  1. Nice pics, we stopped after Terror (which dropped some terrifying blocks) but you make it sound cruiser after that. Hah!
  2. Nice pics, your climbing partner is hot! That plane wreckage looks a heck of a lot cleaner and less mossy than when I first visited it like 25 years ago. Probably the traffic!

    Oh no, very sad. Condolences to his family. I only knew him from here but he’ll be missed.

    Nice, I like that your first color is “Dirt Orange”!

    Dang, maybe I have to get on some of these routes still. I’m joining the alpine dad club in a couple weeks though . . .

    Awesome, I had a good time up there years ago, glad it’s still a quiet adventure!

    Looks like a fun ramble!

    It closes? I think it was easy to get around any gate last time I was there in winter, at least from the west side.

    Cool, that’s an adventure! Good weather and snow for it I think.

    Yeah, use white gas stoves for real cold. Otherwise use the poor burn to heat a tiny bit of water and put the whole stove/canister in that, you just need the gas to be warmer and the water helps conduct that heat faster than trying to warm the can in your jacket (then it gets super cold real fast again anyways). Or use one of the metal conducting methods mentioned above. But basically any white gas stove will do way better than a canister in cold, I only use the above techniques if I wasn’t planning on the cold/snow.
  11. Best breakfast for a long day

    Nice thread bump! I can say that 1.5 lbs of bacon is a bad idea. It seemed like a good idea when I cooked up 2 lbs for our party of four but then realized only 2 of us were eating meat and one didn’t pull his weight. Halfway up the skin track on St. Helens I was truly appreciating the meat sweats. Seriously though, early morning is hard, sometimes I make my oatmeal/grits/cream of wheat as others have said but do I extra soupy. I can generally drink it down even if I’m not hungry and it’s bonus hydration. Adding some PB2 peanut butter powder or powdered milk is good too along with nuts/dried fruit. I do find I need more protein than that pretty soon though and eat some sausage/jerky 30-60 mins later.

    TFPU, I feel I’m a few TRs short as well! I may have to go check out some of this obscurity!
