      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!

Partner Needed Alaska - Foraker - Have Permit

Recommended Posts

Hi:

 

May be seeking replacement partner for Foraker in late May/early June in Alaska. I've been there before and have all the gear needed. Prefer someone with expedition experience, though not absolutely required. I have climbed in Alaska, Oregon, Washington, Peru 4-5 times, Argentina, and planning Equitor and Bolivia.

 

Want to climb SE Ridge of Foraker. Going over Crosson is not a favorite option.

 

respond to:

 

kevin@chernofflaw.com

 

Regards

 

Kevin

Kevin,

 

Perhaps I'll see ya on Foraker. Three Portland climbers are leaving on 5/31 for AK. First stop is to climb/acclimizing on Foraker. Then rest up

and head for Denali's W Rib.

 

Look for the Red Eyed White Boys

Which route are you doing on Foraker?

 

You doing the entire west rib or the "riblet" (a.k.a upper west rib)?

We'll see you on our way down. We are three doing the Full Rib alpine style starting May 18. "Alpine style" is a relative term in Alaska. No double carries and no sled. Can you say hemeroid?

We only did one double-carry on the West Butt (acclimitization carry from 14 to 16). We used one sled. That was a BAD idea. If I had it to do all over again. . .

 

I guess you won't be taking a lot of beer with you.

 

See ya in Talkeetna. Look for the pink "action" suit.

rbw1966/Kevin,

 

We are climbing the Sultana on Foraker. Foraker is primarily an acclimization climb. Our ultimate goal is a fast and light ascent of Denali's W Rib from the NE Kahiltna fork. The pre-acclimization will eliminate numerous days off the Rib climb and cut many pounds of food and fuel from the packs.

 

Watch out for the Red Eyed White Boys

Pink action suits and red-eyed white boys? I think I see a theme developing here.

No beer. Just gu. This isn't Montana. They won't even let me bring my sheep.
