  5. Mt. Rainier questions

    I believe the FF drops to the Wilson Glacier, not the Nisqually. I have only climbed it once and it was pretty icy above the couloir. Not being a skier I really don't know how Icy conditions expert skiers can cope with but there were some places we did protect with screws. I glissaded the couloir itself and imagine it would be great to ski.

  12. [TR] Chimney Rock - East Face Direct 7/17/2010

    This is a nice mountain. I didn't finish the route as I bunged my feet up pretty bad in a fall about 2/3 the way up the rock. As to Potterfields problems, he was not on the East Face Direct when he fell but was traversing over from the U notch toward the East Face route.
  13. How many people climb Mt Rainier in January?

    It is certainly less crowded up there this time of year. I did the climb once in a party of three on a New Years Weekend. We didn't see anyone past Camp Muir that day. And the upper Mountain has a special wintertime spleandor with the fresh layer of snow. When we did it it was a clear calm day and had been clear for the better part of a week so the we found pretty stable conditions up there. It certainly was cold but I have seen it a lot windier up there on summer climbs than it was that day. So a lot of it is a matter of being lucky enough to have good conditions for the occasion.
  14. Accident

    It was about a week into July 1990 I climbed Monte Cristo Peak with a couple friends. As one of our party stepped from the North Col on the descent she lost her footing and fell about 700 feet. Although it looked pretty dramatic, it was not a freefall but just a very steep uncontrolled slide down the snow slope. And, fortunately, although rather stunned, she was not injured. Had she gone over some crags that she managed to slide between it could have been a far more distastrous outcome. I am sorry to hear that this woman from Duvall was not so fortunate.
  15. Backcountry Shuttle Services?

    many years ago I used a shuttle service for hiking in the Leveanworth area. I don't know about goat rocks though. You might call the packwood ranger station to look into it.
  16. People really keep track of this!?

    WOOHOO!!!!! According to the 'Fifty Finest' list, Mount Rainier has 17 more feet of prominence than K2.

  18. Thinking of buying a scooter

    I've been riding a vino 125 for a year now, and really like it. I got rid of my car back in june and this is my mode of transportation, and the bus when it rains real hard. Although it is no good for freeway driving, I did ride it from seattle to portland last september using the same rodes that the stp bike ride does and it performed great.
  19. Fly Fishing anyone?

    Last time I climbed Ranier was with Steve Norris and his son Chad. They're pretty active with one of them clubs.
