  2. [TR] Attempt on Stuart Ridge Traverse - SRT 08/04/2020

    agree with DPS ... .this late in the summer, the Sherpa is very rarely an option for decent or ascent ... the shrund gets pretty sizeable with pretty significant vertical wall of rock hard glacial ice.

  11. wanted to buy cilogear SMALL 40B worksac

    I'll third the motion for CCW ... I've been using a Chernobyl and a custom Valdez for a number of years, (Chernobyl has got to be pushing 20 years old by now) ... rock solid, bomber construction and great customer service. The custom Valdez (40L) Randy made for me included a padded, Chernobyl like hip-belt with gear/tool loops for a better carry with heavier loads, replacing the newer fixed crampons straps with his original design of daisy chains and removable/replaceable straps along with a couple internal daisy's A 40L pack on a 14.5" torso could be a challenge ... Thank you Mr Rackliff

  13. Mt Adams for first AT trip

    As JasonG mentions above ... July is typically too late for descent skiing on Adams ... go early in the season ... watch for road reports on NF-500 and how close you can get to Cold Springs Campground, consider skiing the last mile or two of the road.
