  1. Minnesota is pullin' for you guys. You know what to do. There are a bunch of us that wish we were there with you. Can't wait to read the TR!
  2. True, true, can't forget the Frosty! Unfortunatley, the frosty doesn't compress well, and we didn't have much room in the packs... that and it would have gone from a frosty to a soupy. We did have one after we got out- they work wonders on sun\wind burned lips!
  3. TR: On the Web Photos: Short version: http://www.imagestation.com/album/pictures.html?id=2104106490 Image station photos It is a bit long, but it could have been longer. Ejnoy. -Isaac
  4. In the parking lot at Ipsut Creek. April 4th. Was not there on the 10th when we got back. I thought I put it in my pack, but it some how was not there when I went for it. I should have posted sooner, but I spaced it. Now it is a shot in the dark, but the dark is much brighter (and louder) with a stove burning. Thanks -Isaac
  5. Great climb and ski! Sub 24 hours is totally respectable. I really wish we could have cut a few days out of our summit a month ago. The snow conditions would have been perfect then, with out the icy section. I kept thinking- if I only had my snowboard and the balls/skill to ride down... "I must have been a bit hypoxic, because at the last minute I stupidly changed my mind and decided to follow what looked like some steps leading left. Casey asked from below, "Does it go?"" Yes, it goes, but in two shorish pitches at about WI 3ish with some short 80-90 degree steps. I can't think of trying to do that section with skiis strapped to the pack. Again, great job!
  6. We are working up a TR and should have it done within the week, let me know any specific questions and I will try to answer them. This was an amazing route and it was beautiful to have it all to our selves. I always love watching the sun rise from above the clouds! The conditions were varied. Powder snow, alpine ice, styrofoam, wet snow, sunburn, moonlight, wind, no wind- we got it all! Most of the route was knee to mid thigh deep powder with a firm base. Occasionally it was waist deep. We took a direct finish on the cap and that was about 20 meters of WI 2-3 and then one about a 10-15 15 meter WI 4ish.
  7. Anyone want to know what the view looks like from the top in April?
  8. New link for Paradise Cam facing Rainier Paradise Web Cam
  9. as always, weight is a concern. So far, I have lost 13lbs for this trip. I could probably loose about 3-5 more, but I figure it will be gone by the time I get back We are each taking one luxury item. Mine is a mini-DV camcorder... I know, I know, it is heavy, etc... but that is why you call it a luxury item. As far as other stuff goes, I think we have a successful balance of necessities and light weight. I'll let you know how the trip goes when I return! Thanks for all your input.
  10. Faster- thanks for your bit of confidence~ I would not say that it is obsessing more that it is carrying extra gear. I though this board existed for this purpose- finding out route info. Wouldn't you want a recent photo of a route if you could get one? If I heard that it looked really icy, I would go accordingly, but since it looks like a bunch of snow- we will go accordingly.
  11. Thanks, I searched the TR index and got some great information. Sky- could you email me the full resolution photo? aliveandlivng at hotmail.com
  12. What, no video just kidding. Thanks for the additional photos. That gives me a better idea. I am trying to figure out how much ice we will be traveling over, but it sound like it will be primarily snow (which is what we thought and were planning on, I just wanted to make sure) John, those photos are some of the best I have seen on the net. Thanks for showing me that post. I tried searching back through the years looking for April-ish climbs, but there have not been many (that I found) Thanks again!
