  1. Wandering the hills last week I found what looks like a couple of good walls with what looks like ice and steep snow reminiscent of the North facing walls of Kent and Abiel Peaks. I have given up on being an ice climber but compulsively still look for lines. All photos were taken during this past week of warm sunny weather yet many faces still held ice. The first 3 photos are above the granite lakes on the backside of Mailbox peak. the 4th pic is of the West Face of Kaleetan Peak. That right leaning ramp looks promising. the 5th pic is of the NW shoulder of Web Mountain (a sub mountain between Mt Defiance and Dirty Harry’s peak. this one seems most intriguing because the Web Mountain trail from the Farside parking lot of Exit 38 seems to take you most of the way there from I-90.

    Love all those views. What a vantage point.

    Nice write up. I always appreciate the honesty in a good TR. there are always mixed feelings in big climbs. Congrats on an exciting day in the hills.

    Nice climb. And, agreed, I’ll give the NH “wicked fast” label too.
  5. Wow. Looks fun. So many adventures, so little time. Nice work on the marathon+ in a day. Wish my knee could handle that kind of “love” again. 😁

    Wild! Way to throw yourself at something like that.

  8. Wonderful read and the best mountain porn on the web. Thanks for always entertaining Jason. This is a good dose of Cascade love for me sweating my balls off in SE China. 🍻!
  9. Slesse Crossover Descent Landslide

    I recall skipping the meadow traverse and we did a longer traverse around the back side of Mt. Parkes. We had to descend into a basin and head up to a notch but it basically dropped us on the correct side directly above the talus field that leads to the flagged trail.

    Such a fun cascade outing. Too bad about the views. It’s position amidst the alpine lakes is hard to match.
  11. Wow. Great story. The older I get, the less I want to climb big peaks because of such dangers. Thanks for the reminder of that and also for the reinforcement that it’s not about the summit, but the journey.

    Sounds like adventure! Glad you all were able to summit and dodge some serious bullets. Learn from those experiences.
  13. Nice trip. I love the alpine lakes. I’ve done lots of exploring on and off trail out there and there are always new adventures to have. What a special place.
