Great climb, camped at 6500'.
Went with Pro Guiding Service based out of North Bend WA. Due to excellent weather outlook and minimal estimated risk, we all decided to watch the sunset from the summit. We started at 2pm and arrived at the top at 8:30ish. We descended in the dark and arrived back at camp at 1:30am the next morning. The guides were great and I learned a lot (such as the Munter method for time calculation). It was a super fun trip.
I was planning to do the north ridge, but was tempted by the headwall, and glad I chose to do it. It was fun to swing tools on this consistently steep route. ~5h car-to-summit, ~8h car-to-car. Trip report.
Left at 3:30 am from the Heliotrope Ridge TH and summitted at 10:15ish. We were back the cars at 1:15. I did it in my gtx hiking boots and my friend did it in his 5.10 approach shoes. Less is more!
Successful two-day twofer with excellent guide Kel Rossiter. Camped at the west end of the Coleman snowfield @ 6,500'. Alpine start at 2:15 - what else - and on top by 6 a.m. Bagged Colfax Peak on the return and hiked out. One of the creek crossings on the way out was, shall we say, interesting... Missed my hiking friend(s) on this one.
Woke up at 3am and did the full ascent/decent. Messed up my knee while post-holing down the soft snow.
Took right ice variation with Eric, Tian and Jeffrey. Good Mazamas outing.
Camped at the Black Buttes, and followed the Coleman Glacier up to the pumice ridge, and then up the roman wall and over to the true summit. Snow was a little soft due to the warm weather, but otherwise excellent conditions.
Via the north ridge. A super sweet route.
Ditto to JLuthanen. My 4th summit but first with skis, the only way to do it.
Left Bellingham after 12am, started out at Heliotrope TH just before 2am. Summit by just after 12pm, ski out from the saddle across Colfax and back to the car by 5. Perfect weather
Camped at 6800 near Heliotrope Ridge. Alpine start at 2:10 a.m. Summit at 6:20 a.m. Broke camp and we were back to the trail head at 11:45 a.m. Perfect conditions and beautiful weather. John taught me about crevasse rescue. We made a good team. Wishing my friends in the Wasatch could have joined.
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!
