      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!

What's the Cascade River crossing like

Recommended Posts

If it's bad I have a backup plan but looking at the Eldorado Roush Creek approach.

 

Willing to jump through burning hoops of death before plan b. Just depends on how skinny those hoops are.

 

Anyone been up there lately?

Yeah, I would doubt this "winter" has knocked out that big log. If your plan b is anywhere near Eldorado, definetely drive up there because your chances are good. Good choice of climb too because you'll probably hit snow just as you head into the talus fields (snowline at around 3500-4000 feet up there right now I think). Beyond that, the going is probably easier in the snow than during summer.

I climbed it by myself.

 

I wasnt worried about logs being knocked out or boulder fields. Have been up there before.

 

Thanks for the useless advice.

Nobody was spraying or claiming some hardcore route..

 

As can be viewed by your title we can all see that you consider yourself hardcore. I prefer a liesurely pace and slow motion climb.

Do you feel better now?

 

Would it be preferred if I wrote a 20 page essay about it instead?

No, I was simply pointing out that you asked for advice, some people offered what they had and there was no reason to be a dick about it and sarcasticly thank them for their "useless advice."

Still no reason to be a dick. Take care, man. wave.gif

 

I believe some of the replies seemed somewhat condescending. Especially the "this winter" and log deal. I wasn't too concerned about what it was like last spring either. I beleive I was more concerned if the snowmelt had been so much that the log crossing might be scary and dangerous if you fell into the water or even if the water was so high it might cover the log partially.. Also some comments seemed genuine. It's pretty obvious to me.

Your attitude blows. Since you're a troll, I'll just consider the source. Go suck your dick.

Being a troll is fun. I'll be hanging out under the log this summer charging a fee to cross the river.
