      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!

Who climbed what?

Recommended Posts

We have a great climbing area on the N.Shore, along Lake Superior. I had never climbed rock there before (the ice is all inland, anyway). It was fantastic! Somewhat intimidating while standing on a car size boulder, staring at a great big wall in front of you and nothing but this magnificent, endless lake behind you...waves crashing. aaaah! [smile]

 

I spent a ridiculously loooooooong time on a particular climb that I honestly didnt think I could top out on. I dont know how or where I got the strength to finish...but I did. What a great feeling! [big Grin] I also learned what is meant by "sharp rock". My hands are ripped to shreds!

 

One person backed out on finishing the climb. her husband, a non climber, rapped down and they were going to take an "escape" route out. Unfortunately the water was too high and they couldnt get to it...so those of us in my group all learned how to rig a pulley system in the dark. Later, I read in a guidebook that the particular area we were in is the only place in the midwest you can truley be "marooned". Werd!

 

Alpinek (and V)- when I was on my outward bound trip we climbed the finger (?) next to the route you did, I believe. I remember wishing I was climbing that instead...looked like a lot of fun as I watched a couple rapp off the route. Glad you enjoyed it.

Prusik, West Ridge.

Little Annapurna

 

P.S. If you were the party on Prusik's Godiva route, did you guys summit before dark? Did you bivy on top?

Well, it was nothing exciting, but I got a late start on Sunday and hit Exit 38. Got in about 5 climbs back on Neverigene wall or however it is spelled. Good time, with good people. [big Drink]

More exploring on East Buttress of Big Snow Mountain. Broke off left from from the red line (previous route) where it makes the jog right under the shadow. Will post TR when pictures come back.

 

Clean granite (until you get right of the crest [shadowed part in picture]). Many pitches. Easy descent right now.

 

Go get it before they close the Middle Fork Road.

Really? Nice! How many pitches you figure? Worth cleaning up over the fall or a waste of time? Surprised it stayed sub-5.10

Princely Ambitions, Senior citizens In Outer Space and Battered Sandwitch at Index. No crowds. Took the wrong trail to Private Idaho and had to go throught the cave, what a waste of time.

2 easy routes at Seneca WV in the pouring rain. Never climbed in full on rain and I have to say I did not mind. Soaking wet, water running down arm, rain in eyes every time I looked up, wrinkled fingers, etc...

Friction was better than I thought it would be. I hope the sun is out next time. I would like to get on something harder than 5.4 [smile]

That looks like J'berg. Were you the guys who are so tough they needed to sleep on the gravel in the Cascade Pass parking-lot friday night?

 

PS thanks for playing

Nope, no sleeping in the gravel for me. I'm apparently both too old and not old enough for that shit.

 

The picture isn't Jberg, though I see the resemblence. The C-J couloir doesn't get that broken up.

 

Say, that wasn't you that bashed my car, was it?
