      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!

yosemite in september

Recommended Posts

i'm hoping to get at least a week off in september to head to the most sacred of grounds in all of the world.

 

i'll be spending a good chunk of time with wife, cruising the backcountry by foot, but am hoping to kick it in the front country crags as well.

 

i know its a long shot, but wanted to put out the feelers and see if anyone was going to be in the valley or tuolomne in mid to late september (no skeeters, less tourists, cooler weather)

I'll be there for at least a week too. What are you guys planning to climb while there. Anyone interested in the Rostrum or I could be convinced to get back on the Steck-Salathe again. Can't wait to crank some king cobras too.

erik and gapertimmy, you should consider a traverse of the Kuna Crest starting at Dana Meadows and dropping down from peak 12,458 (or something like that) to Helen Lake and back out. If you have time, you can get Gibbs on the way out. Lot's of nice views, almost no trails and lot's of killer views.

 

Another one I havn't done yet is to start at Tioga and follow the range crest north as far as daylight permits (probably Conness if speedy) and out at Saddlebag. Awesome territory.

 

Don't even get me started on the joys of Tenaya Canyon!

Will be wrapping up a 2 month or so climbing roadtrip in Yosemite mid to late Sept, and plan on staying there 3-4 weeks. Looks like I've found a wingman for my roadtrip, and we'll be looking to climb a couple wall routes and generally mosey around and climb whatever in TM or elsewhere. Guy at Index was telling us about some 'Third Pillar?' full day 5.9 arete just outside the park that's outstanding that I wish I hadn't completely blanked the name of...

 

Anyway, will be there & interested in pretty much anything. [big Drink]
