Early Season Climb

Unfortunately, we had an unsuccessful summit attempt. The weather was good, but we had some equipment failure - a broken tent pole and a ripped shoulder strap on a brand new pack. Turning back was hard, but hopefully I'll be back.

Coleman-Demming  Sucess!

Went to Baker on the way home after enduring bad weather in the Canadian Rockies. Fun cramponing on the headwall. Managed to drop my camera (plus two slide rolls from the rockies) into a crevasse. Hope some future climber/geologist enjoys the impromptu time capsule!

Easton Glacier  Sucess!

We climbed up with a full moon. We didn't even need our head lights then a storm rolled in just after reaching the summit we descended in almost white out conditions. This is a great route but the weather changes very fast.

easton glacier  Sucess!

did a nice climb of this route via a different approach...we deliberately went off track through any challenging section we possibly could. made for a longer day, but fun training along the way to the top. no one else on the route either.

Easton  Sucess!

Up the Easton Glacier as my first Glacier climb. A good beginner since there is very little altitude. Pretty, yet smelly volcano. Did it with OSAT

Coleman  Sucess!

Got to base camp at 6000ft and it was raining/snowing, just about turned around to go get some pizza and beer at the Northfork brewing Co. Good thing we didnt because it cleared up the next day and we got up the mountain with no problem.

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.
