      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!

Nice Colin! ... you should put that stuff on the cover of Alpinist. beautiful


Climbers talking about your climb all over the world. Especially in Slovenia, Italy and Germany. Patagonia is their playground.

I too think it's one of the best climbs recently. Kelly is coming to Vancouver soon. I am looking forward to see his slide show.

Thanks again, guys. Answers to a few technical questions:


For rack we brought 9 screws, 1 set of nuts, 6 cams, 5 pins, and 4 pickets. It was pretty much right on, although more screws wouldn't have hurt sometimes and we could've taken only 4 cams.


We had considered it, but decided not to bring a shovel.


It's hard to say how cold it was during our bivy, but it was certainly below freezing.


In addition to our 70m 9.2mm, we brought a 60m 5mm. We used it to haul our packs on the headwall pitch, and we also used it for a few rappels on the compressor route, although the 70m by itself would've been fine. We brought the 5mm rope mostly in case we needed to bail or descend via the West Face, in which case making full-length rappels would've been much better.
