  1. Has anyone climbed the rock formation just off HWY 14 east of Lyle or have any FA information? Seems like someone might have considered developing it. Email me: wojtek at pagacz dot ca
  2. Hey! Does anyone have any info on ice climbing in the Elkhorn Mountains in Oregon? Apparently there is ice in Pine Creek and Rock Creek. https://www.mountainproject.com/area/105912514/pine-creek Cheers.
  3. Looking to climb some ice this weekend, possibly backcountry ski. Have gear and experience. Willing to drive. Located in Vancouver, Wa. Anyone interested?
  4. I got laid off. Which means I have lots of time to climb/ski. Looking for peeps to climb ice or backcountry ski with. Only issue is I have to stay in Canada... Open to doing local(Vancouver, BC area) trips or going to the Rockies. I have a 4x4 truck and gear. Can lead WI4+ and will ski pretty much anything.

  7. [TR] Dragon Tail - Triple Couloirs 2/15/2015

    Buckaroo: I don't thinking we placed any nuts or offsets. We had a single rack of cams c-4 and small x-4 .1"-3"used most at one point or another. EDIT:Should have had coffee before answering. No rock was climbed.
  8. Ainsworth Left Sunday morning. Thin and detached but first 3 pitches go.
  9. Adams Glacier 7/19

    I'm contemplating doing Adams via Adams Glacier Saturday morning in a single push. It will be a very big day and the key will be to move quickly. Game plan: leave trailhead at 1am, glacier base(steep part) at dawn, summit at 9ish. Bust down the north ridge and back to car. If this is something you are interested in and within your abilities give me a shout. Weather is unstable right now. One forecast claims gale force winds and sunny while another lower winds but chances of rain. Make the call tomorrow.
  10. Mt. Washington rap length

    final rap is short(first pitch) 40m should do it.
  11. Thinking of doing 9 or 11 o'clock couloir this weekend. Anyone been up there lately or knows if it's too late? Any input would be appreciated. Cheers W
  12. Mt Washington Conditions

    http://cascadeclimbers.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/1123293/TR_Mt_Washington_North_Ridge_4#Post1123293 amazing climb.
  13. Trip: Mt Washington - North Ridge Date: 4/20/2014 Trip Report: Not a lot of info on this climb so here is a quick summary. Forrest and I climbed Mount Washington on Sunday. We left PDX at 5:00 am. Drove all the way to the youth camp on Big Lake. Last section is fairly rough not sure low clearance vehicles can make it. Started skinning at 8:30, took the trail from the youth camp which joins the PCT. Followed PCT for a 1.5 miles the peeled off for some easy bushwacking. Key here is to head for the clearing on the west slopes to avoid melted out tree wells. 10:00 am at base of the steep western slope. Snow was hard, we boot packed it to the ridge, stashed our skis. At 11:30 we were climbing. First pitch was has some spicy sections but super fun. We simulclimbed the rest of the climb. Steep frim snow and ice. Summit shots: We topped out at 1:00 pm. Did 2 rappels(and a bit of down climbing) to get off the pinnacle. Skied some hideous mash potato bullshit down to the meadows, transitioned to skins and back to car. Beer at car. Back in PDX at 8:00 pm. Super fun climb, go get it while its still rimed up. Notes: We should have started earlier, climbing would have been much better. Sun exposed parts of the pinnacle we softening up. Gear Notes: 3 pickets, 4 screws, dmm alloy offsets and 4 dmm torque nuts, technical tools, crampons, twin 70m cords. Found good ice for screws.
