  10. High Ice

    Howdy CCers Some many millions of years ago, someone referenced the movie High Ice, which was shot in Darrington. I seem to recall a link to a 10 part download, but YT is no longer supporting it. Any idea how I could watch this fabled and fantastic adventure? Anyone out there got a copy (and not on BetaMax!) Thanks, M Hanna

  13. Google Express $10 off $15 w/free shipping!!!

    It has been, must have not been brought over when we converted to the new forum software. I'll add it back. We would prefer it if you didn't have people PM you to get a referral code! In fact, I was going to edit your post and take out all the info, but I thought it would be a good reminder to everyone that it isn't permitted. Obviously we aren't going to interrupt private conversations, but please don't do it. Believe me, if we allow one person to do it, then lots of people will be doing it, and then we'll have our forums full of people trying to make 5 bucks off of our user base. And again, this community was facilitated by a lot of hard work by us who run the site and it isn’t free for us to run. Yeah there a ton of great deals out there....it tis the season for deals. You are welcome to post about great deals for the members of the site, but not to make money off of it (i.e. no referral codes/affiliate links). Again, these type of things are reserved for the site to use to make money.
  14. Google Express $10 off $15 w/free shipping!!!

    Sorry, didn’t see anything about affiliate links in the sticky. Can people at least send me a message? There are some great deals to be had today For example, A Black Diamond Vaporlock Screwgate Carabiner can be purchased for about $5-$6 shipped!!!
  15. Google Express $10 off $15 w/free shipping!!!

    Hi Barry, sorry man we we don't allow affiliate links or referral codes like this other than for ones that support the site. We do appreciate that you were up front about everything, but it is just against site policy. There are a number of reasons, but the two biggest ones are: 1. To prevent everyone spamming referral codes and links with affiliate codes. We don't want this site to become a sea of people trying to get people to use their codes so they can make side money (or I've seen people try to do it as a main source of income!). 2. CC.com needs those links and referral dollars coming in to support the site! So any codes/affiliate links must go toward funding the site. It isn't free to run this site, and we don't make very much as it is. The money we do raise from the site goes towards hosting fees, licensing software, and funding things that support the site. So we appreciate the heads up on the sale/discount, but I had to remove your referral code. Thank you for your understanding, and Happy Holidays.

  17. East Cascades: Montana

    An admin should change the subtitle on the Montana forum to "East Cascades: Montana" also Idaho. (I saw "Seriously man it's part of the Cascades" under Alaska and it gave me this sweet idea)
  18. Caught skiing in the crater?

    I think I've asked this before but does anyone know of someone who has got *caught* skiing inside the crater at Mt. St. Helens or Crater Lake? Do they face prison time or just a fine? Is there an NPS person on this forum that can tell me the statute one is violating for doing so? Asking for a friend...
  19. Just wanting to pass along a great climbing gear deal. Picked up a BD Neutrino carbiner and BD 60cm dynex sling for $7.54 shipped! TODAY (only?) Google Express is offering free shipping over $15. Combine this with a first time user credit of $10. Moosejaw & Paragon Sports are both Google Express merchants so you can score great deals on carabiners, slings, etc.. Also $14.90 counted as "close enough" for free shipping. Enjoy!
  20. Trip: Big Snow! - Jefferson Smootship Trip Date: 10/31/2017 Trip Report: Calling all Smooters! You don't have to hide any longer, list motivated peak bagging is all the rage now. Just look at those thousands of Bulgers out choss polishing each summer......and many of those peaks are pretty unpleasant and would hardly ever be climbed if it weren't for the hallowed list. In contrast, Mr. Smoot has compiled a list based on nothing other than WA peak bagging for the sheer joy of it. Such a good list, I might add, that I was more than halfway done with it before I'd even heard of "Climbing Washington's Mountains". But even an ardent Smooter has their limits, this ain't the 50 Classics after all. So, I typically pace myself, ticking off a couple a year in the shoulder seasons when I am looking for straightforward, yet interesting, diversions among the lower elevation summits of our home ranges. Which is why I found myself with Scott and Kit at the end of this past October hiking up the Dingford Creek Trail, en route to Snowflake Lake at the base of the north side of Big Snow. The gating of the Middle Fork at Dingford Creek has meant that the north side approach is the shortest route to the Big Snow summit these days. While likely not as dramatic as the Hardscrabble climber's path, it is still more scenic than I would have thought. I think it took us about 4-5 hours to camp or so, where we quickly set up camp at Snowflake Lake (where you can be yourself) and set off for the summit in the late afternoon. A bit of brush wrangling just about the lakes (would be snow covered in early season) found us on a minor rib scrambling surprisingly decent rock upwards to the broad summit ridge, less than two hours from camp. A quick check of our phones revealed that the indomitable Fred Beckey had passed away peacefully that morning while we were walking to camp. Gazing out across the Middle Fork at the Snoqualmie Alps (Lemah, Chimney Rock, Summit Chief, etc.), we raised our flask to Fred and his incredible life. We were all lucky enough to have run into him over the years and all felt standing on a Cascadian summit was a fitting place to remember a legend. After all, the brown guide was what had gotten us to that very point. Crag on the NW side of Big Snow, I've heard someone has been up to this wall an climbed a bit: Kit on the interesting approach to Big Snow Lake: Scott surveys Big Snow Lake: Snoqualmonix! Gear Notes: ice axe and crampons Approach Notes: Dingford Creek to Myrtle Lake. Leave trail and stay low until right below Big Snow Lake. Go up cool talus gully to lake and follow your nose to Snowflake Lake, where you can be your very own snowflake. Up and left from the lake to a minor rib then directly up mellow slopes to summit. Would be doable in day with longer days of early summer and more snow. Great relaxed fall trip.
  21. current song in your head

  22. they sure as shit would be disappointed in the return...unless they were the right kinda depraved, and were around for just the right 10 n' 1/2 seconds my favorite reid solo was topping out on the west crater rim n' immediately falling 500 feet into the crater in the full site of 100 totally disinterested tourons on the hogsback...fuck, sure wish i'dve a camera for that so i coulda sued them backwater bitches

  25. Fred Beckey In High Places: The Himalaya

    Famed Mountaineer Fred Beckey first travelled to the Himalaya in 1955 as a member of the International Himalayan Expedition.Their objective: To make the first ascent of Lhotse, a part of the Everest massif. At 27,940 feet, this is the fourth highest mountain in the world.Over the next nearly-sixty years Fred made multiple trips back to the Himalaya.His interests were in finding unclimbed peaks, establishing new routes on previously climbed peaks, trekking untrodden, remote mountain valleys, and the study and exploration of sub-ranges of various Asian Mountains and the Himals.This short evening lecture will focus on the goals of the Lhotse Expedition, and analyse controversies that arose with this climb, and resultant outcomes. Time permitting, the detail and objectives of subsequent trips will also be discussed, and include the ambitious plans of what had been Fred Beckey's most recent Himalayan objective, which would have been to travel next year (2018), to a remote valley in the Garhwal of Northern India. Fred Beckey recently died at age ninety-four. He lived a life that centered on mountains, climbing, scholarship, research and creating a legacy that will endure for generations to come. The speaker, Megan E. Bond, is also Fred Beckey's biographer and will read excerpts from her writings, which will be published by Mountaineers Books. Over the course of a decade, she and Fred made multiple exploratory trips together to Nepal, India, China and Tibet. *There is no charge for this event, but please Register for a 'Ticket' as capacity is limited to forty people. Please message the Speaker/Host (Megan) to add your name. Thank you. .................................... Location: Magnolia Branch of the Seattle Public Library. 2801 34th Ave West Seattle WA 98199
