Try to find a partner on cascadeclimbers.com. Include your resume of similar 4,000 meter peaks you've climbed, courses you've completed, etc.

While monitoring the weather, do a solo route along the DC, then just follow the footprints upon your return. Watch for whiteouts and ice worms.

Soloing big, glaciated peaks is not considered 'safe'.
