  7. Trip: Chair Peak - North Face Date: Feb 12 2012 Trip Report: Jeremy [La Mano] and I teamed up via the CC partners forum for our first climb together. Approach: From Alpental, snowshoes were handy on the latter part of the trail to Source lake and beyond. Trooper Jeremy, breaking trail Gear Notes: Single 70 m rope, 3 pickets, 5 screws (stubby, 2x10, 2x13), small-medium wires, pegs (2xKB, 1xLA, 2xsmall angles), and slings (5x4', 6x8', 3 screamers). Route: 3 pitches with a bit of simul-climbing on P2 & P3 worked well with a single 70 m. Jeremy above the steep section of P1 P1 - A small snow-bridge across the bergschrund at the base allowed access to an unconsolidated snow cone. After a little uphill swimming there was a section of steep and decent ice followed by steep snow. Good rock gear on RH side and OK screws. Belay on picket and a couple of screws. Jeremy setting off on P2 P2 - Unconsolidated snow and OK ice led up and right to belay in the trees. P3 - More unconsolidated snow, OK ice, good tree slings and rock gear. We turned the cornice on the RH side. After a short climb up and right we were on the summit enjoying good views through patchy cloud cover. Obligatory Summit Photo Descent: Head towards NE buttress, over a small rise, down and (skiers) right into a gully. Down climb to fixed gear on a head-wall (skiers left). We joined ropes with another team for the rap back to the basin below, and our stashed snowshoes. A shorter rap, or down climbing would be fine. The soft snow made for a fun descent back to Source lake and we were soon back at the car. Sadly we both forgot to bring post climb beers; nonetheless a jolly good day out with a new friend, and I look forward to more.
  8. New to PNW from Utah looking to get out

    You got me with the promise of malty beverages. I'm based in Burien and would love to share some alpine adventures, especially as I have time on my hands at the moment. I have not climbed as much as I would have liked over the last 2-3 years - largely due to work pressure, which is no longer an issue. I'm an OK rock climber and a much better ice climber, a Brit who started rock climbing in '86 and ice climbing in Scotland the same year (wow, that long ago). I lived in the US from 95'-'07 (04-07 in Seattle) before heading back to the UK and then returning to Seattle late last year. I have enough gear for an expedition and then some, although I may not always have access to the car my wife and I share. Happy to meet and talk about climbing over beer, however, climbing then beer would be better. For starters, a fun sounding (relatively easy?) alpine adventure I have wanted to get on for a while is the Tooth in Snoqualmie (there is a trip report in alpine lakes region from a couple of days ago). Alternatively there are a couple of fun sounding routes on Chair peak (North face or NE ridge). We may have missed the best of the weather this week, but the forecast is still not shocking (http://www.wrh.noaa.gov/total_forecast/getprod.php?prod=XXXAFDSEW&wfo=SEW) and avalanche conditions are mostly 'green'(http://www.nwac.us/).

    Hey Sobo. Yes, a fine day on the summit of Ben Nevis, back in the day with 45-50 cm straight ice tools. Probably harder with the bent shafts and extra grips on modern tools and I'm very out of practice...
