  1. Came across this post randomly! Well, remember the problems I was having with my ski on this trip? It turns out I had a broken binding. I found this out after skiing the Park HW on the Watson traverse!!! Barely made it back....dyna-fiddles... Lesson learned? Check Dynafit bindings VERY closely for cracks. It was super hard to see but when I flexed the pins in the heel piece, the crack opened up. I had about a half inch of heel travel on that ski. No wonder I was skiing like shit!
  2. Garmont Adrenaline size 28. I wear a size 11. They fit me well. email me at tyreecjohnson@gmail.com I never really check out this site anymore. I live in the sound area. pics upon request
  3. I climbed the DOE tis summer. I can say that its proabally a grade V to the top. Why not...Liberty Crack is a grade V and way shorter/faster. The last part of the route is a long meandering ridge that if climbed directly on the ridge the entire way would certainly be at least grade V. Its a big comlex face with many options to choose from. One thing to consider is that it is very out of character with the rest of the route; considering that I climbed it in my approach shoes(recommended). Next time I will proabably rap off after the hard pitches because those are the goods. The ridge certainly adds to the experience of the route- to climb a big peak like D-tail. But inn hindsight the first part of the route is the best. The rest...well you can decide for yourself.
  4. If you still want the beta let me know. D has my number or I might see you at the Y this fall. Sorry to hear about your wife getting covered with another man's spray...
  5. until the whole damn thing crashes down on the unlucky fucker who happens to be there. the best crag in wa is a secret, and only 1.5 hours from seattle. "was" a secret... Speaking of which: Were is this Equinox Wall everyone's been spraying about? Close to Mt. Vernon? Help a brother out. If it were up your ass you would know...jesus. If you are serious give berdinka a call, he's got my number.

  7. Hey there Bobby. I think that the chimneys may be dry enough to climb by now. Its been pretty dry and unless you plan on doing the 5.12 corner you should be OK by doing the 10d sketchy(not that bad really). All the other stuff will be dry. Super awsome finish to the Grand Wall! Another option is to finish on the retro-bolted/cleaned Upper Black Dyke.
  8. Who wants to go climbing tomorrow? Index or some other place? 10's-11's. I'm driving from Bellingham. tyreecjohnson@gmail.com
  9. Great TR Sol. Idylic is the way I would describe the week for sure, perfect weather with NO BUGS, until the last day... The bolts on the passenger are not set up to aid or even frenchy with. I suppose you could try to do some pendulum friction/tension but I think that you would have better luck trying to free it than mess with shenanigans like that. Thanks for all of the stoak!
  10. Climbed it yesterday with 1 #4 C4... pretty usless, I was run out essentially the entire pitch but the climbng was very easy for 5.9 OW. A #5 might help a bit, but if you really want to protect it you should bring a #6.
  11. The Bellinghm climbing scene suks!!! ask anybody on this site, especially if you are coming from p-town or seattle. There was a thread on this a year or two ago; do a search and you can see for your self...search: bellingham climbing scene sucks.
