  1. Wand Length

    You can get that reflective tape at Freddy's for about $3.00 in the hardware section... just made me a fancy new set of wands.... only 1 problem, they're 48" so I gotta cut them down -Ted
  2. rainier climb for geezers

    I read a Rainier trip report where they went up Friday evening after work. Left Paradise around 8-9 and got to Muir around midnight. They left for the summit at midnight the next day. This allowed them all day saturday to acclimatize, an extra 1/2 day compared to hiking up to Muir saturday a.m. -Ted
  3. question for the other women here

    Daisy, Check this site out.... http://www.restrooms.org/standing.html -Ted
  4. Ice axes?

    Check out the 'Barrabes GWN' thread... it should answer those questions. Barrabes is as advertised on this site... awesome.
  5. Rainier in January./ Gibraltar Ledge

    Dan... If you go with plastics, check out the Scarpa Invernos.. In my opinion they seem as if they'd be accomodating for bunions. I don't think REI rents them, but maybe one of the other shops up there does. Good luck on the climb. -Ted
  6. Grip strength.

    I second EPB, I had the same experience
  7. WANTED: Scarpa Invernos or...

    epb, I have a NEW pair of Scarpa Alphas that are a UK size 12, but don't fit my foot quite right. In US sizes I am a 11.5-12. They are much more snug than the Invernos. I can let them go for about $210. -Ted lib_ridge@yahoo.com
  8. Suspected Terrorist Cell on CC.com

    Bin lurkin-CC.com has been suspected as a potential threat as well .. Rumors are that he and his contingent could be numerous, upwards of 1,000 or more....
  9. Broken Top Routes

    GMan, There are over 10 routes described in Jeff Thomas' book 'Oregon High'. It is currently out-of-print but tThe Mazamas have a limited quantity available if interested. www.mazamas.org -Ted
  10. North Ridge Players

    C4F, Inspite of the trashing the Mt Adams North Ridge has taken on this board for being 'miserable, despicable, in-obvious route-finding', I did it in July, up and down. When I went it was all rock except for the summit snow cap. You shouldn't need any rope/pro. Crampons would only be needed (doubful) on the summit cap, but the slope is very mild. We did not put on crampons. Reflecting back, I feel the board was right. The next time I'm on it will only be as a descent for another route. However as you can see Vancleav enjoyed it a lot, so this is only one person's opinion. We did see a herd of goat's a couple of times and exerienced great views of the Adams glacier and Lava Headwall. Good luck! -Ted
  11. September/October Snowfield Climbs

    Not a summit, but what about a hike up to Camp Muir.
  12. c..c.....Cold

    How about a thermal blanket (space blanket) underneath sleeping pad. I also try to put any extra fleece/wool items (hat/gloves) underneath my shoulders for extra insulation. -Ted
  13. Mt. Thielsen

    Hammer, There are two campgrounds on Diamond lake. Have also seen folks camp right at the trailhead... -Ted
  14. What happened here?

    The "freadom" fighters have broken in !!!
  15. Wise-ass wisdom (part II)

    "The older I get... the better I was" -- on T-shirt at gym "Be careful, don't get burned" -- Overheard from another hiker up Mt St Helens on what his mom told him day before.
