      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!

where to climb this weekend?

Recommended Posts

alright well I'm heading to the crags this sunday. my driver doesn't want to go too far, so i have the choice of three different places:

1) exit 32

2) exit 38

3) fossil rock

never been to fossil rock, and i've only been to x32 and x38 very little. i've got some beginner climbers with me, so there needs to be a lot of easier climbs (about 5.10b at the most). every opinion helps. please, help me out here! thanks!

Fossil is a waste of time, exit 32 is the only one you listed that is worth more then 10 minutes of your time.

yeah, but it's kind of a long drive from bremerton to leavenworth to only climb for one day. any other opinions?

X38 be you best bet...hit the far side...scone...then do a little jig at the Gunshow area...or go to Static and teach em how to climb the manly stuff! wave.gif

As much as I dislike 38, it is probably your best choice for taking soem beginner out. 32 has better climbing, but less easier climbs. Index is close by really good rock but with beginners you will most likely be limited to GNS. What about Erie, it is close by and I guess from what I hear has a lot of single pitch stuff?

x38...typically short road cut style climbs with too many people is my guess. But the FarSide area and crags around there definitely have fewer people.

I find the climbing uninteresting, the rock quality is poor, the crowds are a pain sometimes, but I usually head to place where that isn't an issue. The walls that I like most over there are Amazonia and Nevermind. Gunshow area is ok less people, but more spread out.

why do you dislike x38?

 

Because it's a GRID-BOLTED GUMBY-CIRCUS!!!

 

Here's the waiting-line at one of the area's "classic" "routes":

Static Point rockband.gif esp for newbies, teaches em good technique and how to "dance" on slabs. Was up there last weekend, perfect weather indeed...awesome views and good climbing...one of my favorite places.
