Great climb, got uncomfortably warm resulting in a sloppy postholing! (w/ vertigo soul & gcap)
Coleman- Upper Deming Route
Climbed the colman Deming route 52 summits so far 20 of those have been solo and just compleated a trip this summer solo up and over down the Easton glaicer
Great place to practice glacier travel. It was quite the white out... the compass and wands came in extremely handy.
Beautiful Conditions. Dayhiked Shuksan the next day.
We hiked up from the south. Started up the glacier about 1am but thunder storm moving in from west and south made us decide to retreat.
I've climbed Komo Kulshan many times. I live at the base, so it's literally in my back yard!
Coleman/Deming, Easton, Boulder/Park, North Ridge, Squak......
Catching up on logs I should've signed years ago. Did this with Alpine Ascents out of B'ham when I first began climbing, week long glacier-travel class.
Whiskey dance party on the hogsback the night prior
Spent some time on the Coleman glacier for AAI's 3-Day Glacier Skills and Crevasse Rescue course. We had amazing weather the first two days, but then got rained on the way out. Wish I had more time to go for the climb.
My partner Toby and I left high camp at 4 a.m and went non-stop to the summit in 4 hours. Not too bad, considering he's blind...
What a gorgeous mountain!
Went up to Sandy Camp on Day 1, then climbed to the summit and back to the cars on Day 2 starting at 1:30am. The weather on both days was incredible with hardly a cloud in the sky the entire time we were there. Great climb!
Hiked up the Easton Glacier route. Lots of snow covered most of the crevs'. We got into thick fog/rain/snow/wind/white-out conditions from ~7000-~8500' and then broke thru to a perfect clear blue skies near the summit. The cloud deck covered everything below Baker. We went back thru the same white-out conditions on the descent .....for double the pleasure
What a climb with Andrew (son). After ridge, clouds with less than rope length visability, followed pon print to top, boot path down.
Dropped SPOT Sat on/near summit. Tracked down Coleman Glacier between 10:45 and 12:30. If you found a SPOT or know someone who did please email me email@example.com, or call 503-750-7387. Thanks! Brian
Great climb with gcap and lutty! Fun and exciting route, definitely a memorable one.
perfect day on coleman headwall with lutty and vertigo soul. no wind on summit. ZERO. really warm on the way down lead to some nasty postholing,
We took the Easton Glacier/railroad grade route. Spent two miserable days in the cold rain, and started in the fog at 4am. We busted through the clouds at 8000 ft into the glorious sun and had the whole mountain to ourselves. Due to a heavy snowpack we had minimal crevasse issues and made the summit in record time. Decesended back into the rain. Welcome to the cascades. On to Mount Hood next.
Lots of snow made for a tough climb. Wish I brought skis.
Great climb in on incredible mountain
