  1. La Sportiva Nepal ice climbing boots size 43 These are not the evo's They are lightly used and pretty close to like new condition - 3 years old - I have climbed ~20 pitches of ice in them. I bought them before I realized AT Ski boots were what I needed in the PNW so they haven't see much use. $280 OBO - Looking at comparable boots on ebay this seems like a fair price. I will upload photos when I am back home tonight.

    This looks interesting. Is this a fairly known area for ice? More specifically I'm interested if you are willing to share more details on getting there as I am not familiar with the area.
  3. crampon lace

    I trimmed mine so that I've got about 3'' of extra to accommodate different boots and I've had no issues with it being too short.
  4. Mt Hood

    I have been worried about this as well but have camped in the lower lot a handful of times with no issue - Just my experience.

  6. How to climb ice in Oregon in May

    Where the heck is this? somewhere on the north side of hood?
  7. I think we may have seen you zipping across the Reid Glacier below us as we headed up the Reid Headwall - it was probably 630-7.
  8. Well next time we head up to Washington I'd happily buy you a beer! or if you ever head down to Bend, OR. I might have to look into a little point and shoot that shoots RAW instead of lugging my giant slr around.
  9. Thank you for the new desktop background! What are you shooting with?
  10. Awesome photos. Thanks for sharing.
  11. The snow was pretty soft, I was sinking about knee deep on the Hog's back. It made for a quick descent down the old chute because you could just drive your heels into the snow and let gravity do most of the work.
  12. Trip: Mt. Hood - South Side - Hogs Back - Pearly Gates Date: 3/17/2016 Trip Report: Parked in the Timberline lodge and went to sleep around 10 p.m. Wednesday night. It seemed like I was woken up by plows clearing the lot everything 45 min. 3:15 a.m. I started skinning up towards the top of the Palmer lift and besides my desire to turn around and go back to sleep it was great. The sky was clear, bright with stars and even saw a handful of shooting stars. I arrived at the top of the Palmer lift around 5 a.m. and the summit at 8:50 a.m. The bergschrund was filled in with snow, couldn't really see it at all. Came back down to the hogsback via the old chute and skied the rest of the way to the parking lot and arrived there at 10:15 a.m. Gear Notes: Mountaineering axe, crampons and Skis
  13. Hey, I'm looking for anyone interested in getting into the mountains. I recently moved from Flagstaff, Arizona to Bend, OR. My climbing career started in college and quickly found myself climbing a lot in Sedona,AZ. I would like to gain experience in the Alpine/mountaineering/bigger mountain disciplines. Currently I am a 5.10 trad leader and 5.11 sport leader. I would consider myself very competent in terms of technical skills like building anchors placing gear etc. I do however lack weather and condition knowledge as I am from AZ where it rains and then 20 minutes later you are dry again. Let me know if you are interested in getting together...!
