      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!

You mean driving the Mowich Lake road?

Yes! We had about 20 feet visibility driving up the road the night before. By far the scariest part of the trip. Either that or when I got caught away from a snowpatch and had to use pumice for TP...

Mowich rd in a metro. Crux. Stupid road grader sitting idle on the side of the dam road. If they are low on funds I will drive the damned thing-with a lungdart in my hole.

Observation Rock, it would seem, is ice climbing's answer to the Tooth

Does that put Big 4 Ice Caves in the same boat as exit 38.

It's a nice day climb. The actual Peak\formation is called Observation Rock. It sits right below the Ptarmigan Ridge of Rainier. Great views.

 

On the note did Lawgodess and Col Von Spankherbutt climb it or what [Confused]
