Sulphide  Sucess!

Great weather. Dry rock all the way to the summit. As an aside, to illustrate the truth of the statement in the overview: When I was in Kathmandu to do a trek to Everest, the lobby of the guest house I stayed in had a huge wall size photograph of a mountain on the wall facing the check-in. Was it Everest? No. It was Shuksan! True story.

I lead a Seattle Mountaineers Climb of the Price Glacier  Sucess!

Six climbers if I remember correctly. Some serious ice climbing with just a 31" ice axe in those days. We all made it three days. Total endeavor was spectacular.

Shuksan North Face  Sucess!

Great climb with 5000 feet exposure on great snow. A day in, a day climbing, and a day out.

Suphide Gl.

Shuksan attempt on skis. Day trip via Suphide glacier. By the time we got to the summit pyramid, the snow was way too soft to climb it safely. Awesome day.

Amazing Place  Sucess!

Rained overnight... got up twice to check the sky. At 8:00 AM we decided to hike from lower camp to glacier to see if weather would improve... just kept on going with clearing skies and puffy clouds. NO ONE ELSE ON ROUTE!

Sulphide!  Sucess!

Still my favorite summit view to date. Perfect weather and the summit to ourselves. Wish we could've spent more time up there.

Sulphide Glacier  Sucess!

Scramble up the gulley was a lot of fun! Great views all around. Had to hurry out of there because thunderstorms and rain were incoming.

Can't believe Matt didn't have crampons  Sucess!

Climbed in two days via Sulphide with Matt Lemke and Don Nguyen with Josh turning back early due to an old RMI. Don lapped us while we nervously kicked steps on the summit pyramid. We knew what we had got ourselves into and I wasn't looking forward to the descent on steep ice. Somehow we survived the folly and the rest of the day went fine and slushy. Except for the falling over 100 times on skis with a heavy pack part. and the avalanche. those parts sucked. But hey, great view. I highly recommend BRINGING CRAMPONS and knowing how to ski before hand, unless you want to be awesome like us.

Sulphide Glacier Ski  Sucess!

What an incredible climb! I did the summit pyramid (AI 2 at the time) without crampons...although this isn't advised. Incredible summit view above all the low clouds.

MM Course  Sucess!

Sulfide Glacier Route. Got technical on the summit pyramid, but was well worth all of the effort. Great experience

Fisher Chimney Variation  Sucess!

Fisher Chimneys in 2 days, with a 5.4 variation over the ridge on the right side of the route as it ascends Winnie's Slide. Awesome.. just damn incredible.

Sulphide  Sucess!

Crevasses are opening up and the route will be tough to climb in a few weeks.

Chimneying with a side of Freedom  Sucess!

Had a blast on the Fisher's Chimneys route to ring in independence day. Fun route to solo; a bit wonky in mountaineering boots.

What a monster  Sucess!

Wow - all I can say after tackling the most technically challenging LONG summit day of summer 2015. 4:45am departure from Lake Ann, 6:30pm arrival time back at camp. Chimney's are juggy and fun, but a workout. Winnie's Slide was some crampon toe pointing and axe swinging (necessary rappel downclimb). Plenty of pro in the places you needed it on the summit pyramid - probably 25 people up top by the time we got there. Nothing blown out just yet with respect to cracks

Amazing Climb  Sucess!

awesome climb with a ton of variation. A lot of crevasses severely limited our route choices but we got there eventually. Down climbing and lowering in the Chimneys had its moments but overall a great intermediate level climb. We did it in two days which was ambitious but good to be home.
