  1. Fantastic TR; I couldn't stop reading it. The climbing looks better than I might have expected, but the trash and BS with guided clients seems really trying. You guys did it in great style!
  2. Pickets classic!
  3. Ptarmigan ridge- Rainier early season

    We've had a good bit of fresh snow lately which could result in a wallowfest and/or avalanche hazard.
  4. That's quite the piece of work! I read your winter Cathedral TR. Having been there several times in the fall (via the border crossing), it's a beautiful area to hang out in. But to ski in, tag Cathedral and Amphitheater in the dark and ski out the next day..... whole lotta misery if you ask me.

    Is that N Hozomeen from Ross Lake via the Skyline Trail?

    ^ Nice. Did you camp up there?

    Here's to lazy summer days.

    Oh heck yeah. She still has that thing.

    We could have ice conditions that we haven't seen in decades. Here are some pics of Index Town Wall from around 1989 or 1990. These were taken at the end of a similar arctic-geddon. I had been out of town for most of the cold snap, and the day we were here the temps were warming up. Note the HUGE missing column in picture two. No way I was capable of doing that then, now, or ever, but there are some crazy good climbers around now. (We climbed some slabby WI2 by the RR tracks) I'd love to see someone bag this if it actually forms up again!

    Not that I am worthy, but since Jason's a bit slow today.... (He's probably out in the hills.) I've always liked this one. It goes WAY back to one of the last times I climbed with him when we did N Twin Sister in December 2004. He was just a young whippersnapper then, and I wasn't such a fossil.

    Therein lies the rub.

    Jason, when exactly is your coffee table book coming out?
