  1. [TR] Mt Shuksan - White Salmon Glacier 1/28/2007

    Dude, Spence, you forgot part where we were sprinting in the dark from the noise of the not so obvious location of the ice fall/avalanche. (1 of 3 rips on the hanger while we were there... Scary stuff!) Nice post bud. I was just about to write one up, and you beat me to it. I would like to dedicate this climb to my buds Dougy and Beny- who pussed out b/c the skiing would not be good enough. You boys missed out on an epic adventure. It was better that you didn't go! I got Spence all to myself

  3. Mount Baker Rescue

    He's f%$&ing lucky to be alive. Bad glacier etiquette! Hope the surgery goes well. I wonder if the event will make the Western Front?

  8. Snow Caving in the Olympics?

    The upper part of Mount Elinor is a great place to cave, and not far from the car at all. You can park at the lower lot at Hurricane ridge and the rangers are usually cool about giving lifts back up to the top if your patient. Paradise is also a great place but very crowded at times.
  9. Ptarmigan Traverse

    Dude, get the skills. Its one of the most beautiful trips I'vs ever done in WA. Totally worth the time it takes to learn cevasse rescue.

  11. Climbers Guide to the Olympic Mountains

  12. Avalanche Canyon above Lake Constance..snow??

    I was in the lower middle portion about 2 months ago and there were two extreemly small patches left. Im sure snow is non-existant this time of year, in that area.
  13. Nice TR. Sounds like a typical olympic adventure. You should really give Pershing another shot, its got a pretty sweet payoff.
  14. [TR]Mt Olympus Climb 7/17-7/20

  15. gspooner- Did you think the FT was under rated by the omgc? A kick ass climb though huh? Wauna Tree
  16. Mt Anderson info request

    Lets go fly over it! Mabye we wont be able to tell the status of the schrund but it would be a cool flight.haha
  17. Come on man it only had 6 errors, haha. Not sure if I was drinking that night, although I do often find my self surfing the net while intoxicated. Safer than climbing or flying.

  22. Fairweather- I will definitely post some as soon as they get developed, I just got back from the east coast so itll be a few days. I would love to take on an Oly peak with you some day, ( Im more happy to trade a flight for a climb, let me know).Oh and yeah we did come back the same way, I set a few nuts and slings, but that piton was a nice reassurance. By looking at the TT i just assumed I might as well go back the same way ( a tough decision after hauling 4 pickets up there.) Thanks again for the help. Todd
  23. Undermind-Are you serious I live on camp seymour haha whata yah know. Crampons came in very handy. Fairweather- thanks for the chat and advice. Did the finger traverse (very appropriately named.) The summit may have changed or mabye Im a puss but we had a hard time getting on top of the summit block had to do some exposed 4th low 5th to get up on it. Over all it was a very burly Long ass climb.I think the OMCG under rates the mountain Thanks for the help. Todd 5hr up from lake 3 down Bikes were the best part
  24. Undermind, Thanks for the tip. Im heading up constance tomorrow and i guess my pack will be 5lbs heavier. Where in GH are you at?
  25. Did you use or feel you needed crampons at all? based on the current conditions.
