      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!

[TR] Alpental Ski Area- Stellar Falls (aka Chairlift Falls) 2/23/2004

Recommended Posts

Climb: Alpental Ski Area-Stellar Falls (aka Chairlift Falls)

 

Date of Climb: 2/23/2004

 

Trip Report:

Yep, ski area was closed so we headed up there Monday. The falls is in pretty good shape considering the weather. I think the cold nights last week helped. Led up two routes and toproped some stuff off the trees. The 30 foot pillar at the top of the main line was nice and fat and fun to lead, the bottom bit is rotten but not terrible. There are big icicles hanging down on the right for anyone who wanted to try that mixed route.

We were the only people there until this guy showed up in the afternoon and top rope self belayed for a little bit. It was a really nice day to play around on the ice, and you can't beat the approach. Sorry, no pics due to a dead camera.

 

Gear Notes:

ice climbing schtuff

 

Approach Notes:

Park car, enjoy the leisurely stroll up the packed and groomed ski run, enjoy the glissade all the way back to the car.
