Steins Pillar
Yours truly on the summit of Steins Pillar following our climb of the Northeast Face....sportin' an El Cap rack (major overkill as it turned out)!! Given the lack of info. we had on this climb, went in loaded for bear. What is not showing is my home-made piton hammer (Home Depot sale item + duct tape + 1" webbing = a crappy piton hammer). This is looking roughly east (October 30, 2004).

Gosh, should we set up a SP donation fund for some new pants?! Just kidding. Looks like a cold, fun climb.

Thanks Dragger - yeah, I guess it's time to repair (or God-forbid retire!!!) my "lucky" pair of wind stoppers. An encounter with a sharp flake on this route seems to have sealed their fate!

....it was pretty cold!!



How did you enjoy your time in the Gorge - I think I have seen some new photos from the Gorge on "what's new" but don't recall if they were yours. Will check it out later today.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hey there,



Yes, thoroughly enjoyed our time in the Gorge. Because one of my closest friends lives in Hood River we tend to be up there quite a bit -- just love it. We just did some Gorge hiking this time: Dog Mtn and Chinidere. Can't wait 'till next time. :^)



I understand about the pants! Somehow I always seem to poke holes in mine the minute I strap crampons on. Ugh! Good luck with the "repair."

No-Radek doesn't have enough gear. He needs more! Lots more.

Thanks Aaron!

YES, I agree.......Mr. Santa, here's what daddy's gonna need:



a double portaledge w. fly, another set of Aliens, a haulbag, another piton hammer, a couple of 'em new fangled C4's (w. that crazy, orgas*ic smooth trigger action!), few more lost arrows, angles, and bugaboos, a belay seat..........

oh yeah, a pair of wind pants also.
