  1. http://www.cascadeclimbers.com/threadz/s...1&fpart=all similar ideas and suggestions.
  2. I wasn't sure where this was Bill. No one ever answered my question about Roosevelt High in P-Town or not. There is a bridge that sort of looks like that in N. Portland (where Roosevelt is located.) This is Bridge town is it not? How many bridges have an old tatty line of crusted out mashies? Sounds like a fun way to spend a rainy Sunday Portland morning. I am not familiar with the park (Ravenna), it sounds like it's in Seattle. A bit of a drive for that kind of fun.
  3. Just got back from IC and it was in the 80's by 10:00 am. There is lots of shade to choose from....Sounds like a great trip!
  4. No ones ran out to repeat this yet? Come on you Rocky Butte aid gremlins.....no takers?
  5. Just stopped there on the way back from the creek. There was three feet of snow at the bathrooms at the Breadloaves!! One was being used for storage and the other was about 10 inches from the toilet seat....that suckah was FULL! The Crack of Doom is a solid 10 with an 11 move or two into it. Bloody Fingers and Beef Jello are good as well. I highly recommend the OW right accross from the water pump! It'll take four #6 Friends. Take a #4 camalot and a #5 Friend for the belay. You can walk off. It's 5.10 OW. There was no snow lower down below the Bread Loaves. Have fun and bring a belay jacket!
  6. Here is an e-mail from the Friends of Indian Creek. If you are headed there...it will be helpful for you to bring your own wag bags, so that there are plenty for folks to use who were unaware of the current issues at the creek. I'm headed there tomorrow for three weeks suckas!! peace, G Hi All Here is a quick update, to let you know the latest. On April 7th, Greg Child presented a slide show on a traverse of Comb Ridge and the findings of many Ancient Anasazi ruins, at Mondo Café in Moab. We had a great turn out, and through the sale of raffle tickets for some fantastic prizes from The North Face and Gearheads, we raised $560.00. So a big thanks to Greg for a great show, and thanks to all of you who came to support the Friends of Indian Creek. People have also been making donations in the donation box at Gearheads – thanks to you too. And, we have raised over $200 from the sale of Friends of Indian Creek t-shirts at Pagan Mountaineering, so thanks to the t-shirt buyers and of course to Pagan, for doing such a great job of selling them. We have 4 kiosks situated at Indian Creek now, complete with wag bag dispensers and donation boxes. The American Alpine Club provided the funds for these kiosks and 1000 wag bags. We are pleased to say that we are almost out of wag bags. They seem to be a big hit and people are discovering that using them really isn’t that bad, and obviously realize the alternative of trying to dig a hole where someone else hasn’t already been before and having to pay fees for the privilege of going to Indian Creek is not really a very desirable one. So again, thanks to all of you who have taken the bull by the horns and are helping to save Indian Creek as we know by using your wag bags. Also, thanks to those who have been making donations. As I said, we are almost out of wag bags, and we will need to buy more, so donations will be gratefully received. Keep your eyes and ears open for the next FOIC slide show. We are in the process of lining up some more entertainment for you, and this will be posted on the web site and an email will be sent out. Well, keep up the good work. Things seem to be going great. As long as we are all out there doing our bit, we can make this work, and we can continue to enjoy Indian Creek as we know it. Bye for now, Emma Medara

    Anyone been there?? I leave in two days would love more beta than the crusty old guide I have. Adventure is always good if no ones been there.
  8. Is the last pic "Lizard Head" at the Phantom Spires?

    Check out the basketball fan in the background of the last picture. Classic team sports fan!!
  10. Indian Creek, Long Canyon, Mexican Mountain Road all have single pitch splitters in 70 degree temps right now. I'm heading there in 3 days! There are guidebooks out there for these areas. As far as the hike...Comb Ridge is cool for hiking around killing time. Cliff Dwellings and great rock art pannels. Buckhorn Wash is a good spot to get onto Comb Ridge...being that it is like 80 miles long or something. The town of Bluff UT is nearby and could steer you in the right direction.

    I have the beta from the book that's out of print. The 10 routes or so that were in there. Anyone have any current beta on routes out there? I am headed to IC on 4/20. We were thinking of stopping on the way down and checking it out. Any beta or contact info for who has the beta would be greatly appreciated.
  14. Those bomber anchor bolts were just put in about three years ago by CM. Most of the belay anchors were a cluster of mystery metal and bad bolts. You didn't find humor in clipping those large wood screws bent into a circle and stuck into some lead sleaves on pitch five? Did you climb any of the other routes out there?
