  3. Trip: Hyalite - Zack Attack Date: 12/8/2006 Trip Report: Climbed Zack Attack the other day. the climb has to be at the top of the list for my favorite ice climbs in hyalite. Found all the ice to be in great conditions except for the second pitch which was a bit brittle. Approach and view of the route Pitch 1 Pitch 2 Pitch 3 Pitch 4 Gear Notes: Standard set of screws depending on your preference. Assortment of pins, TCU's and a #2 Camalot Approach Notes: Solo G2 and just keep going

    The AAC and the Mazamas=local government Really?
  5. Beacon

    There is someone from the American alpine club right, another the mazams, seemed reasonable to have those groups have a say.

    Climbed starving Marvin today. Great shape. Took 13cms the whole way. Stuff looking good out there. Looked like people were climbing mist as well.

    Pins pulling? Thought I had been assured that would never happen on the south face.

    Except for the fact that checking a pin requires you to carry a hammer around all the time. Which is just so damn reasonable. Personally I would love to see some actual real scientific data that says pins last longer than bolts and are safer.....

    That second pin in the above picture is why I think it is stupid to keep replacing shitty pins with pins that will soon become shitty

    Very nice, stoked to check this out, thanks for the gardening work.

    I was just trying to troll joesph. I myself haven't been on the Dutchman, so my opinion matters none. However I don't generally like fixed gear unless it is a bolt. Scares me.

    All the pins out at Beacon are bomber. Joe check each and every one of them constantly. No need to replace a bomber pin with a shitty bolt.
  20. Next time you should come. Got my eye on a couple out by detroit lake
  21. Pics coming soon! Can't upload from my phone. Still can't believe those tatas and that flaming van.

    Meet at 5:00am and nailed the first lap of the corner! Back at work in downtown portland by 9am. Really wanted to curb stomp that Closed sign.

    Joe you act like Trad climbers and different than sport climbers and that they are completely separate user groups. Also you act like there isn't sport routes already at Beacon. You get a grip and stop acting so old, you remind me of a republican that is still bitching about roe v wade.
