  1. Trip: Mt Hood - Reid Headwall Trip Date: 05/11/2019 Trip Report: For the detailed version, check out the post on my blog. Simulclimbed up the Reid Headwall Left Variation (Mullee 8a) on May 11th, 2019. The climbing was mostly in good neve snow, with a lone ice section. Lots of falling debris, and a very large rhyme pinnace becoming detached at the base of the final snow/rhyme field. Probably the last Hood climb I'll do until 2020. Gear Notes: 3 pickets, 1 screw needed, 50m rope (would have gone with a 30m if we knew the conditions beforehand) Approach Notes: The Southside is still the Southside
  2. [TR] Mt Hood - North Face 05/01/2019

    Nothing that exciting haha. We ditched our poles close to the bottom of the North Face and figured that would be the quickest way to retrieve them. In hindsight it would probably have been easier to just pack them.
  3. Trip: Mt Hood - North Face Trip Date: 05/01/2019 Trip Report: For the detailed version, check out the post on my blog. Went up the North Face Right Hand Gully on May 1st, 2019. The climbing was in great conditions. The shrund is definitely opening up and may become more complicated to cross over the next few days. The right gully fully goes all the way to the summit without any significant difficulties. The two ice pitches are in fat/easy condition. Get at it! Gear Notes: Alpine ice climbing gear Approach Notes: Tilly Jane trail in good condition!
  4. Kautz Conditions?

    Fellow climbers! Has anybody recently got on the Kautz route on Rainier? I climbed the Fuhrer Finger a couple weeks ago, and on our way up, there were plenty of folks who were shooting for the Kautz coming down because they heard that it was no good. I also heard from several IMG guides that it was no good. Unfortunately, none of these people had actually seen the would-be uncrossable obstacle in person. I did give the rangers a phone call asking about conditions, and they said that things were normal up there though. I'm yet to see a trip report here or a route tick on Mountain Project, so I am not quite sure what to believe.. Any good info would be much appreciated! I'm hoping to go up there this upcoming weekend.
  5. I've aquired a few too many watches over the past year. Many of them are actually completely new and unused. These are pretty much the best of the best when it comes to climbing watches. All of these watches are the top of the lines of their models. I didn't cheap out when buying them! I looked online for the lowest prices I could find and priced them under. - Suunto Spartan Multisport HR GPS, All Black Titanium (NEW, $500) - Garmin Fenix 5 Multisport GPS, Slate Gray with Black Band (NEW, $450) - Garmin Fenix 3 Multisport GPS w/ HRM, Sapphire Edition (NEW, $350) - Suunto Ambit3 Peak, Black (lightly used, $230) - Suunto Ambit3 Peak, Stainless Steel (lightly used, $230) (No I did not rob my local REI.)
  6. For sale are a couple extra pairs of Sportiva boots I've got. All in size 42.5. FOR PHOTOS: https://www.mountainproject.com/forum/topic/112962461/fs-new-boots-g2-sm-batura-20-nepal-cube-gtx Batura 2.0 - $SOLD There are used extremely little, just around 3 days in pure ice. I accidentally ordered 2 pairs online and couldnt return either of them. They are in almost brand new condition. Nepal Cube GTX - $265 These boots have a few weeks of use on them, but they are still new enough for the yellow leather to be bright! The toe and heel welts are in great condition as well. All prices are for local pickup in Seattle or Redmond. If you want them shipped tack on $15 and I'll cover the rest. I do not check the forum very much so PMing me is not a good way to reach me at all. You can text me at four-two-five-six-nine-eight-8418
