  1. I'm not sure what BSL stands for, but size 27 boot (if that's what that means) and I got them at the end of 2010. I only used them for search and rescue, so very limited use (I primarily snowboard).
  2. Selling a couple of items for my climbing partner/friend that passed away, so I don't have all of the logistics, just photos of the gear. Both items are in superb condition and the profits will go towards his son's college fund. *Bivy Sack... $125 OBO *Sleeping Bag... $250 OBO (not sure of the rating, but this bag is worth a lot more for sure. Used up in AK.)
  3. This is for my buddy. After assisting and celebrating a first summit for a special friend, we were called for a rescue. My bro's whippets were on the Hogsback, only to find them gone hours later when we began to lower the subject down. PM me if you have them or you know someone who does. Thanks.
  4. Mark's Wife asked that I send this out to local climbing community... Tuesday 6/19 2pm; Memorial Service followed by a brief reception. Lewis & Clark College (0615 SW Palatine Hill Rd., Portland, OR 97219), in the Agnes Flanagan Chapel. Please carpool if possible. Gathering to follow at the Cartier home. Out of respect for Mark’s style, we request that you shun ties and wear your favorite products from Nike, Mountain Hardware, Columbia, BD or Patagonia. Bonus points for anyone wearing Shox or Nike Futbol or Sorel or climbing boots/shoes. Your outpouring of love and support has been humbling. In lieu of flowers, we request that any donations be made in Mark’s name to Portland Mountain Rescue http://www.pmru.org/contact/donation.html, the organization which helped Mark, and The Smith Rock Group at the Bank of the Cascades, https://www.botc.com/ where donations can be made directly to the account. The Smith Rock Group is devoted to protecting and supporting Mark’s beloved Smith Rock. http://www.cascadeclimbers.com/plab/data/500/Mark.jpg[/img]
  5. Ivan... He was wearing a helmet. Benb... I received your number from RH and will catch up with you soon as the family would appreciate any info or thoughts that you have. Mark had become a close friend and climbing partner of mine in the past few years and I am so thankful that the cc.com community has been so respectful and kind. I'll never climb with anyone better.
  6. After your experience, what would you recommend as far as the Boston Peak traverse? Stay lower or is that even an option?... Heading up to Buckner this week. Thanks in advance.
  7. We came across a couple of short patches of snow on the descent that could have probably been bypassed. Not much snow left on the south side overall.
  8. Ranger station was closed, but that's a good idea (should of thought of that myself). I'll throw them a call tomorrow.
  9. Trip: Black Peak - NE Ridge Date: 7/9/2011 Trip Report: *Our intention was to climb Buckner, but after hearing the road was still closed a couple miles out from the Cascade Pass TH, by chance we came up with our Option B... Black Peak. *Weather was perfect, snow up to the base of the route, and the rock was much better than expected. Overall, a great day, a cool mountain and a somewhat easy car to car for N. Cascades standards (although we were whooped by the time we got back to the truck). *Beware of the Black Peak mountain goat... He was our friend for the whole day. In fact, he climbed up and descended the south ridge with us. Then he turned on us and went "aggro"... snorting and jumping up on his hind legs. He wanted food, but all I offered was my axe. Then, he ran after my partner. Hopefully the guys that were camped out at Wing Lake had their gear in tact when they got back from their climb.
  10. Thanks for the quick response. Much appreciated.
  11. Anybody been up in the last week?
  12. Does anyone know if most of the route is still on snow and is it worth bringing skis up? Heading up the route on Friday. Thanks.
  13. Found camera today (5/24) near the start of the "climber's trail". Describe it and I'll get it to ya.
