  1. Kautz Glacier question

    Dig high camp in at 11,000' and you should be sheltered from the icefall. Also a good camp at 13,000' after the little bit of technical climbing. Realistically, the Kautz can be done in a single push if you're fit and acclimatized. If not, then it's a 2 day climb. Descending the route only makes sense to me if you're going to spend an extra night at high camp after summitting on a three or four day climb. Otherwise, going lighter, moving faster, and carrying over to the DC is a simple descent.

    Almost forgot, this comes with 2 picks: an all mountain and a tech pick. Both new.

    Any suggestions here? I'll need a dog sitter all of June and half of July, and a few good chunks of time through August and the end of this month. Will compensate well for good care.

  7. Low Snow Year: Dog Route and Tech Route Timing?

    Any further thoughts on techy routes (Liberty or Ptarmigan Ridge, or the North Ridge of Baker)? I have time available in late June/ early July, but will this be too late this year?

    I'm sure there are a million threads about this already;I can't figure out how to search this forum.. Considering a trip in a few weeks as this route as one objective. I can find several trip accounts and a bunch of photos, buy not a good route description. The one on MP is terrible. I'd be flying solo, most likely a one day push. Also looking for steeper options in the area, this would be the warm-up. Comfortable ropeless up to NEI 5. Chris
