  4. Last Ascents in the Cascades

    I think carrying nitro is illegal in public lands. makes great stove fuel though.
  5. Last Ascents in the Cascades

    maybe someone can make it spicy by throwing a ladder over that big crack. then we can get all everest style points.
  6. Last Ascents in the Cascades

    From what I heard, there is a walk around that monster crack but it puts you under some hanging ice fall in the moustache area. Like 10 minutes in the possible firing line. Let the buyer beware if they choose that way.
  7. Suggestions on where to live

    Minus the cancer, it would be nice. but couldn’t one find a parking garage in downtown Seattle for like $20/day and van life it there?
  8. Suggestions on where to live

    that is so f'in nuts. $140/night. for 3 months rent, you could buy a nice van and live down by the river.
  9. Last Ascents in the Cascades

    maybe you can knit a big net to catch all those falling slabs.
  10. Suggestions on where to live

    bellingham. damn I love me some bellingham. you can find careers there. Educational clubs courses? they have a bellingham mountaiineers club. for solid internet remote location crew, there are lots of them in mazama. damn fine place that mazama. What about requirement for winter skiing/boarding? that could make the choice easier.

    you are right about individual risk but the chance of Someone getting the chop does go up would be interesting to see registration number for amount of people climbing lib ridge. I thought that the amount of people was essentially the same for the last 30 years considering it is a 50 classic.

    The point Bob is making is to spend less time in the hazardous area. Spend 10 minutes or 8 hours under crumbling mud pile or under hanging icefall? All about minimizing risk, not eliminate risk.

    I had heard of some big ice fall activity on the Buttes. ice fall crossing over the uptrack. Your last photo looks like ice fall that stayed near the cliff itself. Did you see any other big icefall?

    Tvash and partner had a rock fall into their tent at that camp spot too but they were climbing it kinda late in season.
