  1. must have been good?

    I'm definitely a little tired this morning, but the trip to T-town was well worth it! Nice to see all who showed up.
  2. I'll be headed down to Tacoma from Kent, returning to Ballard in the late evening. Anyone want to meet me here in Kent, send me an email. Looking forward to another fun pub club!
  3. I agree with Dwayner, it is a scary situation. Lisa, I sent you an email with my story, and what I did about it, hope it helps.
  4. What did you do....

    Spent a few hours Saturday walking up to the Lunch Counter on Adams with some friends who are very new to alpinism. Camped there Saturday night. No summit for us on Sunday, but a great experience for them with winds and whiteouts, snow travel and ice axes. A relatively relaxing weekend for me. My goal was to be outside all weekend, and that was accomplished.
  5. A story in the works

    Me too
  6. See ya at the Flying Pig, mike. I won't make it to the Crags, leaving Kent at 5PM.
  7. Climbing-Beer-Tuesday the 31st!!

    It was a blast, see you next week at the Flying Pig.
  8. July 24th Pub Club meeting place

    The Old Town Alehouse in Ballard?
  9. Tacoma Pub Night

    The Old Town Alehouse in old Ballard? No pool, but they got one of them shuffleboard thingies.
  10. July 24th Pub Club meeting place

    Ballard Alehouse at 7PM sounds great to me... or 6:30PM.... or 6PM....
  11. July 24th Pub Club meeting place

    Hey, guys, Office Space indicated the Old Town might be too pricey? Is that what you meant, OS? What about the Triangle Tav in Fremont?
  12. Pub Club TR

    Wow! I'm in Ballard, too! How cool is that? Might see you guys in Tacoma next week......
  13. Ways to cut pack weight?

    I think all of the things you listed are common weight-adders that can be left behind. I shelled out the cash for a really lightweight pack (Arc'teryx Khamsin) and appropriate temperature down bag. I also leave the Thermarest behind, and carry a 3/4 Z-rest. But then I am short, so 3/4 is ok.
  14. work!?

    I'm a market planner at an outdoor recreation company. Can you guess which one?
  15. Mt Adams - South Spur Route beta?

    I was there this weekend, 7th and 8th. We camped at the Lunch Counter, leisurely 2 day ascent. I have been up the road when it has been worse, the ruts were manageable at 10:15PM. The Cold Springs parking lot is competely melted out. Extremely little snow to the Lunch Counter (read "nasty scree climb"), nice snow conditions from there to the false summit and on to the summit. Fantastic glissade from the false summit all the way to the rocks just above the Lunch Counter, esp if you wait to go down (like we did) after it softens up a bit (we left the summit at noon, were back at L.C. approx 12:45!).

  17. bouldering in Glacier

    Does anyone know of some good bouldering in Glacier Natl Park? I'll be there next week. ------------------
  18. khamsin 30?

    I've got the Khamsin 30 and love it. It's really comfortable and hardly weighs anything. I've used it on plenty of day trips, including up to Muir several times, and it looks brand new. No rips or anything.
  19. Access Fund Vertical Times Denali

    I just heard from Mike in Talkeetna this morning. He's returning to Mt Rainier Monday, April 23, so if you have input, use email not USPS. ------------------
  20. Plastic boots

    My vote is for the Lowa Civetta as well. Jim at Pro Mountain Sports was great about helping to fit them specifically to my feet/legs.
