      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!

Ice climbin

Recommended Posts

Not a whole lot of ice in Lillooet.

Saw Cascadeclimber and group there. Met up with Lyle (Ice Ninja) and got smashed. He was showing us some great photos of his first ascent of Mount Dimsdale. Then told horror stories of how he once had his back broken from and acccident shocked.gif" border="0 and also loosing a crampon midway up an ice climb and still finishing it by stepping on his other foot and smearing the ice with his boot heheheh.

Saw avalanche from Night N Gale. Road was major hazard leaving out of there. Falling rocks, crazy dogs running in front of car, intense rain and winds...

We had a good time. Wish there was more ice.

Too bad. I think me and Ade get along fine anyway. We did not bash anything that was trying to form. The way I see it I did him a favor and told him how the routes looked.........

I agree, I've lead both Icy BC and Waite For Spring in much leaner conditions than those pictured here. That ice is fat!

You'd be pressed for a stubby tied off screw at that for the first 40 feet or so on Waite.
