  1. I love that area too, thanks for sharing your TR!
  2. [TR] Buckhorn Mountain - High Traverse 11/18/2018

    Nice, I love this that time of year. I camped on the ridge between buckhorn and marmot pass once in late November and watched the clouds fill up the valleys in the evening with the sun setting on clear skies above. Amazing!

    A couple friends of mine skies over that way and down the valley north of summit chief this spring. I still need to do a TR about going in to the north face of little summit chief based on his pics. Thanks for sharing some good fall scrambling!

    Thanks, those are the trips our lady of the Picketts gives us!

    Me too! This sounds interesting.
  7. Glacier Peak Advice

    I skied it in May which was great, but I can’t imagine not having an axe at least. It’s still chilly and firm up there at times, even if not technically freezing. Way worth the weight to just cruise up/down the snow and not have to pick away at the choosy rock if you have that option.

    Cool, nice work!

    Wow, happy bday cc.com!
  10. question Light alpine shoes?

    I just got a pair of Kayland Plume Micro boot from Sierra Trading Post. They are replacing my worn out Salewas and seem like they will do well for a similar light boot purpose. I haven't worn em outside yet though.
  11. Cool, I've only been up there on skis in the spring. Looks beautiful right now.
  12. Wow, I'm not sure I still want to go there, but there are plenty of other things still on the list! What a great TR!
  13. question Light alpine shoes?

    I have some Salewa Mountain Trainers that have worked well for me for some of these situations. They err more towards mountain boot than rock shoe, but climb fairly well for a light boot and better than your average hiking shoe. The current model is a bit changed though so I can't comment on it, (and now there is also an "alp trainer mid" that looks more hiking boot like). You are right though, there aren't really many good options that do both rock and snow well.

    Looks fun, you can't feel the heat in the pictures!
