layton Posted May 26, 2006 Share Posted May 26, 2006 (edited) Since I've scrapped my idea for writting a guide, here are my ideas for other to pick up where my ambition left off. 1. A coffee table book of the ultra-mega classics of the North Cascades. -Big Colorful spreads of the peak/route -History and accounts, epics, anticdotes from climbers -A detailed topo -Including the big, important climbs, traverses, etc... 2. Ice guide that also includes SW B.C.'s alpine ice routes, like the Sumallo Cirque and Cheam Range!@!! 3. A "locals" guide to routes that either A) didn't make the beckey guide, nelson, or kearney cut B) are only given brief mention/beta in the becky guide This was my "unselected" guide I was thinking of doing. As many photos, maps, and topos as possible, stories, etc For #2 Here is the list of climbs that people have emailed me and I've thought of in no particular order. And, yes, I've included my routes too. -Elephant Head -Ptarmagin Traverse (w/maps,pics) -+New routes on Baring -Infinate Bliss -Davis Peak Routes -+S.Picket's Traverse -NF of +McMillan and *Inspiration -SW Pk Bonanza Russian Rt -+*Goat Wall Routes in Mazama -Burgundy +NE & *E face routes -*Chablis E Face -*WA pass traverse -*Mox -*Back of Beyond Buttress -+Darin Berdinka and Dru's routes in the Anderson Range -*Mythic Wall in the Sisters -*Boola Boola Buttress Routes -Lots of the shorter routes in the Enchantments -*Acid Baby on Asguard Pass -+NE side dragontail new routes -+Gato Negro on Silverstar -*Mox E.Face -*Carlos Rossi Memorial Tower -+Bomber Buttress in Cuthroat Lake -State Crag routes -+The Snout -Routes on *+Illumination Rock and the +Black Spider on Hood -NE Buttress on Dragontail -+Routes in the Cathedrals -The colorado route on Castle Peak -+Tokatie Lake Wall -Swiss Peak skoog rt -*Davis Holland/Lovin Arms Index -*Beacon Rock-young warriors -Memorial Pillar in Neswatcht -Routes on Judge Howay -+Yellow Brick Rd-marble canyon -Routes on pt 7002 -Rampage on -+Stellar Eclipse on Silverstar -N.Ridge Mt Blum -N Ridge mt Cheval -N.Ridge on that granite peak just next to Buck Mtn -+Twin Sisters Travese -Stuart Range Traverse -+classics on Exfoliation Dome -Route on Squire Creek Wall -+Green Dragon at Index -Forbidden pk NW Face -Dragontail Gerber/Sink & Boving, & Dragonfly, +pete/rolf's route -North Ridge Eldorado -Mt Olympus -Whatcom Peak -Columbia, Keyes, Monte Christo -Entiat Traverse -+Heavens Gates 5.11b Index Upper Town Wall 4-6 pitches -Upper 8-mile buttress -Condomorphine -+Entiat Icefall -+NE Face of Mesachie glacier/icefall/4th class ridge -+Backslide Buttress on Gamuza -+W Butt of Old Settler -+Index Golden Arch -*Zig Zag mt Eerie -East Face mt Colonol foster on van cuv island -+Labor Day Rt on NEWS -McNaught Pk N.Face -Victory Ridge Mt Adams -Mowich Face and Curtis ridge Rainier -*Yak Check -*zebra zion, wherever i may roam, w.face var monkey face, smith rock traverse, christian bros traverse, aid line on picnic lunch wall at smith rocks -*Castle Dome NF, Eface, Mt Hubris rts, and Plumbline at castle crags this was just a list of some of my ideas, and some emails I've gotten.
