Various  Sucess!

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.

Twice in a Day  Sucess!

Beautiul summit. We climbed to the top twice on a perfect Saturday. The first time was via the South ArĂȘte, and the second via the couloir variation of the SW Rib route. Four stars for the position and incredible views.

South Arete  Sucess!

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

South Arete  Sucess!

Climbed this on a side trip to Washington Pass after an Alpine Ice class on Mt. Baker. Fun climb!

South Arete and Direct East Buttress  Sucess!

I climbed these in August in 1996 - fun routes, but a bit crowded. Hate to see what they are like now.

South Arete  Sucess!

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.

SW Rib  Sucess!

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.

South Arete  Sucess!

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.

South Arete  Sucess!

Fun, easy climb. First climb I did in the Washington Pass area.

South Arete  Sucess!

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.
