  1. Nice report! I was out in that area years ago on a backpacking trip. Exiting over pistol pass and down that ridge on a hot afternoon was still one of the more miserable but also beautiful “trail” I’ve ever been on. Kudos for the out and back.

    We all experience these days. Thanks for posting anyways. I recently spent 3 days up at the Wine Spires of WA pass and basically got rained out everyday and climbed nothing. 🤷🏻‍♂️
  3. impressive and Very cool! I’m interested in hearing more about your decent. How did you get off the top of Whitehorse and end up back at the squire creek TH?
  4. Excellent! This valley just keeps getting better with each route and even mildly popular! I was clearing some of the trail up to the illusion wall last Thursday and there were two vehicles in the parking lot from out of state! 😮 Looks like the word is getting out! 😏

    Every outing, rain or shine, is an opportunity to learn about climbing and yourself. Keep at it! I love the youthful energy. Something this site has lacked for a while. Keep bringing the stoke, dude!

    Sweet photos! Thanks for sharing your adventure!
  7. [TR] Beebe Mountain - NE ridge 05/02/2021

    Wow! Wolverine tracks! That’s how you know you are on the path TRULY less traveled! Thanks for a glimpse at a seldom posted mountain!
  8. Beautiful! That Ross Lake shot is breath-taking!
  9. [TR] Broken Top - Full Richardson 04/05/2021

    Bad ass! Nice photos too! Thanks for sharing!
  10. This is awesome! Thank you so much for sharing this adventure! I was in Kauai 7 years ago and remember looking up at that mountain and that east face and wondering. What a special place.
  11. [TR] Mount Shuksan - NW Couloir 03/10/2021

    That’s a sweet line. Nice work being patient with conditions.
  12. [TR] Mt McLoughlin - Through rock in North bowl 03/03/2021

    Looks like this would be a fun ski in the right conditions. Way to use your eyes and not just a guide book
  13. Nice report Jason. I had a similar idea for my 2020 summer. I was out there at the same time with a small crew. MY first time. What a place! That East ridge of Wolf's head is special. We, too, got turned around on a couple routes because we were looking for "easier" climbing. Turns out, we were just weak, out of shape, and scared! LOL!
  14. [TR] Sperry Peak - East Gully 01/23/2021

    Rad! Almost makes me want to get a new pair of ice tools!
  15. [TR] Trappers Peak - South Ridge 01/23/2021

    How was the descent? Good skiing?
  16. [TR] WELKER! - Whacky Wallow 01/18/2021

    The king of cascade limbers strikes again! Maybe I should call you king of wallowing? King of choss? 🤣
  17. Sick! Looks dreamy! Jason, the yellow pad does not signal “junk show”. It signals “seasoned vet of the cascades” ... or so I like to tell myself when I, too am carrying one on my back! 😏🤣
  18. Wonderful! Thanks for sharing! Man, do I miss the Utah desert and all it’s lovely sandstone.
  19. [TR] Glacier NP - multiple 11/22/2020

    Interesting. I assumed there was good ice out there but never knew how big it was. Very nice!
  20. [TR] North Sister - Complete East Buttress 12/23/2020

    Sweet climb. Merry Christmas to you and thanks for the read.
  21. [TR] Mt Hood - Eliot Glacier 08/25/2006

    Cool! What did you find up there? ice giants? the holy grail? fun? 😊
  22. Amazing. I love how casual this reads. No issues, no epics, just sendfest. 🤣 Seriously though, super impressive ascent. I agree with Jason on the Swenson torch. Impressive. Keep climbing!
  23. [TR] Diobsud Buttes - Standard 04/16/2020

    Classic shoulder season scrambles. Nice one. I always wondered what these buttes looked like. Thanks for sharing as usual.
  24. [TR] Lundin Peak - West Ridge 10/27/2020

    I love this time of year for climbing a peak. Shoulder seasons are the best time for a random peak scramble, although with the way the cascades are these days, Is say Lundin is not considered “random”.
  25. Conditions Report: Static Point

    Oh no! The Himalayan black berries have made it back that far into that watershed!? Thanks for the hard work out there. It’s too bad the walk is so far these days. I remember being out there with my then girlfriend. We backed off of the crux of online. She didn’t like the runout/crux combo. I didn’t argue. Maybe we will go back now. I too wonder exactly what pitches were retro bolted and how many new bolts were added.
