  2. I bought these boots a while back and put about 3 or 4 days of climbing into them. Unfortunately they were a bit too small so I ended up getting a larger size that fit better. These would be a great boot and a good price to the right home. Scarpa Phantom 6000 Size 42

  4. question Light alpine shoes?

    One of the biggest problems I come across climbing in the Cascades is finding an appropriate shoe to climb in. For my first year of alpine climbing, I mostly used high top, goretex hiking boots. This worked well on soft snow and glaciers - kept my feet dry, and were for the most part crampon compatible. When it came to the rock climbing portion of climbs though, I found them to be less than stellar, underperforming my climbing approach shoes and climbing shoes. I did end up switching into climbing shoes and carrying the boots in my bag, but ultimately wanted something that climbed snow and rock well. Following that, I started climbing in boulder x approach shoes. The boulder x mids are goretex and high top, so work well for keeping my feet dry, climb extremely well on rock, can hike for miles in them, and worked reasonably well with strap-on crampons. But now they're discontinued. I have a pair of mountaineering boots, but they don't walk very well, and I'm hesitant to wear them on a 20km+ hike so that they can perform well in snow / moderately on rock. So what are you all using for your alpine shoes? We live in such a limited market area of the world... need something that hikes well, is waterproof and mid/high topped, strap-on crampon compatible, and climbs well. Why La Sportiva discontinued the boulder x mid is beyond me, but any awesome replacements?
  5. These are brand new, never worn or used, still have the tags on them! Excellent condition, have been stored inside. Purchased these for some climbs that ended up not happening, now they are yours for a great deal! Looking to get $400 obo. Local to Seattle, if you need shipping, $425. Accept venmo or paypal. The Spantik is a double boot designed for cold, high altitudes environments. This step-in crampon-compatible boot excels on steep terrain without sacrificing walkability. The thermo-molded inner boot and one-handed closure system provide insulation and convenient lacing.
  6. I'm on the road and planning so spend late June and most of July in the PNW. I already have plans to ski Rainier with a friend, but besides that I would be down for any skiing or Alpine climbing. I'm available all week and pretty flexible with traveling. I have AIARE 1 and companion rescue. 10+ years experience sports, big wall and Alpine climbing. Have crevasse rescue training as well. I have all my gear including full rock rack with me. Let me know if you are interested.

