    Good thing we did not kill each other by broken off holds. Oregonian towers is an acquired taste, do it once and never again. A note on the approach: do not follow the approach description saying "locate the tower and just hike up there" - or else you might never come back. The tower is surrounded by vertical cliffs overgrown with devils club. There is however a wooden plank arrow just off the Y-intersection where you park the car. Follow up hill in that direction until you hit the rock (loose cl. 4-5), take hard right and traverse over up to the base of the climb through the mix of rotten logs and loose scree where having an axe would be a good idea.
  2. Has anyone been up there recently and know whether the water source near Bench camp (10 min hike north) is still there or is there any snow left around the camp? TIA Anastasia

    Anyone who climbed NEB via Crossover descent know what is the current situation with water sources or remaining snow? Worth bringing a stove?
  8. Nice work. What is water situation on the approach and the route?

  11. Mt. FURY - in July

    Looking for a motivated partner to climb NE buttress (first choice, condition-dependent) or the standard Fury glacier. Planning to approach via Axes creek and Luna cirque. Some time in July, I am flexible on timing. Ideally, I'd like to do a less committing objective first, alpine rock, etc. Anastasia

    Juan, I am as liberal as they are bred. Ask Dan Smith. How about Rainier in a day on Monday? That should condition you all right. Anastasia

    A word AUDACITY comes to mind. Not many people have it but Laurel was just that. Best of the best and gone so freaking soon. A lot of inspiring memories with this girl. So devastating.
