Roman Wall  Sucess!

This trip we had amazing weather and everything about it was just awesome. our route included the roman wall which was a litlle crazy at times but totally worth every muscle wrenching step. Great views from every angle of the climb as there weren't any clouds anywhere.

Coleman-Demming  Sucess!

My first climb in the Cascades! My friend Chris Umphres and I climbed Baker fast and light. From the car, we climbed to the Col between Baker and Coflax Peak where we built a snow cave. We left our cave at 5 am and summited in a couple of hours. On the way down the large snow dome, my leg punched through a good-sized crevasse. Do not try this mouintain unroped! After Baker, we headed directly to Rainier and summited the next morning.

Route: Coleman/Deming

A beautiful mountain. Severe post-holing cut short our summit attempt. A great trip none the less.

Coleman Deming  Sucess!

Was a fun route, just a long slog to the top.

First Technical Ascent!  Sucess!

Via Coleman Glacier w/AAI 6 day class. Awesome! Had a pretty strong rope team and made it by sunrise on summit day. Descent and packing out camp makes this quite a day...Had a guy on the other rope team fall through a snow bridge...but good arrests had him dangling in mid air over the crevasse...An interesting rescue to say the least. Next on the list: Rainier!

Easton Glacier  Sucess!

Started 4:45 am from camp around 6000 ft and summited 9:30. Luckily, the snow remained firm on the ascent and started softening up during the start of the descent. A couple snowbridges needed to be crossed, but all without a problem. Crevasse on Roman Wall forced the route to the rocks for approximately 60 feet. Rather windy and chilly at the top. All in all, a beautiful clear day and the sight of the Sherman crater from the rim was incredible.

Easton-Deming Glacier  Sucess!

Camped about 5500ft. Weather was clear. Crevasses very visable.
The Roman Wall can be likened to a Misery Hill. Great climb, about
a 13 hour day. Glad to get back to camp for chow and water.

Coleman-Deming  Sucess!

Great climb... very good weather. Left around 1:15am, summited around 6am. Quite a few open crevasses between 8000' and 9000'.

Coleman-Deming Route  Sucess!

Great climb. Many snowbridges still solid even late in the day. Perfect weather for the climb.

Roman Wall  Sucess!

Spent the first night below Black Buttes. Awoke at 12AM and after crossing a few snow bridges, reached the summit via the Roman Wall at 7:15 AM. It was a little hairy coming down the Roman Wall. Saw some people belaying down it. That might be a good way to go. Perfect weather conditions all weekend, almost no wind and not a cloud in the sky for hundreds of miles.

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.
