Hello Robert-
I lived in South Pasadena for many years before moving to Orange County and Balboa Island. I enjoyed your pictures of familiar Southern California climbs. Perhaps you will return to Bend for more than a visit?
 
Here is a bit of information about "Climbing South Sister" from Google:
 
 
 
See you soon.

"TraditionalMountaineering is founded on the premise that "He who knows naught, knows not that he knows naught", that exploring the hills and summitting peaks have dangers that are hidden to the un-informed and that these inherent risks can be in part identified and mitigated by information, training, interesting gear and knowledge gained through the experiences of others.
 
The value of TraditionalMountaineering to our Friends and Subscribers is the selectivity of the information we provide, and its relevance to introducing folks to hiking on the trail, exploring off the trail, mountain travel and Leave-no-Trace light-weight bivy and backpacking, technical travel over steep snow, rock and ice, technical glacier travel and a little technical rock climbing on the way to the summit. Whatever your capabilities and interests, there is a place for everyone in traditional mountaineering."

Hi Tom,

Thanks very much for your call yesterday!

I'm looking forward to meeting you and friends while in Bend, and to climbing South Sister.  I like the idea of a 6:00 am start to avoid the heat ...

I'm also an avid photographer -- For your possible interest, here's a link to photos I've posted for hikes and climbs done so far this year:   http://picasaweb.google.com/rgrandall

See you in a few weeks....

-- Bob
