    Hi Anthony. I might be interested for this May. I've summitted Rainier about a dozen times, including liberty ridge. I was also on an Ama Dablam expedition this past November. Do you have permits?
  2. [TR] Liberty Ridge w/ Partial Ski Descent 4/11-14

    Strong work Guys. I've done that route but couldn't imagine skiing it. Why is the gate locked in the first place? The Federal Government needs to protect us from ourselves? I respect your act of conscientious objection. I think if more Americans had the courage to push back against the constant encroachment on our freedoms it would slow it down considerably. The NPS has zero credibility after holding us all hostage last October for political purposes.

    Well said Jason. And money and ideology are powerful motivators.

    Good Question FW. I don't mean to sound cynical but it is all about the money - follow the money and you will have your answer. Federal agents, when deployed right, can be effective revenue generators for the government. Maintaining roads, on the other hand, will not generate revenue. I moved to Socal from the PNW a couple of years ago and I have seen the future. Agents everywhere collecting money in any way possible. It is difficult to hike or even drive without being accosted by an armed agent. My wife was recently issued a citation for "stand up paddling without a permit".
  5. Liberty Ridge Advice?

    I did it in July 2010 with two great friends. My only advice would be go as light as possible. Spend the money to get the lightest possible gear and go without anything you don't absolutely need. You should be able to get under 30 lbs - it is a carry over after all. My setup was one venom, one aztarex, and spinner leashes - and I wouldn't have done it any other way. Good for you on hiring a guide. I always learn something new when I go with a guide.
  6. Nice Effort KKK, Keep in mind that Reggie Jackson had the most strikeouts of all time.

  10. Bad experience at Feathered Friends

    I bought a zero degree bag from David at feathered friends on Monday and found him to be very helpful and a great retail professional. Now, if La Nina would just cooperate so that I can get a chance to use it........
