  4. Sunshine conditions and TJ road

    jimmy, thanks man. really appreciate the info. were going to be doing some crevasse rescue practice on the Eliot next Sunday, our plan was to head up and camp on the snow dome, then get up early and climb Monday night. but with the way you described it, and from what i remember of all the rock coming off the summit last year we did this, i think we will call it a day and not climb. we'll go ahead and wait until things get a little snow covered and frozen over before attempting it. thanks again!
  5. cold springs th closed due to forest fire!

  6. Sunshine conditions and TJ road

    ha! i've done a lot of white water rafting, so i figured id try kayaking a few years ago. the guys on tv make it look so easy, and i raft alot, so how hard could it be right? i tried it, no class, no one with experience to show me. went on a pretty small river, the upper kalama during late spring, bout killed myself! found out just how different rafting and kayaking are! My climbing partner is worried about doing hood right now due to all the rock, and im getting there with the doc who just got killed. the only thing i've climbed this late in the year are walk ups, like st helens and south sister. your right though, one guy can say its super safe, but yet it can change, or i see it differently, so we'll just need to go and see. its next weekend. and one more thing, why a shuttle, is decent back down sunshine not a good thing? i will try to post more beta in future. you are right, i don't tend to post much!

  8. Sunshine conditions and TJ road

    i read about it. they were decending cooper spur when it happened though. i know that is a high rockfall area, it has a couple thousand feet of steep, loose rock on it. im curious as to the sunshine route.
  9. Sunshine conditions and TJ road

    by committing move, are you talking about the climb over the berg? what is the rockfall potential on this route? ive been on the eliott glacier a few times, we do an annual rescue practice up there, but i've never climbed the sunshine before. From all the pics, and beta i've gathered, there doesn't appear to be any significant rockfall areas. By that I mean it doesnt appear that there are long walls and cliffs of rock above the route. im ok with climbing the berg, just dont want to get hit by a bus on the way!
  10. if the south side opens up by next weekend, we'll be heading there instead. we changed our plans because of the stupid fire! we want to do mazama glacier route on adams, but unless that happens, we'll be down south. good luck
  11. there are quite a few crevasses to the right of the worm flows climbing route. if you stick close to the ridges you will avoid them. if you wander out onto the swift glacier you will find them for sure. i have never seen anyone use ropes and harness on this mountain. that said, i usually carry them, just incase someone on another team wanders to close to those holes in the snow! up to you what your comfort level is. should be good with just good boots (waterproof), and gaiters. ice axe and crampons are always a good idea. that way when you get tired of ridge scrambling you can get down into the snow. remember to take off crampons before you decide to glissade down! we're heading down to middle sister the 2nd and 3rd. you should try that one! pretty fun.
  12. Sunshine conditions and TJ road

    looking for updated info on the sunshine route. did anyone climb it successfully this weekend? what is the rockfall like on the sunshine route, i know it is getting pretty bad elsewhere on the mountain, but how is it on this route? our condolences go to the family of the climber who died this weekend. we will be praying for you!

    best time to do the caves and the summit is the dead of winter. you have a real good chance of not seeing other people at all. you go now, and its a cluster, like going to the mall
