      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!

the best crack in my little humble opinion.

9+ gear to 5-6"

hand jams, chimney moves, fist jams even a finger lock or two.

love it in the morn before the sun hits it....

gear to 3 maybe 3.5 for the fist crack leading to chimney, then small TCUs. Wasn't it rated 5.8 in the older 11worth guidebook? I've always thought it was a super good 5.8! thumbs_up.gif

 

Awesome route, its one I try to do a least once a year.

smoot gives it a 5.8 too but he may have just been copying the older guide book grade. Felt like a nine to me. Kinda scary coming off that half way ledge even

Grease? you want to squeak about grease? get on Angel next door! Got to agree Damnation is one of the best around here in that 5.8 to .9 range.
