      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!

Chest Beating New Route At squamish!!!!!

Recommended Posts

In the Smoke Bluffs

Lies a tiny crag named Lumberland.

 

The original "Lumberland" route (10a) has been recleaned and a bolted station added to replace the rotting treestump belay.

 

"Maple Cream" 10b/c 20m climbs the start of the GMB then moves right to two thin cracks. Mantle on diagonal crack above, wander up slab past 2 bolts then hand rail right to finish on top of Lumberland.

 

Gear to orange TCU size plus the already mentioned 2 bolts.

 

It took me 4 tries to redpoint so either I suck or it's 10c not 10b? fruit.gif

 

FA: Dru and snoboy. In fact I am chestbeating from snoboy's computer right now. I should log in as him and ban somebody! evils3d.gif

You mean you have to use bolts AND GEAR on the same climb? Whoa. My mind is reeling. Is that sport or trad? I'm so confused. cantfocus.gif

So today Fern jumped on an old project that snoboy had scrubbed last year but never redpointed, and after an hour or two of work linked it together for an 11a/b first ascent. The route is just below Jug Slab in the Bluffs and climbs a copperhead seam thing past 3 bolts. w00t!
