  2. [TR] Leavenworth - FA: The Goatee 12/5/2009

    Fun climb. Still in today, Saturday. Good find, but to describe as 3 70m pitches is not good description. Followed some guys we also followed on Chair last Saturday. Great minds think alike. 1st step was mushy and 10 -15 m 2nd step 2 minus, we solo down climbed it. Maybe 30 M, but not very technical. 3rd step is fun 40m Solid under the snice. takes screws well. Didn't bother going up to the 4th step. Looked fun and alpine but wanted to get back.
  3. Girlfriend routes

    Easiest multi pitch going is Easy Street, Gunshow, Exit 38. A great starter multi pitch for the timid. The rating of 5.6 WAY over rates it The belay ledge is airy. A step up is Ground Hogs Day in Leavenworth.
  4. Any one have recent beta on condition of Eldorado NE face route?
  5. Early Winter Spires conditions

    Did SEWS Saturday. No snow on route.
  6. [TR] February Buttress - Ground Hog Day 5/18/2008

    Last Wednesday we did GHD and kept going past the 3rd pitch. Very easy climbing. Some might not want to spend time due to easy of climbing on the 4th pitch. At almost exactly 1/2 rope length there is a shelf and a large boulder which now has a sling and rap rings. Hint: take a 30 feet of webbing and put some redundancy to that rap station. Beyond that there appears to be great 4th class low 5th scambling / big blocky climbing to what might be the summit. When time permits I'm heading back to finish off the climb ot the apparent summit. Also, I've climbed GHD twice now and both times rope got stuck on the rap from the 2nd rap station to the 1st. There is a ledge interfering with the rope pull Next time I'm climbing it and going to end that rap at the obvious ledge and scramble down to the anchors at top of Ain't Misbehavin or top of 1st pitch of GHD and then continue the descent.
  7. Rumors of ice?? conditions update??

    To use a climbing phrase "that's me" in the picture. Peter PS Looking a the picture I'ma getting a very vivid recollection of the sound of water about 6 inches to the right and under about 1/2 inch of ice.
  8. Banks Lake Ice

    Any soft spots? He's got his boat with him! I'm assuming the boat is for water on the lake, not for water on the climb.
  9. Vertical or horizontal front points for water ice?

    According to Will Gadd (page 27 "Ice & Mixed Climbing") "Horizontal frontpoints work far better for most pure ice climbing than vertical frontpoints......I challange any climber currently on vertical frontpoints to climb five pitches on a good horizonal frontpoint crampon and feel the difference." Next time out I'm going to try my horizonal glacier crampons..after sharpening them.
  10. Chair Peak Saturday...or similar

    Justin, Did you do Chair Peak? How was it? If not, are you still interested. I'm in Seattle. Could do 15th or 16th or possibly during the week. I did Hemlock Saturday. Snow is hard. Travel great. But I'm not so sure about how well pickets will hold. Snow is not consolidated inder hard surface. I did Chair as a rock climb last spring. Would like to do in winter. Also, would be interested in doing Bryant. Peter
  11. Partners needed for mid-week Rainier

    Blaine, I might be available. Would need to make a final decision fairly close to departure. Have glacier experience, great conditioning and a climbing permit. Did Little Tahoma earlier this summer. You? Have you done Emmons before? Peter
  12. I'm interested. Have done Baker, El Dorado, Little Tahoma and Shuksan so far this summer. Peter