They are perfect for snow shoeing, skiing or any other winter activity. They're also backed by a lifetime warranty. If you rip them for any reason outdoor research will replace them for free. 140.00
  14. Trip: Cody FAs + Bozeman Ice Festival Date: 12/7/2009 Trip Report: Summary: 12/4: PDX -> BZN; solo laps on G1 12/5: The Fat One, Magically Delicious and The Good Looking One w/ Drew, Pete and Dana 12/6: Get Bryan @ airport; drive to Cody and climb first 2 of Broken Hearts with Bryan 12/7: First Ascents of In a Silent Way (4p; WI4), Ice Bender (1p; WI4) and Hatebags Welcome (1p; WI3) with Bryan and Doug 12/8: Rest day; drive back to Bozeman 12/9: Rest/taper before comp: climb Palisade Falls with Bryan and Ryan 12/10 The Mammut Hyalite Ice Breaker Pro Invitational Competition (9 hours/10 routes/11 p) with Pat Wolfe. RIP Guy Lacelle 12/11: White Zombie and Thin Chance with Doug 12/12: The Big Sleep Aaron and Doug 12/13: BZN -> PDX Details: Given the events that transpired during this trip I struggled with writing this trip report. On one hand I had an awesome trip: 3 first ascents in one of my favorite ice climbing destinations with 2 of my favorite partners as well as sneaking up an Alex Lowe test piece the day before I had to drive home. On the other hand the death of Guy Lacelle: one of the humblest, strongest forefathers of this very sport. Both ends of the stoke spectrum unfortunately. I tried to keep the blabber to a minimum. Some pics: Pete looking good on The Good Looking One: Bryan on Broken Hearts. Given the temps that day Frozen Hearts would have been more appropriate First Ascents: Two years ago Bryan and I made the trek up Deer Creek to give Bitches Brew a go. We climbed the first two pitches but bailed given the condition of the 3rd pitch. Before returning to the car we opted to hike up the drainage just a little further just to see what we see. Not even 20 minutes up the drainage we spotted what appeared to be a few pitches trying to form. We asked Aaron Mulkey about it... he hadnt climbed it before but wasnt sure if someone else had and encouraged us to ask Stan Price about it. At the 2008 Ice Breaker Bryan and I cornered Stan and were stoked to find out no one had climbed it yet. A month after the Ice Breaker Bryan and I found ourselves back in Cody ready to return to Deer Creek. Unfortunately for us we found bad avy conditions and opted to bail. Our attempt would have to wait until next year. Unfortunately conditions a year later werent much better. Though the avy was safe the predicted high for that day was -2 F. When we left the car it was -14 F. Doug, my partner from AK, was in Cody so Bryan and I invited him along. Suck it up butter cup Return to Deer Creek We made good time and about two hours later were looking at this: unclimbed! Bryan on Pitch 1: Following pitch 1: Much to our delight another pitch awaited and Doug gladly led pitch 2. Doug on Pitch 2: At the top of pitch 2 we got really stoked... not only did our climb continue up the drainage but in the same amphitheater were 2 other ice climbs. We opted to follow the multipitch line as we didnt know how many more pitches awaited hoping we could snag the other two lines on the way down. We soloed an easy WI2 Soloing the third pitch: and found another pitch! John on pitch 4: Though Pitch 4 turned out to be the hardest pitch of the route it unfortunately was the last pitch that was formed for us so we immediately rapped and down climbed back to the 2 remaining unclimbed lines. Back in the amphitheater Bryan nabbed the center pillar... Bryan: ...and Doug led the final pitch of the day. Doug: All in all we climbed 3 new routes: a 4 pitch WI4, a single pitch WI4 and a single pitch WI3. Given the proximity to Bitches Brew we thought In a Silent Way was an appropriate name for the multipitch route. We named the center WI4 pillar Ice Bender in tribute to all the trips benders we've had in the past few years and lastly we named the WI3 Hatebags Welcome in honor of Doug's current residence Colorado. :laf: The next day Bryan and I rested and returned to Bozeman. The following day, the day before the comp, we took it easy and climbed Palisade Falls. Bryan on Palisade So the Ice Breaker... this was my second year and I was looking forward to another year of running around the canyon climbing as much ice as possible in 9 hours. I was paired with Pat Wolfe, a super strong local so I was stoked. Pat and I were assigned Twin Falls as the area we had to start in... we reached the base of Twin in 48 minutes from the parking lot After ticking Twin Right and Twin Left we worked our way to Unnamed Wall climbing Solstice, something between Solstice and Equinox, and Equinox. At Unnamed Wall we climbed Elevator Shaft, The Fat One, Magically Delicious, Jeff's Right, and The Thrill is Gone Pat on The Thrill is Gone: On the way back to the parking lot we ran into one of the comp organizers and learned about Guy's death and that the comp had been canceled. I'm not going to pretend I knew Guy well, unfortunately I turned down my chance to climb with him when I went to Cody earlier that week. That said he was one of the most humble, polite, kind climbers I have ever encountered. And best of all the dude crushed. He will be missed. RIP Guy. The following day Doug and I took it easy and played around on White Zombie and Thin Chance Doug: Saturday, my last day before having to drive home, I got to team up with Doug and another good friend of mine Aaron Mulkey for a run on The Big Sleep. "When fully formed The Big Sleep is as good as anything in CAN" JoJo After bringing Doug and Aaron up the initial pitch Doug stepped up to tackle the Alex Lowe 5.9R. He fired through the crux but broke a hold just short of the anchor. He hopped back on and sent Doug on pitch 2. I wish anyone who says 5.9 is easy would have to lead this pitch Aaron following the 5.9: he had to bare hand it Looking down midpitch following the 5.9 This brought us to the crux ice pitch... we didnt know what to expect... the book predicted somewhere between WI6 and 6+. Lucky for us Aaron leads Cody WI7 Aaron getting to the business: Aaron enjoying some spindrift midcrux: Looking up the pillar The pitch went much easier than I expected... we all agreed it would have been a 5+ in Cody, a 6/6+ in Colorado and unclimbed in WA :laf: Doug fired off the last pitch and took us to the ridge Doug on pitch 4: Aaron and I simul followed STOKE: BRAIN FREEZE! Love the spindrift! We tagged the top, rapped and hiked out for Epilogue: Though the passing of Guy was rough I still managed some great climbing with some great people. RIP Guy MANY MANY THANKS to JoJo, Coop, Greg/NLs, Barrel and everyone else that puts together such a great event as well as everyone that I got to climb with and/or meet this week!
