  3. Sorry for the cross post, photos and info up here: http://mountainproject.com/v/shoe-sale-scarpa-helix-and-mad-rock-phoenix-9-95-and-10/109696139 $30, 35$ and 55$
  4. Watch http://www.westcoastice.com/ and this forum for trip reports, if we get a early freeze some low elevation ice climbs can form over the boarder in the Hope area that are really fun, but they are all just super weather dependent. Bellingham is a generally warm place, most of the year there is not much besides what Wayne mentioned.....
  5. Trip: Washington Pass and the Sierra - Many Date: 7/10/2014 Trip Report: Blog post from some summer ramblings including a dozen or so long routes in Washington Pass and the High Sierra. Sorry for the graduation and school photos the climbing bits follow, just wanted to pass the stoke. It seems everyone is getting out and I have been lurking for a while and finally have some images to contribute. Have fun and stay safe out there! -Kirk http://mtnsaremyhome.blogspot.com/2014/08/graduation-and-summer-road-trip-2014.html Gear Notes: Lots: unfortunately I'm no Alex Honnold. Approach Notes: Truck.
  6. Trip: Mt. Snoqualmie - NY Gully Date: 1/1/2014 Trip Report: What a fantastic day out! I know there are quite a few TR's on this route, but I have not seen any this year. We tried to make lemonade from the cold and dry snap we had there for a while. I have no idea what shape the route might be in now.... http://mtnsaremyhome.blogspot.com/2014/01/new-york-gully-mt-snoqualmie-mixed.html Cheers! Gear Notes: Single rack, few stubbies, pins, nuts, sausage and cheese. Approach Notes: Car.
  7. Trip: Southern BC - Piccadilly Circus Date: 12/11/2013 Trip Report: Mellow day out after finals right at the end of the cold snap, I think we caught one of the last days. Sorry it took me a little bit to get this up, work and then stuck in an airport for a few days without wifi... http://mtnsaremyhome.blogspot.com/2013/12/southern-british-columbia-ice.html Same route G-spotter posted. It was a very enjoyable afternoon, lets hope it gets cold again, or I'll just start driving father I guess. I didn't realize it, but you can subscribe to conditions updates at www.westcoastice.com which seems very helpful. Cheers! Gear Notes: Tortilla chips. Approach Notes: Highway.

  13. Such a cool area! The lake goes on for eeeeeveerrrrr lol. Nice too meet you guys up there! You hit the weather a bit better than us. But thanks for what was left of some of the skin tracks. Photos look great too! We tagged East Castle, North face of Carr, and East Couloir? on Davidson the first day out when the weather was still good. We checked out the NW face of Castle but it was way too cracked up to navigate and rap into, so that was a bummer. The weather kind of went south and we made a 6hr slog over to Garibaldi in intermittent clouds, but the weather socked in below the summit which was also a bummer. Mellow day next and made it up deception in the storm, and then also tried to scamper up Price in the fading light but encountered some sensitive wind slabs and headed down and took off the next day in a whiteout. The approach trail was pretty heinous it got baked and turned into ice.... Have a good winter and stay safe! Cheers, -Kirk

  24. Trip: Burge Mountain - Tonasket - Few Date: 8/11/2012 Trip Report: Cool area in the middle of nowhere I had never heard of! I look forward to spending more time there eventually, there are tons of routes to explore. Early spring or late fall would be the best seasons I think. Mountain project has a few of the walls, but not many route descriptions I was able to track down a local PDF that is about 25 pages, let me know if anyone is interested and wants a copy. http://mtnsaremyhome.blogspot.com/ Gear Notes: Sun screen and water, or an alarmclock to wake up early. Approach Notes: Drive, walk to the walls.
  25. Trip: Darrington - Many Date: 8/1/2012 Trip Report: As time goes on somehow I seem to be more and more drawn to spending days in Darrington. It makes no sense, I hate run out slab climbing, but then I return and do it over and over again.. So many climbs to explore and new things to learn! http://mtnsaremyhome.blogspot.com/ Gear Notes: Draws and a Small Rack Mostly Approach Notes: Drive, Walk, Climb
