So I'm still on the mend. My mind is willing my body foreward to do stuff I probably shouldent. But its summer damn it and its time to snap out of it. Have to weigh the benefits of mental health after a while of not getting out.
So I was pretty worn out after Eagle, but then went on a big slog this past weekend up the Burns Glacier near portage to try to climb baird peak. Intresting group dynamics, slushy snow and
Portage weather made for a long day. Tired, a coughing me again...
So what else is going on... I finally finished my pants. Gore-tex XCR, water proof zippers, seam taped and all. I figure they ran me about $70 in materials to make and they came out totally sweet. Here is my model shot...
and another .. oh yeah pure fabric goodness... eat your heart out arc-teryx
In two weeks from now Brook and I are heading to do Liberty ridge on My Rainier after Eric & Tracy's wedding http://www.tracy-eric.com/ Looking foreward to it!
So here is Liberty Ridge, its a classic Alpine climb of the Cascades. I'm Psyched for it but nervous about my health. Its odd when that is the thing to be worried about when planning a climb like this but its true, The actual climbing should be straight foreward, I can deal with weather, whiteouts and cravasses better than lung clogging phlem balls and sore knees.
Enough for now. if anyone has a vacciene for monster phlem balls let me know.
