  1. Nice! Sounds like a good outing. How was Church?
  2. How many tripods did you need to kick over to get that spot @olyclimber??!!
  3. When @dberdinka invites you to Zion, you go!
  4. Just be willing to shift to non-volcanoes if the weather dictates. You'll want a bomber forecast with low winds to make Rainier fun and safe. June is not known for good weather, but there are always east side alternatives during that time of year (Enchantments, WA Pass, etc.). This is a good source for your Rainier weather planning: https://forecast.weather.gov/product.php?site=NWS&issuedby=SEW&product=REC
  5. I was at the same desk/job as now, when 9/11 happened. Indeed, things are relative.
  6. Wow! That is a gem. I should have asked Dallas if he had any extra copies laying around, I definitely don't have one of those!
  7. Ha, I bought many of those new when they came out! Am I old?
  8. All are well worth seeking out! Some took effort to track down. Make sure you get the maps with the Routes and Rocks!
  9. As is the "Challenge...." I have a few others at home that I will try and post up that are all great.
  10. The Tom Miller North Cascades book is definitely a classic
  11. Good to see you back around these parts @bulgert100! Let @olyclimber know if you need to get access to your classic login.....
  12. Never heard of this company before, thanks for the heads up. Looks like great products!
  13. I do not have Leo's genes and neither do my kids. I still hear plenty of whining on a 3k vert trail and they're 13 and 15!
  14. That's a tough one up in these parts....but I admire your drive. I just went hiking with my kids and that felt like enough. I am not sure if I know of something that checks all your boxes.....but.....I think anything like that will need to be midweek. Anything solid enough to be "safe" in the Cascades is going to be popular on weekends. Even popular climbs still have a fair amount of loose rock hazard. Maybe drive down to Tuolumne? Maybe when she gets a bit older things like the Tooth, S Early, Liberty Bell, etc. will be the ticket but I think that is too much for a 3 year old. But what do I know!
  15. Such a great time to go climbing at D-town!
  16. Oh, and yes @KirkW, I am all for easy in my mature mountaineer phase.
  17. Good point. My friend TJ said it was only painful until he realized he had to play dead. Then the adrenaline kicked in. Unfortunately, it wore off as he was holding his scalp in place on the hike back to the trailhead.
  18. Good for you @jrit, all you can do is try, and that is more than most do. I've worked for a Tribe for the past 23+ years and I still get surprised when tribal regulations change!
