  2. Unrepeated routes in N Cascades (winter type)

    Also East Face Couloir of White Chuck. That was a fun one!
  3. Close call for Summitchaser

    Looks like he packed on some pounds since his Alpinist Cover. Sick FA, Bra!!
  4. Latok I North Ridge Rescue?

    I read that they left their rappel devices at the Bone Cairn.
  5. Latok I North Ridge Rescue?

    Parbat, not parpat.
  6. Latok I North Ridge Rescue?

    I remember a similar thing a bunch of years ago, on Nanga Parpat’s Rupal Face. I watched this one play out for the last week or so, on mountain.ru. I also figured he was a goner, bur still held out hope, until late last night. I got chills down my spine when they posted: “Saved!” Russian climbers are hard dudes, though, so I am not too surprised. They almost summited, again, this was their second attempt. His partner fell with most of their gear. F#ck that!
  7. Latok I North Ridge Rescue?

    Please get a copy of "Sheep Quest" to Polish Bob. I think his article about "Advanced Technique" is in the current issue.
  10. Waynes Greatest Hits WA Pass Edition

    But enough about Wayne... What do you think of Wayne?
  11. Advice for First Timer to N Cascades

    Todd "Kabob" fell descending the N Slope of N Twin Sister, solo, got impaled by his ice axe, rode his bike out, drove to the Welcome Store on SR542, and collapsed and almost bled to death on the floor in front of the horrified cashier. He didn't really know what had happened to himself (in shock and all). Point with that is that the N Slope descent can be steep and tricky under certain conditions. I think it is six miles in from the gate to the start of the West Rdige.

  14. Applauding risk acceptance beyond your own limits

    Super Heroes take risks. Normal people do not. That's what makes Super Heroes Super Heroes and not normal people. "Superman" is not called "Normal Man" for a reason: Normal Man is fucking boring. Everyone is agog at Honnold, for whatever reason, from "He's amazing!" to "He's going to kill himself!". Replace "Alex" with "Superman" and it all makes sense. "Superman! You shouldn't have taken such incredible risks to save Lois!" But he did, and he lived, and he's a hero. Until he dies and then he's dead and everyone can go on and on about how he was taking too many risks and that she wasn't worth it. He does love her, though... Perhaps an innate human tendency to have intense feelings towards risk takers. Not selected for, in the evolutionary sense.

    Turns out: "1%" is scary dangerous
