  1. Good lord. Congrats on the climb and that sucks about the car. What a series of highs and lows.
  2. Awesome photos and nice work carrying someone else's shit out of the woods. I once found an empty bottle of 12 year scotch with the tube that I carried out of Nooksack Cirque. Talk about a let down when I figured out it was empty.
  3. Descend Burgundy Col without an axe?

    Be aware that there currently is a fire in Pine creek, one drainage north from Cutthroat Lake/Creek. If the Wine Spires area is not currently closed, it is possible that it will be soon. Okanogan-Wenatchee NF's Facebook page seems to have the most up to date information from them. There is currently nothing on their website. Here is a link to the Inciweb report for the Cutthroat Fire. https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/6054/ This will likely be kept up to date.
  4. lost LOST crampons, Mt. Adams

    I saw a post on the Turns All Year facebook page about found crampons. Hopefully they are yours.
  5. [TR] Silver Star Mountain - Silver Star Glacier 05/19/2018

    Driving down 20 coming into Mazama I did not see any on the main body of Goat, a smidge on the hill to the north of Goat Peak.
  6. Washington Pass conditions report

    Thanks Jon.
  7. Holy shit. CC.com has a photo viewer now! Whoever added that nice work!
  8. Grant Money to police climbers+

    Great, more conspiracy BS. Also included in your list were grants focused on other parts of the wilderness area, 250K for trail maintenance, 150K for campground maintenance, 100K for mountain bike trails. Maybe the headline should have been "Grant money to build trails and reduce human impacts" or maybe that wouldn't have the same ring to it.
  9. Looks like a great family adventure. Congrats.
  10. Mt Adams for first AT trip

    As usual it depends. If the south side is super firm then skinning up to Pikers can be challenging, let alone without practice with skinning technique. I'd say you'd be much better served with some practice before. Many AT boots/bindings can be difficult to figure out without experience with them, plus the potential issues of poorly maintained rental gear and boots that do not fit well. All in all I don't think I'd recommend it. Adams in a day is pretty big day for a lot of people(myself included) and if you guys are planning on breaking it up with a night at the Lunch Counter then you're committed to carrying up and over to the SW chutes. Skiing with a large overnight pack is also a lot different than at the resort with no pack or a tiny day pack.
  11. free FREE: Alpinist magazines 14-28

    I'd take them if you're willing to ship them. I'll shoot you a message.
  12. I may have been one of the bikers that passed you. Did the loop on Sunday. What a cool area and your photos do it justice!
  13. ONe of a kind guy. I was lucky enough to fly with him for 3-4 years when I worked for the NPS. He truly had an amazing amount of knowledge and life experiences.
  14. (got): Sony RX100 or similar point-and-shoot

    What did you end up paying for it? Those are super cool and I've been intrigued by them for a while.
