      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] Hyalite - Various 1/1/2013

Trip: Hyalite - Various


Date: 1/1/2013


Trip Report:

Had a great trip to Hyalite over the New Year's Weekend and managed to climb many of the classic moderates.


The mixed section at the bottom of Silken Slot was completely iced over, but water was pouring through the tube. The step across to the chockstone was a bit dicey.



Squirmy arm barring and thin feet were the order of the day. A solid red link cam protected the move.



The second pitch to the tree (the first variation mentioned in Winter Dance) was delaminated and required gentleness. Water was running over the rocks, and the ice was falling apart.



The top out for Upper Greensleeves offered some turf sticks=good fun!



Mummy Cooler II was a dance worth doing, as always.



We found the start to The Matrix to be fat (relative to what Winter Dance seemed to suggest as "normal").



The start to the Hangover was wet, but the finish was plastic!



GI's topout offered a hookfest!



The Fat One was...well...fat and delicious



We took the Elevator all the way to the top floor.



...and even got a gratuitous drop knee.





Gear Notes:

Nearly everything took 16's anywhere you wanted to place them.


Approach Notes:
