      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!

Darrington

Recommended Posts

My partner and I attempted the Blueberry Route on Exfoliation Dome at Darrington 2 weeks ago. We climbed up to pitch 4 and had to bail because of nightfall. The route is in excellent condition and the crux + slab areas are bolt protected and the route has double bolted and chained rappel anchors. Plenty of protection up to pitch 3+4 where the bolts start.

You mean they didn't move it over by Vantage? I thought it might have suddenly gotten dryer there.

My guess is that perhap you started out on the West Buttress and then ended up straying onto Dark Rhythm on the third pitch. The West Buttress is all trad except for two bolts. Dark Rhythm has bolts that start at the very beginning.

How far is the road open? I think there was a thread about access here a little while back but I can't find it. Anyone got it?
