third. Four hours round trip from Lake Caroline. Summit register was not to be found.

Cashmere Sweater  Sucess!

Summited with Jason. Tiffany and Brian Garcia were with us, but didn't go all the way. On the way to Windy Pass, a marmot walked up to Jason on the trail and took a bite out of the toe of his boot. He kicked that little communist!

S gully up, W ridge down  Sucess!

Fantastic scramble! I did a loop route with Jake and it was awesome. I think the SE approach should become the standard route up, saves so many miles and it's a better scramble. Trip report here.

Did a very fun scramble up the south side, then descended standard route.

A good Choice  Sucess!

We went up via the Lake Victoria route which was a bit brushy, but acceptable. The North Route above the lake was decent. Summited just before sunset. Went down the standard route due to not wanting to go back through the brush. Pulled off three ticks that day.

via Lake Victoria   Sucess!

Went with josh and mike lewis. Schwacked to lake Victoria and climbed snow directly to the summit on the north face. Then descended to lake Caroline and hiked down the eightmile trail in the dark. Long day!

Lake Victoria/NW face  Sucess!

The non-scramble version with Josh Lewis and Matt Lemke. The best ALW summit I have done with the best view of the Enchantments by far. Approach to the lake was a * route but from the lake to the summit was ****. Great memorable snow-climb. Thanks Matt Lemke for taking us there. I look forward to the report. Here's a cheesy vid:

Alone in the Wilderness  Sucess!

Spent the night at Caroline lake with no company and then to the summit solo. So quiet.

Unbelievably Hot  Sucess!

Our first day in was 101 degrees in Leavenworth. Amazed we didn't collapse from the heat.

Cashmere Solo  Sucess!

An excellent class 3-4 scramble, definitely one of the better in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness. Camped at Eightmile Lake and went up the peak in the afternoon with two partners, both of whom turned around at Little Caroline Lake.

North Ridge we think  Sucess!

We followed footsteps and cairns and summited via the north ridge. When the cairns ran out we just used our sense and were on the summit shortly thereafter. Beautiful day! Great peak!

Cashmere Rocks!  Sucess!

A very enjoyable scramble. The views of The Enchantments make this climb gorgeous. I believe the short class 4 moves can be avoided if you take time to look around. My 27th Bulger Peak.

One Of The Year's Best Outings!  Sucess!

This was a great all-around alpine experience with a great partners (Adam, Greg, Jacob). We choose wisely for our destination, as much of Washington was having thunderstorms and we had great weather conditions. The hike took 10 hours roundtrip (5h20m to summit, 40m at summit, 4h0m to car). Highly recommended peak!!!

A long day  Sucess!

My second successful climb on the Bulger list. I found this to be a very easy hike although a long one.
