  1. [TR] Forbidden - West Ridge 6/17/2017

    Nice! Interesting that there's a bit of ice there (particularly in your false summit pic) that wasn't there a couple of weeks ago. That was completely dry on the 3rd: http://peakbagger.com/climber/ascent.aspx?aid=810218
  2. Showing snow levels as of yesterday, from 30,000ft and ~30 miles away. Not sure how to get full res here, so it's downloadable here.
  3. Trip: Ingalls Peak/Headlight Basin - E Ridge + South Face Date: 6/4/2016 Trip Report: Great short weekend out. We did the E Ridge then descended and did the top section of the S Face (the best part!) before descending the rest of the way Approach conditions were snowy, with a tricky moat to get on route for the E Face. We got on the rock at the wrong spot (too far left) and had to climb a little vertical section to get to the ramp. No matter how you do it the moat is gonna be a little hairy. The whole day was very hot and we should have brought more sunscreen for the reflected sunlight. Headlight Basin is still quite snowy though I bet it's melting fast. Others brought crampons/ice axe for the gully and didn't regret bringing them, but I didn't have them (1 hiking pole only) and was OK using steps kicked before us/kicking more in the mostly soft snow. Road 9737 is still closed ~1 mi from the trailhead due to washouts. The right turn on the trail is also at a washout so it's extra easy to miss - the sign is gone! Have some photos: Stoke: beauuutiful rock on Ingalls S Face The washout just before the Esmerelda trailhead would be impassable by most cars, but to make sure nobody makes the situation worse, WSDOT has put a barrier in 1 mile up the road. Easy road hike, keeps out some of the riffraff (but not us unfortunately). Stuart W Ridge ridge is still quite snowy A bit of Aurora Borealis at around 2AM Star and airplane trails.

  5. Conditions on Emmons route?

    Here's the view from near Sunrise on the 1st of July. The current bootpath is pretty clearly visible.
