      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!

booyah. never-never-ham..the climbing land o'plenty!

 

yeah. you like sandstone friction runouts? Boat launch wall - just down chuckanut drive south of town. check the tide tables and go when it's low. you get to climb more =)

 

also, check out Mt. Erie in Anacortes.

 

or...make friends with a Western student and pay your way into the bouldering cave at the gym there. "the realm of the mattress people"

 

I wish Squamish was less than 30 minutes from The Ham...

The closest decent climbing is at Mt. Erie. ~40 minute drive

 

Yeah,the Larabee boat launch wall is ok... super runout and sandy. Good views though and pretty area.

You might check out Mt. Baker Rock, on the left 3 miles past Glacier on the MB Highway. 40 min. drive? Not tons or stuff but good quality metamorphosed igneous, and several of the harder routes stay dry in the rain. The dry cliff with the bolted 11s (and up) is a whole 1 minute walk from the road.

There is a Bellingham rock guide I got at an outdoor store downtown, but I don't know if it's available.

Bouldering at Larrabee is not stellar but quite fun, in a beautiful seaside locale.
