      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!

seeking liberty ridge climbing partners

Recommended Posts

Looking to join a team to tick off Libridge this year... I almost climbed it a few yrs back. I have climbed rainier like 5 times (DC/Kautz/Emmons) and have attempted winter climbs of it (Gib Chute). Very safety minded and have great crevasse rescue skills. I can lead easy ice. I climb / backcountry ski/ rock climb mostly in the sierra. Have climbed mt baker and mt blanc. See my profile. I have climbed with some guys on this board too. Been climbing since 2001. Ideally we could shoot for a date in late April or early May then i could go up to seattle for a week to do it. Maybe we could do a conditioner hike up the Muir snowfield to get acquainted??? cheers david

Hi Ed

Thanks for the reply! Sorry i did not get back to you sooner, but i was out backcountry skiing with patty... the sierra is getting great snow this year.

 

so, that would be great if youre interested in climbing lib ridge! you mentioned ptarmigan ridge. i am also interested in ptarmigan ridge but would rather tackle liberty before ptarmigan. also, do you prefer climbing as a 2 person team or do you prefer 3 people? i think 3 is better than 2 for crevasse safety reasons, but i would be okay with a 2 person team if you feel strongly... so long as we discuss and dial-in the self-arrest+anchoring situation. fyi, i am outta work right now so my schedule is quite flexible but if i get a FT job, then i would likely (but not necessarily) have to cancel plans.

 

lets talk to on the phone to see if our interests align... kind regards, david valdes 626-437-8690

If you are interested in a 3rd climber I should be available to climb april and the first few weeks in may, as long as I don't find a job. Also, if you have whole week to climb Liberty ridge, I would be interested in doing some other climbs if time permits or conditions for the ridge are unfavorable.

I may be down for it if you're still looking for a 3rd. I've been on Rainier 2x so far on the DC route and have been wanting to tackle something a bit more challenging. I'm going to be on Rainier in June of this year anyways but 2 trips could be pretty sweet. Let me know so I can talk it over with my wife and since I have to fly from Texas.
