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.

First multipitch climb

This was my first multipitch climb, when I was fourteen. We didn't get to the top but it got me hooked.

Great climb, even though there were a couple of other groups they made the climb enjoyable.

Tooth  Sucess!

Cool second climb in late fall. Inspired by supermarmot and Mr. "I have to go to EMT class." Should've shown up earlier though -- waiting in line is not fun!

Winter ascent!  Sucess!

Motivated by a slideshow on mountaineering by Jim Donini the week before, attempted the Tooth in winter. And yes, this was my first ever multi-pitch summit. Beautiful day after a nice still night camped at piss pass. Found out after-the-fact this was my buddy's first time leading trad. Rapped off in the dark after a brilliant sunset.

Route Climbed: South Face  Sucess!

Great day to climb The Tooth. Beautiful weather, surprisingly few people on the route. We decided to take the flakes directly up on the last pitch rather than take the catwalk. There sure is a lot of gear stuck on this mountain...I saw at least 3 cams and a few nuts.

Isn't this EVERYONE's first multi-pitch rock route? Thanks to my friends for taking me up it and giving me confidence in them and in rapelling! First time was with Bob and Sally, Terri P and Chris.

Crossing the talus field is no fun -- do the climb in the early spring!

Great climb! Not a single other person on the route the whole day, thanks to the deceiving overcast sky in seattle.(not a cloud in the sky at the pass). Climbed with Supermarmot, see below. Had to run that last 1.5 miles of the snow lake trail to get back to town in time for EMT class :)

south face  Sucess!

had an excellent time! there were clouds in the valleys (and more importantly, in seattle) so we had the route to ourselves the whole day! i think i even managed a sunburn!

South Face  Sucess!

Took the girlfriend up for her first trad and multipitch climb. The route was great and the hardest part was the approach for sure. There were only two downsides to the trip. The first was that there were three people soloing the route which made the girlfriend quite nervous and the second was the we kept being attacked by the state bird of washington, the dreaded giant mosquitoes.

Good Stuff  Sucess!

Great climb with TC. Crux was the ankle breaking talus approach. Route was very straightforward but quite enjoyable. Lessons learned:
1. A 60-meter rope WILL (just barely) make it to the second belay station so you can combine the first 2 pitches
2. Double-rope rappels were probably more trouble than they were worth because the route isn't steep enough to toss the ropes far enough. They just keep getting stuck on the numerous ledges. Next time I'll leave the second rope at home.
3. Climb this one before the talus minefield melts out!

Still, a great afternoon in the hills!

Climbed with the fun stuff. Sprained ankle on descent, but cooler temps kept the skitters under control at our Source Lake camp. Beer leftovers for breakfast, excellent!

South Face  Sucess!

A nice climb on a beautiful day. We parked in the upper Alpental lot, and traversed along the bottom of the Alpental ski area before heading left up the gully near Source Lk. One picket was used to protect the third pitch. The other three pitches were dry.
