      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!

TR: pdxers flee to oootah 2.10.05

Recommended Posts

The lack of snow in the PNW was getting us down. Way down. Fortunately Fshrgrl and I planned a trip to SLC 6 months or so ago. Unfortunately two of our friends had to bail due to a blown knee and surgery.


The cops were out in force at pdx. This would not be a bad beat:



Day 1 we toured from Alta to Upper Cardiff Fork via Flagstaff Mountain:



The Powerbirds were flying all over the place. There were moments where I felt as though I was back in L.A. during the Rodney King riots hunkering down at my brother's condo:



We were stoked to say the least when we first looked into upper Cardiff Fork; somehow we managed to ski Toledo Bowl before the heli folks did. Fshrgrl found a nice line and wasted no time:



The view from Flagstaff Mountain was a jaw dropper. We couldn't help but notice what amounts to the Wasatch style crop circles:



Day 2 we got spanked. We intended to do a "bi-canyonal" tour from Alta to Spruces via Days Fork taking the bus back to Alta. The south facing slopes had hardened considerably overnight and we decided to downclimb a bit, slap on the boards and bail for a half-day at Alta:



Day 3 we toured and lapped upper Mill D North Fork and met some real nice folks who shared their tea and showed us around:



In conclusion, we can't wait to go back next season! fruit.gif
