  2. Dragontail Fall

    It was a SPOT. Sounds like the climber fell early on the route and that they were carrying overnight gear to carry over to climb Prussik next. I assume Noah will tell us more at some point.

  4. Rumors of ice?? conditions update??

    It's really been snowing hard in Leavenworth since last night. Please check the avy if you plan on playing in the next few days. Sounds like it is going to dump for a day or two more.
  5. We went for a hike today around Bridge Creek. Pretty warm and thin. Didn't take tools, just out to stretch the legs. It will be a while before anything comes in.
  6. conditions in leavenworth/hyalite???

    It snowed today about 500' above Leavenworth, but was pretty sunny today. I'm guessing it will be a while. (Morning temps in Cashmere are still high 30s.)
  7. Pilot Tony Reece in Helicopter Crash

    For anyone who was ever rescued, lost and then found, etc. in the North Cascades you probably owe Tony your life. Tony is an amazing pilot and I felt lucky to have worked with him during my tenure at N. Cascades NP. Tony knows the park like the back of his hand and would always go above and beyond. I'm glad he is ok.
  8. Khumbu Climbing School

    Hey everybody. I just got a plea from my good friend Lincoln Else who has been the climbing ranger at Yosemite for a number of years. Lincoln is volunteering with the Khumbu Climbing School one of the projects of the Alex Lowe organization. The KCS helps train Nepalis to safely work in the mountaineering field. Lincoln is looking for folks to make donations to make this possible. If you can help click Donate . Thanks for your help and generosity
  9. On a related topic.. what's the new (dirty, dirty) sport route below Ordinary Crack en route to Glass Eye. Seemed fun even if the crux was too much for our wobbly knees.
  10. I'm still waiting for the Liberty Link-up. Liberty Ridge and Liberty Crack!! What's the current record? Anyone do them in the same season? (Probably not from CO..)

  16. Leavenworth Litter Clean Up

    Hey y'all- I'm the proud "Adopter" of 2 miles of Highway 2 near Nason Creek and Coles Corner. My Spring Clean Up is April 23rd and I would love to see some cc.com folks come help. We had a good time in October and it felt good to spruce up the place. Send me a PM for more info. Thanks-
  17. Alpinist 10

    I owned a gun when I was a wetsider. Wore it to work most days. I'm glad you liked the story, thanks to BigWave for letting me tell it.

  19. Alpinist 9

    thanks. Thanks to the cc.com rs who were actually there and let me tell their silly story.
  20. Climbing Mt Kenya

    which peak on mt kenya? my brother and I did the trekking peak (class 2/3 at altitude). A good time was had by all. Porters aren't required like on Kili, but I say it's the way to go. Have a great time, I really enjoyed E. Africa and would love to go back to do multiple routes on mt. kenya (especially the ice routes if they ever come in again.)
  21. missed PM sorry

    Someone wrote me a PM about winter climbs. It seems to have disappeared before I could reply. Who ever it was, I hope the climb went well.
  22. n cascades trivia/riddle

    Add to the lists (or correct others), but don't give it away.. Challenger, not Maude Inspiration, not Swiss Peak Chopping Block, not Fury Davis, not Fernow Slesse, not Cathedral this game may help me with a research project I'm working on..
  23. Ptarmigan Ridge Rescue 2-6-05

    BTR -Glad to hear you made it home safe. Sounds like quite a trip.
  24. Washouts at MRNP

    I guess it's time for you to convince the Republican Congress to increase funding for National Parks so they can have adequate staffing. I would assume opening prior to 9am means having at least another shift of 2 rangers in addition to the road crews. I guess one reason I left the NPS was this assumption by the public that the Feds are always trying to screw the public, just cause they can.
  25. The Ghost Access

    You wanna hear about things that suck.. Last year we went in with 4 of us crammed in my little Nissan, folks in the little kid seats wanted to puke when we arrived. When we were packing up to hike to THOS Mr. Yates realized he had left his crampons at the hotel. DOH! So he started walking out and actually made it some distance down the highway where we picked him up that evening.. YATES is one tough fella...
