  1. In the mid 90's me and a partner tried unsuccessfully climbing the NE ridge in winter, with Marko and my brother making it aprox 2/3's up before bailing. I agree that in the summer it doesn't catch your imagination but during the winter, especially from the access road it's pretty impressive looking. Although in late September 2001 we did do a summer route that was left of the large ledge below the east face starting with a 5.7/8 twin cracks on a slabby face. It was long(we summited at dark IV 5.8). the climbing was pretty good and brush free. I believe was part of the established route there but I thik we did some variations. I'd recommend it. The above comment by Rad..... "plus the fact that if you trundled things off the face they could easily hit people on the trail." sums up the rape bolting/route setting generation. different times. Marko and partner also "almost" completed a winter route on one of the North face gullies( I guess kinda insecure/scary?)

    Whenever I have been on the mountain loop highway in winter it has been gated a little before Big 4 and you'd have to snowmobile or ski big miles. Is now different? global warming? or am I missing something? Looks like fun and hope you guys finish it.

    Isn't the photo's saying pitch 12 and 13 the same photo area? looking in reverse?
  4. Unrepeated routes in N Cascades (winter type)

    Or does anone do the various Doorish routes on Garfield main? or do 99% head for the formidable IB?
  5. Oh and if anyone finds a walkman with an ac/dc tape in it, on the west side of Kalenteen peaks north ridge(narrow section) please let me know
  6. Unrepeated routes in N Cascades (winter type)

    Please!! how about sombody repeating the North Norweigen Buttress route? 1985 it was put up! If that was in french alps it would been done dozens of times. I say this sitting at my comfy desk in my warm room. Or do the FWA of it?
  7. Tried getting in there in winter some years ago and following Beckeys approach just got frustrated and gave up. seems like a cool area. cool tr
  8. VERY COOL! And yeah what a detailed trip report that will help future parties for sure
  9. And G-spotter, I am not canadian, I live here
  10. well congradulations, youve changed over a hundred years of first ascenting styles in the cascades. hope it ends here.
  11. Always wanted to try something similar, until I didnt. When looking at it on the map it looks like the perfect loop with potential to bag many peaks and log many miles. great job. you think it might still need some tweeking? (starting or ending it) I was looking to end it near the william spires to finish
  12. photo of a line done left of the original ne ridge route. this pitch was one of the best of its grade (5.8) ive ever done
  13. Does the route intentionally go right on the tree ramp or more strait up? Isnt the route graded 5.6ish? or 5.8? J-burg is a big mountain for sure.
