  1. Trip: Mt. Thompson - west ridge Date: 8/14/2011 Trip Report: 7.6 mile and 4.5 hour hike to ridge lake where we camped. Next morning was rainy and foggy but cleared up on the 1.6 mile hike to base. 4 hour rock climb to summit and back to the car at 10:30 pm for a 12 hour day. Plenty of snow crossings still. trekking poles or ice axe recommended. https://picasaweb.google.com/dooitup1/MountThompsonClimb_aug2011?authuser=0&authkey=Gv1sRgCNGgpc-UxcvxvAE&feat=directlink Gear Notes: small rack to 3 inches
  2. [TR] Mount Baker - North Ridge 7/11/2009

    the problem for us was that the freezing level hadnt been below 13000 feet in probably a couple weeks so we were bottom out our ice axes in a lot of areas near crevasses. If we start getting some normal frezing levels it will be a lot safer crossing the glaciers. once you get to the ridge it should be nice.

    We just had a go of this this weekend. Well we knew it was too warm but we went and checked it out. Got part way on the coleman by 5am and the conditions were afternoon like so we went back to camp. Here are the pictures:

  7. Climb: Mt. Rainier-liberty ridge Date of Climb: 5/19/2006 Trip Report: Liberty ridge trip report 5/19-5/21-2006 Chris Cosgriff and Andy Mason Friday morning at 10:00 am we left Ipsut creek campground with big packs, skis and AT boots for a liberty ridge climb. Had we known the snow level was 3000’ higher and 6 miles away we would have left the skis at home. We had to be 60 pounds plus for our planned 4 day adventure. Our 7200’ camp plans were changed to Dick Creek camp at about 4000’. Nice outfit! On the way to Dick Creek we ran into Momma and her 2 cubs! We finally hit snow at 5200’ at the creek crossing. We were able to skin from here to 8000’. First full view was breathtaking, or was it because our loads made us breathe hard? 7200’ camp Andy heading up the carbon. It is in good shape until you get up to about 8600 and start heading west to the base of liberty. Here you encounter some very small snow bridges and rotten snow at the base. At about 10000’ the weather turned bad and we gave up our thumb rock plans. Gaining the ridge on frozen cat litter was the crux and then we had to down climb it. I would give the route another week or two and then the crevasses would be difficult to navigate. We witnessed several large avalanches over the 24 hours we were there. The warm weather has caused a lot of activity. We started at 5:30 am and got back to the car at 9pm pretty beat.
