      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!

First climbs in the Cascades?

Check out the Fisher Chimneys route on Mt. Shuksan. It is one of the finest moderate routes in the range and is like a grand tour of the Bernese Oberland.

As for rock climbing, smith rock is probably the best rock climbing within 700 miles of Seattle.

A fine moderate - yes

 

The Bernese Oberland - not

I started climbing last summer and the North Twin Sister was my first one. Great day, full of variety: bike up logging roads, exposed class 3/4 scramble on great rock, glissade down the north face, bike down to the car. Go earlier in the season so the north face is snow, rather than scree.

Also: Shuksan, Sahale, Eldorado, Temple/High Priest (Enchantments area)...

If you are in the Oregon cascades, Mt. Washington North Ridge is a nice little jaunt.
