What size is this? How many big cams would I need to borrow/acquire? Additional thoughts welcome.

No trouble with access any of climbs. You should be able to take a cart of golf to String Shoe and Lost in Clouds. Lost in Clouds of Sun will require 20 minute hike, with ropes of static railings though.

ps lucky: not all people do things "to say that I am good…"  they just do things because they like to do it….  also, years ago i lived in newark, nj; at the time the "murder capital of the US…" so i feel your pain…

I think that many people have an ethic and few climb just to say....  My text was more in reference to tradmanclimbz post on "its the line not the style".  when you don't care about the style, you dont care about the ethic



Wow. I read this. I understood it.

Bashie in rock like nuts in wedge. I had my nuts in my hand the other day. I put them in wedge crevice, I fell. So I grabbed bigger nuts.

Events & Announcements / Alaska Range Slideshow at IME Saturday, August 8!
« Last post by nickA on Yesterday at 08:39:58 PM »
Hi all,

Will you be around North Conway on Saturday, August 8? If so, please consider joining us at International Mountain Equipment at 7:00PM for a slideshow titled "Everyman's Alaska Range," featuring incredible climbs that are within the reach of many a "mere mortal" climber!

I've spent the past six Spring seasons climbing and bailing (too-often the latter) off of many peaks in the Alaska Range. After a dozen expeditions - and despite a lot of guiding on Denali - I've come to really love sharing my passion for this incredible place with others. A lot of people think that a trip to Alaska is too big of an undertaking for them, or that it's only filled with AI7 R horror shows from the magazines. My skinny arms, wimpy persona, and empty wallet are living proof that you don't have to be a hardman to have an awesome time on huge Alaskan peaks.

So please, come join us for some cool photos, funny stories, and the beta on how you can do it all yourself! Admission is 7 bucks, but I can assure you that it's all going towards getting my trusty Astro van back on the road.

Climbs featured will include Mt. Huntington, the Mooses Tooth, a few lines on Denali, and more.

Thanks, I hope to see you there!
-Nick

Call 603.356.7064 IMCS guide service. They have a great group of guides, talk to Brad White as he runs this school. George at one time was the head guide at this store.

They definitely do! George also guided for EMS for 20+ years. But I'll put in a plug here for hiring Charlie Townsend, currently of Synnott Guides:

He carries the same laid back awesome-ness that makes me glad I've been lucky enough to learn from both of them.

Whether you go out with Charlie, or one of the guides from IMCS, I'm sure you'll have an awesome day on the slabs!
