      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!

[TR] Mooses Tooth - Yet another TR for H&E 5/9/2010

Recommended Posts

Trip: Mooses Tooth - Yet another TR for H&E

 

Date: 5/9/2010

 

Trip Report:

Yet another H&E TR... but I live here so I can justify dealing with the :crazy: crowds.

 

[video:youtube]

 

Gear Notes:

1. Bring those stretchy things to clip onto the faster climbers.

2. Don't accept "tea" from descending Euros... chances are the "tea" is mostly liquor.

3. Canned beer will freeze in the Alaska Range.

 

Approach Notes:

A rough 200 yards from the LZ.

In other words you bought low alcohol piss water swill beer. Cans of Shapiro hold much better as they are slightly higher in alcohol. Plus they're bigger!!

Awesome video! It is great to see some logistics in Alaskan climbing. One day I will have the time, money, and skills to play with the big boys too.

 

GREAT WORK!

Thanks for all the compliments! ... one note:

 

 

It is great to see some logistics in Alaskan climbing.

 

Thanks to TAT and Puryear, logistics for the classic routes in the Ruth and Kahiltna are no longer a problem. I love scouring maps and exploring places no one goes to in Alaska - but it's a treat to thumb though Puryear's book and then just fly in and knock out a route or two.

BTW...

...beer cans ain't just for piss beer anymore.

Suppose this would make the alpine start a little difficult, though. :)
