  1. Going to be up in PNW in a few weeks. Looking for somewhere to Rouge camp near sno park trsilhead. If I show up in the evening and bivy in the parking lot, will anyone hassle me? Any better options to camp near by? Dirt road, picnic area, etc. A bathroom would be nice but not necessary. Thanks for suggestions/ info. Also, snowshoes advised this time of year????

  3. Interior guy lines?

    Thats what I thought they are for. None of the literature for my tents mentions anything about it. Just wonder if there is a certain way to rig it or what.
  4. Interior guy lines?

    I own several tents, Rei mountain 2, black diamond first light, etc. They all have multiple interior attachment points. I know some of the attachment points are for accessories like a gear loft. What is the purpose of all the other interior attachment points in tents? I thought I read something about interior guy lines, or cord ran between these to give the tent more strength in high winds??? Any info???? Is that what these points are for?
  5. Have to go to a wedding at Timberline Lodge in mid November. Should have 1 full day free to climb something. Hood is the obvious choice, but that time of year conditions could be poor. I am bringing my gear and will see how the weather and conditions go but looking for suggestions for that time of year.
  6. Is there anywhere near Paradise or Ashford that has public showers?
  7. Gear distribution- 4 man rope team

    Thanks for the info everyone. Looking forward to experimenting with anchors once we get some snow. Thanks for the link Mike, I was browsing videos on that channel and got an excellent review of and the .
  8. I have been learning and practicing crevasse rescue in my garage and plan to get out and work on anchors once we get some snow here in California. I am planning a trip to Rainier next year and have been thinking about how much and what gear to bring for crevasse rescue if traveling in a 4 man team. I am thinking each person would have 1 pulley, foot, waist and extra prusik, 2 locking biners and 3 wire gate ovals, belay device and a runner or 2. My main question is about how many pickets to carry. One each seems like a lot for a four man team. I was thinking about bringing 2, carried by the 2nd and 3rd. Any opinions on how to distribute gear for travel on a glacier with 4 people? Any other suggestion or tips?
