  1. [TR] Hope BC - Cruel Pools 02/09/2019

    We were vaguely aware of a walk off climbers' right, it did look somewhat improbable due to the steep canyon sides and bushwacky forest on the horizon... good to hear that it goes, sounds like a viable alternative to finagling rappel anchors and downclimbing.
  2. I've wondered about the holes in my circa 2010 smartwool base layers, also considered some kind of critter was responsible in some way. Sounds like it could be just normal planned obsolescence for these things. Still useable but getting a bit long in the tooth. Definitely always air dry these things as well. The icebreaker stuff I have is not holding up nearly as well.
  3. Looking for an ice climbing partner for lowland ice near Hope BC this weekend. I would be driving from Bellingham and could carpool from there. Looking to lead or swing leads on the longer wi2-wi3 routes that are confirmed to be in shape right now and at least through this weekend. They didn't come into shape last year and won't be here for long! Email is best to communicate and my username, manninjo, is the address at the email service provider @gmail.com Cheers, Joe
  4. Trip: Colchuck Lake - Ice/Dragontail + Colchuck conditions Trip Date: 02/11/2018 Trip Report: Went up to Colchuck lake on Saturday thinking there may have been enough melt freeze lately to make ice fat on Dragontail, probably still too early this year. Some ice on the northern aspects but looked pretty spicy through zoomed in views. We climbed a neat consolation ice line on the lower flanks of Colchuck Balanced Rock and enjoyed the sunny and windless alpine ambience instead. Skinning the road required a fair bit of walking but booting up the summer trail was easy with a snowshoe track packed down. Nice and consolidated snowpack made for easy traveling. I feel like alpine climbing in the Cascades you can have good ice, good snow, or good weather. Oftentimes you can choose one. Getting two or three to align is elusive, rewarding when it happens though. Here are some conditions photos from February 10+11 of Triple Couloirs, Gerber-Sink, and an ice flow coming down the lower flanks of CBR with some vintage tat at the top. Gear Notes: Cascade winter grab bag. Two ropes would be nice Approach Notes: From Icicle Creek
  5. Sent you a PM about the tech bindings, thanks.
  6. New forum software!

    Thank you for the system update, it looks like a big improvement over the ubb software! I went to message someone privately regarding an item on the yardsale, and it said my message inbox was full. If I go to my profile, I do not see an inbox anywhere or place to delete messages... is there something I am missing here?

  8. Plan to keep the filthy casuals out of MRNP

    Public comment on the proposed fee increase is open until November 23 - please let the NPS know how you feel if this increase doesn't jive. https://parkplanning.nps.gov/document.cfm?parkID=442&projectID=75576&documentID=83652
  9. I've just been to the Bend and Royal Columns separately, but it looks like a trail connects the two crags on the side of the river across from the road. Is walking between the crags something people do? Does one risk getting shot by a hunter if they were walking around between the two crags out there? Wondering in case of carpool situation in which some prefer one crag over the other. Looks like a mile or less flat walking on the map.
  10. Bring out the gold stars for this trip report! Bravo sir.
