  2. ya i was wondering about the snow. might make the 4th class stuff kinda sketchy. any other thoughts on the north ridge as s solo say in the coming weekend?
  3. what y'all think of the north ridge without gendarme? never been on route but was wondering what people think about the route as a solo?
  4. wayne, all i am sayin is wait till next august and i am totally down for the trip. i know you said you were tired of looking at it, but patience is a virtue? if you have already left i hope you out on it Aidan
  5. Climb: Eldorado Peak-East Ridge Date of Climb: 6/25/2006 Trip Report: dewanderer and I climbed eldorado's east ridge on the 24th and 25th. there were a handful of parties up there and there is a boot track from about 5,600ft. (where the snow starts) to the summit. we brought crampons but never used them. and didnt rope up until the final exposed summit ridge we only did because we hauled the rope 6,000 ft. and would feel guilty if we didnt use it. things will change as the glacier and route melts out more. anyway it was a great route but a grunt to get to!! go get it. the views are probably my favorite of the cascade pass area. dewanderer might post pictures when he gets them. Aidan Gear Notes: ice axe. didnt use crampons. .didnt use picket. barely used rope. Approach Notes: snow starts at about 5,500-5,700 ft. boot pack all the way to summit.
  6. the skier is Jon Mcmurray..and this was filmed while in switzerland(or somewhere in the alps) about 2 years ago....hes pretty fucking good...but does some dumb shit i.e. jumping off peoples houses into bushes etc...
  7. i am going on Oct. 2 tokyo to bangkok to kathmandu..that is the best way to do it. words straight from the mouth of a close family friend who has been living there since 75. i went last summer to nepal and and now going back this fall to trek/work. as for the political situation: the maoists have just annouced a 90 day cease fire. soo thats good for the upcoming trekking/climbing season. dont let the maoist detract you from going....if you have a tourist visa they wont touch you (in theory) and just carry some cash on you so if you do get stopped by them you can give them the cash as a "donation" and say its all you have.
  8. ^ thats what i should have done they are arent they?! glad to hears he is safe!
  9. where are you guys getting your information...i have been trying for a month to figure out how to get dispatches from them. are they posting on a site? i am glad he is safe. congrats to Steve and Vince. Its weird to look at those pictures of colin standing with Steve house and Tomaz Humar....remembering back when he was 15 and we were both dreaming about climbing the north ridge of stuart......jesus
  10. that was the sicky sauce michael...and when i mean sicky sauce i mean well done!
  11. well we did it a week ago. and there was still two small patches of snow above the huge bivy platform. i cant really give any more info than that. there is water flowing on the bypass glacier slabs but other than that and the snow patch there is no water anywhere and the descent is bare. i ran out of water after getting off the mountain and didnt get any until the car.
  12. mt. st. helens when the snows come around.
