  1. I am selling a NEW Patagonia women's small Nano-air hoody in color "strait blue." It is too small for me. I tried it on once; the tags are still attached. $160 firm.- Stretchy, breathable fabric combines a plain-weave liner, 60g warm-when-wet synthetic insulation and a weather-shedding ripstop shell with a durable water repellent (DWR)- 60g FullRange® insulation warms and stretches; combined with the shell and lining, this creates excellent mechanical stretch and unprecedented air permeability (40 CFM)- Soft, supple feel and full mechanical stretch allow uninhibited range of motion and an updated, athletic fit over base layers- Articulated patterning and quilting improve shape and durability- Trim, stretchy hood with elastic binding fits snugly, yet also still fits over low-profile helmets- Above-harness handwarmer pockets and smaller chest pocket all close with trim, low-bulk zippers- Center-front zipper has a stormflap and zipper garage for next-to-skin comfort- Dual-adjustable drawcord hem seals in warmth; refined cuffs feature sleek, low-bulk, stretch-knit insetsI bought it on Enwild.com and as they don't have a larger size, and I don't want store credit, it makes more sense for me to see if I can sell it here to recup the cost.I got a free Enwild unisex XS t-shirt with the purchase. If you want it, I will throw that in for free.
  2. Knots

    This caught my eye with the figure eight ..https://www.npr.org/2020/01/02/793050811/a-knotty-problem-solved Advance apologies for how related to climbing this is!
  3. Freshiezzzzz

    This forum needs some ACTION!!! Got lots of freshies around Herman Saddle on Sunday. Headed there after running into a party that triggered a storm slab/partial burial on a steeper slope in Mazama Bowl. Stay safe out there! I know he's on a splitboard, but he's still a good guy: Sweet animation of someone wiping out: Beautiful: Big smiles:
  4. Really glad everyone made it back safe! I appreciate reading your words about maybe getting too bold/just getting lucky. I was curious about this detail, @PorterM"It was a tad techy so I fixed a cordelette as a hand line in a few spots for extra security." Do you mean you soloed up this section first, and fixed that line for your partners?
  5. Trip: Observation Rock easy ice + Flett Glacier skiing - North Face Trip Date: 10/06/2019 Trip Report: This past weekend, Aaron and I had a great trip with amazing weather, excellent conditions, and spectacular views! Spray Park trail On Saturday we set off into Spray Park and then in alternating snow/low clouds and hot sunbreaks we bumbled around looking for a supposed three-sided shelter that the ranger had told me about (not the one near Cat Eye lake and not the one just east of there...) but ended up finding a pretty great spot anyway. Things cleared up by the evening, beautiful sunset! Woke up Sunday morning to two-inch needle ice in the pebbles around our tent, and set off to the base of the north face of Observation Rock. We roped up, Aaron took us up the first third or so of the face (moderately steep snow), leaving two pitches of moderate alpine ice that we pitched out (alongside three pairs of Mountaineers...). Fun stuff! Fun! Photo: Aaron We slogged up to the summit of Observation Rock with Tahoma wearing a lenticular, got our views of the glacier down below we'd be skiing, Baker, Glacier, Stuart, MSH, and the littler ones... Walking up to the summit of Observation Rock Then descended around and east, finally put the skis on our feet, and had lots of glorious wind-packed pow turns! Aaron: "I've seen you excited, but I don't think I've ever seen you *this* excited..." Yahoooooooo! Photo: Aaron Photo: Aaron A spectacular way for Aaron to climb his first ice in Washington and break in his first pair of AT skis and for me to get my 24th month of TAY and lead some ice! Gear Notes: Tools, pons, skis Twin/half ropes, screws Approach Notes: Spray Park trail and onward/upward
  6. Hello, have any of you been up the Fremont route within the last couple of weeks? Looking for any recent info on conditions. Last TR is from early August... Thank you in advance!
  7. Summer skiing

    Suzanna and I visited the Thumbtack patch in the rain on Sunday and had a fun time. It was raining, but at least the snow was suncupped and icy!
  8. It's climbing related

    Kind of begs the question...is it truly even alpine?

  10. @JasonG Definitely one of the most entertaining TRs by you that I've read -- thanks for spending the time on it!! "... a general team mutiny as we all sought the line what was superior to our teammates."
  11. Can't wait for the finished version, @JasonG and @tylerhs01 ☺☺☺ amazing photos no matter who took em...
  12. [TR] Mt Logan - Fremont Glacier 08/04/2019

    Thanks a bunch for the TR, and nice work! Hoping to convince someone to do it with me in a couple weeks, may have to try it solo otherwise... Nice mileage, sounds like my cup of tea!!
  13. Summer skiing

    This forum needs some love! I'm going on Monday to the Russell and Flett on Tahoma for some August turns, who else has been enjoying carrying skis up for twenty summer turns?
  14. Nice TR and photos! Situations like your unplanned bivy are why I carry an InReach -- just to be able to text and say we will be a day or 12 hours late or whatever it is. Glad you guys made your decision to stay put and got home safely!
  15. @tanstaafl I'm always looking for partners...send me a message!
