  1. Climbing this spring (and maybe summer)

    My fence will be a Colt .308
  2. [TR] Mt. Hood - Yocum Ridge Solo 03/21/2020

    I would love to rope up with Landon ... yeah he is young but reading his posts there is some good stuff there that this well aged alpinist sees. Besides being young, he can carry the rope and the rack. Though he does seem a bit pre-occupied with Mt. Hood, I am sure that will change :-).
  3. [TR] Mt. Hood - Yocum Ridge Solo 03/21/2020

    Did ya try the "Find my iPhone?" app??? Could of had the summit and your phone too!! Nice work :-).
  4. An assload of money

    Ya gotta watch the units carefully. Not a shit load of money but a shit ton of money. And as DPS noted are you gonna use metric or imperial tons?
  5. [TR] Mt Hood - Sunshine from Timberline 03/19/2020

    Nice, gotta love early morning sunshine on Sunshine. I have traversed around a couple of times but after doing a route and having a vehicle at Cloud Cap. I have always found it to be enjoyable.
  6. [TR] Sloan Peak - Superalpine 03/15/2020

    Okay the third time will be the charm. Get Kyle when he is healed and git the damn thing done to the top!!

  8. [TR] Mt Hood - Yocum Ridge 03/08/2020

    Nice on the ice
  9. Nice attempt, get better and get back on it.
  10. Easy way for you to win 2 free Ice Screws

    Who even has a FaceButt account anymore (or even had one to begin with?).
  11. Letter from PMR President about CCSO

    It does not matter what the cost is to the county (or the other points which are indisputable), it is what is being required for liability to the county. Clackamas County is one of the few remaining counties in the state that didn’t require all SAR volunteers to go through the sheriff’s office. Like it or not, this change is/will be the norm.
  12. Paying Tribute to Helmy Beckey

    So few of the old guard are left ... if you ever get the chance to spend sometime with them do so. I have great stories from Fred, Dee, and many others.
  13. Dee Molenaar has passed at 101

    I visited Dee a few times over the years. Great fun. When he found out we had done Curtis Ridge he asked us to sign his copy of Challenge of Rainier. I thought that was an honor. Some trivia, when Dee came home from K2 his wife decided that she did not want to be married to a climber. Dee's second wife was much more understanding. She was a peach.
  14. [TR] North Sister - E Buttress 12/28/2019

    Nice ... gotta love early winter and low snow 4x4 approaches.
  15. With all that extra time ya should have done a lap on Sandy Glacier Headwall. I mean after all it is really a face in to itself. But then you would have had to call yer mom around midnight. She might have complained but you had an easy out - better than calling at midnight to pick you up from Timberline than the pokey. That said nice job. I am guess around 11k vertical for the day which is a good day's outing. Now get back to those books.
