  1. Holly shit ... when I was in the Cirque thirty years ago there might have been six vehicles in the parking lot.
  2. 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.
  3. [TR] North Sister - Complete East Buttress 12/23/2020

    As much as I love Hood for its easy access, there is so much adventure climbing to be had on the other volcanos.
  4. [TR] Mount Baring - Standard 12/05/2020

    Quit yer bitching youth. My last trip in the Casades the average age was over 60 with one damn near 70.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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/
  8. 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:
  9. Sea to Sky Gondola closed due to vandalism

  10. Jeff Park - Lionshead Fire

    Not sure if folks have been following the fires but Mt. Jefferson is getting hit hard by the Lionshead fire. https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/7049/ At this point Jeff Park (Whitewater Trailhead) is gone with the fire burning right up to timberline. The Pamela Lake area has not yet been burned. Much the of the Detroit Lake is gone as well.
  11. sold! Cans of old Coleman Fuel

    We once dumped 3/4 of a gallon into a rental car after a climbing trip. Another time we dumped about a 1/2 gallon into a friends old van when it ran out of gas. Burns hot.
  12. Bozeman, MT or Victor/Driggs, ID

    I have friends in both locations. They all like where they are living and all get out. One thing to consider for the very long term and the unexpected short term is access to health care. I would also be looking at taxes for both, income and property.
  13. Beta on Hood south side/old chute

    This time of year is known as bowling for climbers.
  14. [TR] Mt. Rainier - Tahoma Glacier 07/03/2020

    Don't you mean a couple of Stinkydog climbers ... besides that is what pickups are for :-)
  15. [TR] Mt. Rainier - Tahoma Glacier 07/03/2020

    Nice job on getting out. And yeah, when starting low taking two days to get to a high camp makes the climb much more enjoyable. Also we have found that for routes that start low and go long that it is worth carrying up and over, coming down the DC. It does require a shuttle but one can stash a car or hitch down - though this summer that might be problematic.
