  1. [TR] Mt. Baker - North Ridge 07/19/2020

    Congrats on ticking this route - I found it to be very enjoyable a perfect length for a full-value big-day out in the mountains. I'm curious about the dog comment ... any pics? Legalities of bringing dogs up there? Thanks!

  15. Partner Needed 26 and/or 27 Jan

    Weather looks less-than-ideal for skiing, so I'm looking for a climbing partner for the weekend: Open to anything, but eyes on something relatively big with favorable weather, albiet a little windy. Stuff in Enchantments, Baker, Shuksan, Hood, Index (?), Pearly Gates (?), Snoqualmie Pass area (NY Gulley, Tooth, Chair, what else?) …. Glacier Peak, in a mega overnight sat-sun trip …. it's probably possible ... I'd prefer to travel on skis, and request the same. If you've got to boot, we can probably make it work depending on the objective. Prefer C2C, but not opposed to an overnight …. Also wiling to go on a big MTB ride … that ride that no one else wants to do …. Thanks, Dave 239-two-three-three-2002

No problems, just don't need them anymore. Scarpa T2 Tele Boots 30.5. $35 Scapa Defender Tele Tech Boots 30.0 / 30.5. $35 Some Big Bros. Can't remember which ones, two total. I've got some Valley Giants so I don't need these guys anymore. Priced to move, make me an offer. Sterling hollow block x 2. Make me an offer, I don't use them because I like the old fashioned cord better. Misc small cordage, lot's of length, priced to move as I don't want to bring it with me. Salomon Rockette Skis. 164cm x 110mm. Bought cheap and never used. $50 priced to move. Nordic Track bike. Electric, plugs into wall. Works. Don't want to bring to Japan. $50. Single Set of BD cams 0.5 - 6. NOT LOOKING TO SELL SEPERATELY. $450 Bikes. I'm trying to figure out what I want to do with my bike situation. 2015 Salsa Spearfish Carbon. $2000. 100mm front and 80mm rear - perfect XC and I've done a lot of the bigger, longer trails in the PNW. Front and rear shocks recently fully serviced (LIKE NEW). Converted to tubeless with new tires. Custom frame pack. Testing the waters to see if I can recoup enough to get a bigger travel 29er. 2017 Salsa Warbird Carbon Brooks LE. $2000. Great all-condition commuter and cross bike. Tubless, frame pack and seat pack. Just don't ride enough and I think I can get away commuting with a longer travel full suspension bike than the Spearfish while in Japan. I'd rather dump both bikes and get a SICK fast endure bike.

  18. partner wanted 16-18 (19) Nov

    surprise weekend available from work. might have Monday off too. obviously want to get something big. c2c or overnight, both are fine. temps look good, wind looks manageable up high. I've got some ideas, and definitely open for yours. game for rock, alpine, skiing, or MTB. thanks! dave 239-two-three-three-2002
  19. What bindings are people rocking right now?

    I quiver killer all my skis. they're a stronger attachment, but also make it dangerously easy to add skis and/or bindings to the stable. example: dps skis with g3 touring or kingpin resort bindings. same or different boots. original plan was to balance tech and tele. tele is all but out, but getting the right tech binding is nice. adding skis now only costs the off-season discount and no need for more than one binding; and I always have the best ski for the conditions.

