      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!

[TR] Paulina Falls - just ice bouldering 11/26/2007

Trip: Paulina Falls - just ice bouldering

 

Date: 11/26/2007

 

Trip Report:

Checked out Paulina Falls today. There wasn't a line that I wanted to do without having a belayer. (was up there by myself) I did some fun ice bouldering on the right falls though. If it stays cold or gets colder anyone want to head up there this Friday or Saturday?

Falls on climbers right. There was a line of ice connected top to bottom on the right but very thin/steep.

I'll be visiting Bend Dec. 21-27. Any new Paulina Falls beta? (Is it worth packing ice gear?)

so yea, anyone been near there and could make a guess as to what the ice is like. I want to take some newbies out for some TR and was hoping this might work for MLK weekend. Guesses? Anyone? Guesses?

Was climbing at Paulina Falls Thursday. Everyone was a bit surprised with the warm conditions considering the sub zero temps we have been having for several days in a row. The ice quality was rather poor but climbable. A member of the other party climbing on the left side of the falls was lowered into the open creek at the base of the falls swinging out of control, and lucky he didn't get hurt.
