  1. Good climbing near Portland

    Does anyone know if you can you get into Bulo Point?
  2. Farside - Sweet Fucker

    Now thats a pretty good one!
  3. Farside - Sweet Fucker

    Oh I don't care, and I more than understand why you named it that. I guess I will just call it something else if ever go out there with my 12yr old son and climb it together, since he always really likes to know the names. A fair amount of people would probably find the name rather distasteful is all I am saying.
  4. Farside - Sweet Fucker

    Sweet Fucker... hmmm really you couldn't come up with a better name?
  5. Moolack?

    Anyone been to this place: http://www.wix.com/ire510/moolackrockclimbing#! Seem interesting... Worth the drive from PDX/Vancouver area?
  6. Thanks, that doesn't help much though! I'm not as good of an ice climber as you are, I imagine, so I can't just jump on any old WI5. But if its easy for the grade or not a total sandbag, I might feel more comfortable getting on such an unpublished route. Oh well probably out of my league anyways.
  7. So what do you think you would rate it Wayne1112?
  8. Wait so is it hard or easy for WI5? I'd like to give it a whack someday, but if its hard for the grade I think I might have someone else lead it

    Plaidman, you read my mind! I was just going to edit my post to add that. Cheers buddy
  10. Looks like a slog to get up there. Then again so is Trout Creek. Never made the hike but have craned my neck countless times as I drive by. Any fixed anchors? Chad Hmm yeah not any more of a slog than Trout, I think it is actually a bit shorter... maybe I'm mistaken though. Seemed easier to me. We caught an old road heading about halfway up the hill from behind the market. Then a mellow hike from the end of that up to the crag. Yup, some new bolts and old pins, as well as left some of our own gear. All of what we climbed was in the 5.10-5.11 and of very high quality. Probably could find some easier stuff if you wanted too. I'd check it out if I was you! In my opinion, plus there is a bit more adventure than Trout not knowing what your getting on and all, which I find to always be a fun way to spend the day.

    Ummm how is the report not too be trusted? Sounds like it did exactly what I would have expected it to do, as I attempted to point out before... But I guess to each his own eh! Monday: A 50 percent chance of snow. Mostly cloudy and cold, with a high near 7. Wind chill values as low as -34. Windy, with a west wind between 26 and 30 mph, with gusts as high as 45 mph. New snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches possible. If that's not enough to deter you, I dont know what is...
  12. Looks like things are moving along pretty smoothly. Nice to see for a change, usually this stuff takes years. I'm already missing getting my Trout fix. Anyone ever climbed at Bill's Columns? We decided to check that out and found some really high quality routes. Plus 30 min less diving. Found some interesting old gear to boot!

    Well that is the NOAA forecast for 9,000....

    Leading one 5.6 and top roping a couple of 5.9's at Ozone is news? Times are sure changing!
