  1. Climb: Prusik Peak-West Ridge Date of Climb: 8/21/2004 Trip Report: Climbed the west ridge of Prusik on Saturday. 15 hours, 24 min, car-to-car, from the Colchuck lake trailhead. Rained the last 3 hours of the hike out. This was my first trip into the Enchantments and I was blown away. It is beautiful up there. Saw two other guys on the way up to the base that were "working on a line on the south face of the west ridge"??? Gear Notes: Nuts (3-10), couple of hexes, couple of tricams, and cams to #3 cam. Couuld have done without #3. small cams not much use either. Plenty of natural pro to sling. Approach Notes: Didn't seem to far going in, but its a long way out.

  8. Pack has SOLD, thanks. Selling my Cold Cold World Valdez mountaineering backpack. Retails for $115 plus tax and shipping and I had a couple of upgrades added to this pack not mentioned on the webpage including a full hip belt with gear loops. The pack is used and a bit faded from the sun but no worse for wear (no rips, stains, tears, etc). Fully featured w/ ice axe loops, crampon attachment, skis slots, removeable lid (which turns into a fanny pack if your into that kind of thing). 'One size fits most' and according to manufacturer fits torso lengths from 16-20". I'm asking $75 obo as although its a bit older and faded there is absolutely nothing wrong with it whatsoever.

  9. NOOB Questions: Disappointment Cleaver Late July

    leave the wands at home. they aren't necessary on the DC in July.
  10. 30 meter rope on Rainier?

    Keep looking - I don't do 2-man glacier travel (so far). We carry a second rope all day for a 3 or 4 man team. My buddy did a two-man team with some random idiot, other guy didn't watch the tension, rope draped down into a crevasse, got mega snagged, had to cut the rope. Trip = over. Extra rope might have been nice. Super random, but happened. okay, I'll keep my eye out for it...
  11. 30 meter rope on Rainier?

    I did so now I take out my "on routes like the DC" and my statement still stands. I don't know any 2 person rope teams that carry a second rope for standard glacier travel.
  12. 30 meter rope on Rainier?

    No offense here, but I don't know any 2 person rope teams that carry a second rope for a route like the DC. What would you do with the second rope? (rescue situations?)
  13. 30 meter rope on Rainier?

    Most people use a 30-35 meter rope on Rainier (for a rope team of 2-4 people). If you know what you are doing (i.e. that you do not need 50+ feet of rope between people and in fact this is quite unsafe, slower, and not necessary) then a 30 meter rope is quite reasonable and preferable for Rainier and other glaciers in the lower 48. (this does not mean that if you don't know what you are doing then you should go with a 50-m rope....) The diameter is an all together different issue. 8mm is on the thin side, but not unheard of. I for one like a slightly thicker diameter rope for Rainier (and other glaciers), but if I'm sure plenty of people use an 8mm rope safely.
  14. I'm selling a Jansport Eichorn 60-L, mountaineering backpack. Its brand new but I have way too many packs and need to get rid of a few. Fits torso lengths 16-19" via 'grid-fit' system. 4 lbs 11 ozs. You can go to the Jansport webpage(click) for more info on this pack. Asking $150 obo. I live in the Seattle area and could meet up to save on shipping if you are local to me. PM me here or better yet email me at: balderach at g m a i l dot com [img:left]http://cascadeclimbers.com/plab/data/516/IMG_25651.jpg[/img] [img:left]http://cascadeclimbers.com/plab/data/516/IMG_2564.jpg[/img] [img:left]http://cascadeclimbers.com/plab/data/516/IMG_2571.jpg[/img]
  15. FS: leader's pack, $25

    Homemade leader's pack for sale. Weighs 8.8 ozs. Removeable foam 'frame-sheet' can shave an ounce or two and then pack doubles as a stuff sack. My buddy made this for me but I never use it any more. Small internal pocket, removeable 'hip-belt', draw cord cinch around main body, single ice axe attachment, and reflective tab (hence bright spot in picture). Someone is going to ask how big it is - which is valid question - but I'm not sure. 20 liters if I had to put a number on it. $25 obo.
