Hiker with sprained/broken ankle 1.5 miles up La Luz. Litter hike out through slippery, spiky, rocky terrain. In field at 10:30, out at 12:15. Good AMRC turn out.

Scrimmage with Lovelace 
Sunday, August 21, 2011, 03:59 PM - Weekend Fun
Posted by Administrator
I played my first bit of semi-competitive soccer today since my ski injury in January. Felt pretty good even with the tight/pulled hamstring, rolled ankle, and tweaked knee. And as a bonus, I got to bike up to ADO only to find the fields full, so we drove down to Sandia Prep. A nice 7 mile warm up and 8 mile cool down with 90 degree heat.

AMRC Mission #2

A lead climber took a 60 foot whipper in Chimney Canyon on Muralla Grande or Clandestine Wall... I don't really know. By the time Nate and I got up there we could hear the helicopter evac'ing the patient. Certainly was a nice day though.

I got to go on my first AMRC mission on Sunday. 18 year old male broke leg up from Embudo TH. I led Team 3 and set up and ran the first low angle lower. Great team response and the patient was out in 2 hours!

Posted by Administrator
Kevin got me climbing in upper La Cueva Canyon again today. We did a fantastic line up The Thumb. Three 60' technical pitches at an average of 1 pitch/hour and then a long ridge simul-climb to the summit to beat the storms. Hit the trail at 12:30 just as the first crash of lightning struck.

6:40am in the parking lot.
8:00am roped up and ready to climb.
11:00am switched to simul-climbing.
12:00pm summit.
12:30pm hiking La Luz
1:00pm sleet and rain
2:00pm beers at Kevin's place.

4:00pm HHH event in the foothills near Central and Tramway with Kelly.

7:30pm BBQ at Jeanne's with Kelly.

White Mesa Loop

Did a lap around White Mesa this morning with Mike. Nice time out since we beat the heat. Only 8.5 miles with some moderate technical challenges. The real fun is that if you fall, you aren't going to stop for a while.

We've got some hot, dry weather hitting us now. The only time to get out and ride (which is all that's allowed now due to the fire closures) is bright and early. Did 36 miles with Nate around town this morning.

Mt. Hood 
Saturday, July 2, 2011, 09:30 AM - Trips
Posted by Administrator
Had a great climb of Mt. Hood on June 24-25. The notoriously consistent cloudy weather broke for Nate and I as we drove down from Seattle and managed to gain 1000 ft before setting up the tent. Lots of snow catting here for the ski area. Up at 2:00am and climbing by 2:40am. The wind was brutal in the night and we had to take time to set up a wind break for the tent and make sure that Nate's hands had fresh hothands. We made quick time and passed a few guided groups. The shrund was easily traversed around and the final pitch was steep, but not steep enough to warrant roping up - the falling person would just drag more people down the steep, icy mountain. Nate and I managed to get up easily and we carefully walked over to the summit along the ridge. 6:30am on top. Summit beer of choice was a New Belgium Trippel. Took time on the way down and watch the Olympic ski team training on the glacier.

Seattle 
Wednesday, June 22, 2011, 02:48 PM - Trips
Posted by Administrator
All I know about Seattle is what I new originally: they're big on fixies, starbucks, and REI. ...and the REI isn't all that impressive either. Sure it's got a forest around it, and there's a mountain biking path and a climbing gym, but they didn't have AT boots. What kind of self-respecting flagship store is that?

After a very long day at work, it's horrible to be confronted with a 20 mph head wind and thick, suffocating smoke. AZ is on fire and Albuquerque gets screwed.

So a couple guys in a beater low rider flipped me off, yelled at me, and then hit me with something off my helmet in the back of my head. I got the Nebraska license number and filed a police report. Maybe something will come of it, maybe not.
