Sulphide  Sucess!

New to SP, just signing all the logs. We had the mt to ourselves on the Sulphide. Beautiful mt.

Mount Shuksan - SE Rib  Sucess!

Even now in August the snow started very low in the valley at about 4,000, and the Sulfide Glacier was in early spring conditions. The gully was full of rotten snow, so we took the SE Rib, which we were told was mostly 5.4. I only had a dozen pieces of pro, and the route I ended up taking on climbers right was more like 5.7-5.8, but the rock was unbelievably solid.

Sulfide Glacier - Southeast Rib  Sucess!

One day ascent, 15.5 hours car to car. Steep ice on the summit pyramid forced us off of the standard route and onto the southeast rib. The rib involved some exposed Class 4 which we chose to rappel in 3 pitches on the descent.

SE Rib  Sucess!

Summited via the SE Rib, a 5.6 climb, but the snow was so deep we walked over the 5.6 part.

Sulfide Glacier

Nice trip up with Alpine Ascents... didn't get to Summit though due to the weather and avalanche danger.

Fisher Chimneys Attempt

After getting to lake Ann I could see clouds coming in the horizon, which to me was the first sign of trouble. As we ascended towards the Fisher Chimneys it became a huge black cloud wall with the sunrise, I knew by now that a storm was coming in. After being belayed up a rock section I could tell that the snow was not as solid as I had hoped. When I got on the snow my crampons got caught on my prussik cord from behind and I nearly tripped down the mountain. It was in that very second that I knew that it would be a bad idea for me to continue, plus I felt like someone should accompany Eric (he got sketched out) for the descend to the car. When we got to the car it was raining like blazes, and I knew that Sebash and Ski were going through a epic adventure...

Fisher Chimneys  Sucess!

Day hiked with Eric, Josh and Sebastian. Ended up summitting somehow in a storm with Sebas. Descended via the White Salmon Glacier- big mistake. Nearly killed by rockfall, got lost at the bottom of the glacier, ended up following some mysterious flagging on random trees to the ski resort. 17 hours car to car.

North Face Route

Started at 5:00 am from the saddle. The technical part of the North Face was great. Soon after finishing the North Face the rain started. Camped on the way up, traversed the Pyramid and return via Hourglass and Fishers Chimneys

Finally, and by Fisher Chimneys  Sucess!

One of my most satisfying climbs ever! Finally returned to what may be the most scenic mtn in the country after two previous attempts. Having been a Bellinghamster and skiied the Baker ski area, I've always felt a special draw to Shuksan. A great spot camping high above Fisher Chimneys with great friends, great weather, and few people during the middle of the week. I think the Fisher Chimneys are harder to scramble than the pyramid, but others may disagree.

Failed Fisher Chimneys

It was late in the season and also went up the wrong gully. I look at this as a scouting trip for next season.

Epic Day  Sucess!

We were on this mountain for nineteen hours straight...I did pretty well for my first really Alpine experience on the Fisher Chimney route, getting to lead our group across the Upper Curtis Glacier and the Sulphide Glacier, all the way to the summit. On the descent, however, I stupidly went ahead of our group because I was worried about my then-gf down at base canp, and got myself cliffed out and couldn't climb back up to the route, so I had to wait for my team leader to get down low enough and toss me a rope. My worst ever mistake in the mountains!
