Ancient history, mountaineering, cycling and other outside adventures

Next stop, Mt Shuksan

I am heading out on Sunday to Seattle for some much looked forward to climbs. First up, myself and a guide are spending some quality time on the glaciers of Mt Shuksan in the North Cascades. In cycling we call it “Time-in-the-Saddle,” I’ll call this “Time-in-Crampons.” As always, I am climbing with IMG-simply the best people around. Climbing the Sulphide Glacier route. Here are the basics for Shuksan from summitpost.
