  1. Alpine Climbing Partners

    FYI Glacier Creek Road to N. Side of Baker is wiped out right now. 4mi hike to TH, road is clear of snow to there. Enjoy!
  2. Anyone willing to share their systems for Rope Solo and Aid Soloing? Specifically back-up knots and protocol, and rope management systems for multi-pitch climbs. Any info, really.... Silent Partner users able to contribute would be greatly appreciated. Cheers!
  3. Accident/Death on Triple Couloir

    Sorry, but I gotta call BS on this one, IMHO. I would classify it as "No Fucking Way" from the cruxes in the top two couloirs, especially so in what I would consider "ideal" conditions for a solo.
  4. Gear For Sale! Located in Bellingham, everything listed is clean, bright, and alright! SCARPA Freney XT Boots (43M) Great boot for Ice/Mixed/Alpine.

  5. Climber killed, others injured at Thumb Rock

    Those guns aren't loaded, so I guess it's safe. Climb on!!
  6. Last Ascents in the Cascades

    Drew: Where was your first picture taken? It looks like a road or tracks down near the shoreline... Follow Up Question: In your experience, how much of the recent increase (seemingly) in mass wasting do you feel can be directly attributed to climate change?
  7. Last Ascents in the Cascades

    Dodged a bullet on that one...on a geologic time scale. We would have been obliterated.
  8. Concerning snow pack

    ZOIKS!!!!
  9. Unrepeated routes in N Cascades (winter type)

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

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

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

    Parbat, not parpat.
  13. 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!
  14. Latok I North Ridge Rescue?
