      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!

Chair Peak

Recommended Posts

A friend and I are thinking about doing chair peak next year and are just starting to do some preliminary research. I was wondering which route is easier and if possible what kind of gear for both the North Face and the North East Butress

Difficulty depends on the conditions, but they're both pretty moderate, and fun!

 

Gear also depends on conditions, but it's hard to go wrong with four screws and a small rock rack. Take a few pins.

Unless it is really icy, I wouldn't worry about bringing too many screws. I think last year I used two, both on the "crux" section. I would bring a very small rock rack, say some nuts and some pins. Also, a picket or two couldn't hurt either.
