      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!

Deception is usually considered a 2 day affair because of a 6 mile approach to Royal Basin, but if you move fast you could do it in one long day (no longer than for Constance or the Brothers).

OW: I've scoped the north side routes on Washington. Some of em look really fun. Only bad part is the bushwack in, but this early in the season it shouldn't be too bad. Let me know how it goes.

Turn_one, the Jefferson Pass trail to Mnt Washington was very interesting. Nice view from the ridge. Next time on Washington I'll do the other trail head. I would like to go back to Jefferon Pass later in the summer with more rope, pro and and earlier start. I would like to crack a route up there. Later dude!

yeah robo, sure was cool. maybe the better option for the day would have been descending into the snowfield to the left and up the chute from there, cause i know the route at least originates along that ridge. if you're taking another stab, let me know, i'll join you. what do you have planned for the year?? did you have a [big Drink] in hoodsport?? later
