    Wandering in the Rain
  1. anothet idea but there are a few moderate climbs out in the British Isles at Exit 32. 5.5, 5.6, 5.6, 5.7, 5.8, which i think you can walk to the top of and settup a tr. they're trad lines so dont get the attention the sport lines do? pretty short and in the shade as well. was thinking about taking my girls there for their first trip outdoors. Keep the ideas coming as i defintely want to get the little ones out this summer.
  2. Where oh where did all my sprayers go?

    omg, you fuckers are still here!!!
  3. Single Malt Scotch

    Back to the Important things About to kill off a bottle of Talisker Dark Storm
  4. Climbing Partners

    Cant get out during the week, but am looking to get out to Exit 32, 38 or Index this weekend, weather permitting. 8s to 10s is perfect, as is a mix of sport and trad. If weekend works let me know. Cheers Josh
  5. Have a couple free weekends and looking to get outdoors on some real rock. Haven't gotten out much lately but should be good to lead 5.8/5.9 trad and mid 5.10s sport. Happy to belay harder or do the leading. Have a full rack and rope. Even up for aiding city park. Have a dog at home, so either she would need to come, or would need to stay within a reasonable day of Seattle. Contact me on the thread or by pm here. Cheers! Josh
  6. Mt Stuart rescue?

    Does anyone know about a possible rescue on Mt Stuart yesterday? We were up on Ingalls and saw a helicopter hovering really low over what looked like the Cascadia couloir. Hoping everyone is ok, and it was either training or nothing too serious.
  7. Index on sunday?

    Anyone up for Index on sunday? I'm looking for some 5.8 and 5.9 mileage to knock the rust off. Have to belay harder or easier too. Message me if interested. I'll be out tomorrow, but back in the evening so arranging may be last minute.
  8. Looking for climbing partners in Seattle

    Anyone interested in Index on Sunday? Mostly trad. Looking to get some 5.9s in. Rogers corner, maybe Princely. Message me if your interested. I'll be out tomorrow during the day, but back in the evening so arranging it may be a little last minute.
  9. Woohoo! Saturday and Sunday it is. I'll pm with a phone number and contact info.
  10. Seattle Based- Weekend Washington Warriors

    Anyone looking to get out this weekend? Up for local stuff near Seattle.
  11. Looking to do some local cragging this weekend. Exit 32 or 38, Index, Anacortes. East side looks too damn hot. Haven't climbed too much lately but I'm probably up to lead up to 5.7 or 5.8 gear (maybe harder with some warp up), and 5.9 to low 10's Sport. I can belay 5.hard and am happy to follow. Happy to ropegun / teach some gear or follow. Hell, I'd be open to single pitch aiding in Index for that matter. Needs to either be close enough to seattle I can get back to let the dog out, or mellow enough to be dog friendly. I know that's a narow band but I'm desperate to get out! First free weekend in far too long! Have a full rack and rope. Also looking to get out next weekend with more flexibility and without the pup. Easy alpine would be great as well. Cheers! Josh
  12. Looking for climbing families.

    Where in Seattle are you? Our girls are 3.5 and 6, and were kind of in the same boat. It's been a slow few years but hoping to do a lot more hiking and other things this summer.
  13. SOLD - DMM Wallnut Set + Cams

    I don't need them but, Wallnut's are the best Nuts on the market! Only thing in competition are the DMM Alloy Offset nuts but those are best in addition to a set of wallnuts
  14. Routes You Don't Onsight

    Smith Rock, Calamity Jam at 5.10c. I've got a standing off of a 6 pack for anyone who can onsite it, and are mere mortals for whom 5.10c isn't just a warmup Great well protected pitch and had my first falls on gear figuring out that arch!
  15. Teachers Strike

    I'd love to teach, and taught courses all the way through UW, with another course at Seattle U. To some degree I teach now, only to more junior engineers. If teaching salary at any level (BS, MS, PhD) were even close to competitive with private industry I'd be doing it in heartbeat. Compensation levels are high enough to keep people with a true calling to it and thank you to everyone doing it! But they are not high enough to attract people who are on the fence about going into other well respected, well compensated fields. Otherwise I'd be teaching right now, and I'm sure I'm not the only one.
