Mountaineering

Recommended Posts

Finally went on the Knife Edge on Katahdin today. Not scary although there were some narrow parts and ledges that could be dangerous, especially if they were wet.

Firescrew and Mount Cardigan in Alexandria, New Hampshire were amazing.

SO peaceful.

We were almost the only people there yesterday.

Much cooler out than it's been lately, very windy day with some slight precipitation, and plenty of dark clouds! :awesome:

Cardigan has been on my list for a while, so it was truly a dream come true.

Banff National Park. I was there today

I was at the top of the Gondola. You can walk up and Gondola down, vice versa or Gondola both ways. It sits at 7500 ft.

The hike up is ok. But the views at the top are spectacular.

Not exactly mountains but I recently visited the Cliffs of Moher here in Ireland. They are pretty breathtaking. At their highest point they are 700feet above the sea. These are the Cliffs of Insanity from The Princess Bride and were also in Harry Potter. Dusty Springfields ashes were scattered here.

This means you hate your life and are bitter and compensate by posting these pictures.  But if you were a "DJ" in a dirty podunk club, pictures of the bathroom would be okay.

Are you in Galway?

My wife got a piercing in Galway.

I got a tattoo in Donegal. My family traces back to there (although my actual family has no roots there. Mom is Dublin and dad is Kildaire)

Galway was fun. We stopped there before heading to Cork. Which was my favourite city in Ireland.

I have to ask - where did you get the tattoo in Donegal?

Euli Steck, probably the greatest (previously) living active mountaineer died last week. He allegedly fell 1 km down. I used to watch his speed assents of The Eiger on YouTube. I was totally shocked reading it. If anyone was unironically "surefooted as a mountain goat" it would have been him.

I hiked up Mt. Monadnock (Pumelly trail) for the first time. Somehow I came down the red dot trail but got back on track. Somehow came onto a private road with threatening messages but made it back to the car.

 

I used to get tired half way going up but running on weekends seems to help a lot.
