  1. If anyone wants to rope up together on the upper mountain of Rainier, call or text me at 318-243- one six eight seven. I'm planning on heading up to Muir tomorrow in case the weather opens up. Kane
  2. On my way to Rainier now to climb if weather opens up. Call or text me 318-243- one six eight seven if you'd like to meet up. I need a partner also.
  3. I'm traveling to Washington to climb Rainier with a friend from July 2 - July 6, we are short on pickets and it would be great to not have to buy them. If anyone has some laying around willing to loan us, please let me know what beer you like! K4N3
  4. Anyone have some spare pickets?

    We are going the standard route and I also think we'd be fine with just one each. My partner is concerned since we are a 2-person party, if one of us fell into a crevasse we'd need the extra for the Z anchor rescue. It's been a while since I've been in the mountains so I didn't argue the point. Alisse and DPS thank you for offering! I'll PM when I know 100% if he wants to take them. Considering how many people will be up there and how well traveled the path will be I'm going to try and talk him out of it.
  5. Are the trango cubes still available?
  6. Felt like I had to post this since I never hear anything about the clothing line from First Ascent. They have some nice stuff and I am ordering a peice right now. Looking through the features, it is definately built for climbers. HERE

  8. Wide Mountaineering Boots

    I've also got an EE 10.5 street size. I'm wearing an 11 in Lowa boots with a good fit. My old Vasques were narrow in the front forefoot area.

I'm open to idea's on routes and up for a good challenge.I have been on Rainier these same dates in 2009. Pm me if your interested and from the area.

    Harness. Check out Elderid for some light stuff.
  13. My Gear List: Please critique it!

    RHO is overrated. Get flatlock stitching. Next time you get that shirt in your hands look on the inside.
  14. I remember taking that same course 2 years ago, it started may 7. Personally I brought a down jacket. I think you will be fine with either seriously just be cautous of the down. My biggest problem was gloves. After 2 days of self arrests and crevase rescue they were soaked through bad, and I never got them dried out.Remember to bring spares and handwarmers arent a bad idea.
  15. Granite Gear Packs

    So its time for a new pack for climbing and I am looking for some reviews on granite gear packs. Specifically the Granite Gear Stratus . Honestly I've not had good luck when it comes to packs, and I think one thing that I have learned is not to go"light" and skimp on comfort. This one I do like becuase of the Front access, and also the clean design. Does anyone have have any input? How are the GG frame designs. Gotta say it looks comfy to me.
  16. Ice/Alpine Tools - Camp Awax

    Thanks for posting that link. I just ordered another awax from that site. Good price, and great service. I made a mistake on the address and sent an email. With in 5 minutes I got a call about making the correction at 9 pm tonight. He also ended up having some of the "fangs" to make them leashless. Awsome!
  17. I'd be interested in the Argon Ice pants. What material are they? Please send pictures to kane_schutzman@hotmail.com. Any holes or rips and how much were they used. Thanks.
  18. Used twice and most recently I used them a week ago on Mt Rainier. Great boots, and walk very nice. Liners are not packed out and are in great shape. Basically these are going to be just as good as boots pulled out of a new box. They are US size 11, and fit my size 10.5 foot great with a heavyweight sock. Asking 175 shipped anywhere in the USA.
  19. BCA Tracker Beacon

    Beacon was turned partway on the hike up to Muir two weeks ago. It is basically new. Works flawless, and has been out of the box for less than a month. Not even a scratch. I would keep it, but I will not be climbing anything where this is needed, or skiing for at the least two years. So here it is. Asking 175
  20. I have a pair of Ice 9000's that are too small for me now. When I got them about a year ago they were fine but now with thick socks, they are no good for me. I feel like these would be perfect for someone with a size 10 foot. I have a wider footprint and they fit good, not super narrow like some brands. They are in great shape. Looking to sell them or trade for size 11 in something. If no one wants them here, I ll put them on ebay in a few days. Thanks
