A return to the north cascades / by Eric Dacus

Three time’s the charm. Back in Washington to try the North Ridge of Mt Baker tomorrow and I’m very excited everything worked out this time: weather, work and schedules. Being able to roll Southwest tickets forward because the weather didn’t work out sure beats the $150 fees for a ticket change other airlines charge, and it takes the pressure off trying to make a weekend trip out here happen. If it doesn’t work try again.

Climbing a route like this has been a long time goal for me and I hope it’s the start of more like it. Obviously, there’s no guarantee, but the odds feel like it’s in our favor.
