  1. Rainier Partner, would like a mentor :)

    Hay ive done MT.Rainier in the past on the disappointment cleaver Route and the Kuatz glacier route I have 3 summits of this mountain and have led/soloed on other Volcanos and mountains I can help you summit the DC route rainier is always a good summit because it changes so much with all the movement in the ice.

  4. Trip: Bellingham,WA - Raptor Ridge Repel,pursik over Chuckanut forest Date: 5/7/2013 Trip Report: with good weather the last few days and very little time to do much more due to my work I set off for the hills. Gear Notes: Green Trails map of the chuckanut foothills,2 60M Ropes,ATC, 4 Pursiks 1 tied Texas pursik style for comfort,4 locking carbiners.I like to have 2 pursiks for my harness with 2 main pursiks and one wrapped with . Approach Notes: There are about a dozen trails that take you up Raptor Ridge depending where your coming from. I will only tell you one.take the Interurban trail from Arroyo Park across the foot bridge take the Hemlock trail past Madrona View point and up to Raptor Ridge. the pursik up takes around 2.5 hours back up and 1.5 hours climbing at a good pace.

  9. Re: [TR] MT.Baker Up Shit Creek Solo With Out A Paddle - MT.Baker Colman Deming/Easton Date: 9/9/2012 Trip Report: sep 8 2012 Not to long after I got off the boat in Alaska I was really busy it had been a month or so since my last trip.I wanted to get out again so I thought with winter aproching fast and my busy sceduale I figured I would climb up the colman and decend the Easton I would be repeating a trip from last year only latter in the season with more open cravasses than my last time. I started out of base camp early but as I left Base camp I took off to the left when I should have took a stright shot up the glaicer to gain the hill top above only latter to be stoped by the jumble of broken ice around 150yds below the Black Butes. I decended back to base camp where I layed with my down jacket and naped around till 1:00AM.Annoyed with my self and determined to make a good trip out of a turn around I headed back up this time taking the correct route straight staying close to the Black Butes and latter making it up into the Col.At this point I'm feeling drained and crapy with every step my stomach turns I lean over on my ax suporting my head damn I have Alitude sickness. I know I can finish so I continued on step,step,step puke haha hay I have a rhythm this continued as I climbed higher.A guided AAI group follows not far behind with around 5 clients we climb together talk a little and top out I think she says it's her first year guiding nice climbing with a woman guide and shes hot what more can you ask for.Wemen and and a sea of snow covered mountains that go on for ever. I asked for info on the Easton glaicer route.down the opsite side she tells me theres a long truverse to get around a large cravase I weaved my way around,then a few others and to a small bergschrund.I seen it as a problem with the ice melting out under cutting the ice that would force me to jump a bit farther than I wanted too comfortably. I took a look around cravasses were everywhere there was no other way except reclimb back to the summit and crossing back.Or make the jump I looked my landing over readied my self.Damn if I could only take my pack off I thought but I couldn't because it was to steep my pack would slide into a cravasse. A rope would have helped in this situation how ever I didn't take one I went for it,then my ankle turned side ways in I herd a loud pop I fell to the hard Blue ice turning as I fell to avoid the cravasse at this point I was on my right side facing inches from a tinted Blue glazed cravasse wall I carefully stood up looking around in compleat denial of what had just happened. Fuck wait I thought how high are you I looked out at the Twin Sisters I'm above them then I looked over at MT.Rainier and into the cascade mountain range and back to the summit,it was no more than about 700 hundred feet above me.I was thinking to my self did you take them both out.I only felt one go but that don't mean nothing it happened so quick.Wait before you loose your mind get up and check both legs,first my left fine now my right.I screamed in pain oh god what the fuck. Again I looked around all the mountains seemed be magnified at that second.I sat down awkwardly to calm myself and figure out a plan I got it,there will be another person coming up soon I looked over the glaicer know one around except another AAI guided group far below in the red tents in Base camp. My friends had my iteniery but they didn't expect me back for another day.Then another thought I had talked to some one just days before about accidents in the mountains I remember him if you hurt a joint you only have so much time till it snow covered mountains.As we stood on the summit I asked for route info for the Easton glaicer she told me theres a large traverse around one the of the cravasses I made it around,weaved my way around a few others and to a small bergschrund.I seen it as a problem with the ice melting under cutting it that would force me to jump a bit farther than I wanted too comfortably. So I took a look around cravasses were everywhere there was no other way except reclimb back to the summit and crossing back.Or make the jump I looked my landing over readied my self.Damn if I could only take my pack off I thought,but I couldn't because it was to steep my pack would slide into a cravasse a rope would have helped in this situation how ever I didn't take one I went for it,then my ankle turned side ways in I herd a loud pop I fell to the hard Blue ice turning as I fell to avoid the cravasse at this point I was on my right side facing inches from a tinted Blue cravasse wall I carefully stood up looking around in compleat denial of what had just happened,fuck wait I thought how high are you I looked out at the twin sisters I'm above them then I looked over at MT.

I sat down awkwardly to calm myself and figure out a plan I got it,there will be another person coming up soon I looked over the glaicer know one around except another AAI guide group far below in there red tents in Base camp,my family and friends had my iteniery but they didn't expect me back for another day.Then another thought I had talked to some one just days before about accidents in the mountains I remember one part if you hurt a joint keep it moving or it will sieze up.If there is any truth to this I got to go now.I know what a coincidence strange I know the only way off this is to get up and go I told myself.So the journey starts as I stumble my way on to my feet some times tripping and falling down using my ice ax for suport all the while clinching my yelling with my teeth clintched shut I reach my first cravasse oh shit this jump is going to hurt.That is if I make,it I stood at the edege as close as I could get I pushed off with my left leg landing on my right falling face first and onto the snow again stumbling to stand then hike on weaving my way around huge cravasses and jumping a few more with the same results.Finely I reach a another climber I had not seen him climbing earlyier as I was higher looking around.I'm trying to hold myself together as I come up on him I asked about the cravasses "hay I have a problem I told him I broke my ankle near the summit and I need some help getting over the last of these cravasses how many are there left.3 he tells me I know this sucks but could you help me over them he hesitates a moment then ansers you will be fine there small you jump easy.please just over the 3 last cravasses.You be okay he tells me I go to summit. With that I wanted to scream but I thanked him and hiked away latter he turned to see me triping and trying to stand back up and screaming.For a while I was probing with my ice ax that was taking way to long so I told my self fuck it.If you make it good if you don't it's know ones falt but your own then I thought about family friends and old memories of my life I was scared but there was nothing to do but drag my own ass off this mountain I kept on only once stoping to drink the last of my bottle of water.I had a stove but I had to keep moving 9 hours latter from the summit I walked into the Easton glaicer base camp exhausted From the last 2 days.I talked with a mountain guide about my ankle and asked if they could call a ranger to help me out he told me if he calls it's going to most likley be a chopper I told him no that I made it this far I'm going to walk out.Latter down on the Rail Road Grade below base camp I met a few people they gave me a few tylenol and trecking poles then I met a few others 2 miles from the end one steped in front of me and asked to take my bag I refused she insisted and I still refused then I gave in and she caried my pack down to the cars a few hikers drove me into Berlington where I cought my bus back home my family drove me to the hospital I stayed on crutches for 4 weeks I'm now walking and hiking I almost have my full movment back. Gear Notes: your snuggie
