      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!

Leaving for 3 full days of climbing in a couple of weeks. Have the logistics all handled, but would like info on the climbs. I understand that we can get a home grown guide book when we get there, but would like to dream in the meantime.

 

Anybody know where I can find beta?

Hoping for multipitch in the .11 range, + or -.

Yes, I have found the descriptions for "space boys" - curious if anything else is available online.

There was an article on it in one of the mags a while ago. Anybody remember which rag, which issue? (I probably have, just haven't gotten around to finding it . . .

 

Thanks!

There was definitely an article in Climbing several years ago before I stopped taking the rag. I think it was in 1994 or 1995. I can check "the library" tonight when I get home and report back.

Here it is...

 

Climbing #142, 2/1/94 - 3/15/94, begins on page 84;

Climbing #146, 8/1/94 - 9/15/94, begins on page 104;

Climbing #172, 11/1/97, begins on page 56

 

There might be more, but that's all I got time for right now. HTH.

If you are looking for multi-pitch in the .11 range Devil's Path (El Sendoro Diablo 5.11, 6 pitches) instantly comes to mind. Another great climb is Time Wave Zero (23 pitches) with only two .11 pitches one 12a bolted closely enough to pull on quick-draws and many more pitches mostly 5.9 is worth checking out.

Matt I was there in November. Many new routes put up everyday. I am in Korea at the moment but I do have the newest guide book that was out in Nov. but I know there is a newer one. I will be home in about a week so can send you some beta. The guide book you buy in the US is crap (jeff jackson one).
