      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!

Elwha Wall(Olympic Peninsula) Beta

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if the Elwha Wall gets enough sun this time of year to make it a good option for these 50-degree sunny winter days? If it stays damp and shaded, I'll hold off on checking it out till later in the season.

 

The latest Olympic Mountain Climbing Guide seems to have enough beta to get started out there, but I would love to connect with some folks who are personally familiar with it and possibly do some climbing together there.

 

Most of the grades are above my leading abilities for the moment. :blush:

Sherri,

The Elwha is usually pretty slow to dry out (lots of seeps). If this weather continues you may find a few pitches dry enough to climb (Earth and Sky, One shot Deal, and possibly The Trench)would be the most likely subjects. Also, there is other climbing available in the Port Angeles area that is less known, quicker to dry, and has some climbs more in the 5.8 range If interested pm or e-mail me, and I'd be happy to go out and climb with you and show you around.

Does Steve Tuford still own OMS?

 

Olympic Mountaineering pulled up stakes a year or two ago.

 

k.rose probably knows more about the details than I, but their departure left a gap in the community that has yet to be filled by its like.
