  1. There Was Shrinkage!

    Feel free to post other examples from the Cascades if you have them!
  2. Everything is so phat in that Roper photo! I imagine that was during high summer? My how the glaciers continue to shrink.
  3. Start to finish, completely rad. So much stoke, so much youth! Love to see the next generation at the height of their "storm years"!!
  4. [TR] Glacier Peak - Frostbite Ridge 08/07/2022

    This is one of my favorite routes in the range, but I haven't been back since the road washed out in 2003. Need to change that! But over 4 days for this old guy.... Great report, thanks! Oh, and for future parties, you can avoid the dangerous bit on the Kennedy by going around the north side of Kennedy peak. A bit longer, but quite mellow and scenic- that's how we went.
  5. Mildred Lakes Area

    Looks like a nice and tasty weekend! Love the links to the trips on your memory lane!
  6. @Sam Boyce and Lani are taking the range by storm!! Pretty impressive string...
  7. Whoah, after all that build up over the years, I thought it was going to be 10+. Way to slay the beast and bring back a report to the timid masses! Truly an incredible spire!!!!
  8. Psycholocross Bikes

    That's a sweet bike! I really like the combo of steel frame/carbon fork, sounds like your bike rides similar but is way lighter! Since we're trading bike pics, here's mine:
  9. Psycholocross Bikes

    Crazy!!! I had no idea they made Ti frames! But I am really not much of a bike nerd.
  10. Psycholocross Bikes

    I just use my Jamis Renegade to ride around town and to work, mostly to stay fit.. Maybe the occasional gravel approach road. But they are a sweet style of bike! What did you get @olyclimber?
  11. It has been so long since I've been in that area (more than 20 years) that I need to go back! I hardly remember how good the views are! Thanks for the report...
  12. [TR] Prusik - West ridge 07/27/2022

    Such a fantastic route, thanks for the great report!
  13. Yes, Jacob's Ladder is definitely not a "classic" in the classic sense. And for us, the mystery of the unknown was quite enticing, and for sure clouded our view of the route. But glad that it was a good diversion nonetheless!
  14. Pat McGrane's Pioneer climbing guide

    I've never even heard of this range....looks great!
  15. Looks like a great outing! And yes, in full sun and no wind, those alpine trout are spooooooooky!
  16. That is a mega trip, solo, and slightly injured! Thanks for the report and glad it all went safely. What did you think of Jacob's Ladder? I'm always interested to hear non-biased opinions!
  17. Was trying to embed a hyperlapse, but I am not smart enough.
  18. Well, we're old and crotchety, and like the Freedom of the Hills..... so we only heed closures if it is actively on fire. I suspect that the USFS is merely covering their liability bases, post-fire. The Suiattle road is closed within a hundred yards of the Downey Creek trail so not much extra walking on the south end. The north end has gotten trickier this week since NPS says that it is "closed" unless you have overnight permit in the park (or that is what they said last week). No idea of how hard they are enforcing it.
  19. Thanks for the kind words @cfire, it certainly helps that I'm competing with you! And yes @setnei, small world indeed- it was great running into you guys out there. You should do up a TR from your adventure and all the great images you captured! @Bronco, that tent is one of a kind, not for sale.
  20. [TR] Mount Maude - North Face 07/23/2022

    I didn't know you knew Chris!!! So great.
  21. You heard it here first folks, staying up to date on cc.com just may save your life! Or, better said, listen to @rat at all times! (glad you guys survived!!)
  22. The last great problem?

    No, but it almost did me in about 10 years ago. Spontaneous rockfall came flying off of that face and impacted the couloir all around us, narrowly missing killing at least a couple of us. But I'm sure that was just a bad coincidence!
  23. Damn. And here I was thinking that you were sliding into the mediocrity of middle age. That looks STOUT for the dad crowd!!
