      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!

Is anyone on this site familiar with an old route on the southeast ridge of Mt. Washington starting off with a 50-60ft slab with excellent cracks, and continuing on with some old petons?  I feel like someone may have mentioned to me that it was in an old climbing guide, but I cannot recall.  If anyone has information on it that would be awesome!

I climbed the SE Spur this last summer. What did you want to know? I also wrote up a trip report I could email you.

Nick - is your trip report posted, I would love to read it.  If I get back in some kind of climbing shape I would like to try this route.

Nick, I have researched the south east spur route and this isn't the route that I climbed.  It looks like a killer route, the one I found myself on seems to be more of a southwest route, starting with some cracky slab climbing just above the chute that looks to be to the left of the southeast spur route.  If you have pictures of the southwest spur route I would be very interested if you feel like sharing them.

The route I found starts with a hundred feet or so of excellent crack/slab climbing on which there are a few old peleton anchors.  The first crux of this route currently has some old white webbing wrapped around a horn to the right of a small chimney at the top of the first pitch.  This is the committing move as it is not easily downclimbed from this point on.

Thanks for the info all who have responded.  I am planning to go back to this route with proper gear and will try to give a full report of route, pictures included!
