  7. After a cold week in Seattle.What has always been high hanging ice was on the ground on that day (2/9/14) FA ? I dont know. who out there knows. first shot is of leading route CYA with part of the touching down ice in background. the rest of the shots are of leading the touching down ice.
  8. first ascent Exit 38 ice, possible FA

    photo credit goes to Mike Massey. Thanks for the funny comments ! Well if it is an FA how about "The Thing" for a name. Definably a rarely seen thing at that crag or in Washington I guess. Bet that it formed an fell down in the span of a week. Luckily just happen to be there when it was best formed.

  17. 2011/12 Washington Ice Conditions

  18. 2011/12 Washington Ice Conditions

    late start hike out to see what Source Lake Line is looking like today. this is as close as i got. im free all this week to give it a closer look with gear.
  19. Newly Bolted Route: Sunshine Wall

    wow Thank You for all the kind words! Im just seeing this thread. route name has been shorten to "Pants Down" Yes back in mid 90s just went for the no prerehersal lead. thankfully it went good gear was super bad but cimbing was great.Yoder said it was an FFA. now roughly 15yrs later just thought it would be nice to put some bolts and anchor on the route. I hope this doesnt offend anybody. Im not replacing choped bolts or getting invovled in any debates. I dont know any of the story of who bolted or choped Red m&ms I do know Red m&ms is super great grear compared to Pants Down. Thanks again ,Dave M
  20. SLL what a Classic route out there ! you know if your not up for the epic lead of the route there is an easy way around. just go up the ramp to the right to the base of the short steep step baley follower here. then continue to top. then move left and rap off tree to the top anchor of SSL. Ive done this going out there early in season when route is a fun thin mix line and would be a free solo on lead.so have been thankful for the mellow way around. your top photos shows the way. Happy Climbing !
  21. Palouse Falls

    On a unimportant sidenote : Its amazing this falls was recently successfully run in a kayak. Making it the current world record for highest waterfall run in a kayak.
  22. La Nina: A bust thus far??

    I apologize for this I know this is NOT a kayaking site but this has been an EPIC whitewater winter season in western Wash. and recently in Leavenworth too, nonstop highwater levels ! Yes, unless we get lots more snow this springs runoff may be so so but it sure is nice now .
  23. CYA and dry tool wall

    First off I apoligize for my newbe friend who just started climbing 2 months ago.I just saw this. he went with us and just hungout on ground with camera. I dont know why he feels the need to spray. Thier was no soloing going on. Thankfully that crag has mellow hike around.TR anchors are setup on many trees on top with fixed biners. Thats what me and friend that climbed that day did. Crag was in great shape that day. as far as I know the line on right ( the TR photos) has no FA. is this true? it would be a great line. stout start to fat ice. hopefully another cold snap happens soon. this crag is great when its in!
  24. 2009/2010 Washington Ice

    went out to Source Lake Line today. Pat led the route just to the right of SLL.It was about 3+ to a 4- top out step at the end of route.Then got a TR on the unformed SLL.The piller was no where near to forming as fat as it was last year.But still a way way enjoyable link up on TR and totally dry.
  25. 2009/2010 Washington Ice
