  5. [TR] Mount Adams - Adams Glacier 06/11/2019

    Very cool! I’ve been wanting to do this for a while!
  6. [TR] Mount Baker - North Ridge 6/3/19

    July is a safe bet for the route. The Coleman Glacier is still in great shape and very easy to navigate at the moment. As mentioned earlier, it seems like we are a few weeks ahead.
  7. [TR] Mount Baker - North Ridge 6/3/19

    I believe that it is just what is typically referred to as the “right variation”.
  8. Climbed the North Ridge on June 3rd. Conditions are pretty cruiser to the summit. Gaining the ridge is particularly easy, basically stairs. The right ice variation is abnormally rocky right now, I wouldn't believe it if I didn't see it myself in person. Full trip report here
  9. [TR] Mt. Baker - Coleman Headwall 05/30/2019

    Very cool!
  10. Trip: Mt Hood - Reid Headwall Trip Date: 05/11/2019 Trip Report: For the detailed version, check out the post on my blog. Simulclimbed up the Reid Headwall Left Variation (Mullee 8a) on May 11th, 2019. The climbing was mostly in good neve snow, with a lone ice section. Lots of falling debris, and a very large rhyme pinnace becoming detached at the base of the final snow/rhyme field. Probably the last Hood climb I'll do until 2020. Gear Notes: 3 pickets, 1 screw needed, 50m rope (would have gone with a 30m if we knew the conditions beforehand) Approach Notes: The Southside is still the Southside
  11. [TR] Mt Hood - North Face 05/01/2019

    Nothing that exciting haha. We ditched our poles close to the bottom of the North Face and figured that would be the quickest way to retrieve them. In hindsight it would probably have been easier to just pack them.
  12. Trip: Mt Hood - North Face Trip Date: 05/01/2019 Trip Report: For the detailed version, check out the post on my blog. Went up the North Face Right Hand Gully on May 1st, 2019. The climbing was in great conditions. The shrund is definitely opening up and may become more complicated to cross over the next few days. The right gully fully goes all the way to the summit without any significant difficulties. The two ice pitches are in fat/easy condition. Get at it! Gear Notes: Alpine ice climbing gear Approach Notes: Tilly Jane trail in good condition!
  13. Kautz Conditions?

    Fellow climbers! Has anybody recently got on the Kautz route on Rainier? I climbed the Fuhrer Finger a couple weeks ago, and on our way up, there were plenty of folks who were shooting for the Kautz coming down because they heard that it was no good. I also heard from several IMG guides that it was no good. Unfortunately, none of these people had actually seen the would-be uncrossable obstacle in person. I did give the rangers a phone call asking about conditions, and they said that things were normal up there though. I'm yet to see a trip report here or a route tick on Mountain Project, so I am not quite sure what to believe.. Any good info would be much appreciated! I'm hoping to go up there this upcoming weekend.
