      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] Weeping Wall, Bluewood, WA - 1/9/2010

Recommended Posts

Trip: Weeping Wall, Bluewood, WA -

 

Date: 1/9/2010

 

Trip Report:

We decided to head up to Bluewood's Weeping Wall on Saturday to see if we could find some climbable ice. With the warming temperatures we were skeptical but with the top rope accessible Weeping Wall knew we'd probably be able to find something to climb! Sure enough a few pillars were quite decent and we were able to setup a top rope and lap some short ice pitches. P1097158.jpgP1097184.jpg

The ice was seeping a little bit, but still fun nonetheless. There were some cool formations to look at as well.P1097195.jpg es.

 

Gear Notes:

top rope anchor gear

 

Approach Notes:

Parking at the Middle point trailhead. Walk up the road a mile or so to access the wall 75 yards off the road on the left.

I took a 'swim' too, when I blew a gusher near the top of the climb on a 35 degree day there a few years back. In the last ten feet of the climb, I managed to get soaked head to toe. Two thumbs up for short approaches and synthetic insulation.

are there any bolted mixed routes under those hanging pillars? It looks like a smaller version of the Genesis I area in Hyalite!

Relatively speaking yes, the closest town is Dayton, and it is very close to Bluewood ski resort.

 

Thats cool, I see you decided to stay on the east side of the state. Probably a good idea =) Looks decent.
