Re: thanks

Thanks a lot for the nice words. A fun area to play around in so close to home.

Great read!

If we ever seriously get into snow/ice, would love to do Chair (probably the easier route though :).

Enjoyed the read, esp "nasty section of thin sugar snow on smooth slab".....heh, heh - sounds like fun ;)

Nice job Martin!

Re: Great read!

Thanks a lot! It's a fun place to climb in the winter with the short approach and steep terrain. Yeah, the NEB or NF have trees on them which definately eases the mind a bit when it comes to protection.

Nice trip

Looks like a fun trip, nice job Martin & Bruce! Clear but very cold weekend, we were in the Goat Rocks backcountry skiing and despite the sun the snow never softened, good conditions for you guys but must not be fun to follow the downhill traverse without pro...
Isn't east face of Chair an ok rock route in summer?

Re: Nice trip

Thanks man. Yes, it is a rock route in the summer, rated II 5.6 I believe.

Re: Great TR


Thanks a lot for the nice comments. Yeah, the rock on Chair is not exactly confidence inspiring, much better when frozen together. :-)

Great report

Just saw this one, Martin. Great report and photos - way to get out there and take advantage of the clear skies (and sub-zero temps!). Nice job on the route - thanks for posting!

Great TR and Photos

Wish I had something like this one hour from where I live! Photos are great and really help tell the story.

Thanks for the great read

Looks like it was a fun climb & a great day in the hills! Could you maybe scale down the photos the next time, though? They're great & a lot won't fit onto my screen at once, which is a bummer.

Looks like a beautiful day and an enjoyable climb. Wish it were snowing here in the southwest!
