      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!

Recommended Posts

I haven't been to the base, but is sunny now and I think things are looking good for climbing this evening.

Yup, every Wednesday the weather is good. We're just south of Olympia, where are you coming from? PM me your email address and I'll send a waiver and directions.

Looks like this might be it for awhile, I hope I'm wrong. The friction was superb tonite, allowing me to redpoint Floater for the first time in a few years. Thank you Off for owning and sharing such a wonderful place. Duke

Just because we usually experience 25 weeks of generally wet weather from this date forward you expect the worst? Sad.

Well, with dry days forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday I haven't given up hope for another day. Gotta start earlier with the encroaching darkness though, so skip out on work after lunch.

 

Its been my pleasure hosting folks out here, I like it when people love this place as much as I do, and its a delight to climb with all you folks.

We got 6 pitches in today before it got dark- raindrops started falling as I drove home. What a great quarry season, new folks, 3 new redpoints, and plenty to work on for next year! Thanks Off!

IF it stays dry we've got a shot, but it isn't supposed to stay dry. I'll let you know tomorrow if we've got any hope in the immediate future.

Sunday was opening day, with most of the right side dry. Fickle weather gods willing the Wednesday should be a go, though at least four stalwart regulars will likely be out of town.

Looks like it will be dry enough, with the entire right side dry. I'll be out there starting about 4:00 I think, hope to see some folks

That's the SE end of Echo Rock, between Hidden Valley Camp and Barker Dam. Sweet handcrack left of the middle is Pope's.

Did you get your rack out down there or just waste yer time pebbling? We'll look forward to catching up with ya on one of these Wednesdays.

This Sunday was opening day, with the right end of things dry enough to climb, probably about 16 of 42 routes were climable. We'll start up the Wednesday thing now, though it looks like this week will be wet. Still, we're starting to hit the season. It sure was great yesterday...
