  1. Spent this weekend climbing Vesper & Sperry Peak. Some snow left and an ice axe is highly recommended for some steep sections on the approaches from Vesper Lake. For full trip report see links below: http://www.dandelions-expedition.com/2014/08/23/vesper-peak-via-the-north-face-5-7/ http://www.dandelions-expedition.com/2014/08/24/sperry-peak/
  2. I was wondering if anyone know how the new water in Tumwater Canyon is effecting the enchantments. We have permits in climb this weekend... but the fire is close. How is the air quality and the chance of the first leaping over to the range?
  3. can you give me an idea of what your rack included and gear to how many inches roughly? Thanks for the info!
  4. Planning on climbing the NW Buttress (5.7) of Witches Tower in the enchantments this weekend... the only beta we can find is that it is a twin crack system that turns into a single jamming crack. Does anyone have any additional beta (# of pitches, suggested gear/gear size, general descriptions, photos, etc)? info on west buttress also appreciated as a backup plan...

  7. 2 jumars with grigri backup

    I have found lots of info on jugging with two ascenders and jugging with one ascender and one grigri. However, I can't seem to find any video demos or illustrations on how to use two ascenders/jumars with a grigri backup. It is just simply mentioned in some articles with little detail. This is the system I am more interested in using and I'd like some further info on the setup. Links and/or explanations appreciated :-)
  8. Hey guys... I've had this blog up for a while. It has trip reports of all of my outdoor trips (climbing, hiking, xc skiing, trekking) mostly in the cascades, but also in other areas nationally and internationally. Maybe it will help plan your next adventure! Dandelion's Expedition
