lol.gif  Jim!

I knew those shots where from your Baker glacier training!  What I can't believe is you took the time to write such a lengthy report with such a flat even tone to it. Then all the time to pick out pics. Not too many dead give aways  wink.gif ...well, a few! Well done mr.

Too good!   Great job !   up.gif    EPIC "off trail" report!   lol.gif    biggrin.gif

Fools!  I heard the same thing - as you will see, Opus wasn't so lucky this year.   shakehead.gif  eek.gif   s.d.

I was hoping that 2009 would bring a TR of the 2nd ascent...  Perhaps 2010...

All,

Being a big dog fan, I was wondering how the husky-mix managed the prussik ascent.  Maybe a special pair of jumars or something?  Had me stumped there for about .08 seconds. biggrin.gif  biggrin.gif  biggrin.gif

with all this warm weather of late, i hear the crevasses up there are huge right now! be careful if you're courageous enough to log a 2nd ascent via this route.

The Si glacier is one of the two or three glaciers in the U.S. that is actually growing (St. Helens and Shasta...?), so your trip report next year will probably be taller as well. lol.gif

I heard the rescue chopper was able to actually land inside the crevasse, but they bearly made it out as night temps dropped and the crevasse began to close.

I was wondering if someone would unearth this report for today. I am glad to see it again.

I hate it when crevasses close when I'm still using them.  Darn crevasses, anyway.

Best TR ever.  I visit this every April Fools Day in the same way that I have to watch A Christmas Story every Christmas Eve.   up.gif
