  1. Good write up Mr. Blue and a solo effort as well. We backed off trying to get across perfect impasse and descended a long way down to get across the gully on one of our trips to Challenger.
  2. Sheesh. Alex, you had all day and that's all you got accomplished? I'm happy to do something easy like Beckey Route or SEWS south arete and get back to car before dark.
  3. Yes, thanks AAI. That is good news. They are very generous here in the Bellingham area with fund raising-donations for mountain related activities, such as Bellingham Mountain Rescue, NWAC, and others. The big guiding companies often get picked on in the forums but these guys really seem like good neighbors.
  4. Just watched this at theater. It was done very well and climbing scenes are awesome. Also the RunOut Podcast had a good interview with the filmmaker. Marc was so young...
  5. Ok, I voted for you guys cause I like you but a new Land Rover? Really? Keep the old bus running.
  6. Sheesh oly, what did they put in your coffee this morning?
  7. Way to go. Sad to see Shasta so barren in April.
  8. Hey quit talking smack about Art Bell. He was fun to listen to working the night shift.
  9. Hey DanO, I'm not interested in getting the jab either, but your rants and links all belong in the trash bin. Anyway, thanks for posting something to get the natives riled up.
  10. Climbed it last July and feel it is has a bit less hazard than CD route as far as that goes. Route finding shouldn't be an issue. If bringing first timers for sure spend some time in camp with some ice axe/rope work etc. cause the crevasses will make their eyes pop. You walk right next to the edge of the crater near the top so take a few minutes and climb down in.
  11. This is very interesting to learn but not surprising given government bureaucracy/ lawyers and liability issues/ law enforcement hierarchy/ etc. and the very high costs involved when a major rescue is needed. Local SAR can never be replaced.
  12. Reminds me of the 1977 Yosemite story about plane going down in a lake with bales of pot and climbers hiking up to the crash site.
