  1. bowline with a yos finnish.... its not huuuge like the fig8, easy to untie after loaded, easy to tie, and its pretty obvious if you do it wrong. If its comming untied easily why not finnish with a clove hitch at the end, that would keep it from untying (if your worried about that, I've never had it untie before).

  2. Anyone going next week? Looks like the weather is going to set up pretty nice. I'm thinking about it even though I have mid-terms next week, but probably can't get my partner to go, he's not cantfocus.gif like me..... hmmmm. I'll be heading down to Paradise Saturday or Sunday for some snowshoein', maybe I'll get a glimps of Gib Ledges. Someone better get after it next week!!! fruit.gif

  3. Thanks for the beta. I've never been on that side of the mountain, so the route finding issues (to me) are pretty daunting. I don't mind the 5K gain at such a high altitude, but as you described the Carbon it would just seem a heck of a lot easier and safer (no time crunch) to just head to Thumb Rock. I guess navigating the Carbon is pretty much going to depend on the snowpack and the temps.

  4. Hey Dulton, do you mean "Thumb" rock? Never can tell about the crowds. If its good weather and its a weekend and LR is still listed in the "50 most crowded", etc, then there will be company.


    Yeah, I meant Thumb Rock (my bad). Would you then suggest staying at the base of Curtis Ridge and going for the summit the next day even though it would be a really long summit day? Thanks for the info. cool.gif

    The RMI response sounds like FUD.

  6. I had a Denali Pro, but I sold it to get a smaller lighter pack. I took it up Rainier a bunch of times and it worked great except for the extra weight. Although, I've never had a pack that carried heavy loads better, I would say the best expedition pack out there simply for its comfort and HUUUGE capacity.
