  1. Advice for First Timer to N Cascades

    If you head up to WA Pass, head a little further east and check out Flyboys on Goat Wall in Mazama, 18-pitch 5.9 sport route, well protected.
  2. Fly Boys Route -Goat Wall - Mazama

    I climbed this in September last year, took us about 6-7 hours to climb and we did the walk off the top (shuttled a car up in the morning). It's a thoroughly enjoyable climb and one I wouldn't mind repeating this spring!
  3. Awesome job boys, looks like fun times haha!
  4. FS 2060 Clear Ck rd Good, Squire Ck Rd, Not So

    I was out there two weekends ago and there were trees down over the road to exfo, shortly after the bridge, planning to go back out this coming weekend with a chainsaw.
  5. Mens Black Diamond Helio Shell

    I accidentally ordered a large from our pro deal site and have subsequently ordered a medium but there is a no return policy, so I'm selling the large for $250 (what I paid for it with shipping). Never been worn. I live in Everett but would consider meeting or mailing. Let me know if you're interested. Cheers!
  6. Darrington access pass?

  7. Nice one! I'll have to get out there soon!
  8. Thanks guys for all the work on an awesome route! We were one of 3 parties that summited yesterday (10/4). Given the shorter days we reached the summit just before sunset and had fun rapping down with headlamps!
  9. [TR] Mount Rainier - Liberty Ridge 6/9/2015

    Strong work! That last picture doesn't look like it was taken from Paradise
  10. Trip: Darrington - 3 O'Clock Rock - Silent Running Date: 1/25/2015 Trip Report: Hard to believe this route is in in January! Road is in good shape to trailhead. There are 3 large downed trees currently blocking the trail. No snow above the route. Also, no snow on exfo dome currently. The route was wet in places but climbable. Great day out! Gear Notes: 10 draws and gear to 2" Approach Notes: Pretty good shape for January
  11. Some friends and I climbed this route this past weekend...great position, stunning views, and fun climbing abound! Just remember to bring lots of beer and whiskey! Random pics from the climb...
  12. Been up to Boston Basin lately?

    Stream crossing isn't bad, crampons were nice to have...here's a couple pics of the area/route on approach to Torment.
  13. Darrington Dark Rhythm

    nice! that's a great route!
  14. Clear Creek 2060

    all clear
  15. Three O'Clock Rockfall

    just looking back at pics I have of that area before the rockfall...looks like a little exfoliation going on. total soul should be fine, as most of the rockfall would have ended up in the gully separating it from silent running.
  16. Three O'Clock Rockfall

    damn, a friend and I climbed silent running on May 31 and this hadn't happened yet...would not have wanted to be on route for that!
  17. [TR] Mt. Rainier - Ingraham Direct 1/26/2014

    Yeah, that was a fantastic trip man! Other than getting lost coming down from Camp Muir Fuckin' group leader...
  18. play it extra safe of the snow, recent avi death

    a friend and I climbed Lewis Peak on Sunday, the day after the accident. Here's pics of the summit ridge and summit cornice...
  19. Chris Greyell

    Chris was truly an inspiration and one of the nicest guys you could ever rope up with, you'll be missed friend...
  20. [TR] Squire Creek Wall - Skeena26 8/3/2013

    Looks awesome! I plan on hitting this one this season as well!
  21. Well done guys, looks like an awesome adventure!
  22. Found: E38 Guidebook

    Got home from E38 last night and found an extra guidebook in my pack, one of us must have picked it up by accident. Has a word written on inside cover in pencil. Let me know if its yours and I'll get it back to you.
  23. Darrington Sunday?

    Hey Matt, I could be out at three o clock around noon if you want to climb. Bryan
