  1. What do you think the chances are the insurance company will accept this crappy cell phone photo I took a while ago of something in my house, capturing guidebook shelves in the background? Can't say I'm not trying!
  2. Thanks for the amazon tip, will sit back and see if the seller adds more books.
  3. Thanks olyclimber, hopefully they turn up. Used books stores haven't seen them yet.
  4. Hi all, I am currently on a month long honeymoon/climbing road trip (lucky right?) and my messenger bag was stolen out of my car (along with cash, and a few other odds and ends) while it was parked right in front of Pike's Place market. Inside of it were the following guidebooks: Squamish Select 1st Edition Squamish Select 2012 Edition Cascades Rock by Blake Herrington WA Pass Supertopo Smith Rock State Park guidebook Bugaboos Guide by Atkinson/Piche Alpine Select: Climbs in SW BC by Kevin McLane Frenchman Coulee Sky Valley Rock Supertopo: High Sierra/Yosemite/Tuolumne Free Climbs Along with the books, a Suunto watch, some julbo sunglasses, a petzl headlamp, and a few charging cables are gone. I don't really need the pens or chapstick back. Some of those books you might notice as being rare/out of print/quite valuable. If anyone happens to notice a bulk of guidebook being sold on craigslist or elsewhere, it would be awesome if you could contact me. From looking around the 'crime scene,' and talking to folks, we found the messenger bag and some of my business cards, but no guidebooks. It's a real bummer, because the thief likely was hoping it was heavy, full of laptop/electronics. Instead it was full of my treasured guidebooks that for many of them even the asking price can't replace. So, any information you may have, I really appreciate it. I am checking craigslist and have contacted some used gear stores. Not that it is important but because this is the internet - yes my car was locked, it appeared clear and empty, my windows are dark tinted, and they did not break the glass but forced the door open somehow. My truck is 1999 and has manual door locks. Thanks, Andrew
  5. Nice Ivan - good tour of some of the classics and shenanigans.
  6. All of the routes suggested (save for the ones on solar slab wall) will be in the shade. Anything in the Black Velvet or Dark Shadows area will be full shade all day. Depending on the weather, this will either be appreciated or cursed. Tunnel Vision is a route I usually chose to do in the middle of early fall/late spring heat, same with Frogland, Dark Shadows, Epinephrine, Dream of Wild Turkeys, etc. Check out Rainbow Buttress, 5.8+. Only 8 pitches but a long walk, which should keep the crowds down. Also a super long and involved decent if you walk it off completely, otherwise do Sunspot Ridge first to figure out the Black Orpheus descent, and then do the chicken lips descent off of Rainbow Buttress, which connects into the Black Orpheus descent. Also Sunspot Ridge that I suggested shouldn't be crowded, I doubt it gets climbed more than 10 times a year. Crimson Chrysalis is also in the shade, and will be nuts crowded. Nearby is Ginger Cracks and while it goes a grade harder 5.9, it is a much more fun climb, with less bolts, and less people, will get a little bit of sun and with a more interesting descent that isn't directly back down the route. You'll rappel Power Failure, which goes at .10c, and you can set up a TR on the first or second pitch for some more fun as you rap if you're interested. I'll keep thinking. Oh - Birdland is a super popular 5.7+ish route that gets full sun. Right next to it is Rawlpindi, which can be climbing to The Big Horn. The Big Horn is an awesome crack, and everyone on Birdland will look at you and think you're rad for climbing a different route that is super cool. You'll be happy that you're the only one on that route, and enjoying a fun crack. As with all these routes, read the comments on the Mountain Project to get up to date anchor/descent information.
  7. $200 incl. shipping obo This Snowboard is Brand NEW and has never been used. Below is the information from the manufacturer: "You’ll be begging for your next hit. Highly addictive, the Fix™ becomes the life of the party with Burton's latest rocker design. Concentrating control between your feet while lifting the tip and tail, P-Rocker creates a highly forgiving board that’s super easy to press and manipulate.

  8. I am a huge fan of my Petzl Tikka XP2 Core. It comes with a rechargeable and programmable battery pack. Every time I go out, I leave with a full battery and it lasts extremely well. I could even take extra AAA batteries and still put those in by removing the rechargeable core in the field (very easy). For what it is worth, I'm a fan.
  9. The Fiveten grandstone is a beautiful shoe. I love mine.
  10. Jug back up the rope, try again?
  11. Thanks Off White, I believe I sent Matt an email, but I'll look up the other guys too.
  12. Whats the word (meaning ethic, acceptableness, etc.) of re-bolting or equipping new routes/additional pitches to existing routes? I would really be interested in investing some time and effort into Darrington, but don't want to rock any boats. I would love to be able to do this in the same ethic that is currently being used. Any information helps, thanks!
