      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!

Ahh, right...was thinkin' the Slog route. Though not familiar w/ W. face I would be open to doing that instead. You up for it?

Not really, Bedal Creek is a bit of a thrash and I did my time last week on Bachelor Creek.

 

W. Face goes 5.4 to 5.5. From Bedal Basin, push on up traversing until you get to the west face route (it's farther than you think...), usually indicated by the water running down the route line. Once at the base, just go up, ignoring the reams of tedious beta describing the climb. Seems to me it was about a half-dozen real pitches followed by a bunch of simul-climbable stuff. A nice but very full day. There are bivi trenches just below the route. Bedal Creek is even more fun to hike out from in the dark !
