  7. Have new toddler but still love to climb

    can you make it a family thing? ive seen it happen with the guys quitting also, although not as often! spend some time climbing on your own, with the guys, but get a kids full body harness and spend some time out with the kid on the rock. let the wife know that when you go as a family, it will be more about spending time with her and the kid. eventually she will (hopefully) come around. took about 10 years for mine!!!! but now i have 3 girls ages 8,9, and 13, who love to climb. things change when you have kids, but they dont have to stop!! good luck. dave
  8. The forest service says it is not plowing the roads to the snow park for the rest of the season. I was wondering if anyone has been up lately, if it was passible at all. The snow levels have gone up, not sure if thats enough to melt the 7ft of snow thats is supposed to be at marble mountain though.
  9. had them say roads were impassable before, and made it up fine with chains, no actual gates. i was wondering if anyones actually gone up and looked, or if the info on the forest service site has kept all from trying, like me! (so far)
  10. Various Ice Gear/Clothes

    pm on jackets
  11. What kind of skis are best for climbing? Are there more than one kind? I would like to try it out, but i have never skied (sp?) before, and am not even sure this would be a good idea with my lack of experience on skis. Do you use climbing boots, or do you have to wear ski boots? If you wear ski boots, can you climb in them when it gets to steep/technical to ski? Seems like this would be the way to go with long winter approaches, and could make coming down the mountain a little less painful. One more question, what kind of prices would I be looking at to buy a used setup? Thanks for you patience!! dave

    both the marble mountain and cougar snow parks are closed du to too much snow. the road is closed at the junction with 90. too much snow for the plows. we're going to try again on the 13th. hopefully it will be ok, then to hood the first week of march. good luck next time eh

  16. Worm Flows or Crescent Ridge

    the snowmobilers arent a problem that i've noticed, except as you cross through the parking lot to get to the trail. then there are none from there up. there are avalanche warnings up right now, we'll see what conditions are going to be like this weekend though. you would have to go into cougar to get the permit. im hoping to go up sunday evening/monday morning. let me know what the conditions are like when you get back would ya? thanks, good luck dave
