Furher Finger, 1st glacier climb  Sucess!

The best time of my life. The finger was great, did it by moonlight. Was completely exhausted by the summit which was blowin' at over 60mph. Would I do it again? In a heartbeat!

Windy Summit  Sucess!

This was the first time I've climbed Ranier and it was unbelievable. We took the Emmons route and it was awesome weather the whole way. Summit day it got pretty windy on the way up and towards the top there were some scetchy spots but we made it. At the summit the winds were about 50 mph and almost took us out. All in all an experience I'll never forget and will probably do again.

Emmons Glacier

Took the Emmons with wife and friend. Turned around in the night on summit day because of bad weather and headed back to Camp Schurman.

DC Route  Sucess!

We heard rockfalling above the Cowlitz until about 11 pm that night. So we delayed our summit until it got a little colder. We left about 1 am and had a safe and uneventful climb. The snow/ice was good the whole way. It was warm on our return. It took 7 hours up and 4 hours down with plenty of time for breaks, pics, food, etc.

DC route  Sucess!

Summited at 10 am on a sunny and very hot day (t-shirt weather on top). Spectacular glaciers and views. Descent was uneventful in a good way as there were a lot of potential hazards due to the warmth.

Second summit on June 14th, 2009 via the DC again.

lots of climbs  Sucess!

4 climbs so far. 2 successful. the first was my first and uneducated glacier climb with my buddy. we are lucky nothing happened. we didn't know what we were doing...but we got some good pics. then a success the next year with the same guy. and again the following year with some fellow SP friends. and then a failure last weekend because a member of our party bit off more than he could chew and we had to turn around. oh well. back up in two weeks. done DC 3 times and emmons once. one more for emmons this month. then maybe a new one in august.

Emmons  Sucess!

First real Mountaineering feat! My best friend and I couldnt of had a better time! We did get a little cold sitting on the saddle waiting for the sun to come up. Great Mountain, and I want to go back!

DC in August - what fun!  Sucess!

Great weather and great summit. I climbed this peak with one partner, Ed, a good friend from the Sierra Club. It's nice to return home to Washington and get in a peak.

The ever changing DC route  Sucess!

Great route, except for the loose nasty DC itself. Reminded me of N. Maroon Peak in ways. The route seemed like it had to be altered by the hour due to lots of sun and melting bridges. Aboslutely gorgeous mountain! TR coming at some point.

Hats off to RMI for their wanding. That said, watch out for old wand that have not been removed.
