Nice route overview

Good photo Radek. I have to say, I prefer the warm sandstone shots, too! But at least it looks like you did an interesting route - much better than the south side slog!

Re: Nice route overview

Thanks Jim!

It WAS pretty fun actually!

We met Haydar at Timberline at 2am before we started - apparently he too is into this Hood masochism... :)

Re: Nice route overview

Yeah we were commenting on what a weird subculture we all belong to - meeting up with friends at 3am in a cold, windy, rainy Timberline parking lot. Fun!

Re: Nice route overview

Hey man if it wasn't for your news that the upper mountain was clear we were about to bail but what else can you do at Tline at 2-3 am in the morning :) Was nice to see you up there, great shots of a cool looking route, sure beats the south side.

Re: Nice route overview

Hey Haydar,

Thanks man.

No need to thank me - I know how much you love climbing that mountain and route :)

Ditto here - was good to run into you up there (middle of night at the socked in Timberline L.) - good to see we're not the only ones with mental issues :)
