  1. La Vie Au Bout Des Doigts

    I can vaguely remember that short. Gotta remember to blow des doigts after a dip in the chalk.
  2. Multiple forum posts, probably should just following it here: https://www.mountainproject.com/forum/topic/121222732/accident-report-and-analysis-after-a-30ft-trad-fall-including-a-broken-wire-and-
  3. [TR] Mt Hood - Cathedral Ramp - FA 04/17/2021

    When writing a description one wants concise details that makes it easy for others to find all of the information needed. Which of those three routes would one who is unfamiliar wth the area search for to learn about the finish??? The right side gully is primary route, the others including this one are variations. If there is something relevant about the other routes, such as the Ramp and Pencil joining up then list them as you did.
  4. [TR] Mt Hood - Cathedral Ramp - FA 04/17/2021

    Looks a bit popular and crowded ... :-) Suggestion on the MP description: Current : From the end of P4, continue up ~500 vertical feet of snow, ice, and easy mixed to the summit. This portion of the route is shared with Right Gully, Ravine, and The Pencil. Suggested: From the end of P4 continue up remaining ~500 vertical feet of the Right Gully Route to the summit. That is list the primary route, the fact that other "variations" join in are moot.

    Nice, I have always thought there was good climbing on the more obscure faces on the Sisters.
  6. Did you summit?

    Good article ... basically it comes down to being honest if you are going to boast. With the need to claim one's frame (aka mouth masturbation) the boasting becomes bloated. The first time I "summited" on Rainier, we reached the summit crater but not Columbia Crest. When we were checking out with the rangers they asked if we summited. We said no and that we had only reached the summit crater. The ranger just laughed and said that was where most people stopped and that we had summited. We felt slightly better about our ascent. The next time I "summited" on Rainier I was damn well going make sure I really reached the summit and walked around whole summit crater. Since then there has been only one ascent on Rainier where we finished the route but did not reach one of the three high points.
  7. Holly shit ... when I was in the Cirque thirty years ago there might have been six vehicles in the parking lot.
  8. Scottish Ice

    What I want to know is how many different tools he had stashed in his pack. And but of course time to stop at the pub on the way home.

    As much as I love Hood for its easy access, there is so much adventure climbing to be had on the other volcanos.

    Quit yer bitching youth. My last trip in the Casades the average age was over 60 with one damn near 70.
  11. Wy'East Gear and Experience Requirements: Should I climb it?

    Wy'East route is a good route but as said the the rocky area might be more than you want. An alternative is the Mazama (aka West Crater Rim) route. Not really off the beaten path but away from the typical south side clown show. It can have some any danger. If you were going with some more experienced climbers then the Wy'East would be worth considering. Also study the descent off Hood for white out conditions.
  12. Bend climber dies on the north side of Mt. Hood

    Having been on Sunshine in October and having caught a fall on ice I can say the same about Copper's Spur in October. The top of the spur was ice. Though solo with a single axe, I was competent enough to climb through it. I will admit that I descended the S. Side and walked around via the Newton Clark back to Cloud Cap cause gong down Cooper's Spur was not going to happen. It was a lovely walk around - so lovely I did again after doing the N. Face gulley.
  13. Sounds like a fall and tumble into a crevasse: https://ktvz.com/news/bend/2020/10/29/air-and-ground-search-underway-for-missing-bend-climber-on-mount-hood/
  14. question Bibler Big Wall I-Tent - value?

    Your best bet is to just put it up for sale on on CC and MP. Could also list on fleabay. Here is a prototype from 13 years ago on CC:
