June 3, 2007 Little Tahoma from Paradise variation
« on: 06/04/07, 11:10 PM »

Followed Oyvind's tracks from Sat to Little Tahoma, thanks for the beta OH.  Car camped at Paradise, and left around 5am with summit by noon.  Crossing of the Paradise, Cowltiz and Ingraham Glaciers was uneventful, except for hearing the collapse of an occassional serac behind us.  Chossy rock with exposure on climb, ugly but not too bad.  Snow better than expected for a warm day with good turns down the Whitman.  On return, decided to descend the Paradise Gl from Anvil Rock.  Ended up following a really nice line down the Cowlitz making for a LONG traverse back to the car and a sporty end to the day....no confessions on how, or by whom, that decision was made   Grin

oh i don't think so.  8700' and what felt like circumnavigating the mountain brought us back to nearly an empty parking lot  Smiley
always fun to explore new terrain ~ thanks Paul.
200' more and a lot less O2 we could have summited rainier that day, but glad i didn't: there was a lenticular all day.

Nice pics Paul & Monika, sounds like a great trip where one of your legs was probably fatigued beyond belief as traverses tend to do!  Maybe twin tips have another purpose - backwards traversing in the BC  Cheesy  Would enjoy skiing that one some time.
