  1. I found a cell phone down in the grass off the edge of the Railroad Grade Trail coming down from Sandy Camp on the south side of Baker. It was between 10:00 - 11:00 or so on Saturday the 18th. It still worked and had about 30% battery life, so it couldn't have been there for too long. If you think it might be yours, please email me at james(at)alpineinstitute(dot)com with a description to claim it. I will be out of the office the remainder of this week, but I'll be back in at the beginning of next week. Cheers, James
  2. I found a pair of climbing shoes in the scree below Prime Rib on Friday afternoon. Please email me at james(at)alpineinstitute(dot)com with the description (size and style) to claim them.
  3. The American Alpine Institute is running an American Mountain Guides Association Single Pitch Instructor Exam on Saturday, June 21st in Leavenworth. We are currently seeking individuals who would like to play the role of student for the exam candidates on: SATURDAY, JUNE 21, 2014 We are primarily interested in climbers who haven't spent a great deal of time outdoors. The exam candidates will provide a day's worth of climbing instruction to those who are interested under the supervision of an AMGA Certified Rock Guide for FREE. Mock students will work with the guides from approximately 9am to 4pm. If you need to leave early, that's certainly fine. The ideal "mock client" will have rock shoes, a helmet and a harness, though if you don't have one of these things, we may be able to provide it. The American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA) Single Pitch Instructor Course and exam is the first in the AMGA sequence of climbing instructor and guide training programs. The SPI course was designed to help capable recreational climbers transition into capable and effective climbing instructors. The course focuses on the technical skills required by an instructor as they are applied in all forms of single pitch climbing instruction. In addition to this, the course addresses the essential educational and environmental tenets required to teach climbing. Those seeking certification may go on to take a two-day field examination following the course. Certified Single Pitch Instructors are expected to demonstrate the technical and educational proficiencies necessary to instruct a variety of single pitch rock climbing skills in a safe and effective manner to both groups and individuals.

  5. [TR] Black Peak - North East Ridge 7/7/2012

    My girlfriend and I were the party of two you guys met coming down from Wing Lake. Glad to hear we weren't the only ones who had some issues at the TH. We went up the standard route and had a great climb. Encountered a very big and very friendly (a bit too friendly) goat on the way up. I made a 360 degree panorama from the summit - you can check it out here: http://www.360cities.net/image/black-peak-summit#0.00,0.00,54.8
  6. Found a Metolius rope bag on upper Castle Rock in Leavenworth on Monday the 27th. To claim, email me at james8596(at)gmail(dot)com with a color/description and where you left it.
  7. Fusion mods

    I got a helluva deal on a pair of the old Fusions this fall, but I would like to figure out some way to attach some umbilicals at the grip. I got a look at the new Fusions at the Portland Ice Fest a while ago. I thought I might get lucky and be able to swap the endcaps and get the new one with the spike, but BD changed the shape of the core from rectangular to triangular. So has anyone out there done any modding to the old Fusions? Any ideas out there? Thanks
