      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] Mt. Conness - West Ridge 9/13/2009

Recommended Posts

Trip: Mt. Conness - West Ridge

 

Date: 9/13/2009

 

Trip Report:

On Sunday Justin (another CC) and I climbed the West Ridge of Mt. Conness. After climbing in the valley on Saturday this was exactly what we were looking for. The approach was not as cush as Cathedral which definitely kept the crowds away. We shared the route with one other group led by another Washington climber that Justin knew well but hadn't seen in years. Small world

There was some fun exposed climbing along the crest of the ridge.

I enjoyed this climb quite a bit. I think the guide book calls it a 12 pitch 5.6 but we simulclimbed most of it. I definitely recommend it to anyone who ends up in Yosemite and wants to get away from the crowds.
