      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] Brokentop- West Face Flip side 9 oclock 5/1/2004

Recommended Posts

Climb: Brokentop-West Face Flip side 9 oclock

 

Date of Climb: 5/1/2004

 

Trip Report:

The corn outlook for my short weekend wasn't looking good.... a single day off on Sunday was all this gaper had to work with, and I had figured it was going to be spent catching up on long overdue husbandly chores..... a bit sadened, i made a small pittanced to the lord of corniez by creating the symbolic sign of corn in yellow snow outside my back door. the high and mighty cornhole one sent me a sign, an email dispatch from all things stoke: schralper.

 

It didn't take much to convince me to go, it took a little smooth talkin to becky to get the final approval, and like that it was set: a late sat tow out to the Green Lakes TH with the skiing destination still open.... does life in the 3 sisters get anybetter? slednekkin and schralpin corn! SWEET!

hot sloppy skin love and bachy!

 

A small layer of clouds made the skin in nice and damn hot, but the trees provided some shade from the scorchin heat. The fall creek trail is so much plabber with no wankerz on it, well except me and e.

 

We setup camp on the lava flow just above greenlakes. This site provided super views all around and some SICK rock to boulder on. I'll post my new projekts on 0friction.

 

Anyhow, we decided to go check out the west face of b-top, in particular either the shots opposite of 11 oclock or 9 oclock.

 

Sleep was good, too good, and we had a nice, albeit a bit late start to our day on sunday but made great time up the west face.

Due to the later start, kickin steps up the west side went super quick, but so did our time left to climb. We didn't quite get to the saddle, but instead found a sweet ledge to chill out on and admire the fine rock formations that make up b-top.

The snow on the west side still hasn't full setup from the storms, so optimal cornage wasn't had, but still, who can complain about making turns in such a dope spot, with some great company, with nobody else around for miles... magical.

 

The skin out back to the TH went pretty quick due to our keen quasi randoteleturnz skills.

 

to quote cletus, a good time was had by all.

 

Approach Notes:

lots of snow in green lakes and on cascade lks still, west side of b-top will melt fast though.

Nice dude! I was looking over towards B-top from my perch and was wondering what kind turns where there to be had. Way to go get it!

 

There are so many good lines right now in the Sisters it's sick...come to think of it I'm feeling a little sick. Hmmmm
