  5. Mine is almost two years old (so shouldn't be affected by recall.) Had great intentions of using it a bunch up at Baker, but moved south soon afterward buying it and rarely (unfortunateley)go backcountry any more. Serial Number on carrying case = 101030 No serial number on inside - various codes,etc.,but nothing that resembles a serial number. Only have 1.
  6. Almost new - $200/obo. Free shipping or pick up in Oly.
  7. Planning on heading to Vantage. Meeting someone Sunday, but wouldn't mind climbing Saturday. I'll drive up and probably be able to get you a ride back to Seattle on Saturday. Richard - 360-570-1778
  8. Anyone up for a trip to Vantage tomorrow. I'll drive. Comming from Olympia. Beautiful day tomorrow - lets go. Call Richard 360-570-1778. Be up late.
  9. 109 Views and not one taker? Come on - going to be beautiful this weekend. Anyway - will be leaving Saturday morning. Give a call at 360-459-3433 if interested. Probably do Gib Ledges, but open to whatever. R.

  11. Anyone up for a trip up Rainer Sat-Sun/mon? Not too particular on route. Weather is sounding good.
  12. Samson, Joffre, Matier, Shuksan, Baker, Rainer, whatever - temps are dropping. Rock would be alright too.
  13. Follow the road up past the gate for 10-15 minutes or so (near gray ski resort shack.) If you look up to your left you can see a stone retaining wall on a switchback in the road higher up. Falls are just to the left of this. Not much water comming down - slow to form. Was up that way during the cold snap around Holloween and was no ice at all.
  14. Was thinking of shorts and tennis shoes. Haven't decided on weather to bring a pen light or not yet. I'll skip the GPS and hope someone believes my account of sub 3:56.
