      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!

The rappels should be totally straightforward: all the belays are in a direct line, and the wall is pretty steep with few flakes or cracks--just lots of nice, positive edges for the climbing!

next time try unimpeachable groping for some fun alpinclippin'. it's soft for the grade and lots o' bolts. super fun. 6 or 7 pitches if i remember. tops out same as ginger cracks. only a rack o' draws are needed too.

Inti Watana is indeed easy to rap. We rapped it last week to avoid the walk off Mt Wilson, not the final pitches of RA cool.gif
