  1. Dave says topo's are aid. Good times up there Mr. Evans. A real treat for me to hang with, and watch David (the tooth fairy) Whitelaw at work.
  2. Wow! I was there years ago with Mr. Beckey. I'm tired of the WA Pass drive, and with all these good anchors think I'm past due for a return trip. Thanks for the gifts DavidW.
  3. Mt Stuart West Ridge question

    a somewhat unprotected traverse left it's the way I've been. This is south of the crest, and leads to the small notch accessible via the north side option. about 5.7 Anyone know if there has been a rockfall on the last pitch in the last several years? The pitch leading to the summit, from the ledge on the south side.
  4. Yes, very nice. Congrats! Neat to see you move so quick over so much mtn., and way out there style or advanced.
  5. not repeated because it's too hard
  6. West Face NEWS rappel route

    Agree with Matt P. and Offwhite. Would something like this make sense on snow cr. wall?
  7. [TR] Dragontail Peak - Backbone with Fin 7/14/2013

    thumbs up, and crank it up.
  8. Austin Post, 3/16/22 - 11/12/12

    What a nice guy. I spent some time last night with the Beckey guides and was reminded how important Austins pictures were for my own climbs and dreams. for example notice how dramatic Elephant Head is in the photo on the wall behind Austin in John's picture. Thank you Mr. Post.

  11. Cleaning a pack

    That's not how Arcteryx does it
  12. Jim Nelson and Peter Potterfield are updating volume II of their Cascade climbing guide for a reprint. If you've noticed anything in that guide book that is incorrect or out of date, the authors would welcome a response. Simply reply to this post with any updates so that we can keep the guide book current. Thanks everyone.
  13. Awesome old guys! Love the evening pics.
  14. pm me, and I can give second hand beta. Maybe draw a line on a picture for you.
  15. Another vote for Cascadian, love it. Not ideal, but there doesn't seem to be an easy way off this peak.
  16. yes, beautiful pics. Lunger, is your game more lebron or dwade?
  17. The Ptarmigans and their P trips, by Harvey Manning. Their Picket/Chilliwack trip was also rather impressive. Interesting that more than 70 years later, the Ptarmigan Traverse as per original party is very likely un-repeated. I like to go out to the the middle from Cascade Pass, and then return the same way. Avoids the car shuttle and you get to spend the whole time up high. The Dome area is great and worth it's own trip as well. However you do it, enjoy!
  18. Best WA climbing vids

    nice, Stuart and Monkeys! I liked these 3, and High Ice.
