Easton Glacier  Sucess!

Climbed up the Railroad Grade and Easton Glacier this summer with my sister and a friend. None of us had been up this mountain. The weather was great and it was beautiful. A lot of steam at the fumarole. Can't wait to go back and try another route. I saw Shuksan and Glacier Peak in the distance and realized I still need to climb those two.

Easton in September

weather looked bad so we got a late start but we broke out of the cloud layer shortly after getting on to the glacier. some interesting crevasse maneuvers due to the lateness of the season.

Triple List Completion!!!  Sucess!

What a way to celebrate the first day of Summer! (Leap Year)

I simultaneously completed the Washington County Highpoints (10th Completer overall), Washington County Prominence Points (5th Completer overall), and Washington 25-Mile Isolation Peaks (6th Completer overall) at the summit.

Special thanks to my teammates... Adam, Joe, and Jeremy... for helping make this trip happen. We had perfect weather and conditions for our one long ascent... 11h30m to the summit from the cars.

Alpinism 1  Sucess!

Did this as part of American Alpine Institue's 6-day Alpinism 1 course. On the 5th day we summited in beautiful conditions, leaving Sandy Camp around 1:30am. Very little wind and relatively warm. Plenty of snow this year so most bridges were in good shape, thus no major end runs around crevasses.

Epic!  Sucess!

This was for me by far the hardest thing I have ever done. I've climbed Rainier and many other peaks, but because of the condition I was in, that is what made it so hard. So don't always judge it by the difficulty of the route, but sometimes by the condition you are in. And I was feeling very sick.

Ski ascent/decent  Sucess!

The route was in the clouds from the moraine to the summit plateau. Made for some interesting skiing. Car to car in a leisurely 14 hours.

First Volcano

My friend Will was kind enough to teach me the basics of glacier travel for this peak. We were able to ascend by ski most of the way, but did use crampons for the last 1500 feet. The ski down was unbelievable (and a lot better than walking!)

More fun than expected  Sucess!

I was expecting a boring slog, since I was taking some first timers up to the top. However, what I got was a beautiful and diverse climb. I will most definitely be back to ski this!

What a winner  Sucess!

Our group camped at 6400 and headed for the summit the next more. Though there was a t-storm the evening before the weather was nice that night and the summit was set up perfectly for us. We were the first on this busy and special summit. See TR

Baker in a day  Sucess!

Well not quite... We set up camp around 5900' at noon, departed for the summit at 1:30, and topped out at 7:30pm. After spending 30 min on the summit, we descended by the crater at 9:00, and got back to camp at 11:00pm. July 7, 2007

My First strato volcano  Sucess!

What I do recall was the hike thru the prehistoric forrest (Shibers Meadow???) to the railroad grade rock-moraine which lead to our high camp at the end and the =begining of the Easton Glacier. The Roman Headwall was a nice alpine morning climb to the summit which we reached on a warm 80 degree day.
Comming down is a whole 'nother story......
