      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!

Supercrack in central Oregon?

Recommended Posts

The trophy should be a bronzed pile in the shape of beacon rock (with slinged little toothpick trees sticking out of it and loose plastic dogs running around the base taking dumps).

But seriously, now that all this beta's been published on the climbing website of record, I'm going down there this weekend with all my pals. We'll be toproping the first 5 feet of all your favorite routes. Thanks in advance for your patience.

Cool! I'll finally run into some of you. I climb there every weekend and I never see any of you out there. If you have more than a tripple set of cams you can actually make it all the way to the anchors!

I'm sorry I missed you and your 45 buddies out there Friday and Saturday. They must have had better plans to climb somewhere else. I even had 12 of each size cam for you to supplement your rack with! Maybe we'll see you there next week.

That's pretty cool that you can be on your computer while climbing 90' handcracks. 22 cams, you must really like to stich it up! I thought my rack was rediculous with 12 of each camalot. 22 WOW! That's more than you need for even the longest IC routes. You are deffinately the coolest!

I went over there yesterday and found it no problem. Bit of a hike to get to. If you've ever rafted the Deschutes and you're a climber then I'm sure you've seen it.

Yes. I have the names and ratings for the 60 some routes that I'm aware of over there. Just like IC...it kind of depends on your hand size. I know that Gold Rush is 5.10- for most guys, but for any girl...It is solid 5.11....JR Token is a 5.10+ for the dudes and pretty cruiser 5.10- for the ladies. A good 80% of the routes there are in the 5.10- to 5.10+ range. Like any good trad area.....the ratings are a bit sandy. Currently the hardest route there is 5.11+ with potential for some hard 5.12's. Nothing is really easier than 5.10-.
