      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!

Wyeast route

Recommended Posts

Just curious to know if anyone has done this route recently. Heard from a friend that it was getting pretty exposed and rockfall was a concern, but he never actually moved onto the face. Wanted to do this route before it was too run out; is it too late already???

Version 2A in Oregon High looked awful on June 1st. The regular version had lots of exposed rock on the approach. If you don't mind climbing talus and choss, go for it. The upper part is still probably is decent condition. Pick a cool day with high clouds, it will get soft over there in a hurry.

 

I'd recommend going directly up to the top of the Steel Cliff, when you turn the corner on the east side of the mountain. There are several good pitches of around 55 degree slope. The line on page 26 of Oregon High looked boring to me.

 

The finish is fun, very exposed. I enjoyed the route.

I skied the Wy'east face last Sunday and I didn't see any sign of rockfall where I was. The ridge itself looked pretty melted out though, so I'd imagine the fruit factor to be quite a bit higher up there.
