      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!

Index or Darrington Friday

Recommended Posts

I have Friday off to climb, how about sometihng in Index or Darrington? I was thinking G.M. at Index and some stuff at the lower wall, and there's some routes I'd like to lead there too (easier stuff). In Darrington, I was thinking maybe Dreamer or Safe Sex, or something on Three O'Clock Rock. I can follow 5.9, lead 5.7. I've got a rope and a rack, but no car.

Yes, nearly all Darrington routes require a 2nd rope for rappels.


You can rap from at least one or two Three O'Clock Rock routes without two ropes, Dreamer was for years treated as a walk-off-the-back-side outing and, from the looks of it, I think folks are rapping the West Slabs route on Blueberry Hill with a single rope (but it means rapping from single bolts on Westward Ho).


You need a 2nd rope but do they have to be "doubles?" No.
