  1. Here’s a couple photos from the weekend Bergschrund C8CB0840-F52D-4CC4-AA6A-AD38B25DB30D.MOV Summit! we only pulled out the rope for the last ice step. I got deluged with spin drift! 🤣🤣🤣
  2. Nice, good work! Thanks for sharing
  3. Gorgeous photos! What a place, what a peak! Thanks for the TR!
  4. East Twin Needle, Himmelgeisterhorn and Ottohorn are some of the most enjoyable climbing I've done any where! Doing the traverse from Terror to Ottohorn would be such a good line.
  5. Trip: Pasayten Wilderness - Cathedral and Amphitheater - SE Buttress of Cathedral Peak and Finger of Fatwa on Middle Finger Buttress on Amphitheatre Mountain Trip Date: 08/31/2018 Trip Report: Ethan and I climbed the classic SE Buttress (5.10a) on Cathedral Peak on Saturday Sept 1st and The Finger of Fatwa (5.11c) on the Middle Finger Buttress on Amphitheatre Mountain on Sept 2nd. The SE buttress was super enjoyable, following an obvious aesthetic line up the peak, on beautiful, sunny rock. One other party was in front of us, and let us pass at the headwall. The Finger of Fatwa follows a striking line, up a steep splitter .5” crack and traversing a set of two wild left-pointing roofs. I'm curious who else has climbed it since 2011 when Scott Bennett and Blake Herrington put it up. I don’t think this route gets much attention, judging by the amount of moss. But it should get done more! It’s so cool! We didn't get the red-point, but if we cleaned it up a bit, I think it would go next time! Belay under the roof Pulling the roof: A little bit of bouldering capped the trip! The weather was questionable on Saturday, but cleared up around 10am. We hiked out in a light snow on Monday, that cleared up to blistering heat by the time we reached the trailhead. Saturday sunset: Sunday sunset: Gear Notes: Wires, Doubles from tips to #2, single #3, #4 Coffee every damn morning! Approach Notes: 8-10 hours approach via Andrew's Creek Trailhead ... From Upper Cathedral lake, a 15-45 minutes approach
  6. But who is the boss, really? ... Nope our packs were the same weight, both when leading and following. On the upper 2K foot wallow, one 1.5L water bottle move back and forth between leader and follower. Last year we summited Denali, so we knew we dealt with 20K feet OK. We got the idea from the Smileys who had a similar schedule and felt the altitude but managed. http://smileysproject.blogspot.com/2015/06/denalis-cassin-ridge-classic-climb-45_25.html We asked our paying bosses, very nicely.
  7. And here a GPS tracks! Cassin_Ridge.gpx And a couple extras: IMG_9713.mov IMG_9702.mov IMG_9659.mov
  8. Trip: Mount Rainier - Liberty Ridge Trip Date: 05/27/2018 Trip Report: We were also on Liberty Ridge this Memorial Day weekend, climbing from Winthrop Glacier to the summit on Sunday. If you were climbing it on Sunday, there might be some photos of you here! Posting in case y'all are interested! Us: Summit camp: GPS tracks: topoMapsExport.gpx Gear Notes: IPhone Approach Notes: East side to gain Liberty ridge
  9. [TR] Chair Peak - North Face 12/16/2017

    The area was around the red line area in the first link you sent. We were definitely very nervous crossing the blue line area to reach our own cache. It was the soft new snow that slid off a harder icy layer. Here's some photos of the crown of the slide.
  10. 2017/18 Oregon Washington ice

    I got a couple photos of you Peter. It was good to meet you!
  11. Rad line! Great photos... What an awesome way to start off the season
  12. Mmm onions, wolves, Darrington deep-water soloing... Oooh la la... Love the photos. Thanks for sharing!
  13. Woohoo! Yeah, thanks Tim! How were the avalanche conditions?
  14. Yeah! I agree, THIS is the spirit! You guys rock! It's too bad it didn't go this year, last year was a lot better for ice. I hope you get on it in the future! Thanks for sharing
  15. Fun fun times! Type 1 the whole time! There is still tons of snow everywhere. Notes: I had expected it to take us less that 4.5 hours to get to the lake, even with the road closed. We were going fast with light packs, but maybe microspikes could have shaved off .5 hours? (not sure) People have done it (with the road closed) in 3.25 hrs. Maybe there was less snow, but kudos! I guessed it would take 6 hours on route, from the lake. It took 5.5. Sweet! I thought it would take <~2 hours to descend back to the lake, it took 1.25(ish) nice... Glissading is great! 4.25hrs back to the cars. There was some lolly-gagging. Evidence in the photos (full-body snow plunging, dying of laughter, etc) Conclusion: Need to make legs move faster, while not falling on face
