  1. question HELP!! Small feet, can't find boots!!!

    My wife found her single mountaineering boots, 6.5, on Sierra Trading Post, ordered several sizes to find the right one and sent the rest back for free. Might try that option for doubles. I also might look at back country ski boots. The new ones climb just as well as old plastics. Might have better luck finding small sizes locally as well since the bc ski market is bigger.
  2. FS: Silvretta 300 ski bindings

    Wow, 7 years! I have some old approach skis and salewa tour bindings if you are looking.
  3. Sorry! I just wanted to share the info for the future. I guess we've all taken our tools for a long walk in he bushes though, it's a Cascades passage but bummer on the phone. I'd head back in this weekend if anyone wants. Not sure how it will all fare though.
  4. Doh! We did your same scoping from the road and a few mins down the creek on Sunday. Then we drove to the end of the road and did a fun 3 pitch wi 2-3 next to the demon mine. Might get snowed under and rained out this week though.
  5. 2019/2020 OR/WA Ice Conditions

    Found some fun moderate ice below Lennox Mtn! About 3000’ so may be getting rained on and the road may no longer be easy to drive. Low snow made avy danger a non issue this weekend.
  6. review Denali - Ski Boot Help

    Wildsnow.com had some detailed Denali ski planning posts from 2018 and 2019 that might be worth reading, sounds like some like bigger boots and some made due with 40 below overboots or similar. It does depend on your feet, overboots won’t help if you don’t have enough circulation.

    Cool, that looks great!
  8. FS: Solo Aid Self Belay Device, Climbing Ladders

    Wow, that’s a 9 year old FS ad! Better luck posting a wanted ad!
  9. Belay Device Survey for Highschool Engineering Class

    Link doesn’t work.
  10. 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.
  11. Nice work, cool map too. And not a single selfie!
  12. 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.
  13. What hapened with the site?

    Woot! Thanks Jon.
