      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!

what kind of safety meeting??

 

I down for a little safety meeting right now. But I found out the hard way that I was not meant to have a safety meeting before I climb WI5. I take way to long and end up a bit more paranoid about my screws. :crazy:

We did a four pitch route on west side of banks lake saturday the 20th. We brought a drill and checked thickness of ice a couple of times and it was four to six inches thick the whole way.

The climb was WI 4-5.

Just came back Tuesday from Banks. Everything is going away fast. The top pitch of Cable started coming down on us as we did the lower pitch. We ran away. Emerald was pouring, but we topped the thing to the left as it was fairly dry. Zenith was very wet...as in drowning wet. Temperature was 37 when we left.

crossed the lake last weekend and did the largest of the 3 lines. It took 45min to cross the lake and the climb was 4 pitches of great ice.
