  1. [TR] mt. kent - north face 03/05/2019

    Nice; kicking, stabbing, AND wallowing. It's all anyone needs.
  2. [TR] Chair Peak - NE Buttress 01/27/2019

    There’s also a fun spicier start just around to the right of the buttress toe. A bit Scottishy and turfy.
  3. for sale RAB Haedshell Jacket and pants

    Howdy, I'd like to take a look at these. This evening good?
  4. Howdy, How does $60 cash sound? I'm in Seattle, can p/u anytime after work (7pm).
  5. FWIW, years ago Colin and I accessed the buttress from the east with good snow cover and it was cake. I'll check my notes to see what time of year that was.
  6. [TR] Dragontail - TC 05/01/2018

    On 4/22 NW face route between Backbone and Serpentine was quite dry, too.
  7. kukuzka1, his brother, and I were Team Motrin on an Alaska trip a few years back; I think graduating to Team Centrum Silver is appropriate!
  8. You'd love it dude, next year you can guide me up it 'cause by then I'll forget that we even did it!
  9. Just one shortie Snarg, used 3x in the blessed turf blobs. Some very crappy phone pics follow... The first page of the newest Testament: The first 3 meters off the ground: The next 15 meters, which set the tone for most of the climbing: Looking straight up last pitch and summit cornice. (The few other pics I took during the climb were too crappy for publication): Summit shot. If you look closely you can see the chiseled Fingers of Fate: This climb, in the conditions we found it, is harder and more sustained than NYG and PE and all their variations. Though Rolf said that's because we're old now. Praise be Turf for without it we are NOTHING!
  10. [TR] Chair Pk - NW Ridge 02/11/2018

    I don't really remember a big chockstone chimney other than the upper feature in the 5th and 6th pics. After I took that shot of Don on the south side he deked right then back up to the cool spiny crest. We just about followed the way we went a couple summers ago. I totally agree with your sentiments about the Snoq Alps! There's even stuff left to do on the NW side of Snoqualmie Mtn. I'm positive that last weekend there could have been numerous new routes put up all over them Alps!
  11. [TR] Chair Pk - NW Ridge 02/11/2018

    Actually, the first clean winter ascent awaits; I rested on a couple pieces due to decrepitude!
  12. Trip: Chair Pk - NW Ridge Trip Date: 02/11/2018 Trip Report: More fun in winter I thought, especially with the amazing conditions. More alpine ice well adhered to the rock than I've ever seen in the Snoq area, neve even! Don, my long time climbing partner, and I had a blast in this puppy yesterday. The last 10' of the first pitch gaining the ridge was a good opener. The second pitch we traversed on the south side of the ridge up to a small notch with a chockstone, then up a short runout slab then a downward traverse to a small tree belay on the right. The third pitch went straight up to a steep hard (for me anyway) chimney topping out on the crest. Fantastic hooking! Running belay along the sharp crest and on to the top. I hope folks got out and got some in these incredible conditions! Left side of N face (yep, that's all good alpine ice and neve!): N Face route: 1st pitch top out: Don on runout slab (red dot), belay tree barely visible down and right: 3rd pitch: Looking down 3rd pitch top out: Running belay toward top: Gear Notes: Rock rack, no pins or screws needed Approach Notes: Casual, no floatation needed/wanted
  13. The Tooth speed record?

    Best I know of is my friend Scotty's sub 2 hour c2c. I bet Leor or the Haley alpinerope(less)gun could break 1.5 hrs.
  14. We stopped at the Beep for no particular reason; it made it a nice afternoon on the rock, in a bit of a whiteout. Definitely fun climbing. BTW, dig your TR!
