      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!

climbed the northern dihedral of snowcrick today with cappellini.

should have been called the northern dirty ditch.

however every move was sweet....especially when jammin into dirty, flowery, bushy, mossy hand cracks...

every pitch was solid .9+, 'cept maybe the last one at 5.8 or easy .9; highly recommend someone going for what I think might be the 4th or 5th ascent....unless more people know of repeats.....

one pitch i was pulling sheets of moss (at least 4inches thick)off the cracks and i found a piton underneath. cantfocus.gif

nonetheless, the route is way cleaner than before and deserves more attention.

 

it is located in the obvious corner along the right (north)

side of the shield.

start in gully below two tree and follow the killer crack system.

4-5 pitches...gear to 4" with emphasis in hand size pieces and tcus...although we didn't have helmets, its probably a good idea..in the shade in the late morning....goggles also helpful until this climb sees the traffic it needs...

 

 

enjoy...i think this dethroned MJane dihedral as my favorite route on snow tick.
