Serpentine Ridge (IV 5.8)  Sucess!

Hiked in and found a nice campsite close to the small lake (and toilet). Minimal snow on the approach the next morning. The crux pitches were really good (and fairly challenging) and the rest of the route was fun low fifth-class with some harder steps. I didn't find the rock to be that loose and, in fact, thought it was quite solid. The summit was really nice with a comfortable sitting pad and great views of Rainier, Stuart, and Colchuck. We could also see Glacier and a hazy Adams. The descent from Aasgard Pass was long. Spent a second night by the lake and hiked out the next morning.

Aasgard Pass/Snow Creek Glacier  Sucess!

Camped at Colchuck Lake. The climb to the pass was icy while the glacier was pure fluff. Great views and a very fun winter/spring climb.

Serpentine Ridge  Sucess!

Yes, it has some loose rock, but a great climb! We lucked out with some amazing views from the summit, seeing from Rainier all the way north to Mt Baker! And of course the views of the Enchantments were definitely amazing!

East Ridge via Aasgard & SCG  Sucess!

Good little romp. Casual 3:45 up from Colchuck Lake, and 1:40 down. Stayed on snow for the most part up to Aasgard, and above that snow was a little mushy. Only about 50 minutes from Agard to summit, and very short amount of time on the actual ridge. Camped at the lake which is melted out and a few camp sites are becoming apparent. Squitoes are also becoming apparent and I can imagine the nightmare in another month or so.

Not quite walk-up  Sucess!

Started walking up from the enchantments, but the rock was so good I was lured into climbing a 60 ft cliff up to the ridge. I had my rock shoes with me for bouldering, but no rope or partner. It was pretty stupid in retrospect, but the views from the top were amazing.

Serpentine & Backbone  Sucess!

Two car-to-car outings.

Backbone Ridge (July 22, 2006): TR is here

Serpentine Ridge (July 24, 2005):
Shirley and I drove to TH on Saturday evening. Tried to get a nap in the car but that did not work out. Started hiking at 11:30pm - way too early as it turned out. Got to base at 3 & change am at a very relaxed pace (very relaxed as I was a bit sick). Busted out the emergency space blanket as it was chilly. Sat/napped/shivered there till about 6 am. On route by 6:30 am. Crux pitch was nice and views were great but climbing itself overall was disappointing. Loose rock on upper pitches. Got to summit ~2ish pm. Nice summit with perfect weather (sunny & warm). Got a nap in. Easy ( but painful on knees) descent. Hike out. Back in car 8 and change pm. Lotta chilled coffee in L-worth & fast food. A short nap at Snoqualmie Pass somehow extended itself when the alarm failed to function. Back in Portland 3:30am. At work at 9.

Route Climbed: Aasgard Pass Snow creek glacier  Sucess!

Plan was to climb Dragontail on Sat and then drop down to the Colchuck col and summit Colchuck also. Given the record hot temps we decided to wait and get an early start sunday morning. After summiting about 7:00am we decided to forgo Colchuck until the following day, via the colchuck glacier.

Route Climbed: Aasgard Pass/Snow Creek Glacier  Sucess!

One day from car to summit. Luckily, it was a cool day. I would never want to go up Aasgard Pass in hot weather.

Route Climbed: Serpentine Arete Date Climbed: 02 August, 2004  Sucess!

Car to car in sixteen hours. The climbing low on the route was enjoyable, the twin cracks pitch outstanding. The upper pitches were loose and demanded concentration. Generally stay more to climber's left to stay out of a loose gully and headwall to the right. Did not need crampons or ice axe for the climb or descent.
