      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   11/10/22

      Huge thank you to Bellingham based The American Alpine Institute for being our sole sponsor, taking care of our hosting costs,  which is our biggest cost.  @Jason_Martin  of AAI reached out to me, and really wanted to support the forums.  They have supported us in the past,  and now stepped up to support us again.  They will be our sole sponsor for 6 months.   Big time, and they are a local climbing related company to boot!

I like your poster -- great image! But I suggest you call it the Methow Valley, not the Mazama Valley....looks like fun!

MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND May 25-28

 

DIRECTIONS TO THE CAMPOUT LOCATION:

 

Traveling east over WA Pass: The property/cabin is approx 4.5 miles past the turn off to Mazama on the North side of the road. It is also approx .5 miles before you cross the Wyman bridge over the Methow river where the Goat Creek rd merges. (so traveling w on Hwy 20 look for it on the right about .5 miles after crossing it) There is a metal gate which is now locked. The fencing is zig-zag style stacked railing. If you intend to arrive before Friday evening sometime, please call me at 206-714-4300 for the combo.

 

You do not need a SUV to get in. Any regular car is fine. The driveway meanders back into the woods. The tent camping area is accessed via the left at the fork when you see the cabin.

 

Bring water or expect to hike 1/4 mile to the river to get it. Also, bring fire wood if you can. All I ask is that you leave the property in better condition than we found it!

 

Any questions, call me or email me at dpparker60 at hotmail.

 

ski ya soon!!!

Anyone want to carpool up to WA pass on Friday afternoon or evening? I can drive or a be a passenger. I have a ski rack.

 

If you are from the Seattle area, I'd meet you in Mt. Vernon, and we could leave a car at a friend's house there.

We also need briquettes. There are at least 2 webber grills we can have going. I'm bringing a chain saw and another might be good too. Some loppers might be handi. I;ll assume we'll have enough stoves for other type cooking for coffee etc.

Olyclimber,

If you want to go up there this weekend, I will ski with you. Or just for a day and a half or something.

I would love to go, but my ski kit isn't put together yet. The last part (teh bindings) are coming with TEH GAPER, but it won't be assembled till the following week. Plus I have to study all weekend :cry: SUCK!

 

But I recommend everyone go if they can make it. I heard there will be a keg of very good beer there.

We can mount bindings at the party OLY, so you'd best find a better excuse!! :rolleyes: Not only that, but some people are coming to climb... not ski! :o :o

I can't stay for the weekend, and I hardly know anyone anyway, but I'm solo in my truck heading over hwy 20 Saturday morning. Coming from Whidbey (PT Ferry) and could give someone a ride if needed. Not coming back until Tuesday night after some climbing at WA pass though, so you'd probably be on your own to get home.
