      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!

This forecast does not sound bad at all - it is very typical for the Fall and Winter months.

 

One Christmas a friend and I decided to camp out at the grasslands and climb at Smith. Well, we picked to go at the worst time. One of the famous Central Oregon inversions was going on at the time. The ceiling was very low, and most everything was socked in. It managed only to get to 20 or 21 that day. We were miserable.

 

We drove back to Eugene to find sunny skies, and the highs were in the 40's. So we ended up climbing at the columns the next day!

I'll be in Sunriver from tomorrow until Friday. Friday evening I will be pulling into the grasslands. Look for a dark Blue Subaru Ouback, with Oregon plates and a Yakima Rocketbox full of stickers.

 

Personally, I think it's too early to make a call on the weather (however, if I had a chance to go ice climbing, I'd be there instead of Smith). It probably won't be too bad.

 

See ya there JK, SK, Timm@y, and Ryland.

(PSST) YOU CAN CLIMB IN THE GORGE WHEN IT RAINS....THERE IS A CAPSTONE (PSST)

THURSDAY...RAIN AT TIMES. SNOW LEVEL 7000 FEET. BREEZY.

.FRIDAY THROUGH VETERANS DAY...RAINY AND BREEZY AT TIMES. SNOW LEVEL

6000 FEET.

 

You know, is it worth it to drive 9 hours to climb in the rain? I actually spent 2 days climbing at Smiff in the snow my first time there. then we bailed and went over to the west coast beaches and saw sea lions & shiznit.

Silly Canadian. When the forecast calls for "rain" at Smith, you can count on maybe needing to sit out one or two climbs, and enjoying an otherwise dry day. The rain will stop soon, the rock will dry out, and all will be good. In ten years of Smith trips, there have been perhaps ten days that have been total losses to rain. So go tug on some nubbins, already.

Too bad all those desert caves are closed to climbers, yet left open to cavers and kids partying, and motor cross assholes! Actually, Timmay or others who live in Bend, know anything about the few caves that are still open to climbers? I am guessing they stay dry during rain!
