Challenging Fun  Sucess!

Made it to the Summit with Alpine Ascents. A fun climb. Plan on returning this summer and next spring to train for bigger challenges.

Food Poisoning on the Summit!  Sucess!

Got food poisoning while descending and chucked all my food/h2o at the top of dissapointment cleaver...Good times.

Great weather  Sucess!

Climbed Ingraham Direct with Mitch Barrie, Doc Chuck and KT. Great weather, no wind and warm temps. Fantastic view. What a difference from the previous year. The moon lit the way, ladder somewhere on ID and watching dawn approaching while merging routes above the DC were some of the highlights. Temps got so warm our Axes punched right through some of the snow-bridges on our descent.

"The" Mountain.   Sucess!

Climbed with a group from idaho state university. I wanted to climb this for years. It was very spiritual for me:

Winter Attempt

Excellent but cold weather conditions (rare!).
Terrible snow up high on Gib Ledges- final chute was an avalanche waiting to happen. Turned around as a group, confident that we had made the right decision. So close...

Next Time

Climbed with AAI and raised $5,000 for the Climb to Fight Breast Cancer. Turned around at 12.7k on the Emmons Route...not my day.

Mt. Rainier  Sucess!

Ascent via the Emmons Glacier. Crux was navigating through the crevasses in the dark. Ended up doing a high traverse beneath the bergshrund. Conditions were perfect -- long-sleeve t-shirt and a shell were all the layers needed until arriving at the saddle. Saw a bear in hiking out.

The big one for WA  Sucess!

Finally climbed this one after two previous attempts. The one that got me into climbing in the first place, looking at a 14K snow-covered mountain from sea level in the middle of summer. Have since climbed it two more times (DC twice, Emmons once). Have also attempted the Kautz but got weathered off.

DC Route  Sucess!

Climbed Rainier during very clear weather, but scorching temperatures down low. Beautiful peak, great experience.

Thanks Rainier  Sucess!

Climbed Rainier via Emmons and 2 attempts on the Tahoma. Beautiful mountain, awesome and incredible.

DC  Sucess!

Climbed the DC route this summer. It was awesome, had a great time

DC route  Sucess!

Drove down to the Longmire parking lot from Vancouver in the evening, hiked up to Camp Muir the following day, left the hut around 2:30 for a slow slog up the DC route. Off track in the cleaver following a group ahead of us which wasted some time, by still a slow summit by 10:30. Back to the hut, nap for a couple hours, hike back to the parking lot, and drive back to Vancouver by about 1am. Impressive glaciers!

60hrs Round Trip

Saw a weather window open so did the climb from NYC in 60hrs round trip. A new record? ;-)
DC route...quite the slog.

Lucky to live so close...  Sucess!

Left Muir at 3:30am after coming back down due to sick climber but was on the summit by 9:00am. In a trance...

Ingraham Direct up and DC down.

Slept on top  Sucess!

Summited with AlexeyD (my then 16-year old son). Don't remember the exact date. Camped at Ingram Flats - (beautifull), acclimatized, and then summited and spent the night in the crater (planned) - very neat experience.
