      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!

Nice work boys! Looked like conditions are as good as they get on that route.  When my partner I attempted it 20 years ago we had a disagreement on the route.  I said we needed to follow the left traversing kitty litter and verglass covered sloping ramp/ledge to the OBVIOUS dihedral/gulley system.  He disagreed and insisted that we needed continue up the broad couloir.  He is more stubborn that I am so up the couloir we went and discovered fun ice and mixed climbing.  After we pulled the final obstacle I told him that was definitely not NY  Gulley.  He said 'I know, but there was no f'ing way I was going to cross that ramp'.  The route we climbed has been since described variously as NJ Turnpike (our name) and LA Express.
