Route Climbed: East Slopes  Sucess!

I did the east slopes, then the class 4 ridge to Father Dyer (Would have been easier Class 3 off of the ridge top). From there I bagged Crystal Peak. Three 13ers in a day was brutal for my legs!

East Slopes to Father Dyer and Crystal  Sucess!

That's one steep slope! The scramble to Father Dyer was an absolute gem

Climbed Mount Helen as the first section of a long loop including Father Dyer, Crystal, Pacific & Atlantic. Loved the scramble from Helen to Father Dyer! We finished with a traverse back east along Pacific's east ridge.

Gorgeous day, and like any good summit experience, the winds picked up and snow fell on us! Would be a great slope to ski in the winter!

Route Climbed: East slopes with continuation to Father Dyer Date Climbed: September 18, 2004  Sucess!

Climbed Helen, Father Dyer and Crystal Peak on a beautiful Fall day. Helen's east slopes are simple and relentless. Ridge to Father Dyer is rugged and fun. Helen makes a great early season training climb.

Great corn day. I've also climbed this peak in the summer, but I don't remember a date.
