      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!

first ascent [TR] South East Mox Peak- The Devil's Club, First Ascent of the East Face 9/1/2005

Recommended Posts

I'm a teeny bit confused. Do I need to get back in there & photograph the E face of ESE Mox?? & also the E face of SE Mox? Because that last one would be REALLY tough, getting in there between those pts. We're talking 90 deg. bank here, 50 ft above the col. YIKES!

let me add my voice to the chorus saying holy jesus and baby jesus! that was an intense read. sounds like a true partnership, both climbers totally relying on each other.

if i assume correctly that these are it as far as large unclimbed "distinguishable" faces go in the cascades.

blake, there are a shitload of 1,500 foot faces and ridges still unclimbed in the cascades. i am fully awe of this.

 

i'm talking the big mac daddies. what's the height of the big guys left? i know there's just armies of nerds reading this that know the answer w/o having to look it up.

I think Klenke is just verbalising probably what a lot of other people are thinking and you shouldnt let it take away from your climb, and it sounds as if it hasnt since you dont climb for nothin but fun. I think the great debate of summitting and accomplishng a major portion of a route and claiming FA's will always be an area of debate. But probably better to take that to another thread and to keep this one about your major and awesome accomplishment

Don't forget, 'Thank you Jesus!!" smile.gif

 

I cannot even fathom that thing. I am always impressed on how far we can push the human body and psyche. And I can honestly say I will be quite happy with my view of Mox from other more attainable summits in the N Cascades.

 

I'll raise a pint to the two of you tonight!! bigdrink.gif

As someone who has said the same thing, I would like to call bullshit right now. You probably already feel better.

Shit man, I'll wait for the telepherique to be built before I go in there.

 

Extremely impressive effort considering the approach and the climb by themselves would be considered total sufferfests. Sick, for sure, bitches!!!

Out there. glad you made it back okay. appreciate the use of big colorful runners for photography and maybe morale. great photo of 'Mike fully committed' with the peaceful U-valley below. but what the hell were you headed for in that shot?
