  1. Thx Jason. I'm surprised that there isn't more beta on this route. It looks awesome...in a picture...from a distance. LOL Cheers!
  2. [img:center]http://www.pbase.com/nolock/image/57591368[/img] Triple Couloirs route is the zig zag route following the obvious couloirs on the right side in this picture. Anyone know what route is left of the buttress...the long couloir left hand side of this picture? Thanks in advance. Dustin
  3. Yep yep... lookin like the Junkyards indeed. I'll be making the journey Northward next month!
  4. Trip: Newberry Crater - Paulina Falls - Main Falls Date: 1/1/2013 Trip Report: Here's another look at Paulina & current conditions. This was my first time ice climbing in central Oregon. Woot! My partner & I had a great time doing laps on the left side of the main falls. We climbed this formation in 3 different lines. The ice is plenty thick on the left & gets very thin toward the center. We also discovered a cool cave behind the falls. I wish I would have taken a picture from further back; so you could see the whole thing... I hope you enjoy what I did manage to capture. Cheers! Climbers left side falls: looking a bit thin on the sides! We didn't climb there. Climbers right side falls (main falls). There's more to the right out of the picture. Cave behind main falls. Gear Notes: We TR'd using trees above the falls. Bring long webbing/cord if you plan to do this (40-50 ft for each tree you want to use). Approach Notes: Park at 10 mile & cruise the snowmobile trail for about 2 miles to the overlook.
  5. Nice job on Thielsen. I tried twice last winter, but got blown off both times. Your pictures have got me thinking about a third attempt... Cheers!
  6. Nice job! You inspired me to look at this route a little closer... so close that I may have to get up under it when I'm on Hood next weekend (providing weather & conditions permit). Cheers
  7. Congrats Bill! My friends & I will each be buying a copy on launch. Cheers
  8. Yes, a session at Big Sky sounds good to me. But my climbing partner does not ski or ride... so the trip is indeed ice only! We are definitely juiced about the trip. We are driving the 750 miles right after I get off of work (hopefully straight through); so that we arrive early the next morning... so that we can climb the first day we are in town. YEAH We'll climb all day, hike out in the dark, have some beers over dinner, & sleep. Day 2,3, & 4 should be a repeat of day 1. Day 5 climb til noon if possible & back to the car for the 750 mile commute back to home... smash n grab style! Best part of the entire "All Climbing Trip - All The Time" : my partner is my wife!
  9. I appreciate the feedback everyone. By "sweet" hookup, I meant to say that i have a friend who can get me a room for my entire stay for FREE. If it's likely a 2 hour drive each way, I don't think I'm down for that... unless of course the climbing in the BS area is worth staying in that area. I've got the appropriate climbing guidebooks, but haven't done my homework yet. Since this is my first ice climbing trip to MT, I figured I would be happy exploring Hyalite alone. Thanks again for the travel beta! Dustin
  10. I'm heading to Hyalite for the first time this coming Feb. I have a sweet hookup at Big Sky Resort. To those that have made the trip before me; should I shell out the cash to stay in Bozeman or take the free ride at the Resort? I've never been in the area, so I don't know how much of a hassle it would be to commute every day... Thanks in advance! Dustin
  11. These are the newer stainless steel version. Mine are like-new still in the box. I used them 3 times. $125 shipped to you! http://cascadeclimbers.com/plab/data/516/medium/DSC04845.JPG http://cascadeclimbers.com/plab/data/516/medium/DSC04847.JPG http://cascadeclimbers.com/plab/data/516/medium/DSC04846.JPG
  12. If you are still looking, I have a pair of MSR Lightning Ascent (30 in.) for sale. I've had them for 2 years; maybe a dozen outings on them. They are in excellent condition. Dustin
  13. Would someone mind linking me a previous post / beta on the route variations mentioned earlier in this post (a reference to 14a & 14b). I am researching the route & would appreciate the beta. Thank you
