  1. Bolts on Little Sister

    Hey y'all, I was participating in one of the recent AMGA courses that went up there. I think this area probably fits better with these kinds of courses and recreational parties better than guiding for the general public, but at least alerting the forest service to the increased use seems like a great idea. As word gets out that the trail into the area involves no bushwhacking its just going to take off more and more. My group was responsible for the handful of piton anchors on the northeast face of Little Sister and some updated/adjusted stations on the Green Creek Arete. No idea who put the bolts in, and I know some other AMGA courses have been going up there as well but I have a hard time imagining they would have hauled a bolt kit in.
  2. Clearing out some random gear. Happy to meet in Seattle, Bellingham, or anywhere in between. Will respond fastest by text at twoO6 7one5 1nine2six, let me know if you're interested or have questions! Two Petzl Quarks, one previous generation and one current generation - $240 for the pair. Only moderately used, still have original picks with plenty of life left. I have the trigrests around but just need to find them. Black Diamond Mission 45 pack - $80. Moderately used. Awesome pack but I'm adjusting my pack quiver and need something bigger for guided trips. It has a ton of space for a 45 liter pack. La Sportiva Aequilibrium LT GTX (43) - $200. Used once, don't work well with my feet. Seems like an awesome summer Cascades boot otherwise. Petzl Vasak front sections - $30 Mountain Equipment Magik shells pants (small) - $200. Never used. Marmot shell jacket (medium) - $40. Lightweight no frills rain jacket. REI Half Dome 2+ tent - $80. This has seen plenty of love but could certainly still make a good spacious backpacking or mountaineering tent. Has a hole burned in one door from a stove that could easily be patched.
  3. Western Washington Bouldering

    Pretty easy to find dry boulders with just a day of dry weather.
  4. Western Washington Bouldering

    Goldbar, index, leavenworth, squamish, etc. will all be absolutely prime this whole week until it starts raining again.
  5. Snow free besides one patch until a mile up, then consistent snow the rest of the way as of yesterday. A few strong dudes with tacoma, chains and a chainsaw could probably drive to the end with half a days work.

    Its a good story to be sure. One worthy of a cc trip report dare I say.
  7. I got this tent two years ago when I was mostly backpacking and have since transitioned to more alpine climbing where it doesn't make much sense as a shelter. I only ended up using it about five nights, so its in great condition. Its a great little tent, using two adjustable trekking poles to set up and weighing just a hair over two pounds. Perfect for fast summer backpacks in the cascades. It is a single wall design and as is typical can get some condensation in damp air, but has decent ventilation and is roomy enough for two people that your sleeping bags won't touch the sides and get wet. They run $265 new, asking for $180 OBO. I go to school in Bellingham and am from Seattle, and could meet up to an hour in any direction from either.

  8. for sale Marmot Parka, Dynafit TLT boots

    Interested in the tlt6s. Sent you a message
  9. I had thought about doing this on and off for a while but never really got around to it. Glad to hear someone more ambitious than me came up with the idea!

    This was one of the funnier TRs I've read recently. Your suffering is my entertainment, many thanks!
  11. Ultimate Lib Bell group enchainment?

    Lexington and Concord both seem to make more sense going north to south, as there are straightforward rap stations on their south faces. When I did it, we started with the Beckey Route, climbed routes on the two north faces, then did the chockstone route on NEWS and finished with the south arete on SEWS. What would probably be the best true traverse but also a much bigger day would be the NW face of liberty bell, the two north face routes, northwest corner on NEWS, rap the chockstone route, and finally up the southwest rib and down the soiuth arete of SEWS. You can't read the whole thing unless youre a member, but the supertopo page has some great beta. The useful stuff is about rapping off of lexington and concord which is before it gets cut off.
  12. crampon lace

    I always wrap the strap around my boot twice and then the extra is just enough to tuck under the boot lace. I would imagine if it is much longer than that you could trim it and melt the edge so it doesn't fray. Still plenty long if you needed to put them on larger boots or anything.
  13. 3 o’clock rock stewards, thank you

    That first picture is amazing!
  14. Bannock Mountain NE Face

    I just looked in the Beckey guide and it just has the southwest route
