  1. AUG 4 - 10

    Thinking something more remote and beautiful over technical. Glacier Peak? The Ptarmigan Traverse? Chelan-ish? Something "adventurous".
  2. AUG 4 - 10

    Have the 4th to 10th off and hoping to do something remote, the reg. partners are all working. Let me know if interested! Brandon

  4. [TR] Mt Rainier - Kautz - Tahoma 07/14/2018

    @dave schultz Yes, that was definitely me and a buddy in the bivys! Wind was not fun on fri night/early sat up there in a bivy. Must've been earlier in the night, but we had a couple periods of decent gusts. BUT had zero wind the next night (sat night) bivying at 13k atop the Wapowety, which was rad
  5. Preferred Kautz Approach

    Must have just missed us! Think I saw you guys high on route. We started Fri later afternoon, camped low, and moved up to 13k on the wapowety and camped there on sat.
  6. [TR] Mt Rainier - Kautz - Tahoma 07/14/2018

    Did you happen to walk past our camp low down at 8000 ft on Saturday morning? Maybe spot two people in bivvys getting punished by the wind?
  7. Preferred Kautz Approach

    Thanks for the info. The Wilson gully ended up being totally fine!
  8. Preferred Kautz Approach

    Yeah @jstluise, I haven't seen any sort of reports/updates for a couple weeks. And thanks @ScaredSilly, Friday mid-afternoon to Sunday. The Comet Falls approach sounds like a nice change of scenery compared to the Paradise area.
  9. Debating between Paradise approach and the Comet Falls approach for a 3 day climb this weekend. Any special thoughts/suggestions from those with experience on the Kautz? Quite curious to see what the very warm weather will do to the Lower Nisqually. Much appreciated!
  10. Kautz or similar

    Hoping to get out and climb the Kautz either next weekend or the weekend after. Would also be open to something similar in nature. Have summitted Rainier a few times (DC and Emmons), and am looking to begin hitting up the less crowded and more interesting routes. Shoot me a pm if interested and we can talk experience/dates.
  11. Would you recommend bringing skis or not really any use/reward?
  12. Squak Glacier Ski?

    Thanks @JasonG! Looks like road is closed 1 mi from trailhead, which shouldn't be bad on skis. How is the routefinding on the approach down low? Looks like a straight North shot from the Park Butte TH
  13. Squak Glacier Ski?

    Hoping to ski a Baker route this weekend. Am deciding between the CD and Squak. Any personal thoughts/preferences or notes? Haven't been on the Squak before, and was thinking it might have fewer people this weekend. Would love to hear from someone who has skied it.
  14. Looking for a touring setup on a college-student budget. Boots would be in the 28-29 range. Let me know if you have anything, I am hoping to be ready for when the resorts close!
  15. Title says it all. North Cascades, Glacier Pk., Rainier, Olympics maybe. Glacier stuff mostly, but am up to follow some easy alpine rock if that's what you want to do.
