  1. My wife had a problem with her ankle after an accident and went to see him. He did some surgery and things are good now! She now works at the clinic he's at and he's comes highly recommended. She's picky as heck about her doctors, so that's saying something.


  2. You could get *really* lucky and get stuck at Muir with a group that hauls up a keg of beer. That's how one crew passed the time up there last weekend. Fortunately, someone remembered the tap.

     

    Are we talking full keg or one of the smaller ones? I can remember working in a restaurant and TRYING to move both sizes (ok, I WAS 16). What does one of those suckers weigh?


  3. BTW, on a totally separate note does anybody know any guide service does a 2 dayer on Suhksan sulphide... I saw a group doing a course up there when I went for a solo walk upto the base of sulphide a few weeks back, but I can't seem to find anything other that a 4-5 day that must be fisher chimneys

     

    RMI does some Sulphide Shuksan. I think they do a 3-4, but the first few days are the "how not to kill yourself" days.


  4. NOAA is calling for more snow over the next few days. We went up on Thursday and were postholing up to our knees, getting worse as we went. We saw avvy sign near Hot Rocks. Keep an eye on the forecast and snow levels. At this rate, Hood may be in for quite a while :)


  5. We made an attempt yesterday. Got up just before Hot Rocks and finally called it. We'd post-holed in 0 visibility for hours and were exhausted. Hard crusty snow, low visibility. Our water bottles froze with the wind chill.

     

    Did see some avvy sign near Hot Rocks and beyond.

     

    Gonna try again sometime, hopefully when things settle out!


  6. Anyone have any first hand conditions on Hood? Leaving this afternoon to do Leuthold Wednesday.

     

    We've talked about doing Leuthold, but we're going to probably just do standard route before Memorial Day rush.

     

    Be interested to hear what Leuthold is like right now.
