    Why, why Rainier with guides? Working towards something? There might be better options depending on your goals.

    Not familiar with this at all but very familiar with EQX. My best guess is that it was a seasonal flow and that the outward/upward projection was gravity fed pressure as opposed to a geyser. I...

    Mtnrs route is class 2 max. All I remember is a big boulder field. You'd have to forcibly strike your head against a rock to find difficulties there in summer. I don't remember any red tape...

    It seems that the very best freeheel skiers mix it up. They can do the tree or bump run in tele turns but switch between parallel and tele in an unconscious art form.

    I tried it, results not impressive. I plunged knee deep into water headed to an ice climb. Took off boots, scrubbed socks in snow, the whole thing. It probably worked but my feet were fully wet,...

    You're right, I can't think of a single experience that is directly relatable to New England, mostly due to AK's big rivers which are like frozen highways. New England is more creeks. Here's a few...

    When I lived in Alaska a few of my adventuring friends were former mushers/trappers and it was habit for them to build a fire everytime we stopped to rest. I remember even on belay ledges them...

    Challenge??

    Another vote for skiing something. For me trees were a much harder skill to master than anything else.
