Coleman Demming  Sucess!

Fun route, did this to get ready for Mt. Rainier. This was much more fun and less people. Great mountain.

Coleman-Deming  Sucess!

Climbed the route with my brother from a camp at ~6800 ft. We took 7 hours round-trip and then descended back to the trailhead with some fun glissading. Snow conditions on the Roman Wall were a bit poor with a breakable crust over looser snow which made for tough progress. Otherwise, an easy route with no crevasse issues.

My second summit, after Shuksan a few days before. Beautiful mountain, a great place to bring someone for their first climb.

Demming Route  Sucess!

Climbed with college buddies. Improper fitting Asolo boot rental -toughed it out. We came close to walking off the damn Demming Glacier wall! Perhaps it was the vapors...wild times...keep on rockin in the free world!

Easton Glacier  Sucess!

Lots of bugs down low. I remember this only spured us on to get away from them. The railroad grade was a killer. Camping at the foot of the glacier, we could hear it creek and groan, with an occasional CRACK now and then. The morning of the climb we were treated to the most awesome display of Northern Lights I have ever seen. Awesome climb past the vents to the summit, with a long glissade back down.

Route Climbed: Coleman Glacier  Sucess!

I'll never do a glacier climb like this in May again. Wading through waist-deep snow was exhausting. A long, hot day. I was extremely jealous of everyone who had brought skis along.

Summited late due to altitude sickness of some tripmates and had to return in slushy conditions. Fell halfway in a crevasse that gave way as I jumped across. Absolutely amazing clear weather. Great fun!

Great conditions most of the way up -- bit icy up at the very top in the transition to the top of the mountain.

Route Climbed: Easton/Deming Date Climbed: August 1997  Sucess!

My first Cascade volcano. Left camp at the top of the Railroad Grade with my son and a friend at 4am and summited about 10.30. Watched Rainer disappear in a rapidly advancing storm and got the heck out of there. Good baptism.

Route Climbed: Coleman Glacier On Ski Date Climbed: February 26, 2005  Sucess!

We took advantage of the low snow this past winter and the good trailhead access and skied the route in one day. Able to drive to within 2 miles and 1,000 feet of the trailhead making it an 8,000 foot day! Skied up to the col then booted it up to the top as the summit ridge was a bit firm and icy. Topped it off by skiing down and leaving my ice ax back up at the col... doh!
