      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!

how do you get off Ed's Jam, Tieton?

How do you get off Ed's Jam at the Bend at Tieton?

We got to the top of the route yesterday and found two bolts with no chains. I figured such a beautiful climb would have chains. We left some webbing and rap rings. Two ropes got us down. Back at the car, we looked back and it appeared you could possibly walk off right...?

 

Aside from the descent issue it was a gorgeous climb! That may be the longest section of perfect hand jams I've ever had the pleasure to lead. It reminded me of Karate, but much easier (and longer)...same quality jams.

You could also walk off around the left end of the cliff and skip the rap entirely. Watch for snakes. We did that line on Saturday, it was pretty damned fun.

 

It's kind of nice that the top of The Bend is not peppered with chain rap stations.

That's by design. Thank the Makers. :tup:

oh, and cast your rope - i.e. don't be lazy and just lower it down the cliff. Ed's is a rope eating crack.
