Second attempt this year

Weather thwarted our attempt this time. Our tents were pelted with rain/snow mix for 12 hours straight at Camp Muir before we decided to call it off and head back to Paradise. White out conditions and avalanche danger were the biggest threats. Oh well, next time.

DC with RMI  Sucess!

Made it up the DC climbing with RMI for the Summit For Someone program. This is a new high point for me and was the most rewarding climb I have done yet.

Late season on the DC  Sucess!

Climbed this in Sept. '02 with John Reyher after finding out that the crevasses on both the Tahoma and Kautz were too open to climb. Really dry conditions so we didn't bother roping up until the descent, which really didn't make any sense. A wonderful adventure followed by a dinner of salmon and redhooks at Paradise.

DC rerouted onto Emmons  Sucess!

Great climb. DC route was unpassable up top due to a wide crevasse so the route went below the cleaver and up the Emmons.

Great Weather  Sucess!

Second try with IMG. First trip turned back by weather and high avalanche danger in June 2008. This time weather was great. Summitted via DC late int he day and descended to Ingraham flats that evening.

DC-Emmon Variation  Sucess!

Snowbridges were in bad shape on the DC route so we had to go around the Cleaver, down the Emmon and up.

DC Route  Sucess!

The mountain has wicked weather. On the way to Muir, we encountered extreme heat, then endured a huge thunderstorm with lightning during the night but then it cleared up just long enough for us to reach the summit. On the way down to Paradise, we had a snowstorm, then hail and finally a downpour. All in all, a fantastic trip and would do it all again!

Kautz Glacier  Sucess!

Fierce winds, but persistance paid off. Only a handful of parties summited.

White out above Camp Hazard

Was in the Kautz Ice chute when clouds, snow descended down to 12,000'. Waited to see if it would clear, did not. Rapping down on bollards. Watch out for the penetentis (spelling???)
