      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!

Best Route @ Dishman

Recommended Posts

There are some powerful new routes at Dishman but what do you think is the "best" route there?

 

My vote would be Rock 106.

Dane, did you like Slave Labor (the big roof route at the far end of the wall)? That is supposed to be the best route at the crag.

Larry and his "slave" Pat put those lines up. I TR'ed Body Scarfer once and never did get up Slave Labor after a number of tries IIRC. Both of them were damn hard for a fat kid. Mahoney was 17 or 18, Larry well past 40 then and I was in my mid 30s.

 

Both of them were climbing hard face much better than I ever could/would.

 

I like the middle lines (around Rock 106) because they were longer and cleaner. I suspect some of Marty's routes are the best on the cliff today but past mid .11 it isn't going to ever matter too much to me.

 

Then again I took a 50 footer (which is really hard to do)off Rock 106, and lived, so I always thought it was the best route there smile.gif

For 12's, Slave Labor is the best line and probably my favorite at the crag. A little bouldery but then sustained which seems to be rare for granite climbing. For the 11's I think that they are all pretty good but Rock 106 and Touch of Grey stand out. All the routes are bolted well at Dishman now so if you dont like one you can thread the anchors and go to the next one. Sorry Dane, no more 50 footers unless you skip a bunch of clips.
