      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!

first ascent [TR] Lemolo Peak (erstwhile Hardest Mox) - NE Buttress ("After Hours") V 5.10- R 9/12/2008

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the comments y'all.

 

Rolf or I will put a line on John's picture; we do recommend the route, tons of good climbing on well-featured rock with the requisite dollop of alpine choss. 4 or 5 stars in our books.

 

I got a couple reactions to the TR that prompt me to clarify: the bit I wrote about mutual disrespect, etc. is a (perhaps poor) satirical treatment of the caricature of Rolf by me and some of his friends. It's for my own entertainment--if you know him, you know he's a good dude, much like most folks around here, except perhaps with higher standards... and the ability to send the sickness when I pulled up lame. The abusive talk is in jest and adds levity when commiserating through a shiver-bivy or other setback. Enough of that.

 

Lots of people getting cool stuff done in the Cascades this year--I'm stoked that we added a morsel to a productive season in the home range. Also happy to share any info. with future interested parties.

i suspect there are quite a few people who post or lurk here that would enjoy this route and probably could do it in a very long day rt from camp. difficulties are concentrated in the middle third. the remainder has climbing up to 5.8 or so. we bivvied in the 3rd class terrain near the snowpatch shown on john roper's photo. this would just be a standard route in the canadian rockies.

 

thanks to john roper and john scurlock for the photos.

we share a vile and putrid love

 

Dude, the love between Team A and Team B is clearly doomed, kind of like the Montagues and Capulets.

 

I am, as always, in awe of you both.

They don't have devils club on the Alberta side of the Rockies. It can't stand the Albertans.

 

And all the limestone is waiting to fall on anyone foolish enough to get close. Albertan or not.

 

Nice route btw :tup:

Eric (Lunger) went climbing three times this summer. Once he went to Index. The other time he did a first ascent on Tilly's Tower. And the third he climbed this. Something to be said for quality over quantity.

Sick.

 

Both parts of this duo consistently set the action/talk bar mighty high.

 

Looking at the photos is a vivid reminder of how much credit the original crew deserves for pushing into the unknown.
