Sulphide - SE Rib  Sucess!

The Sulphide had several open crevasses; we jumped a couple, but went around one as it appeared quite open. The weather was great and we left high camp at 4:30 am with just our base layer. We climbed the SE rib and hit the summit about 8:30 am. We down climbed the gulley. There were only 2 other people on the mountain so we had a lot of time to relax on top.
Beautiful mountain that I had been wanting to climb for quite a few years.

Beautiful day. Satisfying climb  Sucess!

Camped below the glacier. Beautiful summit day. Summit pyramid was a breeze on dry rock

Cruxin' on Shuksan  Sucess!

Sick alpine route with a mellow glacier hike. Would recommend taking a rope up the gully, downclimbing that was pretty sketchy.

AAI May 2011

Went to the mountain with AAI as part of a course, but couldn't summit due to avalanche danger. We were hearing avalanches all around camp on the col for most of the week we were there. Still an absolutely beautiful experience though!

With Mountain Madness  Sucess!

Nice ascent, weather was just wonderful.

Ski ascent/descent - solo  Sucess!

The undulating nature of the Sulphide made a lot of puting on/taking off of skins.

Avalanche Danger

Stopped at lower campsite due to avalnche possibility. Good thing too - climber was killed on Rainier the same weekend in similar conditions.

Incredible Beauty  Sucess!

Had beautiful weather. The line we followed up the gully was consistent 4th class with some 3d class and a few low class 5 moves. We found a 2d class final section left of the gully to the top. On descent,we found a 3d class route with plenty of 4th class. Views from anywhere in the vicinity of this peak are hard to believe.

First Cascade Climb  Sucess!

Sulphide route was a great intro climb. Had to "leap" across a "crevasse" (...step across a crack). Got hit by my first rock (don't worry, I'm fine). Dumb United Airlines lost my luggage, so had to climb using an entirely borrowed set of gear (shocking, no blisters, thanks jay/mike). This is a sweet climb, highly recommended.

Gorgeous Mountain  Sucess!

Easy glacier climb, fun scramble at the top. Beautiful views throughout.

Sulfide Glacier  Sucess!

My first ever alpine route. I learned quite a bit from my AAI guide Evan Stevens. We bivyed at around 7500' under the shadow of Baker....amazing view! Got up early the next morning and summited around 1100 with great weather. Summit pyrimid snow slope was a great climb and the final 200 or so feet on the rock ridge offered incredible views down the other side of the mountain. Postholing back down in soft snow was tiring. Great time. I'd like to go back now and climb via Price Glacier sometime.

2002 - I think  Sucess!

Friend, Mitch, and I climbed upper route in near white out conditions but did summit. . . added a little adventure to the straight forward Sulphide Route. . . but you should still do your research regarding this route if intending to climb. . . unforseens happen on all routes.

OSAT 1996?  Sucess!

A small group of us climbed the Sulphide in the summer of 1997 or 1997(?). It was a beautiful weekend, and the gully didn't seem nearly as intimidating as the write-ups indicated. We didn't have any party-inflicted rockfall. On our descent someone was working up the gully with full belays, but for most people getting up this far on the mountain that won't be necessary.
