All parties just after the summit

Early Season on Mount Shuksan

The ear­ly sea­son has been fruit­ful for Moun­tain Mad­ness’ clients on Mount Shuk­san. This past week­end we had suc­cess with climbers mak­ing it to the sum­mit from both sides of the moun­tain. Among the many great routes on the moun­tain, the Fish­er Chim­neys and Sul­phide Glac­i­er remain the most pop­u­lar and for good rea­son. The Sul­phide Glac­i­er which is a great entry lev­el climb with a spec­tac­u­lar rock fin­ish is just enough to give the begin­ner climber more then their mon­ey’s worth. The Fish­er Chim­neys, which pro­vides the inter­me­di­ate climber a diver­si­ty of ter­rain, offers mod­er­ate rock and some high tra­vers­es all before reach­ing the junc­tion with the Sul­phide Glacier.

Moun­tain Mad­ness guides Thomas Greene, Bri­an Muller, and Jen­ny Kon­way led their clients suc­cess­ful­ly to the sum­mit for what Jen­ny described as a sum­mit par­ty”. Con­grat­u­la­tions goes out to Tom A. for his suc­cess on the Sul­phide Glac­i­er route and Jim S., Tom D., Joseph K. for their sum­mit via the Fish­er Chim­neys route.
