  1. Holy Criminy! Really outstanding.. KellyM tipped me off on this. That pic you linked to was from December 17, 2003... seems so long ago now...
  2. It looked like this late in the day on May 27, from a position above the Inspiration Glacier. I don't have anything more detailed than that and I didn't look at it from the south. Click the word "original" below the image to see the largest size image I've posted.
  3. Not much of a joke person eh? I guess humor is overrated. Several of the peak/feature names in that group (Baker/Black Buttes -- Lincoln, Colfax, Sherman, Seward, Assassin Spire) reflect historical significance as much as some perception as an "honor". Additionally, the first ascenders of a route are, by convention, entitled to name that route as they see fit. I see nothing wrong with that name (it's certainly within the context of the area), and suggest that if someone doesn't care for it, they should first consider that they missed their chance to be the first ones up the route & thus aren't in much of a position to be critical.
  4. What I didn't explain back then was that I was doing it all for Layton. Then he moved to Utah, likely because of the polygamy thing, and my spirit was broken. Once in a while, while soaring above the mists, I gaze over towards BS... but then the cold sweats begin, and I turn for home.
  5. ah yes... who could possibly forget the "each entree delivered to the table on one hour intervals" vibe.... but on the other hand, lots of extra time for beer....
  6. for what it's worth, the ridge just east of east McMillan Spire this afternoon - http://www.pbase.com/nolock/image/155881783 - ridges everywhere look like this or snowier, with cornices. I observed what looks like significant new snow at least in the Picket ranges - http://www.pbase.com/nolock/image/155881674 and http://www.pbase.com/nolock/image/155881675.
  7. seems like it's gone the way of the remodel of the climber's register at timberline... good work put in by so many folks, then the project disappears...
  8. Yes that is Jenny Abegg. Best to contact Steph, I'd suggest, either by email if you have it or through her website, which she monitors closely.
  9. Franklin was a really good guy.... very sad to see this.... RIP ...
  10. This was published yesterday and I found out about it today, an outstanding 18 min production about glaciers in the North Cascades:
  11. also you might consider using a freelance illustrator if you can find somebody who has those skills... cost could be a factor of course... but could save a ton of time by taking the learning curve out of the picture..
  12. I know Dave T has been using Adobe Illustrator for the pages in his book which is about to be published... it's geology related, not climbing.. but I don't have personal experience with using that program..
  13. Thxs, Max, honestly it was pure luck I happened to be by there on the 28th, as it was a completely unplanned, spur of the moment and very short flight. It was good detective work by Jackie Caplan-Auerbach from the geology department at WWU to find the event in the recent seismic record. By the way, the duration of the seismic signal has been measured at 71 seconds. It would have been awesome to see it happen, provided you were located at a safe vantage point..
