Maybe I can find the motivation to ski this weekend. tarkman1 replied to the topic Mt Emerson – 4/11/09 in the forum Trip Reports 12 years ago mt emily dickenson southeast chute? Bishop? I don’t know that one. I’ll have to check with my sources to see if Dave’s trying to throw us off track. Nice shots. I was too busy skiing one of the big faces out of June. Blasting Wood’s East face main gully in a near non-stopper (stopped to check the choke) was fun. Looks like good snow was to…[Read more] tarkman1 replied to the topic 2009 Cali Split Party Photos and Stories Thread in the forum Trip Reports 12 years ago 1) Coke chute? I suppose I didn’t miss much (except being tense and nervous) by not climbing up the final section Coke on Saturday when it was shaded about 3pm. 2) Wasabi? Nevahbe. I was wondering if anyone was going to hit that. Great big lines. tarkman1 replied to the topic 2009 Cali Split Party Photos and Stories Thread in the forum Trip Reports 12 years ago I headed up Morrison on Sunday. I was planning initially to ski Little Morrison by skinning up Old Man’s. I packed light. Crampons and ice axe stayed behind. Sandwich? I was looking at a quick shot up and back. Three hours roundtrip. Easy. When I looked the lines off Little Morrison, I knew they wouldn’t soften. They just weren’t getting…[Read more] tarkman1 replied to the topic Dawson Pk. San Gabriel Mtns. 3.28.09 in the forum Trip Reports 12 years ago I was out on Mt Baden-Powell yesterday for my first SoCal b/c experience. The place has several good options. Some of them might not last beyond a couple of weeks without some hiking down and out. tarkman1 replied to the topic OFFICIAL DATES FOR CALI SPLIT PARTY in the forum Splitboard Talk Forum 12 years ago I’ll be around Mammoth for the Split Party. I’m fine on a place to stay. Weather? If it’s nice, that means big lines. If it’s snowing, that means a longer season and April pow. Either is fine with me. tarkman1 replied to the topic Eastside Smackdown/Tahoe Redemption in the forum Trip Reports 12 years ago The two hour cell phone time shift. It’s more the norm in that area than the exception. I had that with Sprint and I think ATT/Cingular. I don’t get that with Verizon. Well, props to all who went out over the weekend. I stayed home. The latest storm should freshen things up nicely. tarkman1 replied to the topic 3/7/09 – Incredible Hulk left couloir in the forum Trip Reports 12 years, 1 month ago and I wanted to go to Kettle on Saturday with the intention of skiing the Hulk if it looked good…instead I was trumped and wound up going up fricking Horse Canyon (arr!!!) instead. tarkman1 replied to the topic East side views from February in the forum Trip Reports 12 years, 1 month ago I normally will strap my shell on the outside of the pack. I didn’t cinch it down well. The day was warm and I normally will skin in only a base layer. Truth be told, going up on Mt Walt just didn’t sit well with me after what happened a few years ago up there with the Mammoth patrollers. But my brother felt like skiing Walt, so off we went…[Read more] tarkman1 replied to the topic East side views from February in the forum Trip Reports 12 years, 1 month ago If you found the black and purple Marmot parka that I lost on Mount Walt last year, I want it back. Thanks for the pix. The area is looking fun. tarkman1 replied to the topic 5.3-5.4.2008 eastern sierra – black mtn. in the forum Eastside 12 years, 11 months ago Black Mtn. You beat me to it. Maybe next year. tarkman1 replied to the topic 4.19-20.2008 eastern sierra – trojan peak in the forum Eastside 12 years, 11 months ago I’ll play mediator. For those who don’t know, the route on George Creek is open for a month in the spring. April 15-May 15. Look at the dates on this TR. He was there pretty much as soon as you good. George Creek is a hell bush whack. There is no way around that. It’s a given. I’m sure fullers had to wade across a creek and cross about…[Read more] tarkman1 replied to the topic 4.26.2008 eastern sierra – university peak in the forum Eastside 12 years, 11 months ago Ha ha. Way to ski the best line on the mountain and blow off the ‘book line’. tarkman1 replied to the topic 4.13.2008 Eastern Sierra – BPC in the forum Eastside 13 years ago Slide Mountain tarkman1 replied to the topic Playing on the Plateau in the forum Trip Reports 13 years ago Good photos of a good area. Well, the little bit of snow last week wasn’t enough to cover up tracks put down from a week ago shown in the lookers right of this photo. I passed on topping out that day considering the snow was hard up high in the chute considering I only had ski crampons and no regular crampons or ice axe. I’ll be back some other…[Read more] tarkman1 replied to the topic Victoria/Hunewill gully 2/17 in the forum Trip Reports 13 years, 1 month ago Thanks for the pix. This is actually me. Ha, you see my tracks on the little cornice pop. That was a fun entrance to some really good corn. Thx. My brother was the phantom higher up who is hard to catch on camera. I’m glad that you guys gave my brother and I the green light for the descent while you peaked out. The snow just looked too…[Read more] tarkman1 replied to the topic Victoria/Hunewill gully 2/17 in the forum Trip Reports 13 years, 1 month ago Okay, now I have an idea of your descent. My bro and I were looking at some of the stuff farther up the drainage. That stuff will be there later. I too subscribed to “I’m over the corn. Bring on the pow!” Skins vs boot. I’m on AT gear. The steeps don’t bug me too much. I just have to tell myself to shorten my steps and not try to go too…[Read more] tarkman1 replied to the topic Victoria/Hunewill gully 2/17 in the forum Trip Reports 13 years, 1 month ago I guess you topped out on Victoria and dropped one of the shots lookers right of the peak. Booting that ascent had to be strenuous. I saw your bootpack. Me being lazy, I went with the skins. My brother and I dropped in the Victoria Peak chute today. We had a later start and couldn’t explore all that much. Plus, the descent looked too much…[Read more] tarkman1 replied to the topic Mt. Mendel – attempt #2 in the forum Trip Reports 14 years, 11 months ago I think my brother skied the Mendel last year.
