      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!

Found: Lower Slesse NE Buttress: Extensive gear

Recommended Posts

Ken and I climbed Slesse over the weekend, and a few pitches above the toe of the Buttress, we found a whole string of gear that made us suspect that someone had been injured while climbing, and the rope was eventually pulled without cleaning a lot of gear. Corrosion suggests that the gear was there all summer, which also makes me think that few parties have climbed the NE buttress this summer from the toe.


Please contact me if you know whose gear this is.


I will be in Seattle for less than two weeks.

No, sorry, there were only about 5 cams, and 3 nuts. And everything was placed. There were not "sets", or a gear sling. It does sound like you left your whole rack, not abandoned an incomplete pitch. In your TR you say you lost 5 cams, but the others belonged to your partner I guess. Still, call me if you want to describe what you lost.
