  1. Washington Pass conditions report

    Still very active out there. Big slide on Hwy 2 yesterday shut down the highway. I'm ready for it to dry up and corn season to get started!
  2. Selling a brand new mint condition BD / Bibler I-Tent. This time-tested 4 season design is great for mountaineering in the Cascades and trips to the greater ranges. Comes with all accessories and still has original tags. Its never been used I've only set it up in my lawn a couple times.
  3. Speed records in Washington

    Are these all c to c times?
  4. Best metal bands

    Ha. Trick question. There are none!
  5. How about Quinn Koenig?

    I once heard the route name was in reference to Quin's prototype design of a cone shaped helmet for deflecting rockfall. The route name apparently reflects the namers opinion on the efficacy of the helmet design.
  6. Lots of snow still!
  7. Wanted: Sunny dry place to visit.

    J Trees a great place for seeing famous climbers. I've met Bridwell and Alan Steck. And also Jim Beyer, who was into putting up A5 routes solo, like "Death of American Democracy," in the Fisher Towers. Good name.
  8. Wanted: Sunny dry place to visit.

    Don't come to 11worth it's been snowing every day since like November
  9. Red Bull Climbers Suck!

    Good ol' box wine. Cheaper and easier to fill your nalgene with. Ivan, if you were to get sponsored it would be by Gallo and smokes indeed.
  10. Red Bull Climbers Suck!

    Not sure I see what's wrong with selling out for a climbing sponsor. I wish I could get sponsored by a winery. Preferably something in France.
  11. Do Billionare's Really Earn it?

    The ironic thing is after factoring my mortgage and car and student loans, the bum on the corner with $1.50 in his pocket probably has a higher net worth than me.
  12. Create American Refugee Camps for homeless?

    They have those in Seattle. I guess it helps the homeless issue but definitely doesn't solve the problem.
  13. Triple Couloirs, Alpine Ice, or something fun

    Nice work Josh. Sounds like NBC might be be a good ski right now
  14. Triple Couloirs, Alpine Ice, or something fun

    I think it needs some melt / freeze to come in good for climbing that's why spring tends to be the season to climb it.
  15. I think you could be a trauma surgeon but without a good kit you'd pretty much be useless. Whether through WFR or not, aquiring a minimal but efficient first aid kit and the knowledge of how to do basic trauma management - treating hemorrhage and splinting, is probably your best bet I think.
  16. Van Halen

    Panama, bro. Panama.
  17. Torment-Forbidden in Winter

    Pictures from Summit post but I've seen it in similar condition in person, all rimed up, and it looked pretty cool.
  18. Torment-Forbidden in Winter

    Probably not a very enjoyable or aesthetic "climb" in which objective danger would far outweigh the quality of it. For the area, the west arete on Eldo in winter seems like a better objective but I think it has been done by Kit Lewis maybe?
  19. Hikes in the French/Swiss Alps?

    Google "tour du Queyras hiking."
  20. Hikes in the French/Swiss Alps?

    If you can swing heading a bit further south I would highly recommend the Tour de Queyras in the southwest Alps especially if you're looking for something off the beaten path (at least for the Alps).
  21. Hikes in the French/Swiss Alps?

    What part of the French Alps? Are you limited to the Savoie near the border with Switzerland or are you open to other areas?
  22. Looking for recs on this years road trips

    NE Butt of Higher Cathedral is pretty shady. Its popular but not like some others. Its 5.9, but old school 5.9.
  23. I need recommendations for ski clothes to fit over my enormously large pecs and biceps. And gloves for my gigantic hands that make Don Trump's look like Oompa Loompa's.
