      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!

Went to Vegas for a week.

 

Climbed 3 days. Fun routes. Got snowed on one of the 3 days.

There is full on water ice back in the canyons like at the base of Rainbow Wall is about a 4 pitch WI2 where the normal approach goes.

Went to a hot spring in Arizona 1 day. Fun canyoneering hike and bouldering too.

Went to the thrift stores one day. I got some silver polyester disco pants for $5 cool.gif Maybe they used to be Roy's? I dont see any tiger bites yellaf.gif

 

Drove down thru the northern Nevada desert scoped out some cool granite in Big Smoky Valley. Any body know details?

 

Didn't find the "Skinwalker Ranch" yet shocked.gif but there are a couple of candidates.

 

On the way home the stuffed penguin nearly visited the Kitty Kat Ranch hahaha.gif

We climbed a crack, a face and a chimney. cool.gif They were all real easy routes - not apologizing or justifying, but for one partner it was first time climbing in a year (and about 3rd time in last 5 yrs), and for other partner first time since August. So it was best to stick to real moderate stuff. No crowds was good.

 

Geronimo on Monday. This is big jugs the whole way.

First 2 pitches of Johnny Vegas on Tuesday. Real good face. Then blizzard started at 2nd belay so we rapped off.

Hot springs and desert bighorns on Wednesday. Canyon bouldering.

Healy's Haunted House on Thurs. This was very good. 5 pitches with 3 of chimney! Lots of back off slings on first two pitches where there are some run out back and foot sections laugh.gif One section took almost an hour to figure out which was best way to climb it - back and foot, back and knee, stemming with a foot and hand on each wall, or which way to face...

Nice! I bet you got some sweet pictures with red rocks/white snow?

 

Speaking of sheep. Do you know if those "mountain sheep" you see in the Fraser Valley are the same thing as "Big Horn Sheep"? Or maybe "Dall Sheep"?

 

Sounds like a great trip. bigdrink.gif
