  2. A day with Fred

    Fred is going to outlive all of us!
  3. Chair Peak - Sat 2/9...

    No we didn't attempt the route on Saturday. We were on the approach road/trail w beers on Saturday afternoon when you guys were skiing out. If that was you guys...??? We bivied in the parking lot, overslept until 8:30 am, did the approach on foot, and still got up and down the route in daylight. Great day out with good friends. My partners have photos of us on the summit but that's about it. I don't think there were any taken on the route.
  4. Chair Peak - Sat 2/9...

    We ran into people who had bailed off Chair on Saturday due to high winds and spindrift. Sunday was nice on N Face route. Funky ice and snow layers in some areas with great styrofoam neve in others.
  5. Are these Euro size 47.5?
  6. Boots with wide toe boxes

    Scarpas are a good fit but unfortunately don't climb as well as Sportivas IMO
  7. Optimal height for stepups?

    Doesn't Mtn Athlete provide you with support? Seems misdirected to be asking this question here. I have looked into their programming but, being the cheap bastard that I am, never wanted to fork over the cash.
  8. Lillooet help.

    La Nina may still deliver the goods to Lillooet but I wouldn't bank on it. I would think mid-March in Lillooet would be the tail end of an exceptional season.
  9. For sale is a brand new Arc'teryx Kappa SV Hoody Jacket. Size is women's large, color is black and tags are still on. http://www.arcteryx.com/Product.aspx?EN/Womens/Jackets/Kappa-SV-Hoody-W This jacket retails for $475, I will part with it for $250 which includes standard shipping to anywhere in Canada or the Lower 48. I got a good deal for this jacket but it's unfortunately too big for my wife so I'm just trying to recover my costs. PM me if interested
  10. lillooet ice conditions

    There is enough ice in Hyalite right now to keep busy for at least a week. This is not the case in Lillooet. We wouldn't do that to you guys. Nothing to climb here in BC.
  11. Hey Ed, Ssshhhhhhh Rugged is not worth the trip nor is anything else in the area. In fact when it's not slab it's choss. The entire island is a pile of rubble. Don't bother visiting with the intention of climbing ANYTHING.
  12. Used aid climbing gear that just isn't getting used. I've gone to the dark side and now spend all my climbing time in the alpine, on ice or free climbing. Everything is in good or excellent shape except for the russian aider cuffs, which are useable but could use some stitching or patching on the straps as reinforcement, and the yellow alien, which could use a new sling. The lobes on both cams are in good shape and the black alien has been tensile tested by CCH after being purchased, marked by a stamp. Two of the three BD Cliffhanger Hooks have been filed: one to a sharp point (hawk) and the other for bathooks. FISH snake charmer rope bag has been used once. Static rope has been used lightly and is otherwise in great shape.

  19. Mt. Baker N Ridge beta

    Hi, Just wondering if anyone has advice regarding going for the N Ridge later this month. In particular, are the late-season crevasses and bergschrunds prohibitively difficult to pass, or with this year's snow pack would the N Ridge be relatively easy to approach and get on. If I'm not mistaken, the guide books say that this route is typically done in the spring and early summer. Any alternative routes if you expect the N Ridge to be a pain in the arse to get on later this month? Thanks in advance
