So, now the dog is missing?


With snow conditions, and grass conditions, like that I suspect we could get a pooch posse formed in no time to go looking... Crossfitter could carry a keg, it'd be worthwhile.

Plenty of water for the hot tub, too.

My brother and I are interested, but we have a few questions.

Is there a special piece of gear I should bring for this hike? Like cramp-ons or a shovel or an ice pick? Whatever you can think of that you would definitely bring.

We're new to hiking 14er's specifically, but we are no stranger to intense hikes and bivouacs. I am a former Army Ranger with heavy outdoors experience and knowledge...and my brother in law was born and raised in the high Rockies, so please save us the unnecessary parental advice and please stick to the stuff we need to know if you feel like chiming in.

if you have the right equipment you can do it. a good friend of my boyfriend and mine, camillo, he's climbed K2 3 times and my boyfriend is working on a website for him...he payed my boyfriend with a tent that costs like 3,000$ or around there, it's ridiculous, it can handle like sub zero temps and seriously high winds.

we've yet to use it and honestly i don't know what's it called i just remember my boyfriend going on and on about this tent.

however buying all the right equipment might become more expensive than just getting a hotel room.

That's more times than most people have climbed K2, but do you know if he ever continued on to capitol summit?

He wasn't old but had nice white hair. Anyway, I like this shot and thought the owner might like it as well. If he wants to claim it I can send him a full size image. Ah, loving the snow lately but looking forward to summer hikes.



So still nobody recognizes this guy???

maybe he said twice, i could be wrong, but i am not wrong about the fact that he is an amazing climber.

he is gearing up to do everest next spring.

and he did give us a super expensive tent...again i CLEARLY stated i don't the detailed specs about it but my boyfriend is neither a liar or an exaggerator so i know it's an amazing tent that we could NEVER afford.

camillo gets all of his equipment pro-form.

don't insult the great camillo....it WILL come back to haunt you on the mountain.

You cannot stay on the summit forever; you have to come down again. So why bother in the first place? Just this: What is above knows what is below, but what is below does not know what is above. One climbs, one sees. One descends, one sees no longer, but one has seen. There is an art of conducting oneself in the lower regions by the memory of what one saw higher up. When one can no longer see, one can at least still know. - Rene Daumal
