Awesome Route  Sucess!

Fantastic route. Ice step was a waterfall, so we were forced to take the left side.

Right Ice Headwall  Sucess!

Took right ice variation with Eric, Tian and Jeffrey. Good Mazamas outing. The headwall was in good shape and took a solid rope length. Great lead by Jeff.

AAI Alpine Ice Class

Climbed the North Ridge as part of an AAI Alpine Ice Class. Storm blew up while we were partway up the crux around 9600' and we had to retreat. Otherwise a really nice climb, which I hope to do unguided (and successfully!) in the not too distant future.

Climbed with esugi  Sucess!

Beautiful climb. First time for me, second for him and definately see why people consider it a classic. 7 screws brought, with two pickets and a fluke which was nice.

Northridge in a day  Sucess!

Climbed from car (trailhead) to the summit and back in 18 hours. Very slow go due to variable white out conditions on the glacier.

Ice pitches were fantastic and the scenery was unbelievable. Great time with good partners. Must do route in the cascades if you're into alpine climbing.

Brought 10 screws and used 5 on route, 2 each at top and bottom belay stations. Also used pickets for running belay across steep traverse slopes.
