  1. New Speed Record on Mt. Hood. Third Party Timers?

    Hi Hans, It happened and there were third party timers. He was with a crew of folks. Aaron Sales is a good dude. Not a climber but awesome kiteboarder and snow kiter. Real deal, not some H-person who shall still remain unnamed after all of these years, wannabe
  2. first ascent FA Wind Walker Columbia Gorge

    Great work! With the amount of time below freezing and moisture in the ground, it has been the perfect opportunity for FAs coming in.
  3. Gorge Ice is in!

    Couple of more days left! Was 22 when going through this morning at Ainsworth. AInsworth area best I have ever seen since I moved here in 1999. Ainsworth Left and Right are incredible with a few more days of below freezing temps and new flow that I have not had a chance to explore a few drainages west is in as well. Also a large flow further east of Ainsworth is in from what I can see behind truck stop but not sure if there is private property to cross to access. Not sure what this one is called or if it has ben climbed. Was 25 degrees coming back from Crown Point and everything is in. Crown still has higher flow than usual, but could be climbed on the left side. The gorge (84/14) road conditions are amazing compared to roads in Portland.
  4. Gorge Ice is in!

    Looked even better today and did not see a single person out there when driving through at 9am. Get it while the gettin's good! Saturday late afternoon is supposed to turn to a Sh*t show with ice/freezing rain into Sunday.
  5. Gorge Ice is in!

    Ainsworth looks awesome, Cape Horn has some flow but looks in on several lines, Mist is misty, Crown Jewel is not in too much flow, and even falls to the right of Multnomah is in. 84 is clear to Ainsworth until Friday afternoon. This weekend will be bad on 84, especially Sunday. Be safe, assess each climb before jumping on and have fun!
  6. Saw climbers on Crown Jewel yesterday and today on my daily commute from Hood River. Ice is much better further east. Temps were in the mid to high 20s this morning through Exit 35. High 20s at Multnomah Falls and then right at freezing or a little above at Crown Point. Ice should be good tomorrow as well.
  7. Gorge Ice

    Just drove HR to PDX to hopefully catch my flight tomorrow. Saw climbers topping out on Crown at about 4:30pm. It was 32 degrees when I went through. Watch overnight temps tonight and take it slow. Good job on Ainsworth Powderhound.
  8. Gorge Ice

    Come on you Sallys! No one was out this morning when I drove through at 9:30am and the road was clear. I did 60 mph in a Honda Accord from HR to PDX this morning. Looked like I saw some specs across the way on the sunny side in WA. At least WA climbers are hard! Ice has been forming up well. Everything looked in, but a little thin. Even crown jewel was in fully but thin on the lower 1/2. Climb to the right of mist looked in if you start the upper falls on left side and work up and right. Ainsworth looked good, but was being blasted by spindrift from a truck as I went by. Get out there! Should be even better tomorrow and it has not been above freezing since Tuesday. Was 19 when I went by this morning and zero wind. I think the wind aspect will change when this new system comes in....
  9. Gorge Ice

    Saw some guys in a silver Audi heading in to crown jewel on my way to work. Further east and the ice is as good as. I have seen it in a decade. There is a line east of aims worth due south of the truck weigh station mp 45 that is the first time I have seen it look climb able. Get it while Ito is still around!
  10. Gorge Ice

    Drive in from Hood River to PDX every day and have watched the ice form all this week. Crown Jewel filled in quite a bit from yeaterday and almost completely iced over (few holes). Conditions get better further east. Mist falls looks thin but I think the weekend should be good. Stay safe. Saw 3 rollovers on the way in this morning! Sorry if there is another post on this. Just trying to pass the time while stuck in traffic.
  11. Gorge windshield observations

    Great work! Glad someone got out! The approach in the dark must have been the crux! You may be the only one to get on Ainsworth all year! Looked pretty wet today. Such is ice in the gorge!
  12. Gorge windshield observations

    Still looked good as of 7am. No one out that I saw. Ainsworth was the best of the bunch. Also some smaller rarely forming flows just west of mist may go. Crown may go but thin and open flows in middle. Would be spicy and likely not much pro above first anchor on left.
  13. Gorge windshield observations

    Came through the gorge this morning as I so daily for my commute. Ice is forming well and dare I say that some lines MAY go at exit 35. Crown Jewel is close and best its been all season but not in yet. Lines east of Multnomah forming nicely. If up for some adventure, tomorrow looks like best opportunity as warm weather moving in tomorrow afternoon. Cascade Locks has been colder than PDF and hood river by a few degrees. Low tonight is supposed to be around 20 with freezing rain moving in around 6am. Be careful out there!
  14. ICE??

    I moved out to HR but work in Portland so drive by all of the regulars every day. As of Friday afternoon (even with the big freezing rain episode), some stuff may go but very thin. The main issue is that it is way above freezing during the day and there is a lot of flow. Some of the seeps further east look good and stuff around Exit 35. But I wouldn't even waste my time with mist or Crown Jewel. My only caveat is that I have not been by since 5pm on Friday, so if it stayed really cold all day today, some ice may go tomorrow early. I wouldn't get on it, but maybe I have become an ice snob in my old age, especially when you have some stellar ice not too far north in WA.
