  1. [TR] Diobsud Buttes - Standard 04/16/2020

    SNOWSHOES? I thought you were allergic to slowshoes. looks fun. how is that area in summer?
  2. 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.
  3. for sale Osprey Exposure 36 pack -- $30

    size or one size fits all?
  4. 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!
  6. 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.
  7. 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?
  8. One big magazine

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

    there is a pretty good thread on cascade footwear that may be helpful for your gear choices.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. well they could make it less easy to get up the pole? install raging honey badgers ontop every pole? or maybe just a guard(with a leashed honey badger) up and down the cable way. or let it run 24/7?
  13. review Footwear in the Cascades

    maybe your shoes are too tight to hike in? why can you not hike in approach shoes? My toes get a bit beat up hiking down with approach shoes. had to buy some alta trail running shoes that have a very large toe box to hike in. first world problem.
  14. 2 things to note 1. that person or persons is bold AF 2. there were no counter measures to prevent it from happening again??
  15. I know Robin! did not know she was out there helping. Looks like I need to go spend more time on 3 oclock.
