  4. [TR] Mt. Rainier - double barrel Emmons ski 8/19/2009

    Dan You are a true cascade hard Manimal. Next time I watch your totally awesome and riveting video I'm going to put my skis on in the living room and pretend it's me. "I skied with a smile down to about 10500 where the first sections of exposed glacial ice were, packed the skis and headed up for another lap." Like I said...
  5. [TR] Observation Rock - North slope 9/7/2008

    I believe it is called "Cat Eye" lake.
  6. Ptarmigan Traverse - exit via Agnes Creek??

    The way I spoke about puts you on the ridge above Spruce Creek and you are hiking in beautiful park lands on the ridge--very similar to the Sahale Arm--strolling. Unfortunately and admittedly, you are going south for many extra miles as opposed to the direct eastern approach via Spruce Creek.
  7. Ptarmigan Traverse - exit via Agnes Creek??

    As I recall we exited the Ptarmigan traverse by going to canyon lake via Ross Pass, totem pass, down the canyon lake trail to the miners ridge trail, (joining it just east of Image Lake) and hitting the Agnes Creek Trail at Suiattle Pass. We chose to exit via Holden Village. The section from Dome to Suiattle Pass was really spectacular Hope this helps.

    Army helicopter lifts injured climber off Mount Rainier STACEY MULICK; The News Tribune Published: July 2nd, 2008 07:58 AM | Updated: July 2nd, 2008 11:14 AM An Army Reserve helicopter crew and park rangers helped rescue an injured climber off Mount Rainier this morning. The climber was taken to Madigan Army Medical Center shortly after 7 a.m. for treatment of possible internal injuries, the U.S. Army Reserve reported. The man was injured Tuesday when he fell into a crevasse on the east side of the mountain, the Army reported. He was part of a five-member climbing party. A physician also was in the climbing party. The Army got a call about 9 p.m. Tuesday requesting a helicopter rescue at the first opportunity this morning. The climber was lifted off the mountain using a helicopter hoist. In addition to the helicopter crew, rangers from the National Park Service and a Central Pierce Fire & Rescue paramedic participated in the rescue. The condition of the climber was not known this morning. To see photos of the rescue, go to the Lights & Sirens blog.rescue pictures
  10. tips for alpine newbies

    Climb if you will, but remember that courage and strength are nought without prudence, and that a momentary negligence may destroy the happiness of a lifetime. Do nothing in haste; look well to each step; and from the beginning think what may be the end (Whymper, 1871)
  11. Colchuck Conditions

    I have a permit for next wednesday to camp at the lake and will climb it on thursday, weather permitting. Previous post indicated that crampons were needed in the early morning...
  12. Found: Cam on Outer Space 5-31

    Jim Yoder told me that he built his rack by soloing Outer Space on Monday mornings when he was lived in Leavenworth and seldom left without at least one left piece.
  13. Your Climbing Heroes

    Not to denigrate the great climbers mentioned, but the climber I most admire is Fred Beckey. Not only is he an outstanding mountaineer, he is also a scholar, writer, and explorer who has dedicated his entire life to his pursuit. He is a seriously interesting personality.
  14. Jim Yoder just informed me that the 3rd ed of the Frenchman Coulee Guidebook will be available on Thursday and can be picked up at Marmot, Feathered Friends,Backpackers Supply and other fine locations.
