Perfect Weather, Gib Ledges were in "less than favorable" conditions.

Emmons  Sucess!

Climbed the Emmons from Camp Schurman with a group guided by IMG. Very lucky with the weather window; it was overcast and foggy both the night before and the afternoon afterwards. As we climbed the clouds rose with us, making the descent very slow in soft snow and low visibility.

2 Day Emmons  Sucess!

Changed our itinerary from a 3 day to a 2 day climb due to bear activity in Glacier Basin. Great conditions with the route still intact. On top there was no wind and sunny skies. Camp Sherman still had some space open on bare rock. All members of the Moutaineer party summited. One or two had very mild altitude sickness symptoms. Pictures:

Almost doesn't count...

My first experience at double-digit altitude. I recovered a mild bout of AMS 6 hours too late to head up with the summit team. I learned a lot and will be back next year.

Check!  Sucess!

I lead some friends and my friends dad to the top! Great practice roping up, tying prusiks, self arresting. Awesome peak! Went up Disappointment cleaver and hit 50/60mph winds at the top. blew us around a bit, but a beautiful peak.

A Big Mountain  Sucess!

First time attempting the peak. Drove from SLC with Duc and met some peeps in Boise for the carpool there. We started from Paradise late (1pm), slept for <4 hours at Camp Muir, before starting the summit push at 1:15am. We topped out at 8:15 after some waiting at the headwall and slow going higher up due to fatigue. A guided client had a seizure or something near teh headwall above the Cleaver so we got to see the rescue. We got back to Paradise by 5 thanks to the awesome glissade down the Muir Snowfield.

DC  Sucess!

Near full moon lit up the glacier with a nice purple glow. Straightforward route, but lots of traffic. Would like to try out one of the other routes someday.
