      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!

DIRT

Recommended Posts

420am wakeup

after a loooong dusty xcountry hike uphill here is the route description:

 

dirty hard slabs lead to a dirty hard hand crack to o/w to dirty chimmeny. which leds to dirty hard finger crack and a dirty hard traverse and layback. which leads to even a dirtirer (read dirtiest) hard layback loose flake corner system then up into a real dirty chimmeny to some really dirty slabs.

 

great climbing overall

 

we encountered dirt, loose rocks, dirt, rock fall, like 6 whippers and a couple points of aid.

 

descent is baby with 2 raps and some good ole' scree skiin'!

 

icicle canyon always provides the fun dirt.

 

good route jim and gordon! we are jealous you got it first!!

 

i highly reccomend this route to anyone who is interested in dirt and adventure. pretty solid in the hard dirt rating, but not too bad cuz i was able to do it.

 

we brought single st of cams to 4" and a couple stoppers and 2 tri cams. we used a 40m rope and had to simul some hard dirt sections (read kinda fun)

 

made it back to the bar to get inbreiated.

erik,

Don't know what the name of the route you did is called, but it sounds like a (painful) reminder of something we did in the IC several years ago, namely Condor Buttress. Could that be it? We were so proud of topping out that we pissed down the top pitch.
