  1. How do we add photos to an article?

    Is there a maximum file size for photos? I keep getting an "upload failure" message.
  2. This is a badass photo!
  3. I've met a few and they are very attractive!
  4. Why should we care, I thought most of us would be dead in 2 years from taking the vaccine...
  5. There have been gullible people since the beginning of time. They just have access to more visibility now that they can type messages or post videos on social media from the safety of mom's basement.
  6. Cellular reception has greatly improved since my second shot.
  7. I'm not watching the 68 minute video about the vaccine since I've already had both doses. Here's a better video:
  8. trade MHW AMG 105 Hipbelt?

    I don't have one of those packs but just wanted to point out that you'll get no sympathy from me for "suffering from skinny hips"!
  9. Did you summit?

    http://publications.americanalpineclub.org/articles/13201215692 Pretty good article on how many people are actually reaching the true summit of 8,000 meter peaks. I think it's pretty common in the Cascades as well. I personally have reached the crater on Rainier and Helens but not bothered to slog to the actual high point of the rim. Does it count? I've read some TR's for Challenger in particular where the party claims to have bagged the peak but admit they didn't climb the summit block, usually due to weather. Should that count since they didn't climb the technical part of that peak? I guess I can't criticize anyone since I haven't literally summited Rainier or Helens. How about Luna? I haven't attempted Luna yet but understand most folks do not make the traverse to the actual summit (at least according to Juan Sharp). What other peaks are accepted as a successful climb without actually touching the summit?
  10. Scottish Ice

    Or gloves! I don't know how many of you have ridden a motorcycle any distance in the winter but you'd better have some good gloves or you're going to have some pretty bad screaming barfies. Maybe it was part of his conditioning program?

    This trip report makes my knees hurt. I agree with Kit's sentiment.
  12. Can you identify this mountain?

    My gut reaction is that photo was taken in the Rockies.
  13. Wy'East Gear and Experience Requirements: Should I climb it?

    Have you climbed the south side route on Hood? I've always thought climbing a new (to me) peak by the standard route was a good way to get familiar with her and develop some confidence. I haven't climbed the Wy'East route but from reading its description, it's pretty exposed and probably more difficult to bail off, especially if you don't have confidence in anchor building. https://www.summitpost.org/wy-east/157708 Hope that helps!

    Awesome, look forward to the story about the gate.
