  1. Beckey is now contouring upwards, ascending the obvious vertical path, attaining his last summit. Thanks for all the written guidance, while sometimes a bit cryptic, and inspiration to follow in your foot steps. Rest in peace.
  2. Stellar! Great to see a FA. I was just wondering what you were up to last week, now I know. Strong effort!
  3. .3 blue BD cam. has pink and purple dot of nail polish on it somewhere. stuffed in on 5.8 section. what kind of beer do you drink?
  4. Nice, a great read. You did well capturing the essence of that route!
  5. Did the east ridge direct 2 weeks ago. Snow gulley was hard in the AM, bring crampons. Route was in great shape, streams were easy to cross. My guess is any snow from the last storm is gone with current freezing levels. Feel free to clip my stuck #.3 on the 5.8 section. Watch out for small loose pyramid shaped finger crimp block next to the stuck cam. We both thought of trundling it, but didn't know if anyone was below on the east ledges. Descent: Do five 80' to 100' raps from a slung block 15' south of summit. Go all the way to then end of your ropes for the 4th rap anchor; look around you'll see it. End of 5th rap; work across staying not high or low. After 45 minutes or so, aim for tower where your gear is. Good Luck, beautiful climb!
  6. Nice! We're heading up there nest week. How long did it take you from camp to camp? How was the bivy you mentioned? Comfortable?
  7. Napeequa to Thunder Basin is feasable. Check out the TR for some details. Trail out of Thunder Basin is overgrown and hard to follow, but the basin is gorgeous. You can look at trip reports and search on "dakobed"; the old indian name for range. Good luck http://cascadeclimbers.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=1111313
  8. Did it last Monday. My partner had tennies on, I kicked steps and she had cold toes. No 'schrund, quite a bit of snow and more consolidated then I would expected.
  9. wow, spooky. Thanks for the update.
  10. Thank you taking the time to let the community know what happened. Terribly sorry for your loss. I wish you the very best in getting through this most difficult time.
  11. excellent! looks like nice coverage at the top made dropping in easy.
  12. First world problems in a third world country. Stewart doesn't seem bothered by the hole left in the families of the dead sherpas.
