    Sounds about my speed... Do you know what it's rated at? 5.7? It's just to the left of Cinnamon Toast.

    Arrrgh, stuck at work 'til 6 =( Next week will be better since it's not a shorty..
  4. name that route

    That's pretty dang close. I actually don't know what the route is but it's not a .12! I was bored and it looked fun... I have a wide angle pic if no one get's it that should give it away. It's not in Watt's book either.
  5. name that route

  10. Alpiners Anonymous: PDX dry tool night

    Sounds like you all have been having fun while I was in Cuba.. but I'm back now and imigration didn't even try and stop me I'm pulling my house together this week, going to Smith this weekend and hope to make it out to RB one night next week. BTW Bill it's Joshua I'll try and whip up a TR on the climbing in Cuba tonight too..
  11. Foldable helmet

    Yeah, I don't think I'd advocate the use of a bike helmet for climbing either. Just saying the the helmet falling apart from an impact isn't necessarily a bad thing. I use BD hafldome for caving and climbing so I smack it into stuff all the time!
  12. Alpiners Anonymous: PDX dry tool night

    Yikes! I broke my tib , fib and ankle in a bike accident and that hurt like hell. Cant imagine what that must have been like for her! Amazed she survived. You really push the safety stuff Bill but it's obviously for a good reason! I'll see you out there when I get back in town
  13. Foldable helmet

    Great song.. I can't see how it saves any space?!? Can't you stuff things into a regular helmet in your pack? If anything I'd think that would take up more space.. I'm sure it's safe and all though. Look at bicycle helmets. If you use one in a crash you toss it and get a new one. That's the price of light weight. Not to mention the helmet deteriorating during impact is distributing and absorbing the force.
  14. I'm looking for a steady partner to climb with in the PDX area. Broughton, Rocky, Beacon, etc.. I climb with my GF now but she's not really into multipitch routes and I can really only get away with having her as a belay monkey for so long before she gets fed up with me. I have a pretty decent rack for trad and aid climbing. I've been climbing for about 15 years yet I'm still no good at it.... but then again for the past 5 years I've only gotten out a couple times a season. This year I've been shaking off the cobwebs and can lead 5.9s trad, perhaps easy 10s sport. I've been better in the past so I'm not a total loss... I would really like to be leading trad 11s at some point. I want to climb the Nose and think it'd be a lot more enjoyable (and faster) to free the majority of it! I have a standard 8-5 job and cycle commute. I live by St Vincent's so it's tough to over to the crags on week nights but weekends are no problem. Happy to pay for gas/rentals on trips to Smith, Leavenworth, the Valley, etc.. I also like sunsets and long walks on the beach. So if you have some skills and want to show me what's up that's great but I'd be happy with someone of equal skill that's just willing to get out and climb on a regular basis!
  15. Steady PDX climbing partner

    Thanks Bill! I should have also mentioned that I'll be in Cuba until the 26th of this month. Only two days of climbing there though.. Better than nothing
  16. Steady PDX climbing partner

    Damn, thought I could slip that one past you....
  17. FS: Portaledge, aid gear, etc...

    Don, that's awesome!
  20. Steins Pillar

    I went there like 10 years ago to check it out. I remember it looked pretty gnarly.... But there was a visible anchor on the uphill side (IIRC) with some slings on it.
