Tibial Plateau  Sucess!

Fantastic climb, right up until a torso sized boulder broke free and smoked my tibial plateau.

Direct North Ridge  Sucess!

Ingalls Lake, Goat Pass, Lower Ridge - Upper Ridge with Gendarme, descend CC. We found it to be demanding but great!

Awesome trip! complete NR  Sucess!

Great climb with Jonah- what an ass kicking long approach from Esmeralda Basin. we carried 7 L of water thinking of dry summer- as did 4 other parties we talked to- didn't did to have- water was flowing from the calving glaciers.
Climb is awesome, we ended up sleeping a pitch higher than gendarme on small ledge- worked out great.
Thanks Jonah- you're a rock star!

Excellent Route  Sucess!

Approched via Ingalls lake where we camped. Down CC. LONG day back to Ingalls lake after going all the way to the bottom of the CC after missing the traverse.

full ridge, 5.9, 16 hours car to car  Sucess!

With Seth. Six hours to approach in ice climbing boots. Glad we had crampons for the glacier but would have rather taken a trekking pole instead of an ice tool. Four hours to climb the ridge via the two short 5.9 pitches. Six horrible hours down the CC.

Northridge + bivy  Sucess!

Hike in from Ingalls lake to Goat Pass, across the Stuart Glacier and up the entry couloir. Bivy just below the Gendarme. Next day, we did the standard variation (minus Gendarme) up to the summit and long and painful descent down the Cascadian. Cascadian should be called the sucks!
Kevin and I decided we would never descend the cASScadian ever again. Otherwise a kick ass climb up to 5.7 with our packs on.
