A December ascent of Rainier via the Gibraltar Ledges, and descent via the Ingraham Direct.  We did a little holiday decorating at Muir the night before.

Spent the day cragging around Icicle Creek.

Highlight of the day was Cocaine Crack, a 5.10a finger crack variation of the second pitch of R&D on Icicle Buttress.

An attempt at Liberty Crack (V 5.9 A2) on Liberty Bell.  We did the first two aid pitches and bailed since we were moving so slow.

I lead the second pitch (the Lithuanian Lip), which was a blast.

Dave and I climbed Mount Olympus in a day. Final time was 19 hours, 51 minutes round trip.  It was 40+ miles and 9,000ft+ total vertical gain/loss.  We started from the Hoh River Trailhead at 3am, hit the summit at 12:30pm, and returned to the trailhead at 10:51pm.

This was first time either of us had done more than 20 miles in a day, so I think we did ok for doing more than 40 miles!

White Chuck Mountain is a short scramble just SE of Darrington.  The entire mountain feels like it's covered in loose gravel.

We drove through Oso where the mudslide was a few months back - the volume of mud and debris is huge!

A night tour up Granite Mountain the night before New Year's Eve.  We took a run off the north side at 1am in great powder.

A dayhike up Dragontail from Asgard Pass.  One snowfield crossing to get up to the col on the south ridge, and then follow the trail to the summit.

We left the Stuart Lake Trailhead about 7:30am and returned at 7:30pm.
