  4. Sapphari, Thanks for the nice pic! I'll use that for my July 4th attempt. BTW, looking for a 3rd member of the team...Please let me know how the route is after your climb. Matt absinthe52@hotmail.com
  5. Hey there, My wife and I will be attempting either the Kautz or Gibralter Ledges. We get in on the 8th and plan on climbing the next 4 days. We are both from CO and have experience in winter climbs. Planning on doing Torment/Forbidden after that. 1st time to Ranier, attempted Shasta last year. E-mail me if interested in meeting up. We are both cool. absinthe52@hotmail.com Matt
  6. Hey there, I thought I was set on hitting up Gibralter Ledges next May. Though now, I've seen trip reports to Forbidden peak and I'd like to get in some good alpine rock climbing as well. I will be out for about 10 days this spring. Question is, is June too late for Gib Ledges (usually)? Book says no, but I would like some of your opinions. Also, I'd like to do some alpine rock as well, but I'd like to avoid the crowds that come in July and August (Rainier included). Any suggestions/advice are welcome. I'd like to keep the trip between April-mid June of possible. Thanks, Matt
