I recently contributed a couple of employee travel guides / trips reports to HomeAway.com. The travel guides were lacking in outdoor adventures. One is titled Austin, TX Outdoor Adventures and covers all of the rock climbing walls on the Greenbelt, kayaking & tubing Barton Creek, and a few more activities and places. A second article titled Climbing Mountains Around Seattle, WA covers Mount Rainier, Mount Adams, Mount Baker, Mount Shuksan, and Glacier Peak.
With seven of us on the climb this year it felt more like an expedition.
That’s me leading and Paul Bostrom following and taking the ice screws out.
The frozen waterfall is located just off the highway past Wolf Creek Ski area in Colorado.
Rob, Ryan and I climbed the Kautz Glacier route on Mount Rainier, July 22 – July 25. We summited at noon on Thursday, July 24 (my birthday)
July 24th, 2007 we summited Mount Baker by the Coleman Headwall route. If I had submitted the story of our climb to the American Alpine Club’s Journal of North American Climbing Accidents the title would have read: “Late start, didn’t carry over, failure to leave climbing plan with rangers”. Luckily we didn’t have an accident, just a little late.
