  1. [TR] Johannesburg Mountain - NE Buttress Solo 08/01/2018

    Great work. Soloing puts one in such a unique mental space. Way to get after it on a BIG mountain. Be prudent and safe. Don't allow hubris to take you too far too fast. Enjoy pushing yourself!
  2. Mysterious Backpacks on Stuart's WR

    Just throwing this out to see if I can locate the owners. We found two backpacking style packs on the WR of Stuart the other day. They were heavily sun faded. Found them stashed in a small rock crevice below the West Horn more or less. I went through the packs as they seemed out of place and as though they'd been there a while. I was wondering if someone had abandoned them or maybe if someone was injured on the mountain. We found a wilderness use permit "tag" that was dated 8/5/2017 with two names, Tim Pale or Pate, and Jim Schiller. (This obviously told us that there wasn't a current emergency nearby.) A quick internet search revealed that these two were in an accident on the mountain and had to be rescued via helicopter. One actually lives in the same town as me, Camas, WA. Crazy. Anyhow, the packs are still there as is some random gear, a couple 30M ropes, etc. If anyone knows these guys or if either Tim or Jim see this post, feel free to reach out to me. If you'd like the packs back, they're not all that hard to recover if a person would be willing to pack them up to the summit and down the CC. Otherwise, this just makes for an interesting piece of knowledge if you find yourself on the WR of Stuart and stumble upon a couple of mysterious backpacks.
  3. Looking for two climbers from Seattle, Chris and Chelsea. I met them on MHC and Vesper. Anyway, if you're out there, this is Jarred. Send me a message or something. I'm hoping to invite you to some fun times involving deserts, climbing, and fall/early winter timeframes. Take Care
  4. Slesse Conditions 2018

    Anybody have current info on Slesse and the glacier in the corner pocket? I imagine it doesn't usually slide this early but with all the early warmth maybe I'll get lucky. I've never been up there so don't have any first hand knowledge to go on. Anybody, anybody??? Thanks

  6. I have a plan to climb the complete NR of Stuart, then Backbone on Dragontail, then Stanley Burgner, with full rest days between. What I don't have however, is a partner. If you're interested in this let me know. We could meet up and do a bit of climbing beforehand to see if we're compatible. I've done all of these mountains but only the NR regarding the routes. I'm planning for midweek is possible and will just try to grab a permit the day of. This has worked well for me in the past. My timeline is flexible as I'm a teacher and will have a lot of free time after June 21st.
  7. ANybody know if there's a shoe out there that has both ankle protection (like Sportiva's TC Pro) but also velcro closures instead of lace ups? I realize there are slight chances where velcro might be an issue with crack climbing, but I really love taking my shoes off while belaying and I want some ankle protection when trad climbing. I've looked around but can't find anything. Thanks!
  8. 3Couloirs...Dragontail

    Anybody been up Triple Couloirs recently? I'd imagine it's thin but assume it might be in. I'm a 5 hour drive away so am hoping to wait until it's definitely in, to make the drive. Thanks!
  9. Anybody been up Lethould Lately?

    Any idea how long it took you from parking lot to summit?
  10. Anybody been up Lethould Lately?

    Next time for sure. Just looking for a solo day today. Beacon? Now I'm jealous. Dry?
  11. Anybody been up Lethould Lately?

    Just did the route today. I haven't climbed snowy mountain routes other than the south side of Hood in about 8-10 years. So I'm sure I'm not the best gauge of how difficult something is. I've climbed the route with a tool and axe in the past. I had two tools today and although I appreciated them on more than a few occasions I think a tool and an axe would have been ideal. There's some steep terrain on the Reid depending on how high you cross. Traversing below the rock ribs was a bit of everything, hard alpine ice, styrofoam, unconsolidated snow to knee high. Once in the couloir you can stay in deeper snow, or utilize more ice on the sides, whatever you prefer. There were a couple spots where it seemed like I HAD to be on front points, no snow to plunge into. Lots of front pointing on the route in general. Up top be ready for deeper snow from ankle to thigh, then some of that chandelier ice Hood is known for, before you hit the summit ridge. Had it to myself today despite a million people on the SS route.
  12. Anybody know if the Edelweiss ropes have good handling? Move through devices easily, etc? What other brands get high marks in longevity and handling these days? Anybody used the new Black Diamond ropes? Thanks
  13. BEACON ROCK partner wanted

    Anyone want to do some moderates and a bit harder at Beacon? I climbed the Corner the other day and that was my first introduction to Beacon. Sweet place. I'm a solid climber looking to get back into climbing after years of kayaking, biking, and running. Let me know if you want to get out. Looking forward to the routes under 5.10 and working my way up to climbing 5.10 trad as I did years ago.
  14. PARTNER FOR ALPINE AND OTHER

    I'm in Camas, WA, looking for partners to climb in the mountains. Outer Space the weekend of Sept 10th or 17th if the weather is good? Honestly, I'm looking to get back into climbing after a long hiatus. I'm 40, super solid head game but have been kayaking, biking, and running for the past 10 years. I climbed the WR of Prusik last year and have done some cragging. I really want to get back to the alpine world. In the past I've climbed a lot of routes in the Cascades up to 5.10 trad. Now I should likely do some more moderate climbs to get back in shape. I can hike and run all day but need to get on some stuff like Stuart or Outer Space or things like that to get back into placing gear and using the climbing muscles. I'm a good communicator and won't sandbag anyone into getting on something I'm not ready to climb. Who wants to take a chance? I haven't fished around for partners in a long time. I'm hoping to meet some local climbers that can become somewhat regular climbing partners. Feel free to text me: three six 0 eight 2 3 6 6 six 4 Jarred
