      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!

Broughton's Bluff beta?

Recommended Posts

I think there is all of like 4 sub 10 trad lines at Broughton, and all somewhat sandbagged in my limited experience. The Hammer and the Sickle are two on the Left Hanging Gardens wall - fun columnar basalt followed by a .7 and .8 offwidth respectively. They always kick my ass. Classic crack is great though polished smooth and a real bitch. All can be easily top roped too. Haven't climbed it yet, but Gandalf's Grip looks like a fun 3 pitch 5.9 too.

First pitch of Sheer Stress .10a. I'd say that the only real .10a part of that climb is the first 15-20 feet (gear placements can be ackward) then it's fairly easy steps and a fun move around the arete to the chains. I suppose pump could be a factor near the end, but I'm sure that DFA would never experience such a thing as that.
