      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

[TR] Bridal Veil Falls - Various Falls 1/7/2017

Recommended Posts

Trip: Bridal Veil Falls - Various Falls

 

Date: 1/7/2017

 

Trip Report:

Me and a buddy climbed Bridal Veil Falls yesterday near Index.

 

We top roped the main falls twice. The tree anchor is about 210 feet from the base of the falls so bring a really long runner to extend or it is a pain! The ice was wet and lots of water was running behind so we weren't too sure about pro.

 

Main Falls:

The climbers left section of the falls looked good too, another group lead it:

Then we lead up the upper falls:

We hiked up the creek bed finding another WI3 falls above:

We completed the hike up to the lake and took the trail out. A great day with lots of ice mileage.

 

Gear Notes:

Ice gear. 60m twin ropes. Looong runner useful for TR.

 

Approach Notes:

Walked the trail, all booted out.

Right on. Didn't even know the falls froze over, however that does make sense. Now I'm wishing I took advantage of the ice opportunities.

 

Looks like fun. :tup:
