  1. Agreed on the 5.7 r rating on this one. I took a 50 foot factor two fall on the second pitch about 25 years ago. The tree in your first photo and a good belay kept me from much worse outcome.
  2. My spiritual homeland has been desecrated. WTF....climbed that central arete a few years back and the abundance of good gear on solid rock was nearly overwhelming.
  3. Jason- Thanks for the show. Nice photos. The Golden Eagle is amazing, likely a rarer sighting than a wolverine in the North Cascades. I would dare say more elusive than Sasquatch as well, but Darin has seen several of those. Matt
  4. 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. \
  5. Hey, easy there young man...who you calling no-one? Nice job Michael T....crushing it! Cheers, Mr. Alford
  6. 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 ;-)
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
