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!
In the dark we couldn't find which best way to go around some massive gaps in the Easton glacier, so we ended up heading across the Demming and up the rock band at the edge of the Coleman. On the descent, we headed down the Squock and back across the Easton to high camp. Frequent and huge crevasses made navigation quite enjoyably interesting, better than I expected. This loop tour took 10 hours to complete.
Reached the top with two partners after a four hour climb from Sandy Camp. I thought the views were great and the crater was really neat too.
Left high camp at Hogsback just after 3 and made the slow plod to the summit in great weather. Crevasses were narrow at the time, so no real issues. Rainy on the way in, but that's how it goes in this part of the world
First time on Baker and the weather couldn't have been better. Beautiful blue skies and nice temps. Made it to the summit and back down around noonish. My First "real" volcano ascent and still a favorite route up the Coleman/Deming
18 hours round-trip with Craig, Joe, and Jeremy. My 4th summit attempt and second success.
Left the truck at 8pm made the summit by 7:30am and back to the truck by 1pm. A great trip with great friends. The snow conditions turned to garbage around 7,000' on the way back to the car! Great Fun!
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.
