    I do not know what the season is but I am sure they were not the first people to climb and ski it this year. I imagine it gets climbed all the time.

    According to the NPS: "As of June 18th, there have been no summit attempts made by anyone, public, rangers, or guides! No routes have been established."

    Climbing above 10,500' on Rainier was prohibited for the last several months because of COVID, and that closure encompassed the busiest stretch of the climbing season there. Perhaps there were a handful of winter summits in January or February, but it certainly hasn't been getting climbed "all the time" this spring.

    MRNP stats: Liberty Ridge gets 98 climbers per year average @ 53% completion rate = 52 climbers complete Liberty Ridge in an average year, a relatively low number for a Fifty Classic [Crowded] Climbs route. Source: https://www.nps.gov/mora/planyourvis...Routebrief.pdf

    Condolences to Matthew Bunker's friends and family. What a tragedy.

    --

    On an unrelated note, do any mags have current conditions or beta for skiing the Coleman Deming on Baker? Thinking about going up the North Ridge and skiing the Coleman this weekend (after the storm moves thru). Any current beta or conditions would be super appreciated. Thanks!!

    Bumped into a grip of Alpental folks from lift ops to pro patrol and a couple food & beverage folks after spinning a couple laps on the MTB in Roslyn yesterday. I guess that's the place to be these days, even the pot shop on the way out of town was perfectly quaint

    Got a sunburn yesterday, which was a treat given how shitty the weather has been on every previous trip I've taken to the Northern Dead End. Coverage and surface conditions are still pretty good, although the suncups are starting to get big, particularly on lower angle slopes. Four laps and a pond skim to cap it off makes for a solid day of July skiing.

    It's about time "the point" came back into vogue.

    So that's what you call a collection of Padded Seats skiers... a grip. I like it.

    Emmons route was still in fine shape on Sunday. The tread to the summit from near Camp Schurman is relatively direct but differs from last year (doesn't currently go over to the saddle looker's R of the peak). I crossed paths with a good skier from Bend so we partnered up for a great descent. He is in black in some of the pics. There was plenty of smooth snow up high. There were some areas of thinly veiled blue ice but that was manageable/avoidable. There was a little bit of nice chalky snow near the top, and a few great panels of corn a few thousand feet below the crest. We dropped at about 1:30 and were on skis continuously from the summit to just above Glacier Basin Camp. Interglacier is a bit textured but still skied pretty well. The best skiing was on the firm corn up high. Weather is looking pretty decent on Friday so I plan to return.

    Edit*

    B_________________________________________ those are some great pics

    Here's a substandard offering. Can concur that snow from 10K to 9K was really nice (then "variable" to 5,500).

    Cool, thanks for the report! Bro from Oregon needs to figure out the right way to carry the ice axe. Did you guys rope up at all? Is it necessary to ski over that gap or was that just for fun? Also would appreciate any tips on how the permit situation was figured out given the online reservations are full. Thanks
