  1. Fantastic ascent and great photos, John!
  2. Nicely done guys! We were down at Price Lake watching you guys ski it from afar, I believe a “yaaahooooo!” alerted us that you were up there. Was a blast watching from afar. We were not on any sort of flotation and having a miserable time, unfortunately. Oh well, live and learn.
  3. "Wow", is all I seem to be able to get out of my mouth.
  4. Hood Bound - suggestion on lodging nearby?

    Mazama Lodge! Super-cheap: http://www.mazamas.org/your/adventure/starts-here/C184
  5. I'm glad you lugged the extra gear, your photography is great, way to get at it! I'm usually incredibly lazy when it comes time to setup the tent/go to sleep and the camera stays in the back. Thanks for the inspiration!
  6. Great route map and explanation, sounds like you guys got some killer avi skills!
  7. Mt Hood Climbers Guide

    Really looking forward to seeing one of my photos in a guidebook! Breakdown looks excellent, can't wait to get my mitts on this thing!
  8. Great work and photos! I really enjoy how detail-oriented they are!
  9. Recommendations for a camera for climbing

    If you want a good point-and-shoot, I’d get: Canon S105 Or Canon G1x: note, this has a near-DSLR-sized image sensor and image quality, but it’s quite bulky for a point-and-shoot If you want a “tough” point-and-shoot, I’d get this: http://www.dpreview.com/news/2012/05/08/Olympus-Tough-TG1-iHS-rugged-waterproof-shockproof-12MP-compact-camera Why? Much better and faster lens than your average “tough” point-and-shoot (which have horrid optics). Just note that you are definitely sacrificing image quality on the altar of toughness. (read: a non-rugged point-and-shoot in the same price range, like the ones listed above, will give you much better image quality) If you want something in-between a point-and-shoot and a DSLR, I really like this: http://www.dpreview.com/news/2012/04/30/Olympus-OM-D-E-M5-review Why? Awesome build quality: it’s weather-sealed (not that same thing as waterproof, but good enough to protect against splashes/snow/drizzle), you can set it in the snow and not have to worry Awesome image stabilization: works with any lens as it’s built into the camera body Great lens selection: I’d highly recommend getting some fast primes for it, like the Panasonic 20mm f/1.7. Built-in viewfinder: this is a must for me, I hate composing using the screen on the back of the camera, a lot of people could care less about this though. Size: it’s small, much smaller than you probably think. The Sony NEX series are also good (particularly the NEX-7) but the lenses are quite large and they need a more diverse lens selection (not enough fast primes, which are what I like to shoot with) I'm also not a fan of the interface and the lack of external buttons (the NEX-7 is an exception to this) I personally shoot with a bigazz DSLR but I don’t care about the extra clunk/weight, it’s worth it to me and I’m used to sherpa'ing it around by now
  10. Great photos! 3FJ in the snow/winter/early season has been on my list for a while...mainly for the unique photo ops, nicely done!
  11. Pole creek access

    Just called 'em, road is melted out entirely, snow starting at the trailhead.
  12. Reid Headwall - TOnight

    Wish I could go, bring back the beta!
  13. [TR] Mt. Hood - Cooper Spur 4/15/2012

    Awesome photos Water, the light alone has convinced me to try and tag this route before it turns into a rock chute! I have never seen anything like that. I was one of the two dudes that came up the Steel Cliffs, it was good meeting you!
  14. OPB mt Hood special tonight

    I was pretty surprised that they were able to use a decent amount of my photos/videos for the special. (my video skills are "lacking" to put it nicely) I was also pleased with how well put-together it was, I would not have wanted to be the editor in charge of compressing the history and stories of climbing Mt Hood into 30 minutes of time. My only complaint is that I was a little sad when it was over, I wish it were longer.
  15. Cool pic of da dawg routes

    Amazing capture, anyone know where the photographer may have been standing to frame the mountain like this?
