      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] Liberty Traverse and Big Kangaroo - 7/9/2017

Trip: Liberty Traverse and Big Kangaroo -


Date: 7/9/2017


Trip Report:

Thanks for the inspiring trip reports everyone! It is great to see this site thrive on as this great summer winds on.

Fourth of July was a 4 day weekend for my friends. My gal and I started with the Liberty Traverse. One of the great traverses in the state for sure. We purposely did it overnight for the romance.

Next my guy friends and I did the 2nd ascent of the Skinny Start to the Kearney/Thomas route on Big Kangaroo. It was a burly outing for sure with some minor epics to add interest. Info in Blakes new book, but be careful with the beta, there are more pitches than described, and didnt see the rap anchors for going down the Becky route. About as much fun as we can have on a weekend. Further musings on my online journal. https://waynewallace.wordpress.com/2017/07/09/liberty-traverse-skinny-start-big-kangaroo/ 4th4.jpg4th3.jpg

Yeah Wayne! I can't comment on the burly Big K adventure, but for sure love that you enjoyed the Liberty Traverse. It is so cool (a classic even), and infinitely scaleable for energy and ambition. The bivy option is a nice touch.


And, I feel very honored to have you link my TR on your blog!
