  1. What hapened with the site?

    Yeah, I did that on the old site I think. It's kind of cool to look up what routes were climbed in "August" over the longer history. It helps get around the rush when a single TR is posted somewhere saying something is in good shape. At least if you see a bunch of TRs for a route in a particular month for a few different years, you might guess at your chances. I haven't tried to find a way to do this on the new site yet. :-)
  2. [TR] Mt. Torment - Torment-Forbidden Traverse 06/02/2018

    Sweet, thanks for sharing! Looks like a good "day" out!
  3. [TR] Mt Baker - North Ridge 06/02/2018

    Cool, looks like a fun solo!
  4. Nice work, it’s a fun ski!
  5. [TR] Mt Baker - North Ridge 05/20/2018

    Nice trip!
  6. [TR] Moose's Tooth - Shaken, Not Stirred 04/15/2018

    Nice work, what a way to do a "long weekend"!
  7. [TR] The Brothers - Brothers Traverse 05/13/2018

    Cool, I still need to do that one!
  8. Climbing Partners

    Where are you at? If you are on the east side Wenatchee Outdoors has an informal climbers forum and a few folks who get out regularly weekday afternoon. If you are in the Seattle area hit me up or post up here, sometime I can sneak out of work. Index was nice on Tuesday.
  9. Bear Mountain: The Diamond

    Old Lawn Chair? Probably a good story with that! Cushy belay seat?
  10. [TR] Hidden Lake Lookout - Winter Route #2 02/10/2018

    Nice pics, sounds like a fun trip! I need to head up there in winter one of these years. Snowshoer sounds kinda badass to make a sound call and bivy safely, but obviously nicer to get to the lookout. Even nicer when other people bring you the wine and whiskey!
  11. This place is like Monte Cristo

    I like all the people poking their heads in on this forum. I've been casually lazy about posting TRs for several years, but I'll get something up eventually. It does seem like there is a little more activity lately, hopefully the new system helps. Our lack of an ice season doesn't help the winter TRs much either.
  12. Invitation to Karakoram.

    Welcome Khattak! Yes, you are a long ways from the Cascade Mountains but you are certainly welcome to post up here. We have a few big wall climbers on the site and some pretty nice wall climbs in the area (Index, Squamish, Smith Rock, Washington Pass, etc). You should post up some pictures of the walls in the Karakorum you are looking to climb! Maybe that will entice someone to visit. If you are interested in big walling and A5 gear you should also check out the forum on supertopo.com. There are a lot of Yosemite climbers who post there including John Middendorf who designed the A5 Haulbag and is still making innovative gear (he recently had a kickstarter for a new D4 portaledge). He also has the site bigwalls.net which is a wealth of info on his gear designs. Cheers, OlympicMtnBoy
  13. Another great TR, I love reading these! How the heck do you event find the route at places like Duiwelskloof? The lines don't look obvious at all for my NW sense of trad climbing!
  14. [TR] Mt Thompson - West Ridge 12/09/2017

    Nice! Now I feel like I've been missing out! Way to get at it in these odd conditions!
  15. Japan in late February? Suggestions?

    Sweet, thanks JSG! That is great beta, we'll have to check some of those spots out! Do you normally just rent a car there then? And any thoughts on renting BC gear? We will probably only be skiing for a portion of the trip so not sure about dragging our skis around if we might be able to reasonably find some powder boards over there better than ours anyways? Probably take our own boots.
