  6. [TR] Jo'burg- East Ridge (solo) 7/15/2005

    How does it look up to the col from the north now?
  7. Climb: Hoodie-Wy'east Date of Climb: 6/30/2005 Trip Report: Trying to repent for my corn-walking-down ways I took a ride down Wy'east. Headed up the dog slog one more time and, with tail tucked firmly between legs, downclimbed the ridge to the top of the main face. Previous days had been very warm so I figured set-up snow was thin and would break through with too much softening. Launched a little early, 0730, but below 10,000' was perfect. Skiied down to 9000' then hiked around and down into White River. Skied out the glacier and back to the Palmer. The exit was sketch due to extremely soft conditions around the cracks on the west moraine. Lots of probing. I'd reccomend heading down lower on WRG and finding a climb out with fewer holes in it. First downclimbing section on the ridge. Looking across next traverse from same spot as above. The last downclimbing part links the snow patches from the snow slope center right down and left. Upper part of face. Lower Wy'east Whole deal. Skied upper right till below rocks and into the runnels, then traversed left and headed down pristine corn.
  8. [TR] Three Sisters- Four Day Traverse 6/13/2005

    I was hoping I had them too. It must be a sin to lay a ski-less boot upon some of the corn I was walking down. As for Chriznitch: The ammo box is there, but the note book he put in there last year is gone. If anyone with an interest in summit regs is heading up North Sis, you might consider carrying up a new Rite-in-the-Rain.
  9. Climb: Three Sisters-Four Day Traverse Date of Climb: 6/13/2005 Trip Report: Just because all the cool kids are in the Sisters. Here's some some snaps for all you conditions hounds... South Middle and North Middle Broken, South and Bachy North Topping out the Bowling Alley Bowling Alley exit Looking down across the SW face of North
  10. Hood, W crater rim?

    Currently should read "The postholing-to-the-knee-thru-breakable-crust descent is the South Side route." I suspect going up WCR would be about about the same right now. Need more melt/freeze for all the accumulation from April.
  11. A snow year so suck...

    ...that it made the BBC! http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/shared/spl/hi/pi...ging/html/5.stm And to think we might be in worse shape this year.
  12. Multi-pitch 'stuff'

    Thanks for the tips A, AD & D I believe this is what dru is speaking of.. http://www.live-the-vision.com/boardfiles/0411/8141.html Might get to try one of these options this weekend.
  13. Multi-pitch 'stuff'

    Just curious how you come out of THOS. We just rapped/downclimbed the route. Is there some way of returning to the valley from that big upper bowl of THOS?
  14. Yocum condition

    Lower Yocum today. If you ain't there this weekend.....you're nowhere!
  15. Heres a view of Rooster Rock this morning. You might check over there for some runnels or something.
