    I've got a brand new protraxion for sale. Old model. $70 shipped from pdx. Any interest!?
  2. Trying to really thin out the gear closet. Nothing is damaged, but most everything has been used at one point or another. I climb at PG a lot, you can come by my place or meet at the gym to take a closer look: Mythos: Used but resoled and not used since resoling $60 size 38.5 Tradmasters: Used but resoled and not used since resoling $50 size 40 Evolv Devy: Used $40 size 41.5 Locking Carabiners: Used $7 each Nonlocking Carabiners: Used $5 each Microtraxion: Used? (looks new) $60 Gemini Pulley: Used $55 Shipping fees will apply unless you can pick up the items in PDX.
  3. Got my first tour on hood checked off yesterday and plan to make this a big season. I don't work much during the winter so I'm trying to spend as much time in the snow as possible. Looking for partners who are preferably available M-F but weekends are okay too. I'm not super interested in roping up, just in getting out to tour and ride the best lines I can get to without extensive amounts of gear. bonus points if you are a snowkiter as well.
  4. I pretty much only climb during the normal work week hours at Planet Granite. If you want to climb let me know! Bryan
  5. Anyone based in Pdx and free the 22nd and 23rd to get out on your splitboard or skis?

    Avy 1

    Anyone taking their avalanche 1 this season? Anyone have experience with pacific alpine guides for that course? I'm looking at taking it at hurricane ridge in the Olympics and see classes available in December and January. Any recommendations based on expected snow pack and learning opportunities for time of year to do it? Thanks!
  7. If you're interested in the cams but no carabiners let me know.
  8. Lots of trad gear to sell again. Snow is coming and the splitboard needs lighter bindings. All of this gear is lightly used, probably less than a year since purchased. I have doubles of most and triples of some. All Black Diamond: C4 1-3 with a biner $51 each C4 .3-.75 with a biner $46 each X4 .2-.3 with a biner $51 each - sold C3 00-1 with a biner $46 each I live in Poulsbo Washington and travel to Portland frequently for the weekends. Let me know if you'd like to do an in person handoff of gear and cash! Bryan
  9. I'm moving up to Poulsbo near the Olympic Peninsula tomorrow. Anyone living nearby that is a climber, biker, splitboard/skitourer, kiteboarder who might want a new partner in the area? Hope to hear from ya, Bryan
  10. I'll join you any time you want a rock partner. My ideal days are lots of 5.10 pitches, trad or sport. I've been climbing as a guide/instructor for about 8 years now, have the amga certs, wfr, and am looking to get to Smith, Leavenworth, and Squamish a lot over the next 6 months. Bryan - Best to reach me by phone/text since I don't check this website too often... 503-593-1626
  11. Anyone interested in an early morning session at Ozone this Friday? I need to be back in town by 4 to pack and leave for Smith... Thanks! Bryan
  12. Any chance I could catch a ride with my bike to Astoria Monday morning the 19th? Thanks! Bryan
  13. Does anyone have recommendations on how to develop avalanche and snow reading skills? I'm studying The Avalanche Handbook by David McClung/Peter Schaerer as well as Staying Alive in Avalanche Terrain by Bruce Tremper. I stay out of avy terrain due to my lack of knowledge but want to be able to work towards some more challenging objectives and feel as though that's not possible until I understand the dangers that snow provide. With each passing day I seem to pick up more knowledge but need some good practical training opportunities. I don't have the money to take the $375 3 day avy course and would prefer to gain the skills without taking that course. Primarily because I have done a ton of trainings/certifications and I often feel as though they barely scratch the surface of what you really need to know. That being said, if people feel as though the AIARE courses are really worth the money, I'm open to hearing that but would also like some other ideas for learning. Thanks!
  14. Well, it's storming! Riding soon I hope.
  15. Anyone local to PDX and interested in carpooling to catch good snow this season?
