  1. S. Brother conditions

    Goat Boy: Its pretty bad. Most people park at the washout and hike in. Actually, I'm the only person I've seen drive past it and park at the trailhead. I've got a 4x4 F150 and a 4x4 bronco that make it over with some coaxing. The Putvin trail is roughly 2 miles from the washout. Talked to a ranger up there 2 weeks ago and said they were supposed to start clearing it anytime. As of Friday it was still untouched. Your trail pass dollars at work.
  2. S. Brother conditions

    Cool. I opted for Mt. Stone instead. Great hike with a fun scramble at the end. Be sure to bring your 4x4 to get past the washout though.
  3. Wide climbing shoes

    Anyone know of a good pair of high performance, wide as hell, lined climbing shoes? I've got damn wide feet and I stretch the hell out of all my unlined shoes, to the point where I can't backstep to save my life, and all the lined ones that fit on my foot end up having a big gap at the toes because my feet are too wide fit into the correct size. I've tried Miura's and the typical REI stock, and none of those work. Any advice is welcome. Thanks.
  4. olympic suggestions

    OW: I've scoped the north side routes on Washington. Some of em look really fun. Only bad part is the bushwack in, but this early in the season it shouldn't be too bad. Let me know how it goes.
  5. Das Boots

    Check out the Salomon line. I have really wide feet, and I have had a pair of the rock and ice boots for 1.5 seasons and love em. Only took about 2 hikes to break em in. They can handle long approaches comfortably and trek up Rainier as good as the plastics. Haven't ice climbed in them yet, but I plan to try them out soon.
  6. eldorado

    Anyone been back into eldorado yet this season? I heard the road was blocked by some trees around mile 14 (trailhead at mile 20) a couple weeks ago. Curious if it had been cleared, or if I have to buck up and walk the extra 6 miles. Thanks -Rollo
