Rainier May 2022
KayoGoncalves posted a topic in Climbing PartnersHello world! I’m looking to summit Rainier in May 2022 and I’m actively looking for partners. I have summited Rainier last August through standard DC route and I’m looking to summit again for the adventure, challenge, and also because last year the smoke, forrest fires, and heat wave took the Rainier views and experience away. If you are interested don’t hesitate to reach out on: firstname.lastname@example.org (305)733-5020
I ran a kickstarter that was a roaring success (thanks for the amazing support and also the nice words privately messaged and emailed from so many). I made some of the requested changes regarding areas under development, had fun talking about it on the Becoming Human podcast, shipped copies to all the backers and now the book (drum roll) is available to all while stocks last, so if you fancy checking an utter ton of moderate friendly info on sport crags here, near here, and worth taking a trip to over there, well snag your copy via… https://letsrockwa.wordpress.com/ GPS for parking, camping, and the crag. Beta, grades, and bolt counts. Big friendly pictures from the base of climbs. Advice on areas that are crumbly or hazardous, those with access problems and those that are easy to find but are still under development and should be avoided for now. Magazine sized and spiral bound for ease of use at the crag and also so you can have it rebound into smaller chapters if you fancy With some areas of Washington being a four+ hour drive away, well Oregon and Squamish and Idaho are the same driving distance, so I chucked those in, and well, Vegas, Utah and California are just a quick plane hop away, so why not. And well, there were some other spots that we visited that were worth covering just because they were quite splendid. Here's the chapter guides so you know what's covered...
dry tooling PNW Joins The 21st Century
Kposaune posted a topic in Climber's BoardHello! The season has come where the rock is wet, skis are worthless, and ice has yet to grow, if it ever does. Behold, the best collection of dry tooling in the Pacific Northwest! Mik Metzler leading Chewbaccerotica D7 Over the past 10 months we have trundled, scrubbed, and fully bolted 25 routes from D4-D8. We are also working on an advanced crag holding 8 or so routes from D8-D12. These routes are nothing like the slab, mud, and road cuts you have tried. Tom Beirne on a repeat ascent of Piña Coladas With Palpatine D7 This is the beginning of bringing the PNW into the future, and if you haven’t been here yet you are in for a treat. All routes are accessible to TR access with bolted stainless anchors with stainless wire gates. We expect that some may not be able to complete routes, so you can TR through these wire gates. We want you to try anything without concern for having to leave your gear behind as popularity and skill for the sport grows. They are your anchors! All of the thousands of dollars of hardware was generously donated through hundreds of donations from the community. When the anchor biners need replacing, we will all be overjoyed to replace them. Jen climbing during the second Ladypolooza women’s event Currently as the season is picking up, there are about 2-3 groups out at Wayne’s World/Darkside every weekend, and a few groups during the week and development continues. We monitor and fix issues usually in a few days. 7 routes on the main wall have had new dry-static ropes installed (generously donated!) for fast access to route anchors. Joanne enjoys the new extension of Party Time! Excellent! D6 If you have questions or concerns, or looking for a partner you may contact me directly. We also have a community FB page SeattleMixed Climbing to see FA’s, condition reports, and developing updates and new routes are available.

Washington Sno-Parks site evaluations
caverpilot posted a topic in the *freshiezone*Have you experienced issues with Sno-Parks not being plowed? I've run into this issue at Cougar Sno-Park on St. Helens multiple times. Turns out, the work is done by contractors, not the state, and the state has no way to verify the work is being done unless reports are made to them. Previously, you had to find their number and call. However, there is now an online reporting form: http://www.parks.state.wa.us/FormCenter/Winter-Recreation-9/SnoPark-Onsite-Evaluation-Form-68 I've copied the form below so one can see what type of information they are gathering.

Leavenworth, WA Ice Conditions?
NJW posted a topic in Ice Climbing ForumHi All, I'm doing a mixed route in the area on Friday, and wondering if I should extend my trip to Saturday for some ice. Given the recent conditions, it seems dismal. With the coming weather this week, how do we feel about ice climbing this weekend? Thanks much!
HughH posted a topic in Climbing PartnersHey all- I will be in WA during the first/second week of March. I'd love to do some climbing for a few days before heading up to ski in BC. Give me a shout if your are available/interested; happy to discuss more details over email, text or phone. Thanks!
