  1. Fossil Rock,other walls Weyerhaeuser Vail area

    This totally sucks,I checked on the permits 2 weeks ago and they were already sold out. At least it's from Aug. 1 to the end of the year only- I note that bear and elk hunting season opens August 1st, I usually avoid the area from then on anyway, once it fills up with drunk people carrying guns. Still sucks.
  2. Leavenworth camping

    Two other sites in the whole campground were in use, it was extremely luxurious. We brought our own water and used the bathrooms at der safeway. The trashcans were unlocked and the icicle remains pristine.Highlight of the trip was a sunny day climb of Catapult and Canary.

    Checking with the FS you are right, thanks for the idea.
  4. Leavenworth camping

    A couple of us are heading to L-worth this week. Usually we camp at 8-mile, which is still closed. Any ideas from those with knowledge of the area on where to camp? Much appreciated!

    We got 6 pitches in today before it got dark- raindrops started falling as I drove home. What a great quarry season, new folks, 3 new redpoints, and plenty to work on for next year! Thanks Off!
  6. Mt. Stone conditions

    LOL, yes we had some route finding issues. First we detoured to St. Peter's Gate thinking it might be the way. Then for some reason I believed a gully just after you turn the corner towards the ridge was the "short scramble" and headed up it. I soon found I was unable to reverse a couple of moves and scared the crap out of myself free soloing some 5.6 or.7 in hiking boots pulling on olympics rock. I was so glad to live, but I ended up on the little snow field below the ridge. I though it was a first ascent, but it sounds like apparently not! I did the same thing on Mt. Washington, I'm not sure whats wrong with me!

  8. Mt. Stone conditions

    Thank You for asking! Yes, Zack and I finally summitted (third try) and it was great. To answer my own questions, the road was perfect, we parked at the bottom of the Putvin Trail. Snow was visible up high, so we took ice axe and crampons. The axes were handy for glissading down the remaining snowfields in the bowl below the summit, but were not needed for ascending. The crampons were not used, but enjoyed the trip. I tried to upload some photos, but after an hour of screwing around I have given up. The wildflowers were amazing, great time to be up there!
