  1. Hood South Side TRs

    I wish I climbed something big like south side of hood. really. I do.
  2. [TR] Mt. Stuart - Ice Cliff Glacier 05/24/2020

    in the photo of you in the upper basin, roped up for glacier travel and under a couple of large ice blocks, (6th photo) what do you think they are? are they chucks of cornice that fell down? or crevasse blocks? Seems like a strange place for either.
  3. We did that climb in mid 90’s and I think we used Grajales also. They didn’t serve food back then. That food looks way better than anything I can make at home!
  4. 2020 Weekend Warrior Climbing Partner

    I wonder how many times one would need to climb GNS to call it a el cap day? maybe 20 times? there is a goal right there.

    you forgot to mention the approach requirement of less than 10 minutes. downhill or maybe flat, both ways. sounds like a good trip to me.
  6. Best place to resole rock shoes

    or your footwork is 16 times better.
  7. Best place to resole rock shoes

    I sent some la sportiva shoes to tahoe gripwork and they did some great work with quick turnaround. they only do the La sport shoes though.
  8. Washington High Routes and Traverses

    sweet resource you made for us. thanks! oh the possible dreams...........
  9. Climbing this spring (and maybe summer)

    Good thing I have a fear of falling. I can count all my lead falls on one hand, I don’t even need a thumb. This makes your advice super easy to follow.

  13. Makeshift Roofracks at the Border Xing

    not related to roof rack but some general advice for border crossing coming from an actual border guard I met once 1. always have your hands present at border. I usually keep on hand on steering wheel and other hand on window/door casually. Hiding hands is sign of hiding something else. 2.always look at border agent eyes. avoiding eye contact is another give away of hiding something. 3. just tell the truth. they look for facial signs of lies. you can not act your way out of these tells. 4. be somewhat tidy but not too tidy with gear. Look "normal". this may be your stopping point with diy roof rack but if the rest of the points followed, maybe not a real issue. 5. don't be a jack ass or Funny. duh.
  14. Letter from PMR President about CCSO

    I am not very familiar with the situation but I thought that it was more of a command and control thing. The sheriff would not be doing the rescues but command the situation and ensure proper education or something like that.
  15. [TR] Strobach - Strobach D Approach Pitch 02/09/2020

    the wood is so wet that it can be used to support the frypan over a fire and not burn?
