  1. Gorge Ice is in!

    Wow, great shot. That looks incredible!
  2. 2016/17 Ice Conditions

    Thanks for the update Wallstein. Anyone looking for gorge ice on Saturday? It looks like we're staying below freezing until Sunday. I need a leading partner!
  3. [TR] The Gorge - Ainsworth Left 1/7/2017

    Sorry to hear about the car being broken into. Here's a shot of the 3rd pitch on Ainsworth which I shot before we bailed.
  4. Gorge Ice is in!

    Anyone getting out there tomorrow morning and could use a follower? I'd love to get out
  5. I'm signed up for clinics but still need a travel partner for Bozeman Ice Fest. I want to drive there Weds Dec 7 and back Sunday Dec 11. Who needs a ride or can take another passenger?
  6. Hikes in the French/Swiss Alps?

    Thanks everyone for the input. If I wasn't totally clear, my significant other is not a climber so would not be up for 4th class stuff, or roped-up glacier travel. I know this is a climbing forum and I'm asking for non-climbing advice... Any good links on this one? We're not just limited to Savoie area -- we're in the planning stages now, and can go just about anywhere. The Dolomites seem a bit far, however. Speaking of which, you can make a very casual two night crossing of the border, spending night one in the Cabane du Trient (Switz) crossing the Col du Tour the next day to the Refuge Albert (France) and possibly climbing the Aiguille du Tour along the way if you enjoy loose 4th class. We did it in that direction and descended to Tour, 20 mins up valley from Chamonix on day 3. Lots of gentle and non technical glacier walking. You would need crampons and an ax, a 30m rope if you want to look like a sporty professional. Looks great, except for the actual climber part. Partner can't do that. Any info on the huts or difficulty of terrain? Dolomites seem a bit far off what our other plans might be, such as Paris and up into Germany, urban areas. Thanks for the suggestion, but anything similar in other parts of the Alps?
  7. Hoping some of you cc'ers have recommendations on hikes in the Alps. Looking for input on multiday hikes I can do with my significant other in September of next year. We'll be in France and Switzerland and I'm looking for something nontechnical, ideally a multiday hut-to-hut experience where we don't have to carry much. She's doesn't enjoy sufferfests like I do. 3-4 day stuff would be fantastic. Thanks for any beta!

    Three of us had a great 3 hour session last week and will be doing it more this summer. Any takers for next Tuesday, 7/2 at 6pm?

    I had the privilege of meeting Laurel at Trout Creek last year. Fantastic climber, great person, the genuine article. I'm very sad to hear the news and I wish the best to her friends and family.

    billcoe, thanks for the beta. Puckerjunkie, up for a Thursday evening sesh next week? I can probably be there by 6pm which would give us a couple hours.
  14. Alpiners Anonymous: PDX dry tool night

    Really anytime after this weekend. I'd be up for evening sessions every so often on weekdays, but more likely is weekend days if I can't put together any weekend trips.

    Thread resurrection. I'm going to get out to the Butte this summer and finally learn mixed. I'm looking for partners, beta, spray, whatever.
