      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!

Triple Couloirs

Recommended Posts

I climbed the couloirs yesterday after skiing in the previous day and walked out today.

 

I left a pin after entrance to the 3rd couloir. Someone might like it for belay on the left rocks.

 

Still ok shape.

 

I have climbed it before. It still is a nice route. It took me 3 days with driving.

This may have been discussed previously, but how many pitches of belayed climbing are involved in order to access the 2nd couloir...the 3rd? How are the belays? Any recomendations concerning descending from the summit?

between 1st (hidden) and second we belayed 3 pitches. 1st was steep snow/neve, 2nd was mixed ice/snow, third was WI. Belay for 1st pitch was a pin and small cam. belay for 2nd pitch was rock gear (mostly cams), belay for 3rd was 2 ice tools and a screw. Only pro I placed on the whole of those 3 pitches was a green alien mid way up the 3rd (WI) pitch. At the time I did you may have been able to get a screw in.

 

Between the 2nd and 3d coliour, we simuled.

 

It depends on how comfortable you are in steep snow and some ice, but if I did it again, I would solo or simul solo it. Every pitch I led, I ended up just pitching out without pro since I didn't feel threatened and it was fairly hard to come by.

NO, it's when you are soloing while you both holding on to the same ice tool. It's a great way for couple to solo together.

Yeah, it didn't make sense. I was with another person so I meant we would just solo at the same time. simul-solo = solo with company.
