  1. You might be interested in my MSR Fury that's in great shape. https://www.rei.com/product/810195/msr-fury-2-tent I have the original version with the pole sleeves rather than clips, which makes it a bit more sturdy with the tradeoff being more beta intensive to set up (once you have the beta though it's pretty quick and easy - I'll show ya if we can meet up). Message me if you're interested.
  2. C'mon folks! I promise I won't bail on you and I'll even wear some deodorant!
  3. I have now until the 27th to climb and am looking for partners for Squamish and/or Washington pass. 5.10-2.12ish. im in Squamish right now. Shoot me a message if u wanna meet up.
  4. Thanks for the honest writeup. I think anyone who spends enough time in the mountains has a "close call" eventually, whether they realize it or not.
  5. Looking for Squamish and Equinox partners from now until the 15th. Ideally I'd find someone capable of climbing multi pitch 5.11 or 5.12 cragging. Please hit me up! 614 315 6226
  6. I have the next 2 weeks off work and am looking for weekday squamish partners. Ideal partner would keen on early starts and psyched for getting milage on 5.10 multipitch. I've hardly rock climbed since October so my tendons ligaments and technique will need some breaking in. Pretty easy to please so long as you know how to build a bomber anchor and belay and don't take yourself too seriously.
  7. thanks for the TR. I like your honesty and thoughts on staying roped vs taking the rope off. Good food for thought.
  8. Lots of good stuff here to check out.. helps narrow it down. Thanks!
  9. Hey Folks, My original Outdoor Research Alibi and Alpine Alibi gloves were great (climbed well and nearly indestructible) but I'm not impressed by the new Pittards Oiltac Leather after destroying my Alibi's in less than 5 days in the rockies. I'm interested in what folks are using and abusing out there. I understand that even the best glove will be destroyed by handling ropes eventually, but I don't think it's too much to ask for a glove to last more than 5 days of climbing / rappelling. Specifically, I need a lightweight tech glove and midweight insulated ice glove; i'm very happy with my heavy duty belay glove (BD guide). Thanks, Braden
  10. No TR for the Polish Route. In short, we caught it in really good shape but it still proved to be a full-value shakedown for me. As far as keeping the stoke alive, Wayne, here's my take.. After taking some time away from climbing stuff like this I've come to realize that climbing certainly isn't all there is to life; however, adventure, spending time with friends, physical and psychological challenge, being awed by wild places, and especially the perspective an intense experience like Wild Game can shed on ones life are certainly great reasons to get after it. Taking time to think hard about why I climb has been the best thing I've ever done for my stoke. If that doesn't do it for ya, watch this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IjRGHGV_MVI
  11. I did my best to draw Dan and Rolf's line "Buck Shot" accurately in Yellow; Wild Game in Green.
  12. PM me if you're Interested in a lightly used MSR Fury. See here for review and specs: http://www.outdoorgearlab.com/4-Season-Tent-Reviews/MSR-Fury Cheers, Braden
