  1. Washington Pass Conditions

    No car yet, but I am learning how to drive...ha!..if it were only as easy as climbing. I have the 17th thru the end of the month off and am trying to get something big in. We'll see. Any other suggestions?
  2. Washington Pass Conditions

    Hola: I am curious what the conditions for this area are, if anyone has been out there lately, trail conditions, snow coverage on formations...water drainage, will it be fun to climb there at this time of year, can I pull the crux on X route, you know everything that one needs to make a determination for a road trip.?. Thanks for your time.

    Bill: I've entered the hotline into my phone...you know so when I'm doggin a route and I see bottles flyin I can just tap my ear piece and shaazzam, instant police action without confrontation. I hope the bottle breaking does die off so the area can be cleaned up and stay clean, these are wishful thoughts, people will always party there...we just need them to party without the needles, condoms, car parts, trash, bottles and cans (wait...can you actually party without those things?.. i tried once without the car parts and there was something missing). Yes, I did bail out on plans for Beacon to go climbing at the Butte, but I did have a fabulous time and now that i've climbed my second crack climb in my entire life, I feel sufficently prepared for anything beacon can throw at me...except anything above 5.8...oh, is there anything...?ha! I am trying to get out there in the near future, if you have a lead, let me know. As for my ass hitch-hiking; as a transplant eastcoaster I still fear three things: open spaces without trash and noise, people who say hi to me and don't know me, being picked up off of the side of the road with 20lbs of climbing gear in my pack and not a clue as to where I'm going. I did read On The Road in highschool, but I was high, so I can't remember a damn thing...and I am not sure it would help anyways, in our post 9-11 world. Maybe some day though...maybe... Peace. Oh yeah; who wants to climb tomorrow? The BUTTe or elsewhere.

    Hey knotty and mav, are you two headed out this afternoon? If so i'd like to tag along, my partner (i mean gri-gri) is a little sick of my company and wanting me to find new friends.

    Ok, who is up for some climbing tomorrow. Weather looks nice. Broughtons? The Butte? Anywhere? Anyone? Bueller?

    Aradia: Are you able to head up earlier in the afternoon, like 2ish. Drop a line or call. Glad you are feeling better.
  12. PDX to Smith for Fri/Sat

    Hello: I am looking for a partner and ride to Smith for climbing this Friday and Saturday(7/16-17). I can take the bus, but would rather not. I can leave early Thurday afternoon, but need to be home for work Sunday morning. I am a competant sport leader (up to .10-) and trad to .8s (only have half rack though), can follow a bit harder. Looking for a relaxed and motivated climber for some good times. Have $ for gas and stories to tell and solid belay. Thanks for looking.

    A few thoughts on 'Rusky bottle tossing': I like the idea of a sign indicating usage of trails below the cliffs. Maybe the letter should come from the Access fund or Mazamas and be linked to proposed sign or future action by the groups to better climber/hiker/dirt bike jumper safety. Are we sure that you can drink alcohol in a park? If all else fails, we can always adopt the 'eye for an eye' roadmap for peace in the Middle East, and 'rain bottles and trash down from the heavens' on the bible college and its attendees. plan b or m depending...

    I think that is doable; let me confirm my ability to get there and get back to you. Thanks.
