      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Exactly after a night of drinking, smoking and a nice breakfast. But could he do it after 3 days of humping loads and winter camping? He might, but he also might not want to put up with that kind of bullshit.

I'm sure some no name guy could do it, but I seriously doubt anyone looking for a ski partner on a BB a week before the trip could.

But if he did I'll be the first to buy him a beer. [big Drink]

I dont know you go ask him. He has skied some burly shit. I dont think many chestbeaters here could keep up. I really do think he would not haul any loads. Pretty sure his style would be to marathon it during good weather\conditions.

Whatever it is alll speculation.

Whatever. He has skied bigger mountains with steeper faces in the Can Rockies... I think it can be done. Lots of people are in great shape. Just because you cannot do it does not mean some other person cannot.

Oh I've heard of people doing 12,000' days, and I've heard of people skiing long distances, but not both.

You are right there are some steep faces in the CR that would put Buckner to shame.

2 days it is then. cool.gif" border="0

I bet your buddy wouldn't post on the BB first though. He'd probably just go do it.

I dont think he has a computer or that he would waste his time driving for that peak. Lots more snow where he lives. wink.gif" border="0 Fuck you cant even get the guy to be at home to answer his phone. Even his wife never knows where he is at.

In the right conditions, I suppose the east chute could be skiied "no problemo." I wouldn't say that about the west chute. But that's assuming you magically appear on the top with your skis and not a big pack. But you WON'T do that unless you have a helicopter. So if someone skis the North Face of Buckner in winter, I'll call him "bad ass" because it WILL be a "bad ass" trip!

Phil, that so called Grade 4 or 5 ice flow is about the same angle as the right side of the canmore junkyards which we use to practice one tool french technique on. If you took a picture looking up a grade 5 all you would see is about the first 30 feet of the first tier. You need to buy a new tomtom. Your old one is getting worn.

Actually I think Troy lives closer to Weigele land doesn't he? Copious snowfall there. Not the eastern Rockies type which has been known from time to time to periodically resemble maritime snow levels. Oh well I'm not going to ski Buckner so what do I care. Bored....

If someone carries my pack and my pasty-white butt to the top of Buckner I’ll do the north face in a plastic saucer.

Incidentally, about 15 years ago, I tried to coax several helicopter outfits to deposit a partner me in the Park for a similar winter project. In addition to the deterrent of committing a Federal offense, none were interested for business reasons either. As one operator put it, “I bill $50,000 in work for the Park Service every year. Why would I want to jeopardize all of that for a dirtbag climber and $500?”

Nice TR Phil! Congrats on a good climb. looks like lots of nice ice up there! How far of a sled ride is it into that zone, how long was the approach? Just curious. Might have to go back and get that other pitch! Doesn't look like huge slopes up above the ice, but enough to cause some fright eh!
