  1. Selling a few things! Its time to cut down a bit, hopefully someone else can put some of this stuff to use. Patagonia Ascensionist 45L Pack - $80 White and Blue, and does not come with the internal frame (I got rid of that thing the first day). It has a few holes and some wear, but is still in great functional condition. Patagonia Leashless Goretex Jacket - $100 Size Small. Dark Blue with red zips. Great shape, hardly ever used it, as it turns out I own way too many goretex jackets Mountain Hardwear Chockstone Pants - $80 Size Small. Dark grey. New condition. Mountain Hardwear Super Chockstone Jacket - $80 Size Medium. Blue. Still has the tag on it! Patagonia DAS Parka - $85 Size Small. Orange. Has seen quite a bit of use and has a few stains to prove it.. but that thing will keep you warm! Arcteryx Alpha SL Pants - $120 Size Large. Given to me by a friend.. but if you notice the sizes of all the rest of my things.. ya I don't wear size Large. Black. Full zip. Stylish. First Ascent Rainier Storm Shell Pants - $80 Size Small. Brand New, with tags. Patagonia R1 Lime Green, Size Small -$40. Seen some use, but still has plenty of life! Black Diamond Induction Soft Shell - $60. Light blue, used it quite a bit but it too has lots of good days in someone else's hands. Black Diamond Beta Mid shelter - $40 Also! A Black Diamond I-tent - $174.99 Used, but bomber!

  2. Climbed Chockstone yesterday. Indeed there is a lot of snow getting up to the main flow, and the approach pitch is quite hollow as someone speculated above. The pitch itself is quite fat down low, but actually gets a little mushy at the top as the snow-ice interface has resulted in poorly formed, rotten ice. It definitely hadn't been climbed since any of the recent snow, as tunneling ensued to get off the climb. I fixed some cordage on the big tree to the right side at the top of the pitch. Get it while the gettin is good.
  3. Hey Andreas, I'd be interested in some ice climbing, and I can lead. There's a bit right now in the Alpental zone, Chockstone falls and a few other flows. I'd also be interested in Skookum. Shoot me a message at 253-736-3674 or on here. For that matter, anyone else that's interested in climbing ice this winter that sees this feel free to message me. I have lots of time and have climbed a bit of ice.
  4. Spring cleaning season. Here's a link to all the photos: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B0M3OUUwkM4BQ19iV0t3V1F4bUk You can also email me at nels0891@gmail.com for interest or more photos. Arcteryx Alpha SL pants, size Large. Given to me by a friend, but they don't fit me. Basically brand new. $175 La Sportiva Spantiks, size 42.5. Very well used, but still have plenty of life left in them. $200 OR Expedition Crocadile Gaiters, size XL, black. Also brand new. $45 Patagonia Super Cell rain jacket, size Small, lime green with blue zippers. Has a few small stains from use, but otherwise a good lightweight goretex rain shell. $100 Black Diamond Induction softshell, size Small, light blue. Great shape still, don't really need it. $100 EB First Ascent Guide Parka, size Small, red. Good puffy for ice climbing or alpine climbing. $150 EB First Ascent wind shell, size small, blue/grey with green zippers. Not sure of the model name, but just a lightweight summer wind layer. $45 EB First Ascent Rainier Storm shell pants, size small. Brand new, never been worn. $150 EB First Ascent Microtherm hooded down sweater, size small, blue. Still in great shape, good for layering. $100 Some items are negotiable, some are less so. Email is best, I'm notorious for forgetting to check CC.com
  5. I have a pair of well used Spantiks, although they're in a 42.5. I don't know if you've spent much time sizing them though, but in my opinion, they run small. I wear baturas in a 42, and I wish that my Spantiks were about a 43 or 43.5...which is why I'm interested in selling. Seems up your alley anyway, shoot me an email if you're interested because I'm notoriously bad at checking this site. nels0891@gmail.com
  6. Last night my car was broken into, and my haul bag containing my rack, rope, harness, helmet, and camera was taken. The contents, more specifically, were: -New green Arcteryx harness -BD cams, doubles from .3-3 and a couple c3s -black BD vector helmet -70m sterling rope, blue -several quickdraws and plenty of alpine draws -Sony camera The theft happened in the U district of Seattle, so it you see it kicking around or hear about a kit of a similar description for sale please let me know. Call/text 253-736-3674 or email nels0891@gmail.com Also, watch yourselves, I wouldn't wish that upon anybody. Thanks people!
  7. Willis Wall would be suicide right now. In case anybody was wondering.
  8. Have a few days off and would love to get on some alpine rock! I work as a climbing guide primarily on Rainier, and have sort of random days off, but I'm flexible with objectives and location within the cascades. All climbs listed I could lead as much or as little as it worked out, but would consider something harder with the right partner. Heres a couple ideas that could make for a good outing: North Ridge of Stuart Backbone Ridge on Dragontail Serpentine Arete on Dragontail Cutthroat Peak South Buttress and other WA Pass shenanigans Torment-Forbidden Traverse etc etc. Hit me with an idea, I just want to get my hands on some rock!
  9. Looking to clear out a few items that I don't use that much or that don't fit well. Reasonable offers will be considered, doesn't hurt to ask! Message me and i'll get you photos. Feathered Friends Frontpoint parka, Size MED - $400 used only a few days on Denali.. Its basically brand new, but I could really use a small instead of a medium. We had such a warm trip last year that I never even put in on for summit day, just for a few chilly mornings. Blue. Black Diamond I-tent - $400 Good condition, retails for a lot more. Great tent for pretty much any weather conditions. Patagonia R1, Lime Green, Size small - $70. Don't wear it with my layer system. Patagonia DAS parka, Orange, Size small - $120. I have similar layers so I don't really wear it. First Ascent Maximus 80L Duffel - $50? Black Diamond Slinger Ice Axe Leash - $10, or maybe just a six pack of beer. I also have a couple packs that don't really get much use anymore, but are well used. Osprey Variant 37 - $50 First Ascent Alchemist - $70
  10. Anybody been into Strobach recently?
  11. Used for one season, which amounted to several trips but did not see too much of a beating. Great condition, please inquire for a photo. $450
  12. you wont find a whole lot in the 10/11- range at riggins as far as i'm concerned. The majority of the limestone here is steep and pumpy routes, particularly in the 12 to 13 range. I've only spent time at the amphitheater, which is pretty highly concentrated with .13's. Personally I wouldn't go unless I was planning on at least climbing like .12's.. thats where the real fun starts at riggins.
  13. Hey Ben, if your still interested I'm looking for a partner still for August. Just out of curiosity, what is your availability looking like for the next few weeks? Also, what is your climbing experience on rainier and elsewhere?
