  1. [TR] Forbidden Peak - North Ridge 07/15/2018

    Looks great - thanks for the TR!
  2. Mt Hood

    Great! Thanks!
  3. Mt Hood

    I am thinking that there was a lot of snow this year, so the Cooper Spur might still be in shape this coming weekend. Anyone been up there who can provide some beta on snow conditions?
  4. Non-technical loops near Cascade and Easy Passes?

    A couple of weeks ago I made a loop from Easy Pass to Silent Lakes, then to Fisher Pass via the south slope of Arriva, then over into the basin below the Douglas Glacier, and from there down to the trail and back to Easy Pass. With a light pack and/or a little determination this is about three days. I took longer, and climbed Arriva, Fisher, and Logan as I passed. I used boots and axe in a couple of places, but the only place I put on crampons was on the Douglas Glacier, which is optional. The whole trip was never more technical than second class, with some bushwacking. I recommend it - it was a lot of fun.
  5. So, Shasta...

    This is a good suggestion. I've done this myself a couple of times, and nobody has hassled me yet...
  6. North Sister?

    Ooh - that picture is just what I needed. Even if the north side has more snow, a traverse across this c*!p would be required. Thanks! I'll save it for a better time.
  7. North Sister?

    Business will take me to Oregon this week, and I'm thinking about trying to sneak in a volcano climb when the boss is not looking. But... it seems late in the season. Are the north-side routes on the North Sister still in acceptable shape? I won't be able to ski, but I'm not interested in a choss slog.
  8. Where's those Montana types?

    One word: Beartooths!
  9. Photo Caption?

    Turns out that one of these guys died. http://www.cnn.com/2004/US/West/05/18/climbers.stranded.ap/index.html
  11. Great Article on oil!

  12. Naked Hiking

    That's Californicania for you. It's too cold to do that up here.
  13. My REI wish list

    ... Chance to spray REI, yuppies, and Annabelle all at once ... priceless!
  14. puter question: cheap cd r/w worthwhile?

    The cheap one works for me... It's all digital, but speed might be worth paying a little extra for.
  15. What "They" Say About Us.

    Are you kidding me? Climbing is an immature, big talking activity that's only for the young. That's why I keep doing it, even though I'm in my 40s. Anybody in the "climbing community" that has a problem with that should get a life.
