      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!

Pictures requested: East Butt SEWS and Mt. Index

Recommended Posts

Freddie B is looking for a couple pictures for publication.

 

Please post what you have for the East Butt of SEWS and a good quality shot of the North Peak of Index from the Road.

 

Please post 600X800 max. We can get a hi-res version to Fred later. I'll point him to this thread after some quality entries have been posted.

 

You won't get any money, but you will get your name in print as a photo credit.

I think a shot of climbers on the EB of SEWS taken from the summit of NEWS might look pretty cool. Anybody have a shot like that?

don't have any long range shots, but here's a couple of my wife from the route itself:

That is a fabulous pic!

it takes a sharp photographic skill-set like joshk's in order to render me palatable to the naked eye!

Have you got the negative Joe? It can be scanned and made pretty high resolution. That does have the makings of a good beta shot for a book.

If someone wants to crop the powerline out, that would be cool.

BUMP

 

Howdy folks. Some good shots of Index. It would be nice to have a better picture of the East Butt on SEWS. I think Fred wants one from the base or the approach looking up at the buttress. Anybody have anything like that?

 

 

He also wants a good picture of "the west side of Mt. Hood". Not sure if he means a long-range shot (like from PDX?) or something a little closer.

He specifically mentioned winter views that showed Yocum Ridge, when I talked to him several months ago. My guess is a 'perspective' view that showed YR in good relief is what he would like.

I completely forgot about that picture...definitely captures the moment, with nothing being visible 500 feet away. Awesome epic descent 1 mile from the car...

I got, like, shopping bags full of pictures of Index. And then there's the digital stuff.

 

East side? west side?

 

Gimme a day or two to look...

Dumped the shopping bags and rummaged through the stuff. Nothing in there I think is too hot in the guidebook sense.
