  3. Wondering if anyone has been up to the enchantments in the last few days and has any info on conditions. Heading in for a few days next week and looking to climb whatever snow/ice/rock routes that are in good condition. I imagine the n. ridge of stuart still has some snow here and there? Thanks all!
  4. Sherpa glacier decent question

    Great, thanks so much! We'll be coming down Stuart on the N side, whether it is Sherpa Glacier, NW Buttress Rap, etc, since we'll be camping at stuart lake. Curious to see what the conditions are like on the n side this time of year
  5. Sherpa glacier decent question

    Also, looking for the Sherpa descent description by Hirst and Martin but cant find it.
  6. Sherpa glacier decent question

    Is there any detailed information on the northwest direct buttress descent (e.g. number of raps, length, etc.)?

  12. Hi all, Heading up to the Methow next week, Mon-Sun. I will be staying at the hostel in Winthrop and working most mornings, but hoping to get out on some climbs (goat wall, wa pass, etc) in the afternoons. Rock, snow, etc... all good! Might be able to take a day or two off as well. If anyone wants to go out, go ahead and send me an email dkatz12090@gmail.com Thanks! Drew

  14. Thanks so much - Paisano-Burgundy was what I was thinking. Never been up there before, looking forward to it (hopefully it will dry up some!) Thanks for the visual beta - Great photos!
  15. Hey there, looks like a fun day out. Thinking to head up there this week and was wondering if you got a look at any of the rock conditions up there? Did it look like snow had melted off most of the rock faces (north/south sides?), or were there still significant patches of snow? Thanks so much!
  16. Prusik

    Thinking to do an early season climb of the south route on Prusik this weekend. Anyone been above Asgard recently? Would it be a mess to do without skis? What are the chances the the cracks on the south side are relatively dry? Any beta/thoughts would be much appreciated! See you out there this weekend Drew
  17. New to the area and would love to climb at Value Village but can't seem any info on it anywhere? Is there a map, list of climbs? Thanks everyone!

Let me know if you are interested.... Direct message if interested any of the above! Drew
  21. Hi all, Tis the season of clear skies crisp nights, and dry streams. What is the likelihood there will be water below burgundy col this time of year? I've heard rumors of a permanent spring on thr bench somewhere? And what about mt Stuart, n ridge. Any chance that there will be a snow patch around the notch between the lower and upper n ridge? Thanks all! Be sure to get out there before the days get too short! Dres

  23. Hey Oleg, Great photos and an amusing read. Will be headed up to do the FT Traverse next week hopefully. Just wondering if you can comment on conditions, esp. re: torment approach (SW ridge or face). Did you get a peak at any other parts of the ridge, or the West notch ascent/descent of Forbidden? Thanks so much! Drew
