  1. I'm new to the PNW and looking for rock climbing and backcountry skiing partners. I have a rack and some experience with multipitch but rock is not my strong suit. I am a competent backcountry skier and snow / ice climber, but I don't have that gear up here right now. Based in Kirkland and soon to be in Olympia.
  2. Selling an essentially new pair of Grivel G12 New-Matic crampons for $100. These have never been worn outside and look like it. I can meet in the greater Seattle/Bellevue area and out I-90 a bit. Shipping is an option but I'd add that to the price of the crampons.
  3. I am selling a pair of lightly used La Sportiva Nepal EVO GTXs in size 43.5 (10.5) for $275. They have seen light climbing, most of which was on snow/ice and very little rock so they are in good shape with lots of tread/rand. They have the volume liner and a pair of green superfeet inside. I can meet in the greater Seattle/Bellevue area and out I-90 a bit. Shipping is an option but I'd add that to the price of the boots.
  4. Dear All, How partnering for Mt Rainier during July 18/9 - July 23 ? Hood, Adams, Jefferson, Olympus, Baker .... - or any more interesting peak between near Portland, Seattle and Vancouver. I'm from Europe, nowadays based in Oxford UK, visiting OHSU in Portland for business on July 17/18. Unfortunately I don't know any mountaineers in Pacific North West, so keen to team up ! I am comfortable to lead such climbs technically, with a reliable partner, but unfortunately won't have much time to do research for routes/maps. I'm experienced in both alpine and ski mountaineering, having done 40+ high altitude peaks of comparable/higher technical difficulty than Rainier between 14,000 and 24,000 feet, and practice crevasse and avalanche rescue almost every year. Member of Academic Alpine Club Zurich (AACZ). Good endurance - I have done up to 20 hour mountain routes and up to 16,000 uphill feet in one long day. Not as fit at the moment, but 7,000 feet uphill/day is still fine. Thanks, Vaclav

  10. 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?
  11. Looking for a Mentor!

    My name is Kiira and I am 20! I am a student at University of Puget Sound and I am looking for a mountaineering/alpine mentor. I'm originally from Colorado and have done a number of the fourteeners as well as a 45 day mountaineering expedition in Patagonia on the southern ice field. I just got off of Denali and I am more motivated then ever to improve my technical skills and get out as much as possible! Let me know if anyone would want to take me under their wing and show me the ropes!
  12. Climbing Partner

    I'm looking to do some day or half day weekend cragging or alpine routes within range of Kirkland. I've been climbing for 10+ years but with kids, I haven't got out much in the last few years. I'm good to lead up to 5.10a and have a rack and all the stuff. I also have a somewhat flexible work schedule so I could do weekday dawn patrols at Index or 32/38.

  16. Winter is only done on the calendar! I am just returning from a trip in the Alaska range, and am super stoked on big snowy, rocky, and icy alpine routes. I am currently unemployed and with only a few exceptions have the rest of April free. So I am free for mid week and longer trip too The routes looking at are: Cauthorn-Wilson, Watusi Rodeo, North Face Big Four, Gerber-Sinks, or anything else along those lines. Hit me up if you want to get out and climb!
  17. For Sale is a 30L Cilogear worksack in their indestructible Woven/Non-Woven Dyneema fabric.
