      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!

I climbed the DOE tis summer. I can say that its proabally a grade V to the top. Why not...Liberty Crack is a grade V and way shorter/faster. The last part of the route is a long meandering ridge that if climbed directly on the ridge the entire way would certainly be at least grade V. Its a big comlex face with many options to choose from. One thing to consider is that it is very out of character with the rest of the route; considering that I climbed it in my approach shoes(recommended). Next time I will proabably rap off after the hard pitches because those are the goods. The ridge certainly adds to the experience of the route- to climb a big peak like D-tail. But inn hindsight the first part of the route is the best. The rest...well you can decide for yourself.
