  1. Anyone out there willing to take a new guy on? I've done climbing off and on, but due to large gaps in climbing periods, I haven't developed all the necessary skills. I'm in a good shape and a fast learner. Looking for someone in the Skagit County/Whidbey Island area. Outdoor climbing is preferred, but just a belay partner at the gym is good too. Just looking for someone to split some costs with and learn a thing or two from.

  3. I am taking a mountaineering course coming up in May and ends with climbing Mt. Baker in the beginning of June. I am new to the high altitude summit world and am trying to find the best way to outfit myself for the journey. I'm trying to get a good amount of gear used or on sale, but I will fork over some money for good gear. Can anyone give my some guidance on what to bring/what type gear to have. Any advice on the following items would be great:


    --Boots and gaiters (type, brand etc)

    --Warm synthetic/down jacket and pants

    --Day pack/overnight pack

    --Sleeping bag (degree?) and sleeping pad


    --belay/rappel device

    --Rescue Pulley

    --ice ax


    --And anyother advice for clothing and layering


    If anyone has any gear, I would be happy to take it off your hands for a reasonable price. Thanks in advance!
