      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] L-town - Classic Crack- Leavenworth 10/14/2009

Recommended Posts

Oh my god, someone soloed Classic Crack? They must be a fucking badass. :laf:

 

By the way did you hear that Eric Mohler once soloed Brass Balls?

He pays people a buck every time that gets posted on cc.com.

 

Give me my dollar bitch!

Much like in "It's a Wonderful Life", every time Pope soloing Brass Balls gets a post, a mummy in Egypt gets disinterred.

Classic Crack is out Broughtons dude......at least one of them are.

I was in L-Town for the last couple days and walked over to Classic Crack and soloed it. Great route... but would be better if it was say, 100ft long. Unfortunately there were no mounties or Dave fucking Bale this time :(

Well, if Classic Crack is not hardcore enough for ya to solo, there are routes are either side of it that are the same height just a little stiffer. I don't see anyone soloing them......much

The one on the left is only 5.8 but is skeery to solo.

Yeah.. it was a bit flaring and required more layback type stuff then straight jamming IMO

Hey Fu*king, they have these things called cars. You can drive to Classic Crack from L-Town. You don't have to walk. :grin:

Outer Space has a 100ft 5.8 handcrack and it's a shorter walk from L-Town

We spent allot of time during the summers at the UW climbing rock, most midweek evenings in the summer. That place teaches you how to jam in such painful nasty concrete(tape up!) that if you spend anytime there, climbing Classic Crack will be a cakewalk. The UW climbing rock cracks are probably the best place to train for Yosemite and granite splitters that I could imagine.

Does anyone train there anymore or is it not in vogue? I left the Seattle area many moons ago.....

 

UW rock is not quite the scene it used to be but there's still a lot of locals that train there and there's always new kids/rookies starting out there.

I was at 8 Mile Camp.... not too long to walk. Outer Space does sound like a good solo too.
