  3. Cobra vs. Viper

    dear god i want new ice tools. i look at reviews about the new fusions and nomics and cobras and vipers... shit i want em. climbed the vipers in hyalite and they were great to climb on. then again im swingin salvaged picks on some old BD Shrikes. very grateful to have tools of my own to swing, but fuck.... i want some new ones. yes im drunk and yes i did just say butt fuck.
  4. i do agree that these plb/mlu's offer a false sense of security. if im wearing it and brown stuff hits the whirly thing, then its my get out of jail free card right? sure it will help in certain situations but this opens a big door for possibility of people going further than they should when conditions are bad etc... and expecting that they will get rescued. i am a pilot and on aircraft we legally have to fly with an elt. thats fine and dandy but one thing i have learned over the years from reading accident reports and though all the aviation classes i have taken, the likely hood of rescuers (SAR, CAP, Law Enforcement...) is alot lower than one would expect and i believe it is very important to expect these things to actually NOT work and be conservative with youre actions.

  7. Cold injuries..frost bite?

    i was on denali's muldrow glacier this past summer with NOLS and another student ended up getting frostbite on one of his big toes. this was preceeded by him getting sick moving up to 15,000 feet which may have been attributed to dehydration, then ended up vomiting and not drinking much water during the ascent which deffinatly resulted in dehydration. im guessing dehydration was a major factor. he was wearing kolfach plastics with stock liners.
  8. yup. i also love how this trip report is just like a status update you would see on facebook. one of the many reasons i got rid of that shit a year ago

  13. Expedition Sled

    i clipped two separate leashes from the front of the sled to the stabilizer straps on my pack. (the adjustable straps that connect the body of the pack to the waistbelt). the next thing is important... give your self enough slack so that the leashes take the sleds weight, then take your rope going back to your partner and clip through caribiner on top of sled. then clove hitch rope to carabiner on the top aft of sled. this allows your partner behind you to pull sled back if it noses into a small crevasse, and also allows your partner behind to help take a little of the weight and keep the sled from going down too far on traverses.

  16. No Treadwall In Seattle?

    the school i went to in santa fe for a year had one. the novelty wore off really quickly. again good for repetative endurance but you can only have about 12 feet of routes and it just keeps repeating... over and over. and its not like you can actually do routes... no big holds, due to the construction, the moves arent really fun, because you cant look up and actually see where you are going. just foot, hand foot, hand... then it gets faster... but the same thing. i bet for the money it cost, my school could have build a really sweet bouldering wall and small toprope section.

    Memorial Ride on Sunday from Leschi at 9. Was an honor to begin racing as a junior and go on many training rides with Larry. He would fight and sprint up every hill we came to. i always knew larry as a cyclist and only after starting climbing, do i realize what kind of role he played in the climbing world as well.
