  1. Weather outlook for 13 - 20 June 2020

    Maybe I'm getting lazy with my weather game, but at this point I just check the Hood mountain forecast (PDX based) and if it looks gross I just assume all the volcanoes are out and pack the biking/rock climbing gear instead. We do get some regional variation, but the volcanoes always have the worst weather.
  2. 2019/2020 OR/WA Ice Conditions

    Any updates on the Enchaments zone?
  3. Summer skiing

    Nah, I bailed in August. The biking/climbing was too good, hard to stay motivated for the turns.
  4. Ptarmigan traverse

    There's a partner forum (you posted in the wrong sub). Probably more likely to find partners near the time you're doing the trip, a year is a long way to plan. Note: I moved the post. -Jon
  5. Summer skiing

    A couple of weeks ago now, but the Eliot glacier had pretty good July turns!
  6. question HMG 4400 ice pack vs Osprey Aether Pro

    I'm a big fan of the Cold Cold World packs, which you don't see a lot of out here. Relatively inexpensive, and you can get them customized however you like. I use the Valdez for all my day trips, works great. I have the larger one too, which I like. One nice thing about frameless packs is that you can make them much smaller if you're gonna hike in for a few days and then climb with the pack. Frameless doesn't carry a bunch of weight as well, but ideally you're not carrying a bunch of weight anyway, right?
  7. Dry Tooling At Rocky Butte

    Can't really answer your question, but my understanding is there's just that one area that's kosher for dry tooling. I haven't seen too many people out there in general, and haven't come across anyone dry tooling other routes yet.

    Ah damn, was looking to ski. Figured I was late. Thanks!

    Cool! Looking for some recent photos of CJ, but thanks anyway. Looks like a nice day out.

    Nice TR! Did you happen to get any photos of J-berg?
  11. Mt Hood

    It's in good shape, likely will be for about 2 months. Was up Sat and Sun.
  12. Nice! We were that group chilling at Queen's chair. Didn't see you guys, but saw the group behind you hauling skis up. Leutholds was in good ski shape, BTW.
  13. Mt Hood

    A partner and I had to leave some screws in the Pearly Gates on Sat. Not holding out too much hope, but if anyone makes it up there and gets them I would happily offer a sixer or two for their return.
