  1. those 2 foot run outs are b!tch better stick to something easier than a 5.7 next time
  2. thanks for the answers! It's not so much that I'm worried about what I should and shouldn't lead. It was more of a theoretical question raised over a few beers. I am/was very conservative and my regular climbing partner is more of a risk taker. We were talking sh!te about our reasons. He pretty much figures that if he's climbed it once he can lead it. "i've made the moves on that over hang, i can lead it" I think leading is as much or more about your pro sense as it is about your ability to get up crag. I've been taking a break for about 5 years so I'm not leading anything for a while!!
  3. I expect that I might get ripped for asking what might seem like an obvious question but here it goes. How did you decide when you were a) ready to lead easy stuff b)when to progress to leading harder routes? This stems from a healthy beer soaked debate last night. I've always been very cautious and only led things much much easier than what I can climb. My climbing partner du jour takes a more relaxed approach.
  4. The audi is great. It wasn't that much more expensive than my golf and it was the same price as my friends subaru. BUT I still think the best climbing/backpacking/xcskiing/all around alpine activitie we've got is our old Pathfinder. Wouldn't want a new one but if you only want it for a few weekends a year go find a used one of these. Buy the car you want to drive everyday and pick up used rig for the fun and games
  5. and an afterthought... My insignificant other has a an audi A4. It may be the best snow vehicle we've got. It wasn't all that expensive.
  6. I have 2. I have an early 90s Nissan Pathfinder. It's perfect for alpine activities and a VW golf. 3 occasions this year my car would've been inadequate to get there. 2X were ground clearance issues 1X 4WD The golf is great in the snow w/good tires. It's almost better than the 4WD of the Pathfinder on snowy roads. I love my pathfinder in Snow off road situations. Can you keep your toyota? That's what I did. Bought the Golf and keep the Pathfinder as a second vehicle. Do NOT by a newer pathfinder for this stuff.

  14. Thanks! Have rope will travel! Can you suggest any good guide books for this one? All my cascades books are either lacking or sadly out of date.
  15. I've been invited to tag along w/a group going to Guye Peak.(depending on weather) I can't find a lot of info on it. Anybody want to offer anything up? Where can I find some info? Is it worth doing this time of year? Routes? Approach?

    Learning trad

    I haven't climbed much in this area. It's great to get some name/locations of good routes. Where the easiest and closest trad routes to Tacoma/Seattle? I'm just getting back to it after taking several eons off.
