  1. La Nina: A bust thus far??

    Over here on the east coast it's pretty sad. I don't feel as bad if it's not killer out there.
  2. I'm looking to buy your old retired climbing ropes. In absolutely no way will these be used for climbing. I am trying to make dog leashes. If anyone has some ropes they want to part with, I'm willing to pay $10-20 per rope plus shipping. Thanks, Justin

  6. I am selling my Atomic Janak Bro skis with bindings and skins. They have been drilled once for an AT setup, and have the tele bindings on them now. The skis are in good shape, with a few small dings on the topsheet, but nothing that broke through the clear coat. The skins are this year's G3 skins with the two metal tip pieces. I have used sz. 26 and 27 boots on them, and am sure a sz.28 would fit fine. I am asking $350 for the whole deal, local sales only. Please be able to pick them up in the Seattle area. Cash. I don't mind driving a little way to meet you. Thanks! Any questions just ask.
  7. Trip: Leavenworth - R&D Date: 4/4/2010 Trip Report: I brought a friend out to Leavenworth for Easter. As we drove through Steven's Pass I was getting discouraged. The weather report said clouds but no precip, yet it was definitely snowing. As we approached the icicle, it was snowing lightly, so we drove on. My buddy hasn't climbed in 10 years, and only did a very small bit back then, so this was going to be a bit of an adventure for him. We got up to the base, and I roped up and headed off. I had never been on this route, and was a bit surprised to feel the big block move when I pulled on it on P1. P2 was very straightforward, and no pro was placed until the anchor. P3 was a bit exciting since there was water running down the entrance to the chimney, and a bit on the walls of the chimney. It dried up on P4 and was a fun finish. We went up the crack to the right, then finished up the crack above. The final pitch was a full 60m rope length. All in all it was cold but fun, and great to see a friend enjoy getting out on some rock. The snow fell intermittently, and gave it all more of an alpine feel. Gear Notes: 60m rope, standard rack
  8. Damn, I really wanna do a roadtrip now. Great pics, fun to read report.
  9. [TR] Joshua Tree - 3/23/2010

    You made me miss my favorite climbing area even more. Though I will answer your question about where else can you find a 5.9 with a heel hook. Go to the Gunks, they have 5.3 roof climbs! Great trip write up, and awesome pics. Keep on sending, and enjoy the road trip.
  10. [TR] Mt. Maude - N. Face 3/24/2010

    Sounds like a great trip! Way to get after it, even with all the delays of spring break and tits. Solid work
  11. I was up there before this last snow cycle, and it wasn't really ready yet. South facing aspects are nice. I can imagine after the last snow it only got a little worse.
  12. Mountaineering boots for wider toes?

    Also, summer weight boots tend to be softer, since they are for walking on trails as well as climbing. Just something I have noticed across the board.
  13. Mountaineering boots for wider toes?

    Check out the Asolo Expert boots, they tend to run a bit wider, though not much stiffer than the charmoz. A good summer boot. I haven't tried the Asolo Makalu, but I suspect it may be a bit stiffer, and still run with the wider toe box. For the Kaylands you have, try putting a superfeet footbed, it will help keep your foot more stable in it and reduce slippage to the front. Also, try lacing by running it to the top hook, then down to a hook over the ankle and lacing it there. This sounds silly, but it will help hold your foot further back in the boot. Superfeet guarantee their footbeds with a 100% refund for 60 days, so if it doesn't work, no big deal. It may be an easy $35-45 fix for you. Good luck!
  14. Whoops, I meant I suck at skiing, haha! I'm still an intermediate telemarker at best, so I don't get to venture up too high yet.
