  1. Awesome! Thanks for the work to make this available once again.
  2. Marmot Limelight 2 person Tent w/ footprint $150 This is a killer tent if you just want one thing for car camping and backpacking. Tons of elbow room, comes with a footprint and not super heavy. Brand new with tags, pitched it in the living room and noticed that there weren't any stakes. I have some old MSR stakes laying around that will toss in. I would be happy to keep this tent but I won it in a raffle and just don't need another. More info here https://www.rei.com/product/895809/marmot-limelight-2p-tent-with-footprint OR Winter Deadpoint Jacket - mens small - $40 Nice flannel lined canvas jacket. Wore it around town a couple times, no real wear to note. Like most of OR's casual pieces this guy runs a little big. I'm 5'10 165 lbs and this is a nice trim fit on me. REI Rhyolite rain jacket - mens medium - $80 Nice lightweight eVent shell. Super breathable and packs small. There is one little pinhole nick in the fabric on the lower back. I can snap a photo if you would like. Showers Pass Elite cycling rain shell - men's medium - $60 Killer rainjacket for PNW biking. Huge back vent, pit zips and sleeve openings for maximum airflow. This is the previous generation of the Elite jacket. Photos available here
  3. All items have sold. Thank you.
  4. Local pick up in Olympia, I'll also be bouncing up to Seattle before too long. Otherwise I'm happy to ship at buyers expense. Photos available here Suunto Ambit 2 GPS Watch w/ sapphine crystal face $200 NOW $150 -Barometric altimeter -Compass -Basic GPS navigation -Heart Rate Monitor -Comes with heart rate chest strap, recently replaced watch band and charge cable More info at http://www.suunto.com/en-us/products/sports-watches/suunto-ambit2/suunto-ambit2-sapphire-hr Really cool tool to play around with. You can program in a bunch of different modes and get real time stats on your adventures, knock out some basic GPS navigation and monitor your heart rate. The sapphire crystal face is damn near indestructible, theres a couple scrapes along the bezel but the watch face its self is very clean. Mammut Trion Pro 50+ Backpack - $90 -50 liters, expandable to about 60 -Highly weather resistant, its last trip was a very soggy slog and the contents stayed dry. Bergans of Norway 30L Pack - $25 -Trusty old ski pack. Its decidedly old school and not very light but it'll outlive me I'm sure. Great for a beater ski pack, around town or day hikes. Marmot Softshell - M - $60 NOW $50 -I think this is the previous version of the current ROM jacket -Gore Windstopped in the front and shoulders, breathable material on the back and pits -Picked this up at an REI garage sale, it was returend because "the logo on the arm was peeling off." Didn't end up wearing it much OR Uberlayer Jacket - M - $200 NOW $180 -Polertec Alpha insulation, the latest and greatest in breathable insulation. -Brand spankin' new in the plastic -Retail is $300 I'll also put out some feelers on a Hilleberg Nallo 2 tent. Its in great shape and comes with the optional mesh inner. There's one quarter inch nick in the outer fabric on the vestibule, easily fixed with some seam grip. I was thinking around $650 for the tent and mesh inner (normally $750 + $160). Pictures on request I also have a Hilleberg Unna with mesh inner. Its only ever been on two or three trips. Comes with a footprint and mesh inner. $700 Pictures on request
  5. Well since my backpack was nabbed out of the back of my car today I'm on the hunt for a replacement. I'm looking for a 20ish liter pack that can hold my harness and rack/rope on for the approach and my shoes, water, food and jacket while climbing. I was previously rocking an older model of the Arcteryx Cierzo and it did everything I wanted it to. Is something like the Cilogear 20L Worksack or the updated Cierzo worth the extra bucks over an REI flash pack?
  6. Bindings are claimed. The stove, pad, and jacket are sold. Bindings and bibs are still up for grabs! PM me with any offers.
  7. Located in Olympia, Washington. I can ship at buyer's expense but preference will go to local pickup. I might be up in Seattle during the next day or two and could arrange a pickup. All photos can be found in the album Photos Here Snowpeak Gigapower Stove with titanium pot - $40 Sea to Summit silnylon pack cover. First 30-50 liter packs - $15 Winter Neoair size XL - $40 This is a really great pad. I returned an original neoair on warranty and ended up with this one. It tends to see more use from me as a car camping pad because I really don't need the XL size or extra R-value on most trips. That being said it has kept me toasty warm several times when camping on snow. I can measure dimensions on request. Petzl Vasak with hybrid leverlock attachment system - $75 These guys haven't seen much use. I bought them secondhand before realizing they wouldn't work with my boots. They need a heel welt but no toe welt. From looking at them they've never been filed and certainly have plenty of life left in them. They come with point covers for easy storage. Arcteryx Beta LT half bibs size small/tall - $75 These guys are practically new. I wore them a couple times but there is no noticeable wear. Gore-Tex proshell, full side zippers, super burley instep patches, the works. The small/ tall size is a little wonky. I'm 5'10 and wear a 31 waist in normal pants and they had an decent fit on me. The only place they didn't really fit was the, ahem fly zone. That's more a testament to the fit the pants and not an endorsement of any of my own endowments. This would work really well for a tall and slender lady. Which I am not. BD Alpine Start Hoody size medium - $50 Cool jacket made from Scholler material. I won this guy in a contest, wore it a few times and really liked it but there's just too much overlap in my closet to justify keeping it. Silvretta 404s size K - FREE These were given to me many many years ago and I never put them to use. Size K is intended for pretty small feet, I'm not sure of the exact size. I know its getting harder and harder to track these style of bindings down so if you know someone who can use them then they're all yours. I would ship them for six pack money.
  8. "The window appeared to be best from the 20th of September onwards, with an unusually large high pressure system settling over the area for nearly a week. The 20th would be the last day of winter, and thus my hopes of making ‘winter ascents’ were unlikely to be realized."
  9. Great pictures! I'm curious about the rappels you made to complete your descent. Several weeks ago I climbed up the Backbone and ended up making the descent in the dark. We were expecting a heinous, snowy slide fest but we stumbled upon some rap anchors complete with a 70 meter rope. We pulled up the rope, it looks fine and we ended up rapping off it. Was it still there for your descent? Does anyone know who might have left it or why?
  10. Awesome work! All the terrain in there just begs for big traverses and link ups.
  11. Awesome, I'll go give some of those a try. Thanks for the help!
  12. So I'm in the same boat as Bedellympian but up in Leavenworth at the moment. Anyone got some suggestions for good routes to aid solo to work out all my rookie mistakes on? I realize that the obvious answer is to go to Index but I'm looking for some afterword locations in the Tumwater or Icicle.
  13. Here's a photo from this past Sunday. There is just a little bit of snow travel towards the top. I had an axe for this part as well as some of the snow travel inside the Enchantments basin but plenty of people looked like they were getting by with trekking poles. Someone had suggested snowshoes to us the day before but they never left the pack and we felt fairly silly for bringing them. So bring an axe or trekking pole but no crampons or snowshoes. We did it in approach shoes and got soggy but were happy with our choice. ]http://imgur.com/V2YgC0c
