      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!

North Face Triumph in Winter

Recommended Posts

OW - it's called a pre-climb TR!

 

did you check the gallery? I uploaded a number of pics from the same flight, different mtns though. I have a few more as well. I hope I don't get too much hate mail for showing someone's project.

j_b, yes I saw those, excellent eye candy. You took those on a flight? I'm so jealous, thanks for sharing.

I said:

I have a slide of the N face of Triumph taken in 1986 during a winter ascent of Mt Despair. However, I don't have a slide scanner. So, that probably doesn't help you much.

 

Okay, now I have a scanner. Here's the pic. This was taken in early March, 1986, during the first winter ascent of Mt Despair. We had climbed the standard route on Triumph the previous day. This was during a fine weather spell following a period of heavy snow followed by heavy rain. I believe Jim Nelson and Kit Lewis climbed the NE buttress of Slesse during this same period.

I'm guessing Lowell means the west route. Beckey lists Lowell in the party having the FWA of Triumph, but it doesn't list any FWAs for NE Ridge.
