    Thanks for the report, was thinking of heading into that area this weekend. You park on NF-55?
  2. crampon lace

    I trimmed mine on an older pair and then tried them on my AT boots and they didn't fit so I had to get new laces. New pair I haven't trimmed so they'll be compatible with any boot. Would personally recommend not cutting.
  3. Chair Peak Conditions 2019

    I went up on Sunday and the NEB was in good condition. Snow before the ice step could be a bit loose but really nothing bad, was comfortable running it out. Ice was in great shape - some really thick ice below the ice step for a belay station. Snow on higher pitches and downclimb was solid. A team went over and looked at the NF and decided against it so I assume it was not in good shape for whatever reason.
  4. Recovering from traumatic injury/surgery

    Good to hear about your recovery and thanks for writing this up, sounds like you took the recovery seriously and it payed off. I had my appendix removed recently, which I know is nothing like what you experienced, but it was the first time I've really been physically incapable of doing things, and it sucks. Lost 10 lbs after the surgery and wasn't able to lift more than 15 lbs or use my core for a month, which destroyed my climbing/skiing training routine, and probably my early season climbing plans. Just starting to exercise now and I've lost a lot of my strength and stamina. Reading your post makes me think I should have been more proactive during my recovery rather than going back to work too soon and being a lazy asshole/eating like crap...
  5. Awesome trip report! I've been wanting to explore this area for a while now. Great info, thanks for posting!
