  1. Bought in Nov., used 11 days in Antarctica (i.e. not in dirt etc.), it's in beautiful shape. $100 (new $239 but cheaper deals online) Call Tom- 206-819-3776, or email tmilne@remotemedical.com
  2. Katadyn filters blowout-

  3. Crested Butte

    CB rocks. Lived there a season, a true ski town. "Bony" mountain w/o a solid base, so be prepared. That being said, extensive steep fall line skiing. Double black there actually means something, you can get seriously hurt inbounds. Epic local crew. Amazing backcountry options right out of town as well. Red Lady, Axtel, Snodgrass, White Mt., Teocali, Baldy, Gothic, the Anthracites, Irwin Lodge area. Those above named bars are classic, good potential for fights at Talk of the Town too! Plenty of local flavor, major drinking + in CB. It's a cold place at the end of a road with solid skiing and limited female quotient. Not as much skiing for kids, but enough and they will love the area. Safe, authentic, beautiful. Go there!
  4. The tent and fly are in great shape, one single pole section and the peg at the bottom of it needs to be replaced (it's currently "rigged" so it works fine but you'll want to make the fix). The Trango 3.1 is a phenomenal tent for winter camping and expedition mountaineering. Bomber in major winds. 3 person tent but are very sweet for 2 people, as it gives each person plenty of room. Good headroom, plenty of storage pockets/areas inside. There's a "moonlight" type opening and clear panel at the top. Has guye lines already attached, and come w/10 stakes, although where it's going rocks or snow anchors tend to be used more often. 4-5 years old, has seen 2 Aconcagua trips and a few days at altitude in Mexico, but other than that not a lot of use and well cared for. New retails for $575, and the footprint for $50. Happy to answer questions and show you how to set it up if you do end up buying. The tent needs 1 new pole section and a "peg" for the bottom of that section to click into the grommet. Should be a pretty easy fix. Here's a link to this year's model on the MH website: http://www.mountainhardwear.com/Product.aspx?top=1428∏=2022&cat=1446&viewAll=False Here's a link to the footprint: http://www.mountainhardwear.com/Product.aspx?top=1428∏=2310&cat=1449&viewAll=False Here's one for the "gear loft": http://www.mountainhardwear.com/Product.aspx?top=1428∏=196&cat=1449&viewAll=False Email- tmmilne@yahoo.com
  5. Great tent, make me an offer!
  6. 1 left, the tent @ $245
  7. I have 2 of these for sale- one needs a repair on a pole section, so that one goes for $245. Each of them also comes with a footprint, and the $280 tent comes w/a "gear loft" as well. Both tents are in great shape, and are phenomenal tents for winter camping and expedition mountaineering. Bomber in major winds. These are 3 person tents but are very sweet for 2 people, as they give each person plenty of room. Good headroom, plenty of storage pockets/areas inside. There's a "moonlight" type opening and clear panel at the top. These tents each have guye lines already attached, and come w/10 stakes each, although where they're going rocks or snow anchors tend to be used more often. They are 4-5 years old, each has seen 2 Aconcagua trips and a few days at altitude in Mexico, but other than that not a lot of use. New they retail for $575, and the footprints for $50. Happy to answer questions and show you how to set them up if you do end up buying either or both. The $245 one needs 1 new pole section and a "peg" for the bottom of that section to click into the grommet. Should be a pretty easy fix.

  10. That's kick ass. Epic jaunt

  12. Serpent's Head on El Pico De Orizaba

    Fully second the Hector recommendation. I have worked with him 9x there, he's solid, connected, and one of the funniest guys I know. No brainer to have him at least organize your trip and driver. Lots of melting down there in the last few years, a heads up.
  13. backpacking crib?

    We have the thing you're talking about, it's called the Peapod. http://www.kidco.com/main.taf?p=4,5 It's light (maybe 3#?), not too compact, but works really well for any travel, as well as outdoors or the beach. It gives them their own little zone, you zip up the mesh "doors" and they are covered from bugs etc., won't roll out, and they like the enclosed feeling and tend to sleep well. A friend of ours got it for us, I was initially a doubter, but it's worthy.
  14. Mt Baker, Easton Glacier beta

    At the end of the RR grade there's a flat, sandy area, then you can follow a ridge generally up and leftish that has several rock outcroppings. Ahead, at roughly 6500+ you'll see two big outcroppings, the highest ones in that area, that are side by side with a little "couloir" or snow ramp between them. The left one borders the edge of the deep valley cut by the Deming. You can camp on or just above these, which gets you as high as possible w/o getting onto a glacier. Guided parties like this camp, particularly the R side, and you won't likely see the tents until you are right there, so if it's slammed up there it might be a good idea to have scoped sites just below the area.
  15. [TR] Georgian Caucasus - New Routes 5/16/2008

    I have pics of Shkhara, Shtavleri etc. from the N if you'd like to check them out; not sure what aspect you skied but may be on there. Email me @ tmmilne@yahoo.com
  16. [TR] Georgian Caucasus - New Routes 5/16/2008

    Nice! Were you guys on Shkara? I've spent months ogling lines on those peaks while guiding Elbrus. The Svan live right on the other side of the Baksan valley, I've met a number of Georgians over there. Like the classic Svaneti towers in the video. How was the Kindzamaruli and Xvanchkara? Definitely will try to catch your slideshow and say hi.
  17. Turns in July/August???

    Go to Turns All Year, tons of NW tr's daily from this big PNW snow year that should give you access to some solid turns this July. Rally!
  18. Denver Beta?

    In Eldo, there's a mini climb, a 25'+ slab at the west end of the park that's good for taking the minis tr'ing on. It's on the left, just before or at the turnoff for the picnic area at the back of the park. Another option is the climb's on the Whale's Tail, where you can climb a 5.4, 5.6, and 5.2 from the same spot. It's exposed getting to the ledge at the bottom, and you wouldn't want him to fall off of there, so protect vs. that. Breezy is a good choice too, leftmost climb on the Wind Tower, 5.5 with a walkoff. Flagstaff would be another place to rig up some basic tr's too.
  19. Spilling The Beans: Nason Ridge

    Got to echo the fact that Kerns is a badass. You wouldn't hear that from him, but the guys pulls down.
