following our (gcap and lutty) decision to abort a Liberty Bell attempt due to weather. A simple couloir route, but nice views.
uneventful slog up the sw couloir. attempted Beckey on Liberty, but snowing and too cold. beautiful area. with lutty and vertigo soul.
Cruised up the South Arete for the final summit in a 5 summit link up. Nice easy way to the top.
2011 via the SW Couloir with Moni
2003 via the SW Couloir with Martin Cash
1995 via the S Arete with Monica & Tanya Spicker
1993 via the SW Couloir solo (as in "alone")
1982 via the S Arete with Jim Spearman & Paul Bishop
1979 via the SW Couloir with Monica Spicker
SW Couloir - solo a couple of times, South Arete with a nice variation on the South Face making the route far more interesting at 5.8, East Buttress Direct, Early Winters Couloir.
With AAI course. Lots of fun, especially the traverse below the summit.
Beautiul summit. We climbed to the top twice on a perfect Saturday. The first time was via the South Arête, and the second via the couloir variation of the SW Rib route. Four stars for the position and incredible views.
did the 5.10b variation... so sick!
Fun climb with Maryanne.
It was a beautiful day and a great climb. I really loved it and want to go back. Just watch out for those goats if you stash gear... they are little crazy
Climbed this on a side trip to Washington Pass after an Alpine Ice class on Mt. Baker. Fun climb!
I climbed these in August in 1996 - fun routes, but a bit crowded. Hate to see what they are like now.
Climbed with 3 others for my first rock climb. Great trip in excellent weather. The friction move 10 feet up and the chimney exit were challenges for me but not too bad.
Took the direct start, fun long climb, took two #4 Camalots, only used one and could have gone without it. Down climbed the south arete making for a nice little loop.
Fun. A good route in a spectacular setting.
Gorgeous day, beautiful views, fun climb. Hope to return soon for more climbing. Overall, a great area to climb and photograph.
Great fun climb. As we were climbing up there was an avalanche in the gully down to the hairpin turn, which made descending down the gully interesting.
Fun, easy climb. First climb I did in the Washington Pass area.
My first multi pitch rock climb. Lots of fun. The mosquito's sucked!
Had a fun time on this one. The rock climbing was easy--just right for beginners--and the approach was beautiful. We saw several moutain goats along the way.