  22. Trip: Johannesburg - NE Rib 1957 Trip Date: 13-14 October 2018 Trip Report: started 715 Sat AM from the parking lot. took the lowest start posible, scrambling a few hundred feet before a 100m roped pitch into the trees. lots of unroped climbing before realizing we were too far right. we did another roped pitch thinking we'd be out - wrong. a single 30m rappel down and skiers right put us back in business. a long stretch of unroped climbing into a gullet. roped back up for a few of the moves and that deposited up on the main ridge's shoulder. this was the large climbers right trend in the topos. lots of steep vegetated climbing and steep exposed climbing brought us to a short (10m) knife edge ridge crossing - officially out of the shit. this is where you could drop into the gulley to climb up to the bivy or stay on the rope. gulley obviously looked nasty in October. we scrambled another short distance to where we needed a rope. either the ugly offwidth or the steep face up and right. not entirely sure if the face is what others had chosen, but it's what we opted for. it was a little hard down low, but opened up nicely. we hauled packs on this particular pitch. from that beltway we were a 150m pitch then a 45m pitch to the bivy site. arrived around 530pm - just under 10 hrs on the route. no running water for us, so we went ultraconservative with fuel only melting water and saving some fuel just in case. we were treated with an awesome sunset and sunrise. we were nestled between the snow and the rock and stayed protected from the wind. next morning we were moving by 745am and summited around 920am. glacier was very simple all things considered. snow arete was very cool and truly unique. started to descent around 10am, opting to downclimb vs rappel. some serious exposure on sometimes pretty delicate climbing. we were pretty close to the top, only dropping to maybe 100 feet below occasionally and not for very long. we reached the main descent around noon. on the main descent we made one anchor for a belayed downclimb relatively high up, then lots of downclimbing snow and rock until an obvious rappel station. this was a real rope stretcher (full 30m) to a subtle ledge skiers left of running water, we loaded about 1.5 liters knowing we'd get more soon - it was euphoric to get nice cold water. more snow and rock brought us to a second obvious station, going skiers left. another 30m with some downclimbing and we were onto a broad apron. traversing skiers left, going more directly to C-J Col, we found three more rap stations, plus a lot of downclimbing. we reached the col around 230pm. we were moving quite slow. after quickly adjusting layers we were off to Doug's direct and searching for water. we were at the top around 5pm and made fast work down to the 6k foot level. here is where were made our only route finding mistakes: dropping too low too early twice. this cost us probably a at least an hour. we then got back on track and were to cascade pass by 8pm and the TH by 930pm. all in all, full value route that was surprisingly straightforward. I'd do it again. Gear Notes: single rack to 3in was nice to have, 60m rope was shortest we would have wanted Approach Notes: short, or long, depending on your perspective
  23. Need ice tool suggestions for harder routes

    Something can really be said for the right tool for the conditions, and the comfort / speed added in semi- or fully-technical terrain vs. the speed lost in non-technical by carrying two tools AND a non-technical long axe. Sure you can climb North Ridge or Coleman Headwall on Baker w/o two technical tools, but you'll be a lot slower through the technical terrain, and may struggle to even make it up. This could significantly lower the overall safety of the party. I have never regretted carrying two technical tools, even when not truly needed because of the speed and security added when I did need them, even for a short time. A fully functional, non-technical axe also makes travel through the remainder of the terrain safe and fast without needing to utilize a tool where it does not belong. Are you any slower carrying three tools/axes - not really; do you ensure you have the right tool for the job, ensuring confidence and speed and therefore safety - yes. North Ridge, Liberty Ridge, Coleman Headwall (some examples above) - I would whole-heartedly recommend two tools and an axe, you never know what you might have to climb through. I have not done Leutholds or DKH, so cannot comment at all (except Leutholds is a relatively benign ski descent, I think ...). I am not advocating two tools on everything, but simply giving another perspective that has worked well for me.
  24. Looking to get out this weekend and have a few ideas, but open to anything: 1. Trail running the Wonderland in a single push. My wife can provide support at the road intersections. 2. Prusik. C2C or overnight, open to either. 3. Washington Pass. May be too cold. 4. Rainier. Nisqually or Mowich: something off the beaten path. 5. Baker. Coleman Headwall. 6. Shuksan. North Face. 7. Index. 8. Darrington. 9. Skiing ... anything? 10. Another long distance, semi-crazy trail run? 11. Any long distance (30+ miles) mountain biking... Let me know if your interested and let's do it! Thanks!
