  1. question Ice Axe transportation

    Another option is to get some like 1” inside diameter clear flexible tubing from the hardware store and shove a 6” piece of that over the pick and teeth. Just make sure you take it off before it gets cold outside as the tubing gets harder in the cold and can get stuck in there. cardboard and tape is just about free though and works! I also pack on the bottom of my duffel, pick flat against the bottom.
  2. Nice work, cool map too. And not a single selfie!
  3. I found a historical fire layer map in my Gaia app that was super handy for this. We used em in the Pasayten last year and it was pretty spot on.
  4. What hapened with the site?

    Woot! Thanks Jon.
  5. What hapened with the site?

    Anyone else having trouble loading the home page? I try on my iphone and just get this with safari or chrome. If I go to a sub page it loads just fine.

    Grrr, why'd I have to go and break my wrist mountain biking two weeks ago?!? Go get it folks and post TRs for me!
  10. Little Big Chief

    Here is the route we took, now I'm one step closer to a TR! I think Martin's route started farther right towards the snow patch and angled up those ramps to catch up with the last few straight up pitches we did. The obvious point Kuckuzka pointed out looks like the best rock and probably fun climbing but with little natural pro as far as we could tell, but that isn't the summit. We had another 15 minutes of ridge scrambling once we topped out in this photo.
  11. I love that area too, thanks for sharing your TR!

    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!
