      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!

Gorge Ice

AFIVE- Looking smooth on Bent screw. We got on it early this afternoon but we saw you before we went to Crown. Gotta love the one swing placements!

 

The Jewel....FAT! Funny thing, we thought we were going to get slammed by wind on it this morning since we were getting knocked over on the 30 second approach, but the whole climb was in a pocket and virtually free of wind! Man that was good!

 

Thanks to everyone posting beta this week.

 

 

Nice heal spurs Goeff!

I heard the true story tonight, apparently, Layton was fighting for the last fish stick, Pete had the upper hand, so Mike retaliated by pushing him down the stairs.

Has the PDX drytooling continued recently? I haven't seen any updates recently.

 

I have been out of town the past three weeks so I couldn't organize anything... I'm going to throw something up for this week in a second...

 

The golden rule of PDX drytooling is if you want to go PM me. Anytime. I go roughly 2 times a week regardless of whether or not anyone else is available so chances are you want to go we can find a time to go. Fair? wave.gif

John - where were those photos taken? Looks like a good time. Was that really a mat-o-deathsicles at the base of that thing?

 

Mist Falls. PM me if you want directions.

 

Not a mat of deathsicles but definitely debris blown off the falls from the high winds.

If you look at the map in the PDX rock climbs book at the gorge ice. Everything in this thread that is reffered to as Mist falls, (I believe is referred to as Benson!) It is directly above Benson Lake. I think when I described where I was climbing in my first post sounded alot like the description in the book for mist falls. You do get coated in ice, but there are no trees off to the side like the description for mist falls. You also don't hike up a drainage like the description says. I am not sure, but it is my belief that these pics are at Benson. Those "death cicles" are branches of the bushes below which are encrusted in ice. Every thing in that area is encrusted in ice. Wayne....what is your take? I would imagine you recognize the place from the photos. The night time pics were at the same area as well.

So the climb must be named for the big 'ol mouth just below Marcus's left foot?

The melt out actually helped the Dagger party today. Lane retrieved a rope that got stuck on the last rapplel we did. It had tied a perfect overhand knot in the abalkov anchor as it was being pulled through. he went up yesterday and got the brand new rope back. Thanks Mister
