  1. Climbed this last week. No problem finding the start (lines up with the arete). Really fun climbing and amazing position. Gratitude and respect to GZ and crew for putting this up.
  2. Thanks. Kind of what I figured. I'll plug that into the decision matrix. Could wait and do it next year (already put if off for 40 or so)
  3. Thanks for a great TR. Thinking about doing this at the end of the month. What are the chances that the snow patch near your bivy is still there?
  4. It must have been you we met at the WR ranger station after abandoning our plan to climb Liberty Ridge based on the "field report". Your pics make me feel pretty good about that decision. I can sympathise about your situation, having baled off of Curtis three times. It really looks "out" this year. Glad you got a concilation climb on the Emmons. We drove around to Paradise and climbed the Kautz. It was in good shape and pure type 1 fun. Image is from 6/29/22
  5. Had a great multi-day trip to the Enchantments in late September 2015. Very few folks around other than us crazy hippies. Still have to get my wife up there though.
  6. I was thinking "how absolutely sublime" until the last bit about the crowds as you hiked out. Way to dodge the masses when it counted.
  7. Hey, lets face it, rappelling is dangerous and slow.
  8. Thanks for the stunning pics to remind me of one of the most beautiful places I have been in the Cascades (or anywhere else). Got to get back there. I don't live by the rule "If you wouldn't kill it, you shouldn't eat it." but I do find the notion of killing a warm-blooded beast in that environment disturbing.
  9. I climbed Ptarmigan Ridge about 10 years ago and two things "diminished" the experience for me: I forgot my sleeping bag (and my pad blew off the ridge and floated down to the Carbon from our high camp) and that slog from the top of the route to Liberty Cap was brutal. Maybe I should go back and try again. Cool that the rock step was actually ice. My partner and I bailed off of Curtis ridge (third time now) the week before you were up there. The rock bands on that route were holding neither snow nor ice and the evidence of rockfall on the snowfields between was sobering. I'm sure Curtis would be an amazing climb if you got the conditions right, but I'm not sure if I've got another attempt in me. Liberty remains my go-to ridge on Rainier, but Sunset, hmmm
  10. we too can be gods, if only for a moment
