      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!

Thinking of doing "The Grand Wall" on sunday. anyone know how dry it is. if it is wet which pitches are wet? thanks


Just above the inverted layback pitch, the area called "The Flats" tends to get the most drainage. It is low angle and done often enough that the face climbing can be done wet as long as you use the same holds everyone else has. This time of year there might be some debris to deal with.


I think the trickiest part to do wet would be the mantle a little ways off the top of the Split Pillar. Everything else would be reasonably secure even if wet. I'd suggest rapping from the top of the inverted layback.
