Sounds easier on snow  Sucess!

Snow climb from Alpental to saddle, then up SE ridge. Seemed pretty straightforward.

International Route  Sucess!

Bushwhack from Sessel lift or about the bottom of lower International to upper International, then snow climb to top of chair. Picked the first face and climbed it. Fast climb if you know a route without having to bushwhack. Left at 5:35pm, back at 8:45pm

Denny Mountain  Sucess!

Got done with Snoqualmie by 9am, so went after this one for a quick 2fer. Route was completely snow free - probably would be a lot more fun in May or June.

Chairlift Snow Climb  Sucess!

On the summit block, we climbed up through some moats and class 3, with vegetation assistance. On the way down we tried to find a better way, which was a mistake, and we ended up downclimbing a short overhanging fifth class step.

BC Ski  Sucess!

All but the tip top summit which is closed during resort-operations as a VertFest Racer. Will have to tag it again in the spring/summer. Skied International over to Snake Dance and down to the lodge for the party.

Slabby  Sucess!

The conditions were very slabby and slushy. My back pack fell apart and down into many snow slabs which I had to chase it down the mountain and grab my gear before it got covered in snow. Besides that it was a good trip.

With the Tooth  Sucess!

Soloed The Tooth on a snowy, spring day. Ran into MVS and company and ended up climbing Denny from The Tooth. Some interesting climbing along the way.

Snow climb  Sucess!

I'd read somewhere that the summit block featured 30-40 feet of class 3-4 scrambling, but instead I found a single class 3 move to get onto the highpoint. Oh well. Nice enough peak anyway.

Great Scott Route

Had planned on climbing Lundeen, but there was a couple inches of fresh snow the night before so we opted to get some exercize.

North/East Face, Class 3  Sucess!

A solo trip to this close-to-home (at the time) peak. Strictly cross country. Done in deteriorating weather. A good day, none the less.

Good spring climb  Sucess!

Climbed the Bushwhack route on snow. There was one little rock wall to get through, and the top was steep and challenging.

Dicey climb  Sucess!

A nice weekend snowshoe outing before the ski area opens up for the season. Our travels were plagued by a 1cm hoarfrost layer that became full on semi-bulletproof ice towards the top. Due to the conditions and the crappy state of our snowshoes crampons, we elected only to ascend to the top of the Eidelweiss chair. Great day on the whole.

Snow Travel Practice  Sucess!

OSAT and other Seattle are climbing clubs use the Alpental ski area (after it closes for the season) for snow travel and ice axe arrest training classes. We frequently include a scramble to the summit of Denny as a part of this activity.

Route Climbed: Up the chairlift line - bushwhack Date Climbed: Sept. 21, 2004  Sucess!

I first climbed Denny on the fourth of July, 1984 and had an easy time of it due to the deep but hard-packed snow from just a couple hundred vertical feet up the slope. This time was way more of a challenge due to 80% of the way being covered in thick chest-high, or higher, brush. The upper pitch is a boulder field with about a 40 degree slope but that's easy compared to the brush! Once I figured out the locations of the paths up the conduit lines it was easier!

All-in-all a rewarding trek with great views in all directions.

Have to come back and ski this in winter - the upper runs are incredible.

1:50 up, 1:12 down.
