      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!

I recall Meatgrinder (in between Z Crack and Dogleg) having what seemed like a mandatory fist jam.

 

Blue camalot for me is the transition from cupped hands to fist. True fist is more like #4 friend.

#3 camalot is still considered a hand crack unless you have no technique or are a chick.

 

whatever, maybe if you are a fat fuck wave.gif...i use fist jams in #3 cracks, i ain't a chick and i know how to climb cracks...

In that case you must be 1 fat fucker boxing_smiley.gif

 

My technique doesn't suck, and any time I start jamming forearms and throwing in arm-bars, it aint' no f-ing hand crack. I distinctly remember the topsection where I whish I knew how stack hands/fits, and throwing in a nice knee lock to rest on.

 

I'll make you a deal... I'll belay you and you can take anything up to a 3.5 friend, which should be more than sufficient for "hands" hahaha.gif I'd be fun to watch you try and stack cams or hexes to protect the top the_finger.gif

 

Mushmaker is perfect hands the whole way though! fruit.giffruit.giffruit.gif

The Papoose. Laid Back is 70' of grunty hands and Mushroom is a sustained thin hand crack. Mercury Vapor looks excellent as well. In the Smoke Bluffs these routes would be more popular than Penny Lane, at the Papoose they go begging for climbers. Check them out.

 

although I didnt make it to laid back..Mushroom is stellar and Mercury Vapour was awesome!!!! 10b...highly doubtful..more like 5.9..mushroom was more sustained.

 

I bet Mushroom is the first crack to dry in all of squamish..in the sun, no trees on top, in fact the crack just blanks out at the anchor. I agree with Darren..Mushroom would have a line up and poished to shit..I would do it over and over again..next time ill walk over to laid back

Thought I would revive this thread. I haven't done nearly enough crack climbing lately and hands are soft and weak :(

 

I compiled all the posts into a single listing of grade, name, location, and crux/notes. A few of the climbs I don't know or don't know the grade on so I could use some help!

 

Cheers!

Josh
