11 Bulgars in one trip  Sucess!

Did as part of my big Glacier Peak Wilderness Trip where we climbed Emerald, Cardinal (including its south peak), Saska, Pinnacle, South Spectacle Butte, Fernow, Copper, Flora, Martin, Bonanza and Dark Peaks. 9 days, 78.5 miles, and 44,300 feet gain!

Cardinal, Saska, Emerald  Sucess!

After 8 miles of approach I realized that I had left my glacier goggles in the car. Facing 2 more days of heavy sun and snow travel, I made Inuit style snow goggles out of available materials. Although these were not ideal, my eyes went unharmed. We knew it was going to be hot so we didn't bring a tent or use bivy sacks. Alexei and I climbed Cardinal and Saska on the second day. On the third day we climbed Emerald before heading out. Emerald was my 26th Bulger peak.

Approached on ski  Sucess!

Climbed while on multi-day backcountry ski trip. Frozen snow in the slots at top made me glad I had crampons that fit my ski boots, and whippets. Lots of bad weather, but had wonderful moment of sun and quiet warmth just on the summit.
