Hey Everyone. Looking forward to Saturday on Hood for some ice climbing. Let’s be ready to head up the mountain at 8:00 a.m. at the Timberline overflow lot (where we met for climb school). Bring the gear I asked you to bring earlier. Bring a lunch. It takes about 2 hrs to get up high on the White Water Glacier to where the good crevasses are, but it's a fairly easy hike. We’ll get out on the Glacier, talk about crampon technique, tools, anchors... then get to practicing and having fun. If you have tools you’d like to bring, feel free but I’ll bring 3 sets of tools so you can try different styles Any questions? Let me know. I’ll need volunteers to carry ropes and some gear My cell is ###-###-#### text me. Carpooling is highly recommended. See you Saturday morning! Let’s climb!

I was really looking forward to this and finally getting to come out and play with this group for the first time, but I’m not going to be able to make this one.

Hey friends. I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated you all being so enthusiastic and helpful yesterday. I’m ok. I’m sore but no obviously significant problems. I was impressed how efficiently you setup an anchor and worked the problem so quickly. I’m glad it was me that took a dell and not one of you. You were a great group. I’d feel confident climbing with you anytime. Take care!
