  1. Climbing the Triad Dec. 13-14

    No, but I've heard you can get about a mile and a half from the Hidden Lake lookout trailhead. I was thinking I'd approach from there.
  2. I'm looking for a partner or two to join me for a climb of the Triad (between Hidden Lake lookout and Eldorado) later this week. While I'm guessing it could be done in a day, I'm thinking it would be more fun to do a 2 day climb. Approach Wednesday and summit Thursday. Likely on snowshoes, but I could do skis too (I'm just getting into backcountry skiing, so I'd need to be convinced an average skier could do this trip). I'm also available for future mid-week multi-day climbs/scrambles/backcountry ski trips.
  3. climbing/touring fri-sun

    Interested in a climb/ski of Corteo or Black Peak tomorrow? I'm in good shape (headed to Denali in 2 weeks) and looking for a steady pace. Not a strong skier, but very experienced on snow, steep slopes, etc.

  5. I have a size small women's pair of Outdoor research alti mitts and I'd like to trade them for a larger size. They are like new. Gore text outer and removable liner. Will consider sale, but would prefer to trade for a larger size - men's medium preferable, of any similar expedition weight mitt (any brand).

  9. Denali West Buttress 2016

    Still looking for partners. I've sent private messages to the folks who replied so far, but haven't heard anything back. Perhaps old fashioned cell phones are better? Text me at 206-245-0059 and let's set up a time to grab a beer and/or discuss via phone. Thanks, Jim

  11. Alpine This Weekend? May 9-10

    Interested in a one day trip Saturday? Perhaps Observation Rock or another one day steep snow climb?
  12. Denali West Buttress 2016

    My team of three is looking to expand our team for a West Buttress attempt next year. We are three brothers who have committed to this project and we'd like to bring on a few more climbers or join another rope team. We will be doing a series of training climbs over the next year and we'd like to have potential partners join us on one of those climbs to ensure we are a good fit. Our next training climb is mid-June. Location TBD but will likely be Grade III. Our Denali plan is a late May start (one of us is a teacher) on snowshoes. We are relatively experienced - 40+ glacier climbs between us. Happy to grab a beer with you to discuss further. I live in Seattle and work in Olympia so anywhere nearby is ideal. One brother lives in Kenmore (the other is in San Jose), so those are options as well.
  13. Seeking climbing partners in olympia

    I just took a job in Olympia, though live in Seattle. I'd be up for some after work hikes in the Olympics or other training routines - 6-10 miles runs, etc. Either of you interested? My weekends are a little tough through March, but open back up again in April. Perhaps grab a beer one evening to touch base first?
  14. WTB: Your used Denali gear

    Le Piston - I do have a tent. But I'm interested in your mitts. I'll PM you. I've heard the air taxis do have sleds, but they don't have fixed poles. I'm still trying to decide if I want to pony up the extra money for a nicer sled, but I thought I'd see what's out there at least.
  15. Alpine Ascents Used Gear Sales

    Do you still have the rental boots for sale at Alpine Ascents?
