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.
We've been up twice and been kicked off by weather twice. Last time, had to turn back 500 ft below the summit. I suppose we'll try again, North Ridge.
Gorgeous climb! perfect "get in shape" route
Park Glacier route up to the summit. Somewhat easy climb save for the crevasses that littered the glacier. Good practice for glacier navigation. Will take Coleman or Eastman on the next round.
started at 1 am in parking lot. summited at noon. back down to car by 5 pm. great climb, would do it earlier in the year next time.
Great climb, got uncomfortably warm resulting in a sloppy postholing! (w/ vertigo soul & gcap)
Coleman- Upper Deming Route
Climbed the colman Deming route 52 summits so far 20 of those have been solo and just compleated a trip this summer solo up and over down the Easton glaicer
Great place to practice glacier travel. It was quite the white out... the compass and wands came in extremely handy.
Beautiful Conditions. Dayhiked Shuksan the next day.
We hiked up from the south. Started up the glacier about 1am but thunder storm moving in from west and south made us decide to retreat.
I've climbed Komo Kulshan many times. I live at the base, so it's literally in my back yard!
Coleman/Deming, Easton, Boulder/Park, North Ridge, Squak......
Catching up on logs I should've signed years ago. Did this with Alpine Ascents out of B'ham when I first began climbing, week long glacier-travel class.
Whiskey dance party on the hogsback the night prior
Spent some time on the Coleman glacier for AAI's 3-Day Glacier Skills and Crevasse Rescue course. We had amazing weather the first two days, but then got rained on the way out. Wish I had more time to go for the climb.
My partner Toby and I left high camp at 4 a.m and went non-stop to the summit in 4 hours. Not too bad, considering he's blind...
What a gorgeous mountain!
Went up to Sandy Camp on Day 1, then climbed to the summit and back to the cars on Day 2 starting at 1:30am. The weather on both days was incredible with hardly a cloud in the sky the entire time we were there. Great climb!
Hiked up the Easton Glacier route. Lots of snow covered most of the crevs'. We got into thick fog/rain/snow/wind/white-out conditions from ~7000-~8500' and then broke thru to a perfect clear blue skies near the summit. The cloud deck covered everything below Baker. We went back thru the same white-out conditions on the descent .....for double the pleasure
