      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!

Weekday Climbing Partner Wanted in the Mt. Hood / Mt. Rainier / Smith Rock areas

Recommended Posts

Weekday Climbing Partner: I’m looking for regular weekday climbing partners for winter alpine routes within a three hour drive of Portland; as far North as Mount Rainier, as far East as Smith Rock and as far South as Southern Oregon. Mount Hood is my playground. Weekdays only as I work every weekend but I'm generally available 2-3 consecutive days per week.

About me: Climbing is my passion. I climb alpine style - fast and light but not stupid light (ie I carry pro & safety equipment). I'm safety oriented, I move fast on moderate exposed terrain, I have high endurance and I’m highly proficient on moderately technical terrain. I have an ice and rock rack and can pull you out of a crevasse.

About you: I’d prefer someone with complimentary skills to mine, someone more proficient than me on ice or rock and less proficient on the other. Having a similar to pace to mine is important - I’m looking for someone that averages 6 hours from Timberline to the summit of Mount Hood in full winter conditions. If you don't meet those requirements but have something to offer in a climbing partnership likely I'm still down to just climb.

Objectives: This winter I’m looking to climb several C2C West and North routes on Mount Hood. When it’s stormy in the Cascades I’m down for craging at Smith Rock. I'm also interested in some winter routes on Mount Rainier (closures permitting). Message me if you’re interested and think we're a good fit. Checkout my MP profile before responding please.

Hello, in June I am going to be climbing Rainier and have been looking for a partner on the Dissapointment Cleaver Route. I will be able to climb between the 19-23 of June. Please let me know and we can work it out!
