  1. Would like to climb something close & easy and be back in town by 5pm.
  2. I can get out either Sat or Sun. I haven't done the Ingalls E Ridge before, so I'm not sure if I an lead the 5.7 crux
  3. [TR] Johannesburg Mtn - NE Buttress 8/21/2011

    Great TR! The glacier & arrete look so exciting. I doubt I'll ever attempt Johannesburg. Is there something else that comes close to that snow experience, but without the sketchy rock & brushy half?
  4. Anything alpine

    Are you available over the weekend, too?
  5. [TR] Dakobed Traverse - Clark Mtn to W Tenpeak 8/6/2011

    Great TR with inspiring pictures. I have to do less volcano slogging and get into traverses like this.
  6. Partner needed for a moderate grade 2 or 3

    c2c leaving on Fri evening and coming back anytime on Sat works great for me.
  7. Alpine this weekend

    I'd be interested in Sahale Arm, Shuksan/Fisher Chimneys, Baker/Boulder Glacier. And Eldorado, especially if we do the Dorado Needle
  8. Trip: Obersvation Rock - North Face Date: 10/16/2010 Trip Report: Matt, Alin and I went to have some fun on ice yesterday. There was finally decent ice on the NF. It took screws quite well. We had to use a picket a couple of times. We had a 70m rope for 3 people and ended up doing 5 half-rope pitches. A fun day with a spectacular sunset. We spent very little time on top of The Rock since we were running out of daylight. Almost 13 hours car-to-car. The last short pitch The NF that we climbed. Abseiling to the glacier to the left of the NF Putting on crampons for the last snow walk Moon, Rainer & Rock Gear Notes: 5 screws, 1 picket, 70m rope
  9. Trip: Shuksan - Sulphide Glacier variation Date: 8/21/2010 Trip Report: Seb France and I climbed Shuksan car-to-car on Saturday. We left the car at 1am and by the time we reached the camp at 5400ft the moon had already set. So we couldn't see the trail going towards the right at that point. We followed an obvious trail on the left ridge and were encouraged when we saw boot tracks. Unfortunately it was the wrong way and it cost us an extra 1000ft vertical and walking on annoying talus, wet moss and brushes. We finally met the Sulphie glacier at 6400ft. The glacier is in excellent condition. The snow was hard early in the morning, perfect for crampons. We were surprised to see only 5 people the whole day. We saw 2 climbers emerging from the Hell's Highway (we were already on descent, way below them). A lot later we met 3 more guys who were going up to camp. I really didn't expect solitude on this popular route. I learned that I need to be more careful when navigating an unfamilar route at night. Off route by sunrise On the Sulphide glacier Morning light Baker The steeper snow Seb approaching the summit Icy Peak and Nooksack Cirque Flowers on the pyramid 2 climbers (in the left corner, below the crevasse) coming from the Fisher Chimneys The weather moving in We should've gone to the right here Our actual route Gear Notes: Ice axe, crampons, 30m light glacier rope
  10. [TR] Mt. Stuart - Complete North Ridge 8/20/2010

    I thought this is what rock skis are for
  11. Where were the last 2 pictures taken from? And what's the snowfield in the last 3 pictures? I looked at the HTML hoping for some names in the picture URLs, but the last 3 say snowfield.jpg, lakes.jpg and lake.jpg. Thanks
  12. Three Fingers tomorrow (8/14/10)

    I would go on Sunday, if that's an option for you
  13. I'm looking for a partner for an easy snow/rock climb. Fisher Chimneys? Icy Peak? Even Sulphide on Shuksan. I'm open to other options. Overnight or single day push. Felix
  14. alpine climb this weekend. Shuksan? Icy?

    Salut Seb, domage que tu ne soit pas ici deja. Sauf toi personne ne ma repondu. On se voit la semaine prochaine? Felix
  15. Beta for Baker car to car

    CD c2c, mid July, left car at 12am, we were the 2nd team on the summit Easton c2c, early July, left car at 1030pm, we were the 1st team on the summit I like to leave early so there are as few climbers as possible ahead of me on the roman wall.
  16. [TR] Pika Glacier - 5/22/2010

    Hi Pat, may I join you next spring? Felix
  17. Has anybody been on Boulder or Park Glacier route recently? I'm thinking about heading there this weekend and would appreciate any info. Thanks!
  18. After this ride you must be in superb shape, not just good. You reminded me of this fellow Erden Eruc who cycled from Seattle to Alaska and then climbed Denali. Anyway, PM me if other climbing plans fall through and you want to do a car-to-car Rainier/DC.
  19. I'm going kayaking this long weekend, but am very interested in joining, should you postpone the trip to the next weekend.
  20. Rainier Avalanche

    This made it to the national news section. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100606/ap_on_re_us/us_rainier_avalanche I read a bunch of the comments from readers and and was surprised at home many of them were appalling. Darwin awards to the climbers, SAR is a waste of taxpayer money, etc. Very sad...
  21. [TR] Mt. Baker - Park Glacier 5/12/2010

    Dang, I'm so envious! You had quite a workout by the looks of the boot tracks. I hope to ski Baker (and Rainier) on day. This TR is quite an inspiration.
  22. Tieton? Frenchman Coulee? Anybody interested?
  23. Monday/Tuesday partner

    Hey lazyalpinist, you're over the private topic limit. I was trying to help Pat since i have net access on the phone
  24. sold? or still available?
  25. I'm also interested. Pm sent
