      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!

Ride of the Valkyries @ Purina

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if Ride of the Valkyries has seen any action in a while? Seeing that its a Hugh Herr FA has me wondering if it's a major sandbag. Or if the beta is to wear stilts with camhooks on the end and helium balloons tied around your ankles.

my guess is no traffic

never was cleaned in the first place

perhaps an ambitious citizen can resurrect it. It is a cool line.

Likely needs modern anchors above and below

I still have a chalk bag I bought from Dick about that same time at the Snow Creek TH .  He had a mannequin riding shotgun in his van and told stories of being hassled by The Man about vagabonding and being, well,  eccentric.  I learned later of his substantial contributions to Leavenworth climbing.

My lament in the last decade or so. I guess every generation in WA says the same though.  I know the crowding since Treaty times has been a one way ratchet, with no relief in sight.
