This is the time of year when I review notes I've collected during the past 12 months and update the chronologies on my ski history website:

http://www.alpenglow.org/ski-history/

I'm also continuing to update the Northwest Mountaineering Journal new route "inbox" on the following page:

http://www.alpenglow.org/nwmj/inbox.html

The NWMJ inbox now has 156 candidate routes awaiting publication in a future issue of the journal. The routes have not been fully vetted by editors, so the list may change eventually.

Hopefully we'll find a way to publish short reports of these routes in NWMJ when someone has more time to devote to it. For now, the raw list is a handy reference.

Most of the new routes I've posted were completed in 2014. But a few earlier routes have come to light. These include:

1999, Mt Rainier, Fuhrer Thumb ski descent
1999, Mt Garfield, West Peak, Preiss route
2004, Bears Breast Mtn, SE mega-slab
2011, Colchuck Balanced Rock, "Honey Badger"
2011, Mt Stuart, "Gorillas Direct"
2011, Kangaroo Tower, "Captain Kangaroo"
2013, Argonaut Peak, NW Buttress (FWA)

If you find errors or know of unreported routes that are missing from the list, feel free to drop me a line (lowell.skoog@alpenglow.org) or post something here.

Thanks!

The NWMJ inbox now has 182 candidate routes awaiting publication in a future issue of the journal. The routes have not been fully vetted by editors, so the list may change eventually.

Hopefully we'll find a way to publish short reports of these routes in NWMJ when someone has more time to devote to it. For now, the raw list is a handy reference.

Most of the new routes I've posted were completed in 2015. But a few earlier routes have come to light. These include:

1998, Dragontail Peak, "String Theory," new route
2005, Little Tahoma, Lower NE Face, ski descent
2009, Mt Stuart, "Mixed Blessings, Right," new route
2009, Red Mountain, West ("Painted") Couloir, ski descent

Most of the new routes I've posted were completed in 2016. But a few earlier routes have come to light. These include:

2006, "Black Widow" (Peak 7440+ east of Spider Mtn), First ascent
2014, Kitling Peak, North Face ski descent
