      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!

Yeah - those pics are amazing. For the last pic, all that's missing is the obligatory "Anyone Gonna Get After This?" caption. Too bad about the hanging, bowl-shaped, perfectly-positioned-to-loosen-up-at-the-first-hint-of-sunshine, Snowfield O' Death looming above the entire route.

Is it the giant obvious one trending to the right? It looks much lower angle from that perspective. It certainly does look like a classic ski line. I have faith Sky and/or his compatriots will return... grin.gif

I heard some folks went out to ski it a while back, but it wasn't super cooperative.(?)

 

I think Sky and some other folks I don't recall have had his eye on this coulior for a while - if I remember correctly.

Here you go... yoda.gif

If anyone wants to go in there and drop the line, drop me a line.
