Good Times  Sucess!

Great climb on a sunny weekday afternoon with 3 buddies. No other groups on the climb. Fun route, great to have so close to Seattle.

First Alpine Route

Climbed the Tooth as my first alpine trad route in June 2009. Conditions were sunny as can be with snow the whole way on the approach.

The best advice i can provide for this route is to rappel ASAP or you will be sitting on top for a long time.

Fun first time route and easy climbing.

2006 (Winter)

Despite being cold and dark, the approach felt strong and the climbing went well. But between having to brush snow off of every hold and being a few days past the shortest day of the yrear, we ran out of time before the last pitch and bailed.

2004  Sucess!

I remember that Mt St Helens was having some steam eruptions that week, but despite being a clear day it was too far to see anything.

South Face  Sucess!

Cloudy but it started to clear when we reached the top. Only one other party on the climb ahead of us.

Pineapple Pass  Sucess!

A man in a glider kept buzzing us. Very cool

Multiple routes  Sucess!

South Face, West Face, East Face (winter), NE Slab (winter). Loved to speed solo the South Face. PR of 2:15 car to car, considerably slower than the standing record of 1:58.

South Face  Sucess!

Certainly a fun route but there were six other parties on the route and coming from AK I'd never experienced anything like that before.

Good day trip

Fun route with all exposed parts being easily protected.

Beautiful day  Sucess!

The third sunny and hot day in a row for the Seattle area made sense for a run out of town for some cool alpine climbing. Only one party of two ahead of us, and one party of two behind us. A free soloist came up in between the us and the party ahead, jammed up, jammed down and was on his way. Great views from the top. The way out was slippery and sloppy from all the sunshine, but still a lot of fun.

locals favorite  Sucess!

Who wouldn't like the short drive, moderate rock and great view?

South Face  Sucess!

Climbed this too many times to count. Usually solo, doing up to 4 laps including downclimbing. Very good training especially if you climb the 1 pitch chossy alpine gully before the Pineapple pass approach. There's about 3 lines on the face so you can mix it up on each lap. If there's a bunch of Mounties, just treat them as an objective hazard.

First "real" climb ever  Sucess!

Went as part of a Washington Alpine Club climbing school outing led by Pat O'Brien. WAC is a great group for anyone in the Seattle area... but in CA for the past 20+ years, but I hope that WAC is still going strong!

Winter fun  Sucess!

South ridge was the consolation prize when the NE face wasn't in good conditions. Fun times with sqwirll.

Icy Route  Sucess!

Ice was forming in the route. Great times. Good intro climb to the Cascades.

South Face  Sucess!

Climbed it for the first time a few years ago, fun quick climb.

June is the new May  Sucess!

perfect weather, snow from Alpental to pineapple pass (which allowed us to use the winter approach route), and some warm granite made this climb a good one. I went up with the Mountaineers and my partner and I made the summit in about 4.5 hours.
