  1. Past hour
  2. We are all, it seems, just seeds cast into the wind, searching for the right meadow in which to take root, grow, and bloom, before we too are folded back into the earth when our summer finally draws to a close. Life is what we make it, each day precious.
  3. Today
  4. Crap. I hate this part of climbing. They were all inspiring in their own ways. RIP.

    Word from John Roskelly via Tony Yeary is that they are in fact dead. :-(

  14. Yesterday
  15. They've extended the comment period to May 13th 2019. There is still a lot of time! I am already a party of record and will try and update this thread as I know more. The Skagit Tribes and Seattle City Light are on the record already opposing the current application and calling for an EIS. Not sure about the NPS. There is a mining resource area in the Skagit County comp. plan for this location (outright denial isn't on great legal ground) so I think comments are best expressed in the vein of trying adequately understand the likely effects (noise, traffic, etc.) of expanded quarry operations. I think most feel that the current SEPA application doesn't do a good job of this. Most have been stressing that an EIS is warranted to fully flesh out the possible effects and what effective mitigation measures might be. At some point Kiewit will be seeking a comp. plan amendment to expand the mining resource area. That will be another opportunity to make your voice heard.
  16. Based on previous experiences it's probably in our best interest if someone from the climbing community enters a comment and gets listed as "Party of Record". From other government dealings I've learned that often once the public comment period is closed the government agencies will only talk to people that are acknowledged as a "party of record" and it's too late for anyone else to file comments even if the plan has changed considerably from the initial proposal. I don't have time to follow up.

    Here’s a pic from a sun break on the Palmer webcam today. After the long storm it looks well covered up there. Probably no open bergshrund concerns. With the sun breaks and some more freeze thaw, hopefully the snow will be well consolidated. Sunday’s weather forecast and the lower freezing level look lovely for climbing. A second tool is recommended for beginners, or for the surprise icy section. Have fun!

    You bring the cabbage and I'll supply the hammers next time you're over.
  19. Thanks for posting this!
  20. Mt Hood

    Trying to take advantage of what looks like a solid weather window saturday and sunday. Any advice for a first timer on the Hogsback and conditions to expect? Thanks all!
  21. Hello Everyone! I am new to rock climbing, and new to this forum. My friend and I were hoping that there was possibly a group of experienced climbers heading up to City of Rocks in Almo, Idaho this Summer who might be willing to show us the ropes. We may or may not have gear depending on supply at out school's renter location, and I would be willing to pack gear in my rig for everyone. I wasn't really sure where else to post this so any help or direction would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  22. Alpine Dads wanted

    I could have written this post. I *should* have written this post years ago. I'm 45 too, and I have a little more time than I used to, as my kids are older, but yeah, I really appreciate climbing with other parents (no offense to my other non-parent partners that read this - I swear I love y'all!). Hit me up if you're looking for a partner sometime. cheers.
  23. Last week
  24. If you value peace and quiet on your way to North Cascades National Park, please take a few moments to review and comment on the proposal to expand quarry operations along the Rockport Cascade Road, across from town: https://www.skagitcounty.net/Departments/PlanningAndPermit/MarblemountQuarry.htm Short story- Kiewit is proposing to mine 6 days a week, 12 hours a day, for up to 100 years. They will be drilling 5-6" holes in rock, and shooting the quarry daily. Up to 150 trucks a day with one rock loads, the rock primarily bound for the mouth of Columbia and SE AK (good saltwater breakwater material). In particular, I worry about the intersection of Hwy 20 and 530 in summer months with heavily loaded trucks turning west up the hill from 530. Among other things..... Like noise. I mean, you can hear a chainsaw miles away up there, let alone quarry operations! I think a full EIS is certainly warranted and have let Skagit County officials know. Thanks for taking a look!
  25. I need to climb with you!
  26. Hwy 20 reopening
