Atypical rain summer 2015

Shuksan is going to make me earn it ... multiple weeks of near drought conditions met our 2 day climbing plans last weekend with constant / consistent rain, making the first chimney (full of wet vegetation) a risk not worth taking. Round two end of month hopefully ...

superb trip  Sucess!

It took 4 days, but the final 600' scramble was SO worth all the effort.

We made it!

Fischer Chimneys/SE Rib  Sucess!

Great route! Primo conditions on Winnies slide and Hell's Highway. Definitely finish on the SE Rib......great, mellow simul-climbing with fun exposure and outstanding views. Watch out for the mounties rappelling down the gully! Party of 12 kicking rocks and shouting at each other. We unroped and blew past them as quickly as possible. Fun stuff

Fisher Chimneys, sort of  Sucess!

After getting off route, I slogged up the ridge next to the White Salmon Glacier on the way up, intersecting the correct route near the top of the glacier. Taking the proper route on the way down was much easier and more fun. A mellow day on a nice-looking mountain. Trip report.

Sulphide Glacier  Sucess!

Couldn't ask for better conditions! At night the temps were in the mid 50s at high camp. Sky was a little hazy from all the forest fires. We climbed the SE ridge and might have gotten a little off course, because we ran into some 5.7-5.8ish moves.

8800 ft

The problems started when they had sold out the permits. We had to camp low and I couldn't talk anyone into getting an early start. Having not been there we had no idea how long it would take to hike up. By the time we got to the pyramid, folks were coming down. We scrambled up the central gully to 8800 ft but were continuously dodging rocks from climbers rappelling down. After I got hit on the head with a rock I decided to bag a summit attempt. I must say though, it was was beautiful up there and I will go back next year and climb the S.E. Rib. I'll also procure my permit a little earlier. Well worth the hike, but mine turned into a scouting mission.

Fishers Chimneys  Sucess!

Two-day adventure with excellent Mt. Baker Mountain Guides John and Jenni Minier. Camped at the "Eagle's Nest." Loved the upper Curtis Glacier, Hell's Highway and the approach to the summit pyramid. What a terrific varied hike - it offers some of everything and then some. Quite the day when you summit and then come out all the way back to Austin Pass TH. IVD

Fisher Chimneys  Sucess!

Great route, couldn't find the chimneys going up, which made for a spicy variation. The upper Curtis glacier was a bit icy making our extra ice tool a great asset as well as a few ice screws.

08/23/13 via Fisher Chimneys and SE rib and descended the Sulfide Glacier Route. 5 1/2 hours from TH to top of whinny side. From there 3hr 20 mins to summit. 4 1/2 hours from summit sulfide glacier TH

Got stuck behind a big traffic jam at 8,800 ft on the Southeast Rib and had to turn back...will be back next summer!

Sulphide Glacier + SE Rib solo  Sucess!

8hrs car to car (on 3hrs of sleep), the DAY AFTER doing two peaks and over 6500' of elevation gain in the Enchantments. SE Rib was fun, with about 3 sections each of 5.4 and Class 4. Downclimbed the standard gully.

Beautiful but no summit

The mixture of ice, snow and rock made it a real struggle that was a little much for us this time. I might want to redo this in August.

Lake Ann trail from mount baker ski area up the fischer chimneys across the white salmon. Camped on the sulphide climbed via summit peak coulier. Awesome hike however sulphide glacier Shannon creek side is boring.

Sulfide Glacier  Sucess!

camped out at 6500', left camp for summit around 5:30AM, very clear day. Great views from the top, rappeled down. Overall great experience.

Beautiful mountain - can't say the same for the Shannon Ridge trail.

August 2012 glaciers - 4  Sucess!

Smiley and I met some of his friends for this climb, we camped near the pit toilet the first evening, roped up and climbed up the glacier in the morning, met lots of people coming down both on the snow and on the rock chute, where we had to wait some for them to pass on down. A nice scramble to the summit, of course great views of Baker, a little too hazy to see distant peaks. After returning to camp and having lunch, Smiley and I packed up and hiked back to the trail head, the rest spent a second night at camp.

soft snow  Sucess!

Via Sulphide glacier. Once we made it to the rockpile, we missed the route to the right of "Casper" and did some unprotected class 5 moves on the rock which made for some harrowing times.We rapped down from the summit, which was fun. The soft snow on the descent also made self arrest almost impossible and there were several areas with no runout. Be careful out there.
