Heyburn in the Sawtooths of Idaho. The wife getting it done after some good turns under Three Fingered Jack, OR February 28, 2014 at 12:47 am #675494 ale_capone 864 Posts I think in most parts of the world, bush whacking is something you do to get around off trail. In the coastal climates, it’s actually something you receive for even trying. cruising at a blazing 100 yards an hour. 3 days, and the boards never left our packs.

March 21, 2014 at 7:32 pm #675497 NickDrake 46 Posts The north cascades are a special place. There is a stream under this, tame stuff: Only fell in the creek ONCE during the making of this bridge: Ok now we’re talking, this is some whackin! Ok now this is just stupid, look for the red ski tips stoudema I prefer to use the term “veggie belay” 🙂 March 26, 2014 at 10:55 pm #675498 SwitchBack 136 Posts OH Man. great thread. Consequence of riding too fast through the thicket. Summer riding in the Tetons Urban bushwaking The summer “trail”.

North side of Shastina: Fullers2oh, the sufferfest leader, master of the bushwak, and inspirational adventurer Where the heck is Dave? I miss him and the mega-epic adventures he told us about and/or joined him on. Here is one from lower V bowl, Dana Plateau (JimW’s photo) Creek crossing to get back to Powerhouse (JimW’s photo) There have been some epic schwaks this season for sure. High snow levels, tons of vegetation at the access points. Mike calls it the persistent manzanita layer. Splitboarding is the answer unless Splitbooting is the answer, either way we're going snowboarding because America!

Hard to get to though. :thumbsup: The forest around the Oregon volcanoes are generally pretty easy to travel through. Here is one from a climb of the north side of McLoughlin though. Pretty hard to get to (or out from), though I have a new route planned for my next attempt. It was worth it, though I am not sure ShredOR thought so. 😉 Same manzanita and shrubs as on the north side of Shastina. On this day we woke up to low clouds and drizzle before it cleared which left all the shrubs dripping wet. We were soaked at this point.
