  1. Muir on Saturday?
  2. CC.com Turns 11

    Looks like the first posts were October of 2000 so 19 years of some questionable contributions to culture. I think I was still on dial up AOL account that we shared in the office with 3 people.

    Happy Birthday mofo's!
  4. Whatcom Peak? Easy Peak

    Good trail to the top of Easy Peak. Getting to and up Whatcom is quite a bit more vigorous and challenging.

    Is this supposed to be an endorsement?
  6. Good reminder that when I think things are sucky in the mountains, they sure could be (a lot) worse.
  7. Sounds terrible, nice work you guys! How about a photo of Jason's pack?

    Nice work on this tough peak. Many of us appreciate you not posting summit nudes.
  9. 30 could be a little high but we were at the approach ledge at 9:30 and there were already multiple groups on the face that probably summited by 11:00. I assume a bunch of folks camped out at the lake Friday night and were climbing shortly after dawn. We counted approximately a dozen different parties, some with 3 climbers. Certainly not the place to be if you're looking for solace. I do agree with Jason, there are a lot more folks out climbing these days.
  10. Climbed this yesterday, what a fun route! There were probably 30 climbers sharing the stoke on Ragged Edge and True Grit with a gaggle of international tourists at the top applauding as we summited.
  11. question HMG 4400 ice pack vs Osprey Aether Pro

    If you're a desk jockey with too much time to "research" the latest and greatest, they can be appealing. I have a the 40l HMG Icepack I found on Craigslist a few months ago and paid about 50% of the new price. I generally leave the brain off my other packs anyway in favor of stuff sacks inside the pack and a hip pocket for readily accessed small items. The HMG pack does carry better than my other packs in the 40-60l size but, as the OP suspects, it's pretty sweaty and warm on your back. It is pretty much waterproof, which has been nice for SAR missions in the rain.
  12. I agree with Jason, you won't be front pointing anything in approach shoes so the nanotech's are probably a waste of $ for that purpose. These work pretty well with stiffer approach shoes and fold up nicely for the 99% of the time you're carrying them in your pack for route's you've mentioned: https://www.petzl.com/US/en/Sport/Crampons/LEOPARD-FL
