  1. Nice climb guys. I am glad to hear that you went back in and finished the route. It was fun hanging out at 5400' camp last week chatting on your way out. Colin... see you in AK next month.
  2. My thoughts to her family and friends in their time of loss.
  3. pm bigbro... he needs to get out climbing more often. You might have to drag him away from his studies... but it's ok. He needs some time away from the books.
  4. A day of climbing... priceless (0 kN)
  5. boy, all that hiking sure sounds like fun. makes me want to go climbing.
  6. It was great to meet you John! The weather was too good to pass up a day off from work. Nice climb.
  7. Don't listen to this guy... I hear he doesn't even climb. He is an accountant... that has a spray problem. I think he also posts on ratemypoop.com :-)
  8. Don't go into Seattle. Go climb at Vertical World Redmond! Quality bouldering, many new routes for TRing and leading. Clean gym, great staff!!!
  9. Nope. Not really... other than your minimal improvement in fitness from the hiking/climbing workouts. But, the acclimatization that you are hoping for (ie: increased # of red blood cells, improved oxygenation, etc...) takes longer to happen than it sounds like you will be in CO.
  10. Roll up Solar Panel... talk about trades... people with battery eating digital cameras will trade just anything to borrow a few hours of charging time.
  11. sorry todd... after looking at all the details and spending time in both bags... had to go with the Marmot Col EQ. The FF hood is very small and even when cinched, just doesn't cut it. I like to bury my eyes in my hood to block out the midnight sun in AK; Marmot has a super deep hood. The vertical midsection baffles are nice too.
  12. Was just up there 2 days ago. Avy danger was "relatively" low. Most of the upper layers had consolidated well during the recent rain and warm weather. I used snowshoes on the upper slopes which made the going pretty easy. Lower trail portions (in the trees) were fine without snowshoes and made for easy travel.
  13. Yeah Scott... life is rough. I'll put up some pics if anyone can go. Usually I post these and end up going hiking cause no one can ever get out of their jobs.
