      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!

Damn, we should have all been wearing our name tags. Nice to meet you, too, Ned. You were in the party of two, climbing the Beckey Route I presume? I was there with my niece and nephew, for one of their first "real" rock climbs.

I (red helmet) was there with my friend Ben (white helmet) climbing the beckey route behind you guys. I am glad we all beat the rain.

Nice, you guys cruised. Comparatively, we were total gapers when we climbed it last year, though Mike, you had a least a foot extra reach over my partner. You're too damn tall. :P

Every photo makes the route look so clean . . . . I had heard some bad reports of poor, loose rock higher up -- is that not the case?

It's not bad at all. The only part with bad rock is the top of p6 or so where most everyone aids off the fixed pins.

Gary is right - it is really not bad. However, the truly clean part of the route is on the first 4 pitches or so and thereafter it deteriorates noticeably. There is a significant amount of the Washington Pass oatmeal rock, flared cracks, and some bushes on the upper part of the climb.

 

Liberty Crack is cool because of where it is. The first four pitches are spectacular and the overall line is striking. If you want a wall climb that is steep and clean all the way - go to Squamish.
