  3. 2014/2015 Washington State Ice Conditions

    After a recon' on Wednesday I went back Friday and Saturday for two laps up the practice gully. Here are some pictures in no particular order. There were three other parties climbing it Saturday. In all, there were about 7 pitches of low angle ice and a few steeper steps. The main flow became wetter further up until it became un-climbable.
  4. Hyalite or BC this week?

    sent PM, Lillooet wed-sat?

  7. Trip: Colchuck Pk - North Buttress Date: 4/14/2014 Trip Report: With a sunny forecast and partner lined out, I had to get back into the Stuart range. The North Buttress Couloir had been on my list for a while and seemed like a perfect fit for a shakedown climb with a new partner. We made a casual afternoon start from the gate, stashed the beers in the river and started the march up the road. Minutes later we both swore to bring a bike next time, even if only for the awesome ride on the way back down. We hit snow just after the road levels out. Once we found the snow wasn't too soft we ditched the slowshoes in the bushes and made quick time to the Colchuck turn off. We took the direct route up to the middle of the lake, cutting out all the switchbacks on the way up. We headed out around 6 Sunday morning. The snow was perfect booter to the couloir. In the couloir conditions changed a few times from knee deep to crampon points only. We opted to rope up at the top of the couloir since the snow on the NW face was a bit icier and there was a little more exposure. The route was easy to follow and still had plenty of snow. Clear, sunny views from the summit were some of the best I have seen. The snow on the descent to the glacier was soft and offered awesome glissading. We glissaded the glacier all the way to the lake. Some icy sections made for some of the fastest sitting and three point glissades I've done. The beer was still in the river when we got back to the car, which helped us to forget the slog out. Ready to head back! dragontail and colchuck from the lake colchuck dragontail sunset looking up from the bottom of the NBC beginning of the couloir on the NW face very top of the NW face looking down the NE couloir just below the summit Sherpa, Argonaut, Stuart, Rainier Stuart Glissading the glacier NBC Camp Gear Notes: a few nuts and pickets for protection while simul-climbing. pons and axe.

  8. [TR] Dragontail Peak - Triple Couloirs 4/12/2014

    pretty sure I saw you two walking across the lake. NICE WORK. That's and awesome route.
  9. pan dome falls??

    I climbed it on Friday the 7th...great ice! Seemed pretty brittle, except for the areas with forming ice(thermometer said 10 degrees). I stopped in at the Patrol shack to verify the access. They made it clear that they don't want anyone walking around to the top. Lead only.
  10. I've see ice in a few other spots up there on ramblings. way to get some! Too bad its all getting covered up this week.
  11. West Side Ice

    wow, we saw that from the highway and looked through the binoc's but figured it was probably thin...guess not. How tall was it? how was the approach? WAY TO GET SOME!!!
  12. FS: Lowe Alpine 70 + 15 liter pack

    Lowe Alpine Countour II ND 70L+ 15L. It's my first climbing pack, no idea why it still looks clean and new...maybe the super duty bullet proof nylon? Zippers and buckles all still work, there is a one inch long ski cut on one side, bottom is scuffed but no holes. Would rather see someone use it than collect dust in my basement! $50 OBO, send PM.
  13. More junk I never use...send pm, make an offer. $30 Used thermarest prolite 3, it is a 2nd quality with cosmetic blemish, though i never could figure out what the blemish was.

  14. Getting rid of the gear I dont use often, feel free to make an offer, send a PM. 75$ Used my XGK on a few trips, but its now collecting dust, recently serviced by MSR, its clean and ready to go, comes with spare pump. both pumps work great, one old style, one new with chipped pump handle. Runs on just about any flammable liquid. 15$ MSR alpine fry pan, 8" stainless frying pan with aluminum bottom spreads heat well, aluminum pan holder. 15$ MSR trillium stove base. Adds stability to most MSR stoves, espcially nice in snow or with the XGK.
