  4. Injury on Baker???

    It is all bullshit, this is the axe ident that they are talking about: I was cruising the North Ridge Solo last weekend and whilst descending the coleman -deming- I stuck my X-15 in my tool holster and said " I better not fall and buss my ass or that X-15 is gunna cut me a new one- I took 2 steps and fell on the pick- It stuck in my leg and I pulled it out. No biggie- hell, didnt even need a band aid- Couple of Coleman Route people axed me what was wrong and why was my leg bleeding a oozing hole- Told them I stuck my leg and it was broken by the pick.
  5. Why Join American Alpine Club?

    I joined for the IRS 503© deduction. It works like this: you ask for the sponsorship letter from the AAC. You claim that you are going to Alaska to "explore" the mountain environment. (some remote mountain somewhere) - Naturally, you keep all of your expense records, food, flights, clothing, and you itemize the deductions on your 1040. This is agressive accounting at its best. Also the $75 fee is tax deductible. Let's see, my $75 membership fee returned a tax return advantage of $500 - go figure.
  6. 7.6mm Ropes and Snow Bollards

    I am using twin 7.6mm ropes and have some concerns about them cutting into snow bollards while on rap. Anyone out there dealt with this before? Also I have thought about putting a 2-3' section of flexible foam pipe insulation around the rope to create more surface area at the top of the bollard. I have never had problems with a 10mm or 10.5mm; however, the 7's look like they could be a problem
  7. Canadian rockies partner

    When are you going or plan on going? I have a group of three going to Kain Face on 8/24- 9/2 (depending on weather window). We may be interested in a strong 4th person. You could always jump on our rope up to the dome and solo the NorthFace if you choose.
  8. Johannesburg Mtn

    PS. Ran into a grizzly bear on the south side the first time I climbed Jberg. It ain't a black bear either (I used to bowhunt em'). Any wildlife biologists know what the lowdown is with a grizzly there? - I have one on video from the Ptarmigan Traverse between Yang Yang Lake and the ridge below LaConte Pk. It was taken 8/96
  9. Robson: Kain Face or Standard

    Has anyone out there done both of these routes and have a preference of one over the other. Are the standard route aesthetics good as in not a lot of people and some route finding issues?
  10. Sawtooth climbing

    The Elephants Perch climbing shop in Ketchum/Sn Valley will give you some beta if you have a specific route in mind. It really depends on what you are looking for. The Elephant Perch is the place for multi pitch clean granite. Logistics are pretyy simple- just like insect said-
  11. Boston Basin Permits

    Last Labor Day weekend I traveled from Boise to Boston Basin for W Ridge. It was raining and shitty and we thought we would have no trouble at Marblemount getting a permit- Wrong!. We said "fuhk it" and went up to the Cascade Rd trailhead and lo and behold- people were scurrying out because of the weather. We scored a permit from another party and went up to the high camp- female ranger nazi stopped us and we explained our sorry and hurtin plight. She ticketed one person because she felt so bad for us- $50 was a non issue compared to the 10 hour drive. They seriously need to fix that permit system. We honestly did not think anything about it since we got the permit from another party that bailed off

    Jarrad, Did you go to EWU in Cheney?
  14. Deaths on Rainier

    My two cents of experience Tried Lib Ridge in June 97 and backed off at Curtis Ridge before getting on the Carbon. We decided weather looked risky. Retried in June 98 (same weekend RMI killed that dude on the slide on the DC). We had a foursome. One guy in the group made the dumbass statement "Ive climbed Rainier 3x and weather never is bad up here" Needless to say, we got hammered at the top of the black pyramid by a nasty moving storm. We decided to summit rather than risk the descent on unconsolidated snow. Our group was literally picked up off our feet and thrown several times by the wind descending the Emmons near the summit. I have warned several people that they need to go over and do the DC a couple of times before lib ridge. I suspect the route is just starting to get hungry for fresh meat.
  15. Volunteer oportunites

    Q: How do you get a Nun pregnant? A: Dress her up like an latar boy! That joke has been around for 20 years. The newest and latest scandals within the catholic church are nothing new. Hell, Pope Nicholas 1385-13? was well known for having sex with his daughter ( and having her husband killed). Maintream Christian religions are only about brainwashing and control. Once we start to hold the political and spiritual leaders of this country in the contempt they deserve; our quality of lives will start to improve ( talk about some serious thread creep )
