  1. SOLD

    Thrashed* not trashed. And btw I wasn't trying to make it sound like you were pawning some crap wares. My mistake on the semantics. I'm glad someone got a great deal.
  2. SOLD

    You said all but new. I took that as being thrashed. All but used would be more accurate imo
  3. SOLD

  4. glacier peak, wa

    I would say to get the green trails map of the area. You probably know that its the most inaccessible major peak in the US cascades. I think I saw a trip report done on the Teton Gravity forums. 18 miles of approach =)
  5. dunno - i like to be lost and so never seem to have a guidebook - thought that was the tombstone crack that abraxas went to at the end of p3? we rapped where there was a good anchor and everythign above was chossy easiness to the false summit, from which you look to do a rope-lenght of traversing, then some down and back up to the true top. i'll be back soon enough i bet, fucking beaconben is drawn to this thing like flies 2 shit! Sounds like you made the tombstone crack. Heard its something amazing. I've hiked up the backside and to the true summit a while ago but will be making it via Abraxas one of these days with some Germans. Couldn't find the top anchor but I have a feeling I was close.
  6. Ivan - sounds like you found yourself all the way up Abraxas but didn't hit the Tombstone Wall. Is that right? Great TR('s)! Gotta love the gas every 30 seconds like you said. I know about this too and it never seems to happen unless I'm up some mountain in a tent with others freezing my butt off. TA
  7. Adidas Buys 5.10

    That was incredible!!
  8. glacier peak, wa

    I was pretty close to it this summer? What do you need to know?
  9. It sure is, Ivan! Check this out...
  10. I did this exact trip Labor Day weekend..... 3 nights.... I took 5 others with me and told them it was 35 miles so they wouldn't freak out. We did it in the opposite direction. You're nuts though. Getting all that done in 13 hours is hard for me to imagine! Absolute ballsy. Hats off
  11. WTB: DAS or Dually Belay Jacket

    Mike04 has a med DAS for sale if you haven't seen it yet. $95
  12. Cooper Spur?

    Thanks for the photos, Holk.
  13. If anyone has this boot laying around I'd be interested in taking it from you for a decent price depending on the condition/wear. Salomon Thermic Pro in size 10 prefered but 10.5 may work as well. Cheers Jared PS If anyone has any advice on warm boots for wide feet besides blowing out plastics let me know in a PM or just post here to grow the public knowledge base.
  14. wanted: 90-110 liter pack

    I think I've seen a Arcteryx Bora 90 on here a while ago. Pretty good deal too... check the last couple months. I'm pretty sure it hasn't been sold yet.
  15. Mt Hood this weekend?

    If you go the south side route roping up is only needed on the old chute. And thats not going to be needed there unless you are with people that need it for mental security. Rope just creates more trouble in those situations where its not needed. Good place to practice though cause other dangers are minimal and you can get used to having another guy on your line. Climb safe, Have fun
  16. Double boots?

    I just read your Double Boots article and thought I saw 17 degrees Kelvin......! "(no one else summited that week either btw) My feet getting cold were just the first sign of that cold. That and a thermometer that bottomed out during the night at 17K." Great read! I have to ask though, what are your thoughts on the Lowa Civetta Extremes?
  17. Jefferson!!!???

    Not sure what its like right now... should throw this topic on the oregon cascades thread. FYI Jefferson is an interesting climb late season. The glaciers are all exposed and the snow is very soft. Pickets may not even work. Kick huge steps with your crampons and make sure to be on/off the summit before 10am and thus off the sketch snow by 11 (b/c of sun). The snow is the reason for this. Its so soft and many aspects are 60+ degrees. Depending on the ridge, expect the standard scree soup/ash mix that makes the treadmill experience that much more amazing. Cheers
  18. Gear sale

  20. WTB: Pitons

    If anyone has some old knifeblades, bugaboos, or bd angle pitons they'd like to get rid of send me a pm. Need a larger rack to finish a fairly large project where the overhanging crack size doesn't vary much at all . Sketch? Yes. Need more pitons? Yes.
  21. WTB: Pitons

    Angles are just another item I'd be interested in getting a few more of.
  22. rope lost in aggro gully
