Awesome Cascade climbing pics

Recommended Posts

Found this while surfing around. The pictures and choice of peaks are great! Who's site is this anyways?

I personally like the Mt. Triumph and Mt. Sefrit climb photos. There is no chestbeating either. Whoever put this together, thanks! I forgot my camera while climbing some of these peaks, and it's nice to go here and look at those places again.

That route he has marked out on the South Twin is a bear compared to the way that follows a neat little trail up between the peaks(on the left before the creek crossing, there are ribbons), then up a snowfield to about 1/4 the way up the ridge grin.gif. His way follows the ridge completely. I did this last year. There was a ton of 'wacken and it took a long time. The sqeeters were out of control, they chased us up to the summit! The forest was nice and purty though.

hey guys, thanks for the kudos. I got a digital camera last spring and have had a great time taking pictures over the last year.


klar404 mentioned cinderella from the east. coincidently, I just did that last weekend and'll be adding pics from there when I get around to it.


happy climbing!

I've got an Olympus C-3000. it's a 3.3 megapixel. you can certainly get better. A year ago it was at a pretty good price point; I expect that currently somewhere around 5 megapixels is where the price/perfomance curve starts to drop off.


It has a slight (3/8 second) delay between the time I press the button and the time the image is captured... pretty annoying and makes for a poor camera choice if you're into action shots.


It doesn't take good pitcures in low light and it doesn't take good pictures when there's a lot of contrast between bright and dark (e.g. bright snow and shadows on peoples faces is a combination certain to produce a poor quality picture).


the eyepiece viewfinder is a little better than useless. If I want a picture to come out the way I expect I need to turn on the led screen (which really sucks the batteries) and use it to see what I'm getting.


There are models that have a slide cover that close over the lense and led screen to turn the camera on and off. I'd *highly* suggest a model like that for something that you'll want to take climbing (or do anything rough and tumble with.) In fact, just today, I was at the top of a pitch while helping with a climbing seminar and I asked someone to bring my camera up to me during their climb... now it has a crack in the led screen frown.gif


however, even with all my negative press, it's still a pretty good camera.


There are a lot of other reviews of digital cameras at http://www.dpreview.com


good luck.
