      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!

Also I would call almost any newer route on Prussik(anyhting say after the early 80's) a variation of a variation.

 

It is such a nice crag.

Stellar Eclipse on Silver Star. Probably takes in the same subsummit, Whine Spire, as Gato Negro, then continues to the top.

Dan and Forrest are the only ones who have made it to the base thus far. If I remember correctly, they didn't succeed except for the first pitch or two. I know of 4 parties who made an attempt and none successful.

 

Nice going on that one Carl & Jim. That route is getting the best of the alpine repeaters. Give it another couple of years...and a worthy partner.

What Great (or infamous) routes recently saw Second Ascents other than Gay-ton's climb of Inspiration?

 

Who the heck climbed the Soviet Route on Bonanza and what did they experience?

Maybe this should read "Great Looking climbs (to me) w/o known second ascent".

 

Some of them do look good, some mentioned don't seem to appeal to me...

Agreed but the discussion is appreciated. I would wager that you would be hard pressed to meet an alpine climber not interested in climbing (second ascent or not) Disappearing floor on Hardy.
