Ice & Winter Climbing / Re: Excretions
« Last post by tradmanclimbz on January 02, 2017, 10:05:17 PM »
It's winter time. no excuse to use TP. snow  ball is natural and  super clean. take a hike off the trail and do your thing. no harm no fowl. cleaner for the envornment that useing a manufactured bio bag that then goes in a landfill. Those things are nessicary for places like the upper saddle on the grand but not needed most places in the whites INMOP. just be cool and go far enough into the woods.

seems like a darn fickel climb.  Seems like it rarely stays in for more than a week or two and often just a few days.....

A couple years ago some heathen had a shit ON Pegasus.  It wasn't a tidy little pile, but a furious explosion.  It really took away from the climb.

Ice & Winter Climbing / Excretions
« Last post by lukeweiss on January 02, 2017, 03:09:53 PM »
Today, after topping out on a lovely run up LHMW and the Cleft, just before the junction with the Willard trail, we noticed, about 2 steps off the trail, a big ol turd or two with dirty toilet paper, just sitting there, left lonely in situ by its hopefully repentant owner.

Then, on the Willard trail, twice in about 15 feet there was piss right on the side wall of the snow-packed trail.

Just thought I would throw this "that's not cool" post up in the vague and remote hope that the owners of the turd(s) and trail piss might reconsider doing so the next time they are out in our beautiful woods and mountains.

It really isn't difficult to bring a blue bag if you know you are one who cannot wait 30 minutes to sit on a toilet down at the Highland Center, or take a few steps off the trail to pee.

Other than that, today was an absolute stunner, and the ice was hero-licious.

Good job! I don't know as it gets much fatter these days.. seems like if you want to climb Omega you kind of have to do it in those conditions?

Where is the "retarded" button? I'm asking for a friend...

LOL...


I could add negative ones, but that gets too weird. I remember the karma thing here a couple of years ago.

Ha ha - I forgot about the karma thing. Some of us can't help ourselves. You're a good sport Al!

Here's a shout out to some of Ice Fest's hometown heros - the guides of IMCS - International Mountain Climbing School! These guys are as dialed as they come when it comes to all things winter in New Hampshire. They are a fantastic bunch of climbers, skiers, and mountain lovers. Read a bit about Sam Bendroth, Zebulon Jakub, and Paul McCoy at http://www.mwv-icefest.com/2017/01/02/imcs-guides/.
