There is not a whole lot of things to say for traveling to the summit, so to make up for it I threw in plenty of eye candy. 8)
And of course as usual there is a gpx track, interactive map, and topo map for further showing the way.

Nice work on the Red Mountain page! While a mere bump in the summer, in the winter it becomes a good training peak and an excellent ski mountaineering peak.

Josh,

Nice work on the Cascadian Couloir page! Top notch work as always! While many alpinists denigrate the Cascadian Couloir as a miserable slog, it is an important page in that the route is easy to get lost on, and it is the best route to the summit of this otherwise formiddible peak for those lacking experience in technical rock climbing. It is also frequently used as a descent route.

It was my first route to the summit (trail ran it in 3 hours from the TH to summit) and I have descended it many times since. In early season it makes for a good basic snow climb and a great route to work out ice axe and crampon skills. Again, bravo on the excellent photography and maps and GPS tracks. Your pages are among the finest on SP. I promise when I am back to climbing (my doc made me promise not yet) I am going to drag you along to reclimb 'my routes' to properly document them.

When the Doc gives the OK, I would be more than happy to do all those routes! :D

By the way, very much appreciate what you said. 8) I have a few more pages that I gotta load up on maps, photos and route beta.
