      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!

Great read, congrats Alan!

 

Maybe it is time to venture over to the dark side, the Picket Range...

Its a very cool feature that Kearney climbed. Rolf and I climbed something that was probably pretty close to the North Face a couple years ago. I would highly recommend it as an excellent alpine moderate.

i think peter and i climbed more along the line of the north buttress to where it appears to intersect the kearney route at the ledge (about 2/3 height) then somewhere between the north butt and north face to the top. quite a bit of 4th class at bottom and top. lots easier to approach via terror creek earlier in the season....maybe they were concerned about the mcmillan glacier being broken up or just wanted to get acquainted with some new brush. more kearney loot for the next party....
