      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!

Trip: Kang Nachugo, Rolwaling Valley, Nepal - South Face to West Ridge

 

Date: 10/17/2008

 

Trip Report:

Hello CC friends,

David Gottieb and I just returned from an incredible journey in the Nepal Himalaya. We spent 47 days making the beautiful journey through the Rolwaling and Khumbu valleys, climbing peaks and having a great time. Our main objective was the unclimbed Kang Nachugo (6,735 meters) in the center of the Rolwaling Valley. We made the first ascent of the peak over 5 days, summitting on October 17th. I've posted a full trip report on our Climb Nepal blog: www.climbnepal.blogspot.com. Check it out.

 

Here are a few pictures from the trip:
