  1. So I waffled on posting this on spray, but whothe f*8*Ck has rapped on Jill's Thrill with a 70m and has ever suggested it will reach the second anchor? I came up 4 feet short weighted, and 5-6 ft with unweighted rope.
  2. There is a thread on Facebook ClimbPDX group about the top out of SE corner and putting in a bolt anchor. But don't all requests go through WCC to WA State Parks? https://www.facebook.com/groups/ClimbPDX/permalink/709746279476533/ https://www.oregonclimbers.org/
  3. sounds good. Can we meet in the Planet Granite gym and talk about summer?
  4. I heard there is a Opsrey nest on top of Rooster Rock
  5. Just trying to climb this summer. lead trad up to 5.10. Will do alpine rock. Snow, not so much.
  6. I was up there a month ago. A 140 ft 5.6 had my attention all the way. All smears, one or two divots or edges for hands, and lot's of sand, lichen, and moss to skirt around.
  7. I find my original plans falling apart and so am looking to go to Leavenworth for the long weekend. Live in Portland. Trad up to 5.10.
  8. The most recent book I know is Squamish Select(2012 edition) by Marc Bourdon. Kevin McLane book is out of print, but you can sometimes get it for $70 used. I was just up there last weekend(7/21/17), rainy. We went for Skywalker on Sunday at 8 am and there were 4 parties ahead of us already, we had a 2 hour wait to climb it. But it would have been too much effort to drive and climb another route.
  9. Seems things always change. My climb partner now has a boyfriend so I'm looking for an outdoor climb partner, preferably Portland area. Lead up to 10a trad. Looking to do some alpine as well as cragging. Not a Mountain snow type of person. Tend to be cautious and safe.
  10. Things have changed. original climbers cannot make it. Since I already paid for the campsite, still want to go. Have a campsite reserved at Windy Creek, 4 open spots. Climbing at Tieton. Looking for a climb partner who can follow 5.9 crack.
  11. depending on weather/ avy conditions. Skin up and ski down. I use AT. I would figure Avy gear is necessary. the mountain is supposed to get 5 inches Friday night at 6000 ft.
  12. So I found out from an old friend that "Valhalla" has been known for some time. Maybe they didn't explore the whole thing, but he has pictures of his experience, he writes: "The Jonathan Korn search, 7/31/1992. We spent the night down there in an unplanned bivouac. I got all on film."
