      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!

Bulo Point

Recommended Posts

I attempted to hike Tidbits mountain this weekend in the McKenzie river/Blue River area, and the snow level was around 4500 feet, and there was lots of it. Bulo is further east in the rain shadow, so it might be dry. I was going to try to go there next week. If I go I'll submit a report.

I spent some time SE of Bend this past weekend, and we were up above 5000 ft for lots of the trip. It looked like there was snow high on Paulina Peak, but that was about it. There was no snow on the east side of Santiam, but as soon as we passed over it to the west side, there was snow on the hills.

I have climbed there. Olson wrote a small guide to the place. It is very sweet with lots of potential. almost all face climbing

You wouldn't believe the place now, Wayne. Maybe forty bolted routes or so... unless you're thinking about the Boy Scouts crag?

 

On topic 'tho, I'll bet it goes. There shouldn't be much more than a short walk thru snow (if that) up there this coming weekend.

Spent a day at Bulo, a day at Horsethief and a day at Frenchman's this week. A patch of snow blocked the road about 1/4 mile before the crag, but the rock was dry and warm. Some fun bolted climbs and a couple nice cracks. And of course we had it to ourselves. Horsethief was bloody windy. Saw several rattlers and got maybe 20 ticks between two people and two dogs. My hound ate Death Camas and spent the next 24 hours puking wildly. The Coulee was sunny and warm. Only one other party on Sunshine Wall. Saw the Goran memorial. Snowing hard from Cle Elum on over the pass coming back over last night!
