  1. [TR] MT. HOOD - Devils Kitchen Headwall 02/12/2020

    How was the skiing?
  2. [TR] Dragontail Peak - Triple couloirs 03/31/2019

    Update on the road as of Wednesday. Continuous snow from a little bit before the eightmile TH. But before that most of the road was bare and I carried my skis 90% of the way out.
  3. [TR] Mt. Baker - North Ridge 06/27/2018

    It was pretty cruiser with firm snow until just below the ice cliff. After that it was mostly new snow from the storm the previous couple of days with firm patches mixed in. If I remember correctly it was around 4 inches of new snow.
  4. Trip: Mt. Baker - North Ridge Trip Date: 06/27/2018 Trip Report: Hey everyone, relatively new to cc. So far I have just been lurking and using the TR database for planning but I feel like it's time to add some content and write my first TR; so here it goes, hopefully it's not too bad. Michael and I drove up Tuesday afternoon to the TH and hike up to the hogsback and set up our camp for the night. We realized that we were going to have the North Ridge to ourselves as the only other party on the mountain was heading up the Coleman-Deming. The Coleman is in good condition and route finding was pretty straight forward and soon enough we were at the base of the ridge. We took the upper variation to get to the ice pitch. Here I racked up and off I went, it had been a couple months since I had last swung my tools so I was a little nervous. After the first 20 ft I got into my groove, the nerves went away and I started to have a lot of fun! I set up a belay a little bit before we got off of the ice and brought Michael up. From there I ran it out a full seventy meters before setting up one last belay on a couple of pickets. Once Michael got up to me we decided to simul-climb the rest of the way. We kept pretty close to the ridge crest, and after some fun climbing we crossed the schrund and were on the summit plateau. The group that had climbed the Coleman-Deming had already summited so we had the summit to ourselves for the ten or so minutes that we were up there. We sped down to our camp, drank our celebratory summit beer and took a quick nap. We packed up and started the hike out to the car, and then drove back to Bellingham to go to Kulshan Brewing. This route is awesome and truly deserves it's status as a classic. I am super stoked to have been able to knock it off my tick list! Gear Notes: 6 ice screws and 3 pickets Approach Notes: Coleman glacier still in pretty good conditions.
