  2. Hood SS Conditions?

    I'm thinking of taking my kid up the South Side this thursday night - I've never been on the route this late in the season. Anybody been up there recently? I'm curious on snow cover, rockfall, etc. - many thanks!
  3. Hood SS Conditions?

    All good on the SS as of last night - straight forward with the exception of the catwalk being largely melted out and the "One O'Clock Coulior" being the chossy exit of choice to avoid the sketch of the catwalk. No wind and bluebird - 12 year old kid tore it up, great outing!

  5. Trip: Liberty Bell - Fire in the Sky - Date: 8/13/2012 Trip Report: The last few times we've been on top of Liberty Bell we couldn't help but notice that there were sandy benches at the true summit that would be a cool place to bivy and watch the sun go down. So it was that on the night the Perseid Meteor shower peaked Dave and I found ourselves heading up the approach trail with packs stuffed with overnight gear, food for several weeks and a fine selection of whisky. We arrived on top just after the sun went down, enjoyed a beautiful sunset and a great meal. With the lack of light pollution and the elevation the stars were intense. We began seeing the Perseids around 10p coming out of the northeast. Amazing variety of colors, with some leaving long tracer lines.
  6. enchantments camping permits?

    Last time I "checked" it was $125 per violator.
  7. lightest way to purify water?

    Try a Steripen - lighter/smaller than a filter and good to go in 60 seconds.

  11. FS: BD Firstlight, I Tent, Eldorado Vestibule

    I have an Eldo from about 5 years ago - don't know what year your vestibule is or if it matters (design probably didn't change). I'm interested - I'm in Seattle.
  12. [TR] Mt. Baker - North Ridge 7/5/2010

    Great report and pics! Did you camp at the 6,000' camps or higher? What about gaining the base of the ridge - did you go climbers left around the ridge and up, or come in from climbers right and directly up? Thanks.
  13. [TR] Shuksan - sulphide + pyramid 1/22/2010

    Looks like a great trip - could you drive to the trailhead and were you able to skin from the lot? Thanks
  14. I'm an ex-Juneauite now living in Seattle and am looking for a partner for a climb of the Main Tower/Mendenhall Towers via the West Ridge. I will be up in Juneau this summer visiting family 7/22-7/28 and would be looking to climb for 3-4 days immediately before or after these dates. Due to time constraints it would have to be a heli approach. Let me know if you're interested or want to know about the route. You can contact me at fieldsmr@gmail.com Thanks, Mike
  15. BCA Beacon, Shovel, Probe

    PM sent on the Arcteryx pants.
  16. This is a pair of Petzl Aztars (both with hammers) in great condition. Use a few times, picks are great, leashes are like new. Pics of the tools are here: http://picasaweb.google.com/fieldsmr/AztarTools# Shoot me an e-mail if interested: fieldsmr@gmail.com
  17. Fall, and outlook to climbing

    Glad you're OK Bala - thought provoking!
  18. If you got your rope stuck on the L-Bell descent, give me a PM and ID and I'll get it to you.
  19. Climbed WR on sat - road gated at Eldo (about mile 20) - easy road walk after that. Last bit of trail before Boston Basin has snow. Basin is all snow. On Saturday the Couliour was in, although melting fast. Ridge is dry. The last creek crossing on the way out can be impassible if it's a hot day and you reach it in the afternoon.

    Interested - where are you located? Like to try it on. fieldsmr @ gmail.com
  21. Juneau Ski Tour Info

    Hey, I'll be in Juneau 7/10-14 and am looking for a partner to climb the Main Tower of the Mendenhall Towers - interested? I'm from Juneau and have some ideas on tours, but your best bet is to call The Foggy Mountain Shop in town and they'll set you up. Mike fieldsmr at gmail.com
  22. Trip: Torment/Forbidden Traverse - Date: 9/7/2007 Trip Report: Greg and I climbed the Torment/Forbidden Traverse last week. Snow on the second day made the two v. three day decision for us and we bivied at the Forbidden West Ridge notch on night two. Only beta to add: The first rap after Torment goes overhung and then lands you in a 20' deep moat that requires crampons/tools to get out of. The ice traverse was mostly alpine ice, with a short stretch of water ice that took screws. Good access to snow for water at several points along the route. Great route! Gear Notes: Small rock rack, 2 screws, axe, tool and crampons Approach Notes: Taboo Glacier is straightforward
  23. Trip: Stuart - NR - Date: 8/30/2007 Trip Report: Brian and I climbed the upper NR of Stuart over two days at the end of August - perfect weather. Rap below Gendarme is dry. Gear Notes: Small rack - didn't need crampons or axe when we crossed the glacier in the afternoon.
  24. Looking for a Gri-Gri, stuff to trade

    I've got a never-used Gri - whatcha got?
