      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!

Coach's Crack-5.9 all for feet. 10a texture only

Crack to the right of coach's-10

Climbing the diagonal crack on the wall to left of coach's crack via layback/texture only 5.11a

Spinechopper (Crack on the N facing overhanging wall)-10a all for feet-11 texture only

 

Sounds about right, except for:

 

Crack on the right side of overhang, using rock immediately above crack to access the top-5.9 all for feet. 10b/c texture/crack only

 

I saw Jeff Robertson do that brutal shallow fist to get the swing to the top, and .10 b/c it is not. I could never commit to the swing move.

 

Slab to the right of the roof, locks and texture only, .10- slab, classic.

 

North wall: left side classic .9+ to scary .10+ to the notch. Sit-start makes it harder. Much.

Right side: rocks: .10, texture?

 

South Wall: classic 5.9 to shallow flaring .10; Sit start makes the first bit .10-; Texture at the start .10-; Again, I saw Jeff do this texture only to the top, and I would guess scary .11+

 

Nothing tops the Lad's double dyno to the notch on the North Wall, however.
