  1. NW Face Forbidden - W ridge notch approach

    We climbed the route yesterday by the Boston Glacier approach with a spectacular bivy at the north ridge notch. Getting onto the rock from the higher snow ramp was trivial with no moat or serac shenanigans. Here is a photo of the terrain below the west ridge notch taken from where we gained the rock. It likely would have saved us lots of time but I was glad to have taken the long route just for the incredible bivy. Have fun out there.
  2. Anyone interested in climbing ice/mixed in Banff area, Cody, or Lillooet 1/26-2/2? I’m very familiar w/ the Banff area. Less so w/ Cody and Lilloet though I’ve climbed in both areas. I’m hoping to find a partner w/ a fair amount of winter climbing experience and am happy to discuss mine. I’ve got a Tacoma and a truck camper w/ propane heat that i was planning on using to keep the cost down if the forecast isn’t too cold. I’d be leaving from Seattle. Hit me up.

  5. Alpine rock 8/29-9/1

    partner found
  6. I'm looking for a partner for a trip to the Sierra. I will be traveling from Seattle and would be psyched to roadtrip with someone from the PNW but would also be happy to meet someone down there. My timeframe is 9/5 to 9/17 ish. I am not set on any specific routes but my preference is towards routes in the 5.10 to 12- range or long traverses/ link-ups. Some of my ideas include Evolution or Minaret Traverse, Edge of Time Arete on the Citadel, Bastille Buttress to the summit of Lone Pine Peak, Harding Route on Keeler Needle, anything on the Hulk other than the Red Dihedral, East Face of Aiguille Extra, The Emperor on Bubb's Creek Wall, and Astro Gil on Tehipite Dome. I am also down to spend some time in the valley if the temps are reasonable. I am completely open to other routes and expect to add to this list in the coming week. Hit me up. Cheers.
  7. Alpine rock 8/29-9/1

    Anyone interested in a last minute alpine mission this week (Tue-Fri or some part of that time)? Some ideas include: CHEHALIS (Vienese to Clark Traverse and then Tuning Fork on Bardean), a couple routes on CASTLE PEAK (Harrington-Kearney and Harrington-Hirst), NESAKWATCH SPIRES (Dairyland, Bugaboo Crack, Fairytales and Fantasies), PASAYTEN (various options on Cathedral, Amphitheater, and Deacon), and COLCHUCK BALANCED ROCK (Scoop and Let it Burn). Alternatively, with the right partner I've got some more committing and chossy ideas.
  8. My partner and I are seeking two other climbers to share a helo into the Waddington range around the first two weeks in August. We plan to fly from Tatla Lake into the Tiedemann Glacier with White Saddle Air. The cost of the flight will be 600-700 USD per person w/ a group of 4. If there are any individuals who might be interested we know a 3rd person who would be a strong partner for rock or mixed routes if they can find a partner w/ similar interest in longer technical objectives. Hit me up if you're interested. I was in the range last summer and would love to chat. Cheers.
  9. Pmd about blue, green, yellow aliens
  10. Lost a #3 and #4 last Saturday (6/3). They would either be at the base of the Brett and Scott memorial route or clipped to one of the anchors on that route.... most likely at the top of pitch 2. I would love to swap these for some beer. Thank you.
  11. We found some cams and slings beneath Tatoosh/Thin Fingers on Saturday 7/16. After trying to find the owner we believed that they had already returned to the city. Someone said that the climbers names might be Jeff (Hall?) and Bev (or Beth?) but this might be entirely wrong. If anyone knows climbers that lost gear on 7/16 please pass the word along. c.cox.42@gmail.com
  12. WTB Spantiks 41.5

    Thanks for bringing them to my attention but my partner already found a good deal on a pair of Baruntses in her size.
  13. WTB Spantiks 41.5

    I'd like to find a used pair of 41.5 Spantiks with some life left if anyone has a pair they are looking to sell. Cheers.
