      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!

Trip: Paulina Falls Ice - Right Side of Main Falls

 

Date: 1/15/2007

 

Trip Report:

We skiied into Paulina Falls on MLK day to check out the ice after a few days of cold, and it was pretty nice! This was my first time on waterfall ice, and it had been a few years since my friend, Troy, had climbed ice, so we just TRed the right (south) side of the main (north) falls.

Not being an ice climber, I'm not sure of the quality of it all, but we had a hell of a good time! It was fairly easy climbing, I assume, felt like about 5.8 on rock (if that's even a valid comparison). The ice was wide enough to allow two different routes squeezed in there, although the routes were pretty short. It was quite dry for most of the day, drier than I had anticipated. The smaller south falls looked climbable, too, although it wasn't as convenient to set up a TR there.

The four of us climbed until about 4:30 when the warm sun left us, then we boogied out under the crimson sky. I think Jen and I are hooked, although we kind of live in the wrong place to enjoy it very often... Anyone been up this week after a bit of warmer weather?
