  1. Hey Guys, I am cleaning the gear closet and I have a couple season used Metolius boldering pad for sale. Caveats- it does have one hole on the inside of the pad, which should not be a problem for performance of the pad. $50 OBO

  3. Hey All, I have a brand new pair of Black Diamond Current Skis still in the plastic, never been used that I am looking to sell. Never ended up needing them. They are 176cm long (188/86/106). Looking to sell these bad boys for $200. Great light weight ski for touring! -Alex
  4. Hey Everyone, I climbed the beckey route on Sunday 9/28/14 and got a rope snagged on the rappel into the gully. It was late so the decision was made to leave the rope. If someone is so kind enough and is rapping the route in the near future could the rope be returned to me? It is a blue rope snagged about 10-20m below the rap station. Beers and gifts for the returned rope! Please PM me to contact me in Seattle.

    Sick dudes!! Looks like you had a great day out there
  8. Trip: Colchuck Balance Rock - Leche la Vaca- 5.10 Date: 5/19/2013 Trip Report: Decided to make a trip up to check out the Balanced rock for the first time with Logan. Had some difficulty finding the true starting point, using the pics posted on mountain project of the route (hopefully can get back up there soon with my DSLR to take some high res shots). Started the 5.8 pitch just slightly up and lookers right of the large tree oasis at the base. Uncertain if I was on route but made a short pitch up to the tree belay ledge below the flake on the second pitch. Logan led the second pitch through the flake and the rope became severely stuck within the flake. Double ropes would have been benifical. The flake contained tons of moss and was fairly wet. Ice drips were found all through this pitch on some crucial knobs. Some sections of the route were covered in lichen as well. In the final 4th class scramble to the top, large snow patches were encountered and some ice. Topped out only to be socked in by clouds. Tons of fun, 4th pitch totally rocked with awesome knobs and some bouldery moves. video and pics to come Gear Notes: We brought too much, only need a double rack and some nuts. C3s and C4s. #4 is useful for one placement. Double ropes would help with rope drag. Approach Notes: No snow until a mile before Colchuck lake. Still tons of snow around the lake. Walked the circumference of the lake to Asgard pass and climbed the upper most gully, which allowed us to drop down to the right side of Colchuck Balance Rock. Snow was firm in the morning for the approach.
  9. South and Middle Sister AT ski season?

    Any current beta after the 10th, is there still a decent snowpack?
  10. Thanks, thought it would be something like that. Just wanted to make sure.

  12. PT recommendations

    Hey guys, I recently broke my back about 12 weeks ago from a skiing accident. I was just cleared by my Doctor yesterday to begin Physical Therapy. I wanted to know if anyone has had some great experience with a particular PT in terms of getting them back into climbing and skiing shape. Thanks for your suggestions!
