  4. Any BC residents know if Duffey Lake, Marble Canyon, Bridge River, etc around Lillooet survived the recent warming trend?
  5. Those crazy Oklahoma cowboys. Looks like climbing the side of a beer can. At the 35 sec point in the video the commentator says: 'instead of being like artificial rock climbing this is actually real ice climbing' please.... Linky to the video

    Mods, The gallery seems to be acting up. Happened on Friday about 12 noon Error Screen Shot
  7. Todd, Nice work on Hamilton. I've been wondering when you would get back on those flows. The last time we roped up together was on Blackjack back in '99. That was a great season in the Gorge. Sport climbing? What you talkin about? You know that ice and sporto don't go together. I'll PM you my number. Give me a call. Pete
  8. Pete's Pile info plus responses to various questions and comments The area with the belay bench and mid anchors is dry. No ice forms there. The ice climbs are all south of there. Anchors Establishing an anchor on top for most of the ice lines is challenging. Trees on the bench above the wall are more than 200' back except for the far right side of the cliff(pic #1). There are no anchors above the climbs in the first 5 pics. There are chains above the climb in the middle of pic #6 (labeled left side). The bench above the cliff is littered with large boulders. Bring long slings to wrap them or you might get lucky with rock pro. Some of the walls at Pete's including the wall in pic #8 has spring/summer/fall climbing restrictions because of a rare plant that resides there. That's probably why there are few anchors on obvious ice lines. Parking The pullout for Pete's, located south of the Cooper Spur road on hwy 35 at the south end of 8' high netted rock catchment fence along the east side of the hwy, is blocked in winter by a snow bank from plowing the hwy. Park on the west side of the hwy about a half mile south of the normal pullout. ODOT has a large pullout plowed for the campground and access to trails. Approach From the normal pullout on the east side of the hwy hike up and left through a steep forest. The cliff above is about a half mile long and parallels the hwy, so it is difficult to miss the crag. In summer the approach is under 15 min. or Just follow the tracks we layed down on Friday. It is not suppose to snow/rain until Wednesday, so our tracks will be there for a few days. Now I must get back to the Badger game.
  9. Drove the Gorge mid afternoon Wednesday on my way back from E-burg with my head hanging out the window. Another tease. Almost all climbs visible from the road are THIN or have flowing water in the center. Ainsworth middle third pitch is blank, no ice. The upper and lower sections have a narrow thin streak of ice. The climb with most ice from top to bottom is Wayne's test piece Black Dagger (did I get the route name right?) The Washington side flows were not in either. Kudos to Dustin for scratching up Mist in the dark. Double kudos to Amy for waiting in the car.
  10. Linky Summary The city of Portland will charge residents for the removal of leaves from city streets. Fees will range from $15 to $65.

  13. I'm attending the memorial for Dallas on Saturday. Traveling from Portland. Willing to pick up others along the way. I would rather not travel alone. PM's please. Thanks, Pete
  14. While chatting with Beacon yeti JH heard word that said Ivan was fighting his way up Dancer. Noonish I strolled over to have a look and you were just above the roof. You looked detained at the time so I kept my hello's to myself. Around 5pm when beers were looking better than another pitch I walked by again before heading for the barn. Kyle had finally gotten off the belay and was extracting a pin in the same spot where I saw you 5 hours prior. Felt sorry for Kyle having to belay for 5 hours from a hanging stance. Ouch! You own that man a life time of beer.
