  1. [TR] Dorado Needle - NW ridge 07/03/2022

    Very nice. It’s been a long time since I was up there. Beautiful terrain. We did Eldo and Inspiration on the same trip but skipped over the Needle. I’ll have to get back there sometime.
  2. ‘The alpinist” movie now on Netflix

    Thanks for the heads up. Watched it tonight. Even when you know the ending, it's still brutal.
  3. Very cool. I haven't lived in Washington for over 20 years and about 75% of my climbing memories and stories of PNW climbing involve long and/or suffer-fest approaches.
  4. High Ice movie

    I remember watching it on TV in 1980 when I was 10 years old. My first exposure to climbing things other than trees. High lights I recall: Dropped backpack containing all climbing gear. Long fall traps man in rock pocket, from which he could not be retrieved until he was frozen solid. A person can pull a helicopter into a mountain with a sling rather than get pulled off the ledge.
  5. Climbing this spring (and maybe summer)

    I'm a little too busy to worry about climbing right now. I wonder if they designed the PAPR hood around the Ecrin Roc. They sure fit the same. Stay safe and practice social distancing.
  6. Alps 4000m speed climb attempt

    Back in the day, this is the type of post that would reach classic status.
  7. Go to the trip report section and search for TR’s from “off_the_hook” (I think his real name is Leor). He did some phenomenal link-ups in superhuman short amounts of time. Most anything he did is likely worth repeating but it might take you 4 days rather than 22 hours.
  8. best of cc.com The Nodder?

  9. Where oh where did all my sprayers go?

    I just bumped the Nodder thread. That should make you happy.
  10. best of cc.com The Nodder?

    Thanks to the Urban Dictionary, I think I might have a clue about what this thread was about. But which of the 9 definitions is the true nodder? This may require meditation https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.urbandictionary.com/define.php%3fterm=nodder&amp=true
  11. This place is like Monte Cristo

    Back in the early 2000’s, I was posting a lot because I was climbing a lot and wanted to inspire and inform others. I haven’t done much climbing over the last few years but what I have done I posted about. Coming back to cc.com now and seeing the dramatic fall in apparent traffic is a big bummer for me, as my impression is that it is due to a lack of enthusiasm from the next generation. Are the crags as empty as the forums? I’ve heard millennial are buying less activity specific gear and pursuing less adventure. If so, hopefully it is only a temporary reaction from this generation not wanting to be like their parents and climbing/adventure will be revisited in the future. For those carrying the torch here, I salute you. Few things in life are better than a bivy on the North Ridge of Forbidden Peak.
  12. High Ice

    You can get it for $12.99 but they let you watch the best scene for free, as the trailer. http://raremovies.biz/inc/sdetail/16839
  13. Where are they now??

    We did Hannegan Pass to Easy Ridge. My partner had this great idea to skip the show mperfect impasse by taking a near vertical bushwhack route straight up to the ridge. Not recommended.
  14. Where are they now??

    Interesting read. I guess we've all moved on a bit but wasnt the turn of the century a cool time on this site? I've been hunting and skiing here in sunny Colorado for over a decade but I've made it back to WA a couple of times, including a successful climb of Challenger in a 3 day push a couple years ago. I do miss the Cascades.
