  1. Nice work Jan, My wife and I made an attempt some 20 years ago, going up by your descent route. We didn't bring anything but an ice axe in the way of gear and we also backed off the main peak not far from the top, mostly cause we wanted to live. Rambler Pk. and Golden Hinde Elkhorn Mtn. and Landslide Lake Also, the lake below the east face is known as Landslide Lake from an event that occurred in 1946 the scars of which are still quite visable today. Landslide Lake And Mt. Colonel Foster
  2. Trigger Extensions on Camming Devices

    Why doncha just not place yer cams so deep?
  3. Someone upthread talked about these pictures are smokin, here's one thats burning. Stoking the fires of hell about 30 years ago.
  4. Elwha Wall(Olympic Peninsula) Beta

    Here's a picture of the first free ascent of the route V at the Elwha
  5. Elwha Wall(Olympic Peninsula) Beta

    Sherri, The Elwha is usually pretty slow to dry out (lots of seeps). If this weather continues you may find a few pitches dry enough to climb (Earth and Sky, One shot Deal, and possibly The Trench)would be the most likely subjects. Also, there is other climbing available in the Port Angeles area that is less known, quicker to dry, and has some climbs more in the 5.8 range If interested pm or e-mail me, and I'd be happy to go out and climb with you and show you around.
  6. Mellow winter climbs?

    If the road to Hurricane ridge is open Mount Angeles is a easy day objective.
  7. [TR] The Sentinel- Steck-Salathe V 5.10b 10/19/2006

    Another route to do if ya don't mind 5.8 to 10- chimney and offwidth climbing is Geek Tower center route. Very obscure, do it when the falls are running strong for a perspective on the falls that all the tourists on the trail can only dream about.
  8. Name that route

    Looks like we are still at Smith, but I don't recognize it. Is it up on Staender Ridge? By the way fgw Doctor Doom it was.
  9. Name that route

    Looks like there's alot to get excited about in your picture Blake. Where is that? Mine is not near Crack of Infinity, nor popular 5.6/7 skyline ridge route, nor is it Brain Salad Surgery or Last Gasp. It may be Smith's finest offwidth though thats not saying much.
  10. Name that route

    Narrowarrow, Right area, wrong cliff.
  11. [TR] The Sentinel- Steck-Salathe V 5.10b 10/19/2006

    Isaac, If I remember correctly I went right from the top of the squeeze. I don't remember much about loose rock in that area, but compared to where I come from all of Yosemite seems incredibly bomber. Seems that we made the top of the flying buttress in 5 pitches.
  12. Name that route

    Frosty, Not Blue Autumn, further south.
  13. Glaciers

    White Glacier about 1925, maybe someone has a recent photo from same view point on Hoh trail to post up for comparision?
  14. [TR] The Sentinel- Steck-Salathe V 5.10b 10/19/2006

    Nice job guys ,sounds like you bypassed what I thought was the crux that 5.9 squeeze above the wilson overhang. Awesome climb. The view from the stance below the narrows
  15. Favorite climbs!!!!

    For easily accessable single pitch stuff I sure like this one:
  16. Name that route

    Bruce, Seems that your guess is for #1 which Dru got (though he cheated) it is Left side of Reed's Pinnacle. No one has got #2 yet.
  17. Name that route

    Yer not supposed to cheat though assbite, here's another easy one:
  18. Name that route

    Might be an easy one:
  19. Roya'l with cheese

    Hey Ross, I assume you mean the Needles, if it were me I'd just leave the rope and rack at home save a bunch of weight. Everything in the needles is like 5.4 or easier, pro is sparse and often sketchy so you'll be running it out anyway. Some sticky rubber might be nice, not manditory tho. Have a great time.
  20. Beta request: Mount Mystery

    Have not gone to gunsight this way, but I did climb Mt. Mystery from the end of this trail once years ago. I remember it being a long day.
  21. Mountain Huts - what's the deal?

    Perkins you are getting soft! Crazyjizzie seems to be the most rational one in this discussion. Meanwhile I'm getting kinda old too, and I'd sure like to climb that Stanley - Burgner route on Prussik suppose we can get the Forest Service to build me a road up there so I can enjoy the wilderness too?
  22. ISO

    Hey Muffy, crying and whimpering on lead is considered aid, consequently you may not have bagged that coveted free ascent of Bunny Face. Please advise K.
  23. upcoming guidebook

    Yeah brother I'm sure people will be beating a path out to the peninsula to spend countless hours hanging in their harnesses wearing out numerous wire brushes creating another choss master piece that no one will climb. All kidding aside if I could get to Index in an hour I'd never climb at these dirty crags out this way
  24. Suggested Routes at Vantage

    Catbird, Disaster factor takes a couple of long slings (for the chockstones) then smaller than tips to finger size above there. It's great fun too, if yer into that sort of thing. Cheers.
