If you need a partner or another one let me know. Would love to nail those peaks! I could take off a week in August.
How did you know that all of these mountains are on my list as well! Joking, but you have a nice list of cascade classics. God I love to climb around here! I would add Eldorado, Forbidden, and Buckner if you haven't already climbed them.
If you don't know about this, I highly recommend you climb Mt St Helens on mother's day. I'm not sure how the tradition got started exactly, but the men (and the women too are now getting in on the tradition) climb the mountain in dresses. Some very formal (I saw some prom dresses last time) ... some less so (people wearing garters, hiking boots ... and little else).
It is a lot of fun and really festive on the top.
Looks like I just missed it this time around. Not sure what the heck I'd wear. I don't even wear dresses at sea-level!
