      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] Fraser Valley Rock Climbing - A Picture TR - 5/19/2009

Recommended Posts

Trip: Fraser Valley Rock Climbing - A Picture TR -

 

Date: 5/19/2009

 

Trip Report:

I heard a complaint about there being a lack of new climbing TR's on CC recently. I figured all my cragging is pretty boring stuff but I decided to try and up the hype by posting some pics and short stories from the past couple months.

 

For the past couple months i have been climbing a lot at the Harrison Bluffs and Nicolum Knob in Hope. I've cleaned stuff on the Up To Here Wall.. the Change Room Wall and the East Wall in Harrison and Dru and I put up a new line in Hope a while back...

 

I spent some time bouldering in Harrison and at the Old Hope Boulders too...

Being good at climbing is aid? :grin::grin: Seriously though, looks pretty damn cool, something to think about while writing a crummy scientific report. Thanks for the post.

Deep-water soloing minus the deep water - I suppose when you've just got to go ropeless this is the way to do it!

 

Its nice to see fewer ass shots of someone as they are placing gear. Great top-down view!

Marc, thanks for the picture TR. I'd like to see more rock climbing photo TR's like the one you've posted. A lot of rock jocks don't even check this site, but I'm sure they'd like the circus net pics.

 

Is that net still up? I'd love to get on those old J.Sandford routes ropeless.

 

Great TR!
