      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!

[TR] Prusik Peak - West Ridge 10/20/2008

Recommended Posts

Trip: Prusik Peak - West Ridge

 

Date: October 18-19, 2008

 

Trip Report:

My sister, Booth, and I spent the weekend enjoying the beautiful brilliant larch trees in the Enchantments. With the sunny skies, we were inspired to head up the always-classic West Ridge (5.7) of Prusik Peak. We simulclimbed the route in a couple of quick pitches, and had a great day!

 

I've posted lots of photos (including some night photography as usual) from our weekend in the Enchantments.

Great photos, as usual. Fantastic time of year to be up there. I always look forward to your trip reports for the photos. I am unhappy to note, however, that one of the photos seems to show you camping on vegetated ground, which in a busy place like The Enchantment Basin seems to me a very unfortunate practice.

Unfortunately, melting hoarfrost during the sunny day turned the usually great camping at the head of Gnome Tarn (which you can see in the first photo above) into a sodden mush...hence, the poor backcountry edicate....sorry....
