      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] yosemite moderates - 6/18/2009

Trip: yosemite moderates -

 

Date: 6/18/2009

 

Trip Report:

My wife Sue, my son Clint and his buddy Craig and I had a great trip to

 

Yosemite last week. My favorite routes this trip were Harry Daley,

 

Sunnyside Bench Jam crack and Reeds Pinnacle.

 

My wife Sue following After Seven on Manure Pile buttress 29 years

 

after we first climbed it together.

Clint following first pitch of Nutcracker. We didn't actually climb

 

nutcracker. I backed off the 5.9 Nutcracker start and had to climb 2

 

pitches up Nutcracker to get above the 5.9 start so I could rap down

 

and rescue my back off gear.

Me and Sue, still climbing together after all these years.

John following second pitch of Reeds Direct. Reeds is a very lovely 10a

 

climb. It's not technically hard, just so continuous and vertical that it

 

wears you down. I had to hang twice when I simply ran out of power. I

 

need to work on my pullup power so I'm stronger.

Crystal following Sunnyside bench jamcrack 5.9.

Sunbather at the swimming hole above the Awanee, below Serenity

 

crack. The water pours 2000 feet down the cliffs and fills a couple

 

natural "hot tubs" just below Serenity crack.
