      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!

[TR] Sumallo Bluffs- Buzowski/Kippan 12/18/2005

Recommended Posts

Climb: Sumallo Bluffs-Buzowski/Kippan

 

Date of Climb: 12/18/2005

 

Trip Report:

Climbed the Buzowski on Saturday and it was just awesome! That whole area is just awesome and had tonnes of ice!!! The river crossing was tame and the approach was very bushy at times. Climbed the route in two pitches one 40 m and one 65 m,the last pitch is long and would be better as two pitches.

 

Landmark gulley was almost fully in but the upper curtain was not touching down. the rest including some possibly unclimbed lines were looking spectacular. Hopefully it stays cold enough to keep things from melting too much.

 

Pics are coming as soon as I find my cord to upload them to my computer.

 

Gear Notes:

screws and hip waders

 

Approach Notes:

River, bush then gulley, approach from 24 km marker rather than from Parking spot.

way to get out there, jesse- it took me a couple days to flick a proper pick while on the lead in the lilloet country too. managed to finally get that groovy rythym on the last 20m of vertical this weekend. and about your luck losing partners into the cold liquid... nobody fell into the stream this time? wink.gif
