  4. Any thoughts on great 3 season climbing boots? My Mammut Marooks climbed great but don't fit well. weigh only 1720g I am covered for winter boots. I'll have to hit a store to try some on but welcome opinions & experiences- good and bad...
  5. lightly used- though they climb great and are super light they don't fit me quite right: Mammut Marook GTX Boots Mens 9.5 =42.5 1720gm http://www.mammut.ch/en/productDetail/301000420_v_3107_85/Mamook-GTX%C2%AE-Men.html 5 star reviews: http://www.backcountry.com/mammut-mamook-gtx-boot-mens#review make an offer
  6. Northern spain open to interpretation- sounds like you're willing to travel. It is a large country. I spent 2 months bike touring and sport climbing there with my wife. Sella and El Chorro are both some of the 5 star larger places you could climb at for a month. Awesome! Summitpost.com is good for international destinations.

    I've got one in Everett that I'm not using - send me PM or an email
  8. So Rad! thanks for sharing! btw: there are more taxidermists in Everett than Taxis per yellow pages in case you want a pro to mount that rack (so to speak). ; )
  9. Fantastic! sounds like an awesome adventure!
  10. Fantastic report and pictures. Thanks for sharing! I climbed a week (and drank 'OL') there in 2001 and recall likening it to Quebec and NH too. Fantastic country but also very 'western' and less exotic than some places. This makes it easy to get around if you have the dough - it was expensive even then. I believe the amazing fjord regions are less NE-like. I have some guidebooks/contacts to share if anyone is similarly inspired for rock.
  11. Thinking for a week away June 11 or so. Anyone been up there lately? Cheers, Vinny

  13. Hey there, we're looking do find some ice or rock climbing around Juneau in mid-late June. just a couple days rules out the big routes unless there are super cheap chopper flights. I Found the sea cliffs potential- mile33 and Jumbo summer couloir looks good after the approach: http://www.summitpost.org/trip-report/503475/Mount-Jumbo-Summer-Couloir.html any other recommends? Cheers, Vinny
