      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Longest Stay on the summit of Mt Baker.

Recommended Posts

Many years ago I climbed Mt Baker for the first time with a guy who possibly had the record for longest stay at the summit, possibly 30 days or something.

I am wondering if anyone remembers anything about this.

I am ashamed to say I cannot remember the guys name (Glenn?).

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Tyson

t_rutl - Would you mind asking your good friend?

I met said guy through a coworker of my ex wife. Mutual friend named Mike Eedie?

I remember having a blast on the climb and some great conversations.

I would really like to reconnect and just see how things have been going.

If memory serves me well, a few years after our climb I saw some of his photographs for sale at Fred Meyer (Posters) and I would be interested in at least learning his real name so I cold track down some of his work.

Thanks,

His name is Glenn Williams.. he took photos and sold them at fred meyer. his goal was to spend a month on all the cascade volcanoes.. but after glacier he stopped. I think he only had Rainier left if memory serves me correct.

 

I helped in ferry loads up Baker/Adams, and Glacier peak for his month long stays.

 

I use to have his phone number, but he changed it and fell off the world as far as i can tell.. last i saw he stopped doing mountain pics and switched to doing spirograph art..

 

this is a link to a story he was writing on glacier peak.

maybe i have faulty memory or something, but i think much further back in the history of Mt. Baker there was a guy living up there for a long period of time. I remember reading about it...maybe someone else will remember what I'm talking about...

I am pretty sure that there are some unrecovered bodies up there which have been there for decades, not months.

 

Duly noted....your perception is remarkable...How sophomoric of me not to consider that as a response. :)
