Mock Guide  Sucess!

Mock Guided Ryan up this. Practiced specifically time management and significant work/rest cycle planning. Ryan is a hip replacement patient who has been walking / hiking since his surgery in May. Risk Management and guiding through the boulder field was a core focus as well. Excellent Summit. Started at 1:00 to avoid hiking in the heat. Night navigation was pretty straight forward and it was a beautiful sun rise atop the Volcano. Notables: first time in my career getting permit checked by an NPS ranger. Felt nice to be prepared. Maps were good. GAIA was excellent and the planning and research of the route went really well. Looking forward to finishing a summer of Mock Guiding so I can do it for real next year! Got to lightly use my WFR training with a member of a different party headed up. Showed signs of Dehydration / Heat Exhaustion / AMS and advised she turn back if symptoms continued in the next hour without relief. Promoted extra hydration and electrolytes as a start point. Really great to be ready for these types of things. I LOVE MY JOB!

Mount St. Helens

Quick day hike up to the summit with perfect weather a few days before attempting Rainier.

Beautiful Day!  Sucess!

Monitor Ridge. Got our permit via the lottery in Jan/Feb.

Started at 5:45 a.m., by time out of woods we were in clouds a bit, but they burned off quickly. Stellar views of Adams & Hood & Jefferson during ascent, great view of Rainier from summit.

Only 3 other people besides myself traversed the rim to the true summit which surprised me.

Up in 5 hours, down in 3.

One note is that gloves may not be necessary; we brought but did not use them. YMMV.

We brought almost 200 oz of water each and drank almost all of it -- would have done if it were as hot as at had been earlier in the week.

Worm Flows  Sucess!

Skinned until I wasn't getting good purchase even with ski crampons. Put the skis on my pack and booted up from there. Fun walk over to the true summit and a great run all the way back down.

Last weekend in the PNW  Sucess!

Climbed via the worm flows route with Maddie. It was the sunniest and warmest day of the year so far, which made for a slushy descent. Views up top were worth it though. Now off to the desert again!

Worm Flows  Sucess!

I underestimated both how hard this would be, and how much I'd enjoy it. It was awesome. Trip report here.

Worm Flows  Sucess!

Great Outing! First snow climb for Michelle and I. Boots and crampons felt great. Summited in 5:30 hours, 8:45 hours car to car. Deep snow for the entirety.

A much shorter trip down  Sucess!

Hauled the Lib Tech to the top, which took way too long, but I think we made it from the summit to the car in about 45 minutes. The snow was pretty good, especially at the top. Smooth and fresh cascade June "powder". 1997 was a good year.

Quick trip  Sucess!

Climbed too quick and too early, waited around from 4:30 until daylight approximately 300ft below the crater cornice. Socked in summit, great glissading and break in between the clouds.
