      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!

how's that approach?

 

The approach is tough. Go over the fence & down scree to the base of the route, avoiding the river & sniper fire from the overprotective security guards.

 

The top of the route might look problematic, but the feds will have a complimentary chopper waiting for you.

Climbed Drury yesterday. Its in pretty solid and the approach is hard-packed with low avy danger. Should be in for a while longer if it stays moderately cold. Lots of other flows are formed up in the drainage as well.

Hubba-Hubba is fat too, with several flows on either side.
