      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!

Give me a hint. Name the peak in the background on the right of the peak in question.

Peak in the background is Blum Peak, which puts this somewhere to the NE in the Chilliwack area...maybe....Nodoubt Peak?

Peak in the background looks like Redoubt so I'm going to say the mountain of interest is Bear Mountain (west or WSW side). It's the other side of Bear which has that really really steep wall (one of the steepest in the Cascades). Peak is just under 8,000 ft high.

The infamous Peak 7259'.

 

Coveted by many, climbed by few.

 

Located at the head of Nesakwatch Creek. Central buttress climbed in 1948 by Helmy Beckey while Fred took the entire cheerleading squad to prom. In the late 80's Peter Doorish established 27 other routes with names loosely based on Dante's Inferno.

Rapid Peak, I thought it was Pocket Peak?

 

Or is Pocket the next one over?

Pocket is the next one to the west, between Ensakwatch and Silesia creeks, sort of Half Dome appearing from the Reford trail. Rapid is the Bear appearing one at the head of Ensakwatch/Nesakwatch
