  1. Shuksan has always had delusions of grandeur
  2. Thanks Dan. That's very kind. The truth is, I was just tagging along. When I went back to do it the next year with the partner who had bailed, I got totally off route and we had to retreat down Ulrich's. Went back a few years after that and finally got my buddy to the top because we hooked up with a pair en route led by somebody who knew where he was going. My route finding disfunction (I'm directionally challenged) is legendary amongst my partners. It makes for great, funny stories because somehow we have all survived.
  3. You could paint dots on the rock every 100 feet (saw this in the Dolomites) and I would still get off route.
  4. Another reminder there is no climbing in Idaho

    "Hard to get to." How hard?

    Aid climbing always strikes me as too much work with a healthy dose of fear and suffering thrown in. I do appreciate an Ivanesque TR however.
  6. "New skis!"? Who needs skis when you've got 35# of crystal meth?
  7. Big Tree 1 gets some love

    Really, you replaced those bolts/hangers? They look fine. But thanks.
  8. [TR] Monte Cristo - Standard 06/22/2020

    Classic west side Cascade Alpine! My climbing "career" started doing that stuff with my dad when I was in my early teens, including many ascents in the Monte Cristo area. I loved it then and still do. It's good to see a father getting after it with his son. My boys never really took to it, although my younger will humor me from time to time with an easy scramble. Getting me started in the climbing game was one of my father's greatest gifts to me. Thanks for sharing the experience.
  9. Sauk River Road Access?

    Further evidence of road being open to TH: https://turns-all-year.com/trip-reports/glacier-peak-all-to-ourselves
  10. Triad Climb

    You might ask on TAY. There was mention of skiing the W face in a recent thread about the Lost Marbles Couloir
  11. That's a VERY understanding partner considering how good the conditions were anywhere in the Stevens Pass vicinity yesterday.
  12. [TR] Guye Peak - South Gully 02/20/2020

    I climbed that when I was in high school (about 40 years ago). I took a 30' fall (unroped, thank god) and landed in a soft, deep pile of snow. I was unfazed, but my partners were sure freaked out.

    Pretending you"re Ueli Steck seems like a bad idea.
  14. You guys nailed it. Nice work!
