  1. [TR] Three Queens - SE Shoulder 10/21/2018

    does indeed look like manzanita
  2. Thank you. I now remember this event; I am sorry to ask you to revisit what must have (and still is) a painful time. But I did read a bit more about TJ and wish I had known him.
  3. Yes- looks like first class suffering, especially in only 3 days. Thank you for sharing this. Please remind us about your friend whose picture is in the register.
  4. [TR] Graybeard - South gully 05/20/2018

    Nice. Thanks for reposting the pictures... Remind me what time of year you were up there.
  5. [TR] Graybeard - South gully 05/20/2018

    Is it true the rock isn't anything to write home about?
  6. [TR] Graybeard - South gully 05/20/2018

    Wow- excellent TR and pix. Really love that shot showing Agnes. I recall your TR on that one from years ago. Am considering that sufferfest for later this summer...
  7. Outstanding. Thanks for posting the link.
  8. Shuksan/Fisher Chimneys question

    When we did this many, many years ago, I don't recall needing (or bringing) any rock pro; it's just 3rd class. Up above, if the 'shrund on top of Curtis Glacier is covered up, you'll only find kinda steep snow. We were there in early Aug and had to climb down into the melted-out shrund and then up the other side with only long ice axes and standard crampons (not really recommended). Guess you could take pickets but if you're reasonably competent on snow, you probably don't really need 'em.
  9. Immediate Rescue Help

    I've climbed at PRG with him and also talked with him about his music. Very concerned at this point; let's hope we hear something positive soon.
  10. Fred's Wiki listing

    Just looking around to remind myself of how old Fred will be on his next birthday (93, acc to Wiki). And, down a bit in the listing, is this amusing link: See also-- Snafflehound

    Another vote for the DMMs
  12. Washington Pass conditions?

  13. Thanks for the TR. We ran last year in early Aug and flew in to Indian Creek (Boundary Gauge at about 1.5'). Curious what your gauge level was for this trip. Tappan looks bony!!
  14. Beacon

    Great story- glad justice was served. Growing up in HR, I recall many times when we were parked in that lot after dark with no consequences. Honestly don't know when the Heat got so sensitive. As far as the night-time annual pass idea, seems quite reasonable. I think the thing should be all black- a la Spinal Tap's 'Smell the Glove'.
  15. Snowshoe routes on CC.com?

    Small edit- think you meant Dan Nelson as author of that book. Jim is a skier more than a snowshoer.
  16. Looking for a red Becky

    Powell's says they have the 2nd Edition for only 19.95. But only one copy so act fast.
  17. NEW Blackdiamond Clampons, $150

    Thanks for the troll. Livened things up a bit.
  18. Mt Hood area dispersed camping....

    I've looked at this book and it seems pretty good: http://www.powells.com/biblio/9780988907003
  19. Eagle Dance is more or less south=facing and also high on the wall so you get a bit more day length. I would recommend considering an overnight permit, too, so then you could have a bit more leisurely trip. Other good climbs up there, too; not sure if you can get multiple days on the permit (but perhaps). Have to check notes but I think you can get away with one 70m rope there, too. Lots of fixed gear on that climb, as well.
  20. Nice job, guys. Planned camping is better than unplanned...
  21. Compression shorts... Is that a corrective for responding to one too many internet enhancement ads?
  22. Climbing near Hood River?

    One possibility: http://www.mountainproject.com/v/petes-pile/105884106 Another: http://www.mountainproject.com/v/bulo-point/105980894 Both have surprisingly good rock; the former is more of a trad area and also closer to the road. The latter has shorter routes and is more remote (but easily accessed via good roads for most of the way; check with the local RD on current access).
  23. gear sale

    Thanks for checking. Need a medium.
  24. gear sale

    What size is the harness?
  25. Liberty bell early spring

    I'd take skis and also an axe and aluminum crampons for the gully. Hard to know if the climb itself will have much snow on it. But if you get up the notch ands it looks okay, go ahead. If there seems to be too much snow, you can just descend the gulley and spend the day touring in the general vicinity.
