      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!

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if the routes around Newhalem shown on the misha site stay dry during rain, seep a lot etc. Are they any good?

Depends on what grade you climb. they are beautiful routes, not contrived, some really really nice lines, but on the stiff side. There is only one 5.9 if I remember correctly. The group putting them up has done a LOT of work out there, trails, gardening, so please respect the area. You have to walk down the road a bit now that the DOT people put up new railings. Some routes stay dry, yes, and if it's raining in torrents, heck just head over to Mazama (when the N. Cascade hwy is open that is)
