Dave: I might actually make the trek south for that... :twisted:

But in the meantime, plenty of stashes up here (on the way to Duck Lake back in August):

One should attempt to keep the origin of one's beer the same as the country in which one climbs. Campo Noche, Picacho del Diablo, Baja California, Mexico.

My Mountaineering Beer Story

We were climbing a big wall in the Great Gorge of Alaska and had run out of alcohol. We noticed the bush pilots flying up and down the Gorge every day, so we stamped "BEER" in big letters in the snow for the bush pilots to see:

The Great Gorge

After the big wall, we went back base camp near the landing strip. Out bush pilot, K2 Aviation, had placed a case of Buckhorn beer in our tent!
