This reminds me of an unforgettable trek with my father 25 years ago. The highest altitude I have ever climbed up to - approximately 15,000 ft. I accompanied him during one of his geological survey trips to the Himalayas. He is an archaeologist and a geologist. The destination was a glacier called "Shalang" that he and his colleagues were studying during that time. It took us a total of 9 days and we stayed at the glacier for 3 days. My father and his team studied the glacier while I totally enjoyed the effects of the local brew, 20 liters of which we carried with us all the way to the top (well, not all of it made it up there and none of it made it back ).

I dont remember much now but after a certain altitude, there is virtually no vegetation so there is nothing you can burn to cook. I remember one of the porters carried a propane tank and we purchased a couple of goats on our way up that became our food for 3-4 days while we were up there.

The views were unbelievable but unfortunately I have no pictures of the whole trip. I googled and found the coordinates of where we might have been. I think this is +/- 2 miles of where we must have camped:

https://www.google.com/maps/place/30%C2%B015'40.6%22N+80%C2%B006'48.1%22E/@30.269278,80.1363594,22753m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0x0

I am also looking at Humphreys Peak.

Humphreys Peak : Climbing, Hiking & Mountaineering : SummitPost

I've gotten myself some good hiking shoes, some pants, shirts, and jackets from Eddie Bauer. I am currently looking at tents and other camp gear, along with good rain gear.

I am planning Guadalupe Peak sometime late this year. May be Humphreys in early 2016. I have been hiking some small trails here in Texas, not as much elevation, but good distances. 8, 10, 15 mi. This is one of those things you have to stop talking and thinking about and just get out there and start doing.

But be smart, research, read, and watch youtube videos. A lot of these peaks have good video that can give you an idea of what to expect.

Thirty-five years ago today, Mount St. Helens exploded with the force of about 1,600 atomic bombs. The eruption reduced the mountain's elevation by 1,300 feet and killed 57 people.

This is a look from the top of Guadalupe Peak, looking down at El Capitan. I have the gear, and been training to hike this March of next year. My goal is to do it before my 30th bday in July. It is an 8.4 mile hike with 3000 ft elevation gain, takes aprox 6-8 hrs to complete.

I have been walking / running 5-10 miles every few days for the last few months and intend on doing it every day in the coming months to get ready for this.

That is hyper-awesome.

Not awesome enough to make me want to climb anything, mind you, but it sure is awesome.

Thanks.

Bob.

Half Dome history: “The Yosemite South Dome is the noblest rock in the Sierra, and George Anderson, an indomitable Scotchman, has made a way to its summit.” — John Muir, writing in the San Francisco Bulletin shortly after Anderson became the first person to climb Half Dome (then called South Dome), 140 years ago this month.

a nice view at 2679 meters (8789 feet) over the Mannheimer Hütte in the Austrian Alps. The picture is from a weekend trip my wife and I made in 2014. It was really nice, we had walked over the Brandner Glacier.

Not quite as dramatic as El Capitan but I'm going to hike this little volcano near Medellin this Sunday. Nothing by Andes standards but small steps back to fitness..

Google pano is interesting.. butterflies.

Literally a blast from the past I just remembered my aunt ringing our house to say she was ok. She was a nun living ~20 miles away. I answered the phone and it was the first time I heard her voice.

I visited Mt St Helens in July on vacation. A remarkable experience.










The downed trees on the ridge are from the blast, they are left as a reminder of the eruption.

Great pics.

Nature can be beautiful, but also very scary.

Yeah thanks tturner86

We will not forget our Swiss fellow from Ringgenberg Bern Switzerland, who died much too young.
He was indeed a rare species in the mountains making world records in a row
mostly in single attempts without oxygen and rope.
Special thoughts also to his wife Nicole (who is passionate climber) and the parents of Ueli.
His body will be buried in Nepal - the place he loved so much.

He was indeed a rare species in the mountains making world records in a row
mostly in single attempts without oxygen and rope.
Special thoughts also to his wife Nicole (who is passionate climber) and the parents of Ueli.
His body will be buried in Nepal - the place he loved so much.

Such a sad day, another good man lost in the mountains. I meet him last year at an American Alpine Club presentation in Seattle. Such a good soul.

After 3 day buddhist ceremony and incineration of the body - one part of the ashes left in Himalaya.
The other part is taken by the family to have another final ceremony in Switzerland with the friends
of Ueli.
Thoughts are with the family and friends

Another day and another climber down.

Mt. Hood climber dies after falling near summit | OregonLive.com

Hogsback on Hood is no joke. Also closer you get to June the more dangerous Mt Hood becomes.

We spent today taking out some 25-year-old bolts from a couple of 5.10 routes in Rattler Gulch in western Montana. We replaced the manky old bolts and hangers with 1/2" glue-in bolts that should be good for another 25.

A great give-back to the climbing community day, but damn, it was hard work.




That's me with the drill hanging off my harness. Long day in the saddle.

Mosedales news seem to be false. As Sherpa Pasang Tensing who was already 11 times on Everest Summit describes
after a new climbing this week - the Hillary Step is still there.

Another news from Everest about "four bodies found on 7950 meters in a tent" looks like fake news.
6 sherpas were on the way to search a body of a climber at the south saddle told that they have found 4 bodies in a tent.
But now this is not sure either.

Everest stories within mass tourism!

PS: watch those 2 pics of the Summit - NOTHING can be seen really (different angle, different distance...)

I went to Annapurna base camp 3 years back. It was a nice trek in the Himalayas.

I have now moved to Portland. This is still on my agenda. Would love to hike up and camp at Illumination Saddle and watch the sunset from there.
