  1. i would wait until early/mid july i hiked through in early august on the pct once and there was still significant snowpack
  2. i thought for sure i would see some trip reports, summited on sunday morning, all around excellent conditions, low temps w/ winds 0-10mph variable snow & ice around 9k, variable snow from unconsolidated to firm wind blown snow with little/no ice above 10k, excellent solid, climbable rime, which may be gone after the weather system looked like some unstable snow on WCR
  3. scion xa/xb/xd of all years are a bit smaller and lower ground clearance than the matrix but would still haul a lot of crap
  4. you might look into a toyota matrix, they offer it in awd as well, the awd system is not nearly as good as subarus but should give you very reasonable traction
  5. should anything be in, in washington around sunday-tues? or should i head up to banff?
  6. i doubt hood will have reasonable conditions for quite some time, its been dumping snow, over a layer of already unconsolidated snow, i imagine youll be postholing all the way up
  7. summitchaser is the biggest troll on the board
  8. i think there is some climbing on around marys peak but just a roadside blasted out cliff
  9. anything else on sale there or just the jacket?
  10. thanks for the advice everyone, looks like i will end up taking my invernos or maybe getting a lighter double
  11. im debating on whether i will be taking a my double boots, i would much rather have something lighter that would be easier to work with on technical stuff, can i get away with a single boot considering most the climbs there dont have too much of an approach? thinking of la sportiva nepals, kayland m11+ or hypertraction, scarpa mont blanc
  12. i actually have taken a gps and watched the amount of gain/loss on the traverse and it has amounted to 80 feet however, my gps shows climbers bivouac parking lot @ 3,820 ft, making the total elevation gained exactly the same... in addition to that, there is a margin of error +- 50 feet note: none of the above actually happened
  13. Had a change of trip plans to somewhere warmer, dont need this stuff anymore Scarpa invernos w/ high altitude liner 10.5 US, would like to sell for $175/offer, have about 3 climbs on them on snow only, has some scuffs and worn paint but otherwise excellent condition North face himalayan Parka size medium has been worn a for a few climbs for a short period, pretty much new... no holes or rips, $280/offer... this coat is similar to an absolute zero parka prefer local pickup in PDX, would be willing to drive a little ways, otherwise buyer pays shipping http://www.backcountry.com/the-north-face-himalayan-down-parka-mens http://www.rei.com/product/780182
