  1. hi -- yes, please. i will try to pm you, but if i don't figure it out, please pm me... thanks,
  2. my car was broken into in a parkring garage in downtown Vancouver. rope (green), 3/4 of a full rack (mostly BD cams), two pair shoes (muiras and mythos (purple)), two harnesses (BD alpine, petzly rock), grey helmet (CAMP) -- all in a white 4500 cu in A5 haul bag (white). if you see offers on the street or interwebs, please help a brother out...
  3. looking for Seattle-based 40-something to long, free and moderate WA rock climbing this fall (WA pass, index, squamish (inshallah), alpine objectives). former mtn guide for many many years; now a desk jockey, but still move fast and light and safely on everything -- please be of same/similar skill set.
  4. buying a new GPS sports watch for BC skiing, mountaineering, long trail runs, sometimes biking -- standard dirtbag stuff. please weigh in with what you like and why -- thanks.
  5. Anyone have an ID on this person? http://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/crime/rock-climber-dies-in-fall-near-leavenworth/
  6. article suggesting they were most likely swept off by an avy in the night: http://www.outsideonline.com/outdoor-adventure/the-current/events-expeditions/Making-Sense-of-the-Mount-Rainier-Tragedy.html?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=facebookpost
  7. media reports say "Tents, clothing, and debris were located by helicopter searchers, over Carbon Glacier". i don't think searchers would have identified/observed 'tents' unless those tents were set-up before the fall to the carbon. that is, it's improbable the 6 were in the act of climbing, fallen, and had their tents come out of their packs to the point where they were identifiable from SAR flights. as such, wondering if this means clients were moving slow and they had an unplanned bivy around 12,800 and were avy'd off in the night (or hit buy big serac)...? any inside intel?
  8. 2 guides and 4 clients; Matt Hegeman from AAI is identified. http://blogs.seattletimes.com/today/2014/05/six-climbers-missing-on-mount-rainier/ A heavy day.
  9. can leave Seattle at 8p on 24th, then climb all day on sunday and monday (returning v late monday is OK). rock ice snow -- all OK, though forecast says east side rock climbing looking best for now. best partner for me is whomever has tons of experience and wants to do long and wild moderate, optimizing fun
  10. now open on saturday and/or sunday. i need a fix real bad; enable me, please
  11. now needing to do anything long and free, anywhere in the range, can meet late friday night at TH. with <48 hours to go, i am officially desperate and begging.
  12. proud proud line. kelsey knows how to under-rate and scare the living shit out of you, but you'll be back: she's just starting to pull up her skirt
  13. can one ski off the pass back to the car? lmk if you have any beta since the 4/28 post on here -- help save a brotha's knees...
