      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!

Red Rock First Ascents (Caution: Lots of big pics)

Recommended Posts

Well, I've been away from the NW for awhile and several of you have been curious as to what I'm up to. I've been in FA city (aka red rocks). You could do FA's here every weekend for the rest of your life and still not get em all. Pretty good routes can be found too. Not alot like the moss filled things you have to dig out in the forest up in the NW alot of times. Anyway, alot of these are in the new RR guidebook (which is awesome) by Handren. Others have gone up more recently. In any case I'll post a few pics of the routes and probably a few FA reports as I get time.


Right Canola Crack 5.7



Seppuku 5.11 600ft



Seppuku - top of first pitch



OW negative (Seppuku is the S crack to the left)



The Shamrock Roof on Celtic Cracks 5.10b 1000ft




Topping out on the Minotaur 5.9X 1200ft
