      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!

Bugaboo Beta?

Recommended Posts

Hey all:

 

I'm planning a Bugs trip this summer, and I'm looking for a grade V to aim for...something a little more commiting than the Becky-Chouinard, maybe something with more of a "wall" feel, but also as few pitches of 5.11 as possible, and definately none of that A3 crap.

 

Anyone have any favorites that fit the bill?

 

Tanks in advance...

Try Sunshine Crack on the NNE face of Snowpatch. I think it's only a IV though. Every kind of crack climbing you can think of and think there's only a pitch of two of 5.11.

do All Along the Watchtower on the N. Howser tower. fits your description perfectly. good info here:

Yeah, won't say I didn't notice west face of N. Howser...how's the aid on those "11+" pitches mentioned in the guidebook for All Along the Watchtower? Would I be leapfrogging bomber cam placements or playing with micro nuts for 2 hours at a time?
