  1. New sport climbing guidebook (kickstarter campaign)

    copyright issues? like copying verbage from other guidebooks? and the access issues? Shouldn't the access should have been sorted out before any route development happens? I suppose I could go on that thread but it sounds depressing.
  2. Can you identify this mountain?

    photo op. looks like they walked from photographer to ridgeline and than back
  3. Can you identify this mountain?

    People may do strange things for a good photo. For all we know, heli drop the three and they booted 10 yards (or meters) back to heli.
  4. Can you identify this mountain?

    interesting combination of human in photo. we got a group of three backcountry skiers (so not a heli ski outfit) and what looks like a guided group of three (based on the lead person rope coil choice) If in cascades and possibly early spring due to depth of bootpack, I can't think of any usual guided locations with that back drop. if it was accessible by non skiis, there should be lots more ski tracks.

    SNOWSHOES? I thought you were allergic to slowshoes. looks fun. how is that area in summer?
  6. One big magazine

    I can not stand using online route guides while climbing. (like mtn proj and others) not only is it hard to navigate and find routes but staring at the damn phone while out there is against the spirit of climbing. flipping a page is so much better than a swipe and touch and swipe and touch. UGH.
  7. for sale Osprey Exposure 36 pack -- $30

    size or one size fits all?
  8. Looking for recent TR's for N. Cascades

    Maybe try nwhikers dot com or some other hiking website. Not really Prime alpine climbing season but the hiking is OK.

    wasn't rocktober this weekend unless you went to vantage. ugh. was raining in the icicle!
  10. same thing at lake loiuse gift shop. In the heart of one of the grandest mountain ranges in NA, take your photo with a stuffed grizzly and a mountainous backdrop of.........shuksan.
  11. Conditions Report: Static Point

    I wonder if it is along road or the trail? says trail but I thought the trail was in old growth forest?
  12. One big magazine

    the pessimist in me thinks we will get the same Climbing mag without any improvement.
  13. Ptarmigan Traverse Questions?

    there is a pretty good thread on cascade footwear that may be helpful for your gear choices.
  14. Mec has been all downhill since they got rid of the serratus line of packs.. I love my genie pack which they no longer make.
  15. review Footwear in the Cascades

    thanks. great article. I admit that I am the old school that suffered too many dirt trail miles in plastic boots. I thought I was smarter with lighter leather ice climbing boots. time for a real rethink about that and try some of those options given.
