    Purloined Pictures

    So, not really stolen, but here a cool Instagram hack: for any Instagram page of the form "https://www.instagram.com/p/XXXXXXX/" with image (video doesn't work) append the following string: "/media/?size=l" and you'll get a direct link to an image that is public. If you wan to be nice, include the account name.

    From mybergtour:




    This one is from the same account up in Muotathal, North and East of where we skied out of the Oberalpstock:



    I think this is one of the gnarlier lines off the NE side of the Oberalpstock, called the Fruttstock couloir

    Couloir looks like it has a pinch point, but the gut looks good to me, it's North facing so probably good snow.

    It's big, like 4000+ vertical feet.

    Great hack, huh? easy.

    who can name the skis, you old fuckers should keep quiet and let the youngsters have a crack at it.

    I'm spending more time going down weird little bitstreams to keep myself amused.

    Gonna guess Olin? Not a youngster, but definitely younger than metal binders and leather boots.

    The might be Olins, but I think it's another make with a very similar insignia.

    Scientists now have decisive molecular evidence that humans and chimpanzees once had a common momma and that this lineage had previously split from monkeys.

    Hopefully next year, but like the sagacious Mr. Mike says, it's kind of driven by the COVID-19s.

    Mid to late January anyone? March may be busy in the SW rockies.

    Oh and take a listen to FZ's musings on Whole Lotta Love, right up through the Pepto Dismal.



    TURN IT UP

    and wade past the n00ddly interl00d.
