  4. BD #4 C4 Camlot. Good condition. One available. $40. Available near Seattle. Please DM if you are interested. Thanks!
  5. Winter is on the way! $500 Very good condition Black Diamond Justice Skis with Diamir Fritschi Freeride Plus touring bindings--175 cm. Skis and binding show very little wear. I only used these skis once. I believe skis and bindings are the 2009 models. These skis show normal wear in the form of some superficial scratching (see photos). Ski bases are in particularly good condition; binding are in excellent condition. Text (425-312-1784) or PM me. Thanks!
  6. New, in the box; never used. 2013/14 model. Retails for $599; asking $400.
  7. I'd be surprised if you got any pictures of James where he wasn't either flipping off or mooning someone.
  8. I climbed Squamish Buttress for the first time the same day as you (although I ran up a very wet Diedre instead of Calculus). I was actually quite surprised by the crux pitch—I expected it to be of the character of the pitches below it; i.e., soft; however, it was anything but—a solid .10c. Arrived at that pitch around 11:45 AM I think—it was still in the shade and substantially wet. I onsighted the pitch, but it definitely had me worried; while the crack does have a couple of good finger-locks, between those locks I felt rather insecure. Overall, I didn’t think that pitch was as special as I’d heard folks claim it to be—it’s okay (and is probably the best pitch on the climb), but not “classic” as I define the term. What’s your take?
  9. I've lead SBD a few times--I think it protects fine up to the bolt. One of my favorite Vantage routes. The bolt that remains isn't really necessary (but is nice, I always clip it). The route certainly doesn't need another bolt--completely adequate natural protection exists.
  10. Two Axar ice tools with Black Diamond Android leashes for sale--one hammer, one adze; very good condition. Comes with an extra (unused) pick. $250 obo (shipping not included). Cheers!
  11. Trip: North Early Winters Spire - West Face Date: 7/17/2010 Trip Report: Good route. The 5.11 section (soft) is short with good rests; actually felt the 5.10 pitch above it was a bit more strenuous. Near the top of the 5.11 crack, you are forced to traverse left past a bolt into a different crack system--although some guides suggest setting a belay higher in this crack system, the pro and position are better for belaying (IMHO) from the point at which the system is entered, as opposed to higher up--just a thought. FYI, right now, if descending via single raps, you'll need a 70 meter rope to avoid having to down-climb snow gullies. I believe I lost my driver's license (due to a faulty pocket, and, perhaps, inadequately caffeinated brain) somewhere between the TH and the second pitch of the climb--if you happen to find it I'd be grateful for its return. Gear Notes: Medium rack to 3 inches; I found RPs and C3s to work well for protecting the crux pitch. Approach Notes: Snow free.
  12. Yes. Feel free to PM me; happy to point you in the right direction.
  13. Climbed Skookum yesterday--done in 2 rope stretching pitches. Good times. Ice slightly funky, but decent pro is achievable. No wading required (this year); river easily cross-able via a few rocks and a butt-scoot across a log. Climb won't last long--go get it. First pitch:
