  2. Found a new Verizon phone Sunday afternoon about half way up from Source lake to pass that drops down to Snow lake. It was sitting directly on the main uptrack, found at roughly 3pm. Phone is new, has a Blackberry style keypad under screen.

     

    Text Tom at 206-819-3776 to claim. It has a lock code on it so i'll use that to confirm owner. I live in West Seattle, work in Ballard and am working Monday 12-31

     

    Cheers, Tom


  3. Trip: Forbidden - West Ridge (some B Basin conditions/pics)

     

    Date: 9/9/2011

     

    Trip Report:

    First time in Boston Basin in years, rare convergence of high pressure forecast, hall pass, and urge to get out before weather goes South.

     

    Route was great, approach goes to gullies/chimneys (couloir totally out), 1st couple of hundred feet a little thoughtful. Great day.

     

    Attached are a couple of (unfortunately) low-res pics of N Ridge, Buckner, and Boston-Sahale. Still lots of seasonal snow up there, Sahale etc looked great. Permits were easy, saw few people. Great time.

  4. Thanks Matt! I think I was too focused on keeping my 3 y.o. away from the edge when I must have left the TR stuff up there. My fault, but still crossing fingers to get it back.

     

    Attached is action photo of Finn on the first bit. We moved over left for a longer (60-70') pitch next. I took them there because I was aiming for low-key and great views. When Finn got up near the top of the crag, he glanced over his shoulder and stopped in his tracks saying "Whoa! I can see the whole world from up here. What the heck?!". It was awesome.

  5. First time out climbing in 2 years, took my tots climbing for 1st time on Mt Erie and promptly left gear at crag. Just realized it now.

     

    It was up around the top or climber's right of the summit wall. Tally includes camalots 1, 2 and .75 (1 and 2 old school with wire triggers), I think 1 tcu, a few lockers and a couple of regular biners and 2 cordelettes and a sling or 2.

     

    Would love to get them back, beer reward! You can message me here or call or text Tom at 206 819 3776

     

    Thanks!

     

    Tom


  6. Beautiful climb, congrats to all. My 2 cents also would go to Full Tilt as the pitch name as part of the Tempest, commending the solid work by all and as the killer name for that pitch... but I am coming from 100% armchair status (though it wasn't always that way).

     

    Awesome send on that pitch, epic photos too.

     

    That route's a classic anywhere! Over my head, but appreciate it. Another pitch there looks like last pitch of South Face on Prusik, but even better. You all must have had some great times up there.

     

     


  7. Planning to go to Denali, Everest or 8k meters, or Antarctica? Or anywhere butt-cold? These are phenomenal boots. New $799, yours for $375. Your toes are worth it. Used 11 days on a Vinson climb in Antarctica, very clean and limited wear on soles. There are a couple of dings on the rand/gaiter, worst ones pictured below.

     

    This was my second time to Vinson, 1st time w/these boots. They are incredibly warm and comfortable, and light. Amazing upgrade from plastics and neoprene gaiters etc. I won't be going anywhere high and cold for at least a year, so I'm selling them. I am generally US men's 9.5-10, these were the right size for me. Inside I wore a thin liner and a midweight sock, and put in a (non-orthotic/custom) footbed.

  8. Screaming deal. 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 or more, and the footprint for $50. Happy to answer questions and show you how to set it up if you do end up buying. Here's a link to this year's model on the MH website:

  9. Are you or a friend going to Denali, Everest or 8k meters, or Antarctica? These are phenomenal boots at a great price. New $799, yours for $400! Used 11 days on a Vinson climb in Antarctica, very clean and very limited wear on soles. There are a couple of dings on the rand/gaiter, worst ones pictured below.

  10. Ready to go backcountry tele rig. Set up has been used maybe 60 days over last 5 years, almost exclusively backcountry. Skis in good + shape, recent tune skied on 1 day but bottoms could use a little ptex and a grind (no damage to edges etc), worst ding is pictured and edges have been tuned since. I'll throw in a pair of Garmont Veloces, M's sz 10 as well. I am 6' 170, and they ski well for my size. Great all around ski for resort, backcountry mixed conditions, and deep pow. A historical note, these skis have skied from the summit of Mount Elbrus (18,541') 3 times! The binding is the original mount on the skis, the skins were cut to shape for these skis and are in good shape. An inexpensive way to get into tele skiing this year!
