  1. Reviving and OLD thread here...For what it's worth last weekend I found a round aluminum tube (1 1/4" X 2 feet long, twisted and shredded on each end) just below the terminus of the nisqually glacier. I immediately though it could be plane debris.

    Mt Hood

    I am driving down tonight, can anyone tell what this temp inversion is doing high on the mountain?
  3. I all depends on the circumstance, but I typically rope up when there are hidden crevasses (glaciers) and on technical terrain when putting in gear, otherwise I take the rope off.
  4. I use either the 70M Serenity or twin Blue Water Ice Floss depending on the route. I like 'em both.
  5. I usually carry 3 long screws on that route. It is hard to say what the current conditions are (any trip reports?). Sometimes it is snow, sometimes ice.
  6. I was there 2 weeks ago and did the Zipper on Lanes Pk. Still loads of snow but at least the Stevens Canyon Road is open. We hit Lanes Pk early in the am, it was slightly above freezing with mashed potatoes snow. We used no flotation without any trouble but in the afternoon it would have been a different story. Avy issues..... most of the "normal" spring slides appear to have already slid, at least on Lanes, but there was certainly some potential for more, especially (or obviously) during the heat of the day. But, being 2 weeks ago it is hard to say what is going on right now. Let us know how it goes!
  7. I am heading to St Helens this weekend and curious if anyone has been up in the last few days and knows the condition of the snow pack. Is floatation needed?
  8. I seem to always lose my appetite at elevation, so mainly eat for fuel. I normally go with Gu (or similar), delicious halva, and snickers.
  9. Don't forget that with a good self belay you won't be using the self arrest that often
  10. That Gridlock looks nice, I've gotta get one of those to try out.
  11. Just listening to Raindawgs rants makes me feel like pounding pins and grid bolting!
  12. Hey Nick, Troy Moss here.... Count me in!
