      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!

Favorite Tuolomne Climbs

Recommended Posts

A few years back,I was working in the bay area.It seemed like Tuolomne was always my area of choice.In my opinion,

it is home to some of the finest slab/face routes in the

world.Most of the classic's are run out with 1/4" bolts.

On more than one occasion,I would be way out from my last

piece of pro wondering what I was going to do next.Only to

find an old rusty 1/4" hidden in a patch of dark colored rock staring me in the face.Relieved,I would start laughing

hysterically.When I would regain my composure I would clip

and move on.Some of my favorites were Crescent Arch,The Vision,Shadow of Doubt,Aqua knobby,Needle Spoon,Shit Hooks,Lucky Streaks,and Rosanne.Roseanne on Fairview Dome

might be the best,well worth the run out on the upper pitches.Fairview has got to be the finest crag in the

country that is easy walking distance from the car.The

rock has the most amazing colors and features of any that

I have climbed on.

Needle Spoon & Dike Route, both excellent

Darth Vader's Revenge, drawer-soiling runout

Fingertips, super-squeaky friction

brings back memories...
