      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!

Wayne, we need you to show us the way. Since you left for the flash and glitter of the big city, the same ole stuff gets re-climbed week in and week out. Come back to P-town and rejuvenate the Oregon climbing scene.

I've poked around at Lamberson (or is it Lambertson?). The stuff I got on was choss and uninspiring. I know there are some more solid stuff around there--suggestions?

 

There is a wall at Opal Creek? Got any beta? Thats a fabulously beautiful area I haven't explored in years.

Opal Wall is in Tims book , Page 141. He sums it up pretty well. It could be the best thing in w. Or!

 

Any climb Tim puts a star on in Lambo is so sweet! My fav is The bag of Tricks.

 

If my daughters moved back to Or., and my girlfriend would move there from Silverdale, I would be back in a heartbeat!

Yes in : Portland Rock Climbs. He covers way more than Portland. Pretty much covers the upper west Oregon. My favorite section is the adventure climbs chapter

several of us went to lamberson in late summer and had a great time over 2 days. thumbs_up.gif much loose rock however - we watched a group near us let loose a monster slab which could have easily killed someone. thumbs_down.gifthey tried to justify it, but i felt it was irresponsible regardless. we saw so many possibilities and planned definitely to return. Quite a hump for a day trip however.

I think more people should do that “Steel and Stone” route on the Opal Creek wall. “Totally stellar” is right. The one time I went there I got stung by a coupla dozen bees on the approach and my left hand was like a swollen dead club all day long. That’s why we turned around just under the roof, or so I tell myself…

Just drive rd. #2209 into the Stack Creek drainage and look up. shocked.gif

Nonanon, did you go back and finish it? I forgot how classic it is.

Sadly, no I haven't. But it's on the list.

Would you be WW? I just posted a question about Castle Crags as a rock route - hearing from Tim that you put that up.

 

Planning a first trip to Lamberson on 9/13. We'll focusing on the sub-5.10's & maybe TR'ing the upper whatsit wall on the far right - unless someone wants to come along a lead some of the harder classics. Tim says the HR crowd may have been doing some development up there.

Just went climbing at Lamberson this weekend. Great climbing, pretty much everything we were on was really solid and excellent (bag of tricks, sacrosanctamonium). I don't know about the sub 5.10s. Both of the above climbs are bolted through the 5.10 sections (still plenty of trad climbing involved though).
