Bake Sale

My friend Will was kind enough to teach me the basics of glacier travel for this peak. We were able to ascend by ski most of the way, but did use crampons for the last 1500 feet. The ski down was unbelievable (and a lot better than walking!)

Mini Expedition Style

Wondered around the glaciers for 3 day while practicing glacier travel and crevasse rescue. Spend 4th day in tent while a storm blew through. Summited via Coleman Headwall...big wakeup call but lots of fun.

Coleman-Deming Bash  Sucess!

The cloud forming on the summit all morning suddenly cleared when we were just below the Roman Wall. A very dramatic reveal. Beautiful summit, very windy. We were one of only two groups to make it up that day due to posthole purgatory.

Colfax attempt from Thunder Glacier
fantastic skiing but we were stymied by the ice conditions on the ridge of the primary objective.

Perfect Weather  Sucess!

My first big climb since breaking my ankle 2 months earlier. Topped out just after 7am in perfect weather conditions. Coleman/Deming was in good shape and there were no open crevasses on the route.

Rain, Rain, Rain, Rain...  Sucess!

Rained on us half of every day of a 6-day glacier training course. One guy bailed in the middle of the night on day one, the rest stuck it out... Wetter and colder every day. Was both fun and miserable. Summit day was great though, got above the clouds and into the sun.

Camped out for 2 nights just below 6000ft. It was really windy but the weather was amazing. I got sick and opted not to go for the summit with my group. It was still an enjoyable couple of days in the mountains though.

The Bham mtn  Sucess!

My local mtn when I went to WWU. Climbed it a second time a year later, but in September - amazing how many more crevasses were open.

WWU OC Trip  Sucess!

My first climb on a glaciated peak! The WWU Outdoor Center fall trip went off without a hitch. We took the Coleman Route up Grouse Creek from the Heliotrope TH. Thunderstorm hit as we walked down the 2.8 snowy road miles to the cars.

2nd Route Climbed  Sucess!

It was a long day on the Easton Route due to some slow partners, but we made it up, and down just in time for a thunderstorm to hit. Went into the crater, which was cool – and sulphurous.

Easton; Glacier course  Sucess!

Glacier Mountaineering refresher course with MM; had some fun 'hang' time during crevasse rescue and summited with my new climbing buddies Christiano from NYC (Milan) & Lt. Jane, USN, who did Mt. Whitney with me 2 months later.

Easton Glacier  Sucess!

We did the Easton Glacier route. The weather was perfect....a little warm on summit day but we started climbing at 3:00am so the mountain shaded us till we hit the summit. The descent was warm and very soft near the end.
I like the Coleman Demming route better...more interesting...
The Easton Glacier is a long slog with a few large crevasses. The views were awesome.
We camped above "High Camp" although the camp was only 5800'. We had a small pool of water to filter and some bare ground to put the tent on. Lots of flowers on the Railroad Grade.
We started out with 9-climbers and finished with 7...two were struck with AMS...or just a lack of energy.
Instead of camping one more night after summiting, we just decided to pack up and walk out the same day. Dian and I spent the night in Sedro Woolley to get a good night sleep before the long drive home.

Camp to camp 9.5-hours...

Beautiful  Sucess!

What a climb, great weather. Pretty crowded on the way down, I'm glad we started when we did. "I've got blistas on my [feet]!!!"

Easton  Sucess!

High winds from below the crater on up. 100's of people on the route

North Ridge

Climbed the North Ridge as part of a 6 day AAI Alpine Ice class. Turned the climb part way up the ice cliff at 9600' due bad weather, communication issues, route finding problems on the leader's part, etc. I plan to go back and finish the route some time!
