First party up for the day. Mid-night start at the T.H. to beat the storm. White out at 2:00 AM and partner up to waste in hidden crevasse. Crazy canuck solo followed us down.
with group of fellow recent graduates of the Mountaineers' glacier skiing & crevasse rescue course. my first substantial glacier travel experience. great conditions, clean route, amazing place.
YEs, it was an amazing climb.....enjoyed it.:)
A less than perfect route (late season conditions required lots of traverses around crevasses) up the Easton Glacier on a perfect day, with awe-inspiring views!
The summit views are incredible.
My first really real mountain. Unbelievably difficult for me, and a totally new experience: never camped before (even for one night).
Didn't summit; snow bridge collapsed),
Standard route. Camped on the glacier somewhere. Summited the next day. Skid down from the crater. Awesome day!
Windy on top, but a beautiful morning above the clouds.
Trip report: here.
Route was in great condition and this was my first true mountaineering experience! Got me completely hooked!
Camped at 7200' near Heliotrope Ridge. Climbed up the Coleman Glacier to the Roman Wall and summited with Peter & Reza. Cold on top!
Two aborted attempts on Shuksan on this trip.
Reached the summit with a group of 3 as part of AAI's week long Alpinism I class. Great summit, climb, and class.
turned around a few times up here... i'll be back for sure... :)
My first major climb. Couldn't summit due to high winds on top. Still an awesome experience.
final headwall a bit taxing, but awesome weather and no alpine start. which is the best way to climb, dammit!
Weather determines all!
1x via Easton Glacier overnight trip
great basic glacier climb
My first glacier climb - can't believe it's been 20 years.
Very meaningful trip to the summit with my brother Bill. Extremely colorful, aesthetic mountain. The Roman Wall crux was a piece of cake. Navigating the crevasses in the dark on the Coleman was not!
