      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!

Botanie Falls

Recommended Posts

Lyle or anyone. I am looking for beta on Botanie Falls near Lytton. We tried to find it Thursday afternoon after doing Oregon Jack in the AM. We saw some ice from the road, and headed straight up to it. This was located on a steep headwall about 800 vertical feet from the road, and 40 minutes. The ice was maybe 120' and W6, and thin. This did not fit the book discription, so we headed farther up one of two gullies to the right of the headwall. We found many short steps of ice 15-45' W2-5, but no 90 m of W4 as the book describes. I led as short dirty pillar of W5, for 25 feet which ended in a bush. We ran out of time, so we had to head down. Both of the gullies had drainage/ice. Did we not go high enough?
