  1. Sad news coming

    Two more climbers reported dead this morning. A pair from Utah was swept away in an Avalanche above the Ruth. Story: http://www.adn.com/outdoors/story/8903007p-8802964c.html A team of three climbers whom I know well has been on Denali for three weeks. These climbers from South Whidbey Island have decided to descend because of continuing high winds on the summit and below normal temps. I met Mizuki at Mountaineer events, and am also very sad to lose her.
  2. Glasses found in Enchantments

    Small pair of prescription glasses found by Inspiration Lake, Enchantments, on 8-15. Email to claim.
  3. Sorry to see this in the Everett Herald today. http://www.heraldnet.com/stories/06/05/20/100loc_b2hiker001.cfm Larry was a great mountaineer who gave a tremendous amount to the club. As a fellow Everett Mountaineer, I am saddened and stunned by this accident. The side of Lewis Peak is one long slippery slope.
  4. The less respected dangers of climbing

    Luckily, many of us can report stories like this because we survived. This story just out-- http://www.heraldnet.com/stories/06/05/20/100loc_b2hiker001.cfm about the fatal fall a couple days ago by Larry Ingalls, a well known prominent member of the Everett Mountaineers. I would post this as a new story, but I can't, as a lurker I guess. Larry was a great mountaineer who gave a tremendous amount to the club. As a fellow Everett Mountaineer, I am saddened and stunned by this accident. The side of Lewis Peak is one long slippery slope. I am sorry that Larry found it so...
  5. Shasta acclimization...

    If you want to avoid the crowds, climb Shasta via Horsecamp and then to the Northwest up the valley between Shasta and Shastina. There are plenty of good camps that way and you can easily get there on Saturday. Horsecamp is a zoo. Above the Shastina saddle, it is good climbing over the Cascade Glacier, and then you re-connect with the mob coming up Avalanche Gulch. Have Fun!
