  1. I was going to post a trip report for the Inspiration Traverse July 17-20 from North to South, but the important approach beta would seem redundant. I will just add to the visual stoke and affirm that this is one of the better traverses that I have done in the Cascades. \

    Micheal T. sends the Dragon of Eden! Does your mother have a clue what you are up to? Nice job throwing yourself at a hard project! Mr. Alford ;-)
  5. No joke Jason. Have a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that someone that would do the work to get there would act in such a manner.
  6. Trip: Noisy Diobsud/Stephen Mather Wilderness - Bacon-Hagen-Blum High Route Trip Date: 07/20/2018 Trip Report: From July 20th-23rd Dave, Darren, Matt and I traverse from Anderson Lakes to Blum Creek summiting Bacon, Hagen and Blum along the way. The route is characterized by excellent views of the Baker and Sister Range to the west the the National Park to the east. Awesome camp sites and outstanding alpine lakes make this a most memorable route. Brush bashing wasn't all that severe save the walk down Blum Ridge to Baker River. You won't find me walking up that route anytime soon. I have been doing trips with these guys for nearly 20 years and I am ever thankful for the friendships and the adventures over the years. I would like to have an intense conversation with the douchbag that left a pile of trash shoved under a rock and shitty TP strewn about at the high camp SW of Bacon. Beer cans and mountain outhouse bags don't decompose and it doesn't seem that difficult to pack out your trash. Alpine eye candy Gear Notes: Ice axe, light crampons, and glacier rope. Approach Notes: Anderson Lakes to north side of Mount Watson.

  8. Cool TR. Oh to be young again!
  9. Nice work Michael Telstad! Public service for Darrington Climbers! Way to make the best of a rainy day! Cheers, Mr. Alford ;-)

    Juan- To tell you the truth, I never even saw the the pin (or looked for it). We stayed left on the 51 rib to it's terminus with the glacier. The climbing felt mostly 3rd and 4th class with a couple short sections that could have been fifth. We encountered no snow between the avalanche cone and the upper sill glacier. No Fanta can either mate...sorry to dissapoint.

    On the list Ivan...just gotta fill my good luck bucket back up. Might take a couple years.

    Agreed, the upper glacier climb and summit block is the best climbing on the route and a really classy finish the mountain.
