  1. [TR] Mt. Rainier- Fuhrer Finger 6/24/2005

    Sorry for the late post and resulting worthless beta, but yes back when we were on the Finger it was consistent and very skiable.
  2. Sleeping Pads...Mt. Heardwear & Thermarest

    Did you sell that thermarest pad? Barry
  3. Mt. Persis-Index traverse

    4)I wouldn't recommend dscending the Lake Serene route if you have not been up it. Hiked up the "original" trail up to the lake a couple weeks ago just for nostalgia's sake. Was wondering how many people remember how epic this short route can be, especially on the decent. Also who's been in the mines at the end of the abandoned road? I bivi'd in them once when I was about 15........damn creepy. BTW a new trail carves up the slope to the east of Bridal Veil Falls now.
  4. Missing party on LR

    Don't forget some "canned wheat". That's the secret to being extreme.
  5. A new low in rock climbing

    Bouldering is like masterbating...............it feels good but you really don't want your friends to know.
  6. A new low in rock climbing

    Bouldering "might" be real climbing for some people, but come on you know deep in your adolescent heart that you really want to move on the something bigger, and you probably will.............when you can afford to buy a rope.
  7. Death on Gib route

  8. Ingall's Peak/Basin Beta

  21. missing skier at alpental

    2 years ago I spent a night out above Paradise after getting disorientated coming off the Muir snowfield, I had no gear and temps of 12 degrees. I learned to always take H2O proof matches, a small tarp or bivi sac, and extra dry fleece gloves. Of course if Dan was alpine skiing he wouldn't be expected to anticipate being in the backcountry. My skull hat's off to this guy. This guy Dan is a hard-ass to the 10th degree, holy shit the mind games he must have endured to keep dealing with those conditions...........BTW how in hell could anyone cover those distances and elevation gains/losses in alpine gear? Sure AT or Tele, but alpine? Looking forward to more info........... Welcome home Dan!
