  1. [TR] Mt. Whitney- East Face 9/25/2006

    Hmmm... What happened to McKinley? Is Alaska no longer in North America? Continental vs. Contiguous - what's the difference?
  2. Is there any danger in using a double/half rope as a single for glacier travel? I saw a team of 3 last weekend using what looked like about an 8mm cord for their glacier rope.
  3. Try Marmot Mountain Works in Bellevue or Pro Mountain Sports in Seattle. I have had good luck with both in the past.
  4. Validate My Trip Plan?

    The ridicule is fine and I didn't really expect anyone to validate the bearings. I am just trying to learn how to do it and thought a simple route would be a good place to start. Thanks for all of your "input"...

  6. Alpine Cordelette Length

    Damn... the lame shop guy cut me a piece that is 18 feet, five and 7/8 inches... will it still work? Anyway, thanks to all of you for responding!
  7. Alpine Cordelette Length

    What's a good length for a cordelette in an alpine rack?
  8. Hey I am looking for a partner for the weekend of July 22 for Mt Baker or another Alpine route we can do in two days. Send me a note if you are interested.
