      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!

[TR]The Brothers: To the three asshole trundlers:

Recommended Posts

To the three climbers who camped at Lena Fork in a Gaurada tent last night and were the only other party on The Brothers Sunday:

 

Don't ever let me meet or see or otherwise have contact with you. It will be bad if I do. We were the party 1000 feet below that you tried to kill by repeatedly trundling garbage-can sized boulders down the south couloir as you whooped and laughed from the large ledge just above/left of The Hourglass. Only after repeated shouts over a 10 minute period did you cease your drunken binge. Some of the boulders you were releasing started secondary slides, one which showered the area directly above us with car-battery sized rocks. Thanks. What were you thinking? This is a popular route and it is only sheer luck that other parties weren't present to dodge today's version of "fun". Your continued presence above us in the couloir made the area unsafe. Although we could have easily caught up to sloths like you and had words, we turned around. My somewhat religious brother-in-law and his 18 year old son are the only reason your unoccupied tent did not end up slashed, crapped in, or urinated on when we returned to your camp. Instead I gently placed a 10 pound rock at the peak of your tent to remind you that we were not pleased with your performance today. If you read/post here...which I doubt... try taking some common sense with you on your next mountain adventure.

 

And fuck off.

"My somewhat religious brother-in-law..."

 

Let he who is without sin trundle the first stone.

Thanks

The couloir was totally dry. This was before the big storms came through in April, so the conditions now may, or may not be similar. Generally, the south couloir is preferable in early season when it is snow-filled. Later in the summer it becomes a rubble-fest.

KYLE, I was just up last week on Tuesday 6/14 and conditions were good. (weather wasn't, but oh well)

 

The south couloir snow was very climb-able, but I wouldn't wait too long. Condidtions are ideal now, but the snow is melting out in the narrower sections. When the snow bridges are gone, it will be a little trickier..

Tweezer, yes crampons were a must in my opinion. I suppose you could do it without them, but I wouldn't want to.

 

Hey I'm in Gig Harbor too..

Good luck on Constance.. Should be fun.

 

Yeah my crampons took a beating with the snow/rock/snow/rock routine, along with the weather. I just couldn't keep anything dry.

 

I'm actually by Glen Cove if you know where that is. Actually on the Key Peninsula.. So outside GH city limits

Undermind-Are you serious I live on camp seymour haha whata yah know. Crampons came in very handy.

Fairweather- thanks for the chat and advice. Did the finger traverse (very appropriately named.) The summit may have changed or mabye Im a puss but we had a hard time getting on top of the summit block had to do some exposed 4th low 5th to get up on it. Over all it was a very burly Long ass climb.I think the OMCG under rates the mountain Thanks for the help.

5hr up from lake

3 down

Bikes were the best part

Nice summit! Did you come down the same way, or follow the Terrible Traverse? Post some pics!

 

Nice chance-meeting you at the Tacoma REI. We'll have to get together soon for some Olympic Mountain epic.

Fairweather- I will definitely post some as soon as they get developed, I just got back from the east coast so itll be a few days. I would love to take on an Oly peak with you some day, ( Im more happy to trade a flight for a climb, let me know).Oh and yeah we did come back the same way, I set a few nuts and slings, but that piton was a nice reassurance. By looking at the TT i just assumed I might as well go back the same way ( a tough decision after hauling 4 pickets up there.) Thanks again for the help.

BC- Nice man. If he is still around he should come to the centennial campfire later this month. It’s a huge even and all are welcome. Call the camp if you or your families interested (253) 884-3392

Come on man it only had 6 errors, haha. Not sure if I was drinking that night, although I do often find my self surfing the net while intoxicated. Safer than climbing or flying.

I did that 2 yrs. ago........and when we came back down from the lake to our bikes ..that were stashed by the road......hornet nests sprung to life from our handle bars as we picked up the bikes......it sucked.....but it was worth it to be up on constance and take the ride down
