      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!

Zion Wall Partner Wanted

Recommended Posts

Posted this in the reg section too:

Want a partner for 2 or 3 walls in the fall (Late Sept or Mid Oct, flexible) in Zion. Thinking Touchstone for a warm-up, then a trade route like Lunar-X, Spaceshot, etc then a project I have in mind (1st clean ascent of obscure nailing route...I've scoped it before and it looks feasible but hard...probably mixed aid and free-climbing on the nailing pitches (2 or 3 pitches) at 5.11 C3/4. Rest goes free or easy at 5.10 C2-).

You should :

1. Have 2 grade V's under your belt.

2. Have your own wall gear...

daisies/ascenders/aiders (portaledge,big rack, wall hammer, and haulbag are probably not necessary as I have them)

3. Be able to onsight .9/.10 desert trad.

4. Have experience leading aid pitches up to a minimum of C2.

5. Have a vehicle (I don't). Of course I'll split gas and then some (probably 60/40 or something to offset the car wear and tear).

Not looking for a ropegun (although if you're a hard-ass you're welcome too), just someone who can move quickly and confidently on a wall. Zion routes are short, but October days are also short. If interested e-mail me at willstrickland@hotmail.com
