      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!

WA PASS - Tues or Wed

Recommended Posts

Anyone want to meet at the Pass this Tues or Wed? I'd be coming from Omak so if you live around here (fat chance) we could carpool. I'll lead 5.8, ten years alpine climbing.

I want to go climb in Washington pass if you're still looking for a climbing partner. Don't really have any trad experience, since I've only cleaned a couple of pitches and messed around with it some. I have lots of mountaineering experience and have been very dedicated to rock climbing this year. Mostly done sport routes, but I've started to assemble a rack but only have a couple of cams and a set of nuts.

 

Let me know if you're still looking and what route you were thinking of. I've got Monday through Thursday off of this upcoming week. 360.510.0717

Lucik & Cricket,

 

I am close to you and thinking of heading over with another on Tuesday. I am looking at the following routes:

 

South Early Winter Spire,Direct East Buttress,5.11,10 pitches

North Early Winter Spire,West Face,5.11,7 pitches

North Early Winter Spire,FlyCatcher/E. Buttress,5.10b,10 pitches

Chianti Spire,East Face,5.10,6 pitches

Vasilki Ridge/Juno Twr,Clean Break,5.10c,13 pitches

Cedar Creek Wall,Solitude,5.9,13 pitches

Cedar Creek Wall,Estatic Cling,5.9,13 pitches

 

I will see if my partner bails or not and if you want to car pool it might be a good plan eh?

I've mostly been doing scrambling stuff this year, so I'm not up for anything too intense. If I was leading, I was thinking of the old standbys like the Becky Route or Cave Route or the Southwest Rib on the South Spire. One day, I'd really like to do the NW corner on the North Spire, but I'm not up to leading the 5.9 pitches at this point. The NW face of Kangaroo sounds interesting. Kane - you and I would be fairly close logistically but you're definitely climbing harder than I am right now.

Hey man, I just love to climb, no matter the grade. Would you be up for a 5.9 route? I ll have to look at a guide book and see what the routes you mentioned are like. There is a 5.9 on one of the spires,( I forget) that is a hike up from the Blue lake trail. Other wise, maybe the beckey route is fine, I have never been on it personally, or been too it.

Kane,

 

 

I'll PM you my info and if you want to get in touch ring me and we'll chat about climbing. Not sure how much my partner will want to do and maybe 3 wouldn't be so bad.

 

Check your PM's

 

Chris
