  1. Missing on Hood

    our prayers go out to all involved! anyone know who the climbers were?
  2. Im wanting to take the kids and wife sledding tomorow (1-1-08) and was wondering if anyone knew of any sledding hills near battle ground. by near, i mean closer than mt hood, or oldman pass area. are there any near mt st helens? without climbing onto the mountain itself? kids range from 8-13, so looking for something easy to get to, but exciting for the older one (and me of course!) thanks. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! dave

  11. Jack's Burned Down

    climbers register is at the cougar store now. im definately going to miss jacks. it was a must stop. we've been in there a few times when the restaraunt was already closed, but they cooked us up some grub anyway. you dont see that very much anymore!
  12. Road conditions to St Helen's Bivi?

    cant believe jacks burned down! crazy. our prayers go out for the owners. looks like the avy danger is going to go up this weekend. may be just sticking to the ridge, and have to abandon the summit. any one know of any routes that get close to the top without crossing any snow fields? probably not eh. i know the worm flows has a large one at the top, but if i remember correctly, until about 6800ft, you can stay on the ridge, and should be out of harms way, no? i dont want to abandon the trip altogether, but then again, i would also like to be able to come back and see my wife and kids again!!!!!
