      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!

2005 AAJ Summary - SW BC

Recommended Posts

I am looking for details of "First ascents and Significant Climbs" for SW BC to include in the 2005 AAJ. The climbs should have been done in this calendar year to be included.


So far the list I have includes the following routes - I expect based on the previous years that this represents about 50% of what's been done, and the rest I will have to track down via phone and email. But in the meantime if you climbed a new route in SW Bc in 2005 or know of someone who has please post as many details as you can here or send me a PM.


The summary should include routes from Grade II to Grade IV. .V's and VI's get their own writeups. However I have included one or two here for completeness



Judge Howay, north ridge FWA

Stonerabbit SE face

Arthur Seat SE Rib

Alpaca - Alpika Slab

Matriarch -SW Face

Kookipi - Brambles Buttress Sky

Nesakwatch Spires - Sublimation

Robertson Peak - North glacier

Solstice Start and Gnomon Direct routes - Mt Athelstan


Speculative at this point (I heard a rumor) East face of Slesse - first free ascent.
