      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] British Columbia - Gibralter Wall 1/7/2010

Recommended Posts

Trip: British Columbia - Gibralter Wall

 

Date: 1/7/2010

 

Trip Report:

Last Week Robert and I headed to Canada to climb Gibralter wall and then head to Banff for some more ice. we left spokane in the afternoon of the 6th. and made it to Cranbrook by nightfall. we awoke to -15F. By the time we reached the wall it was +5F, so we decided to give it a shot. We chose the right side of the wall. It was a wonderful day of climbing, the ice was brittle due to the cold, but we made it to the top. A few raps at dusk and we were off for a hot meal. We then headed to Banff for some more climbing with a quick stop at Fairmont Hot springs. Gibralter seemed to set the tone for the trip. A Great time with a great Partner. Cant Wait To get back up there!We only had an iPhone for pictures wich went dead after the climb for the reainder of the trip. 17454_226963872823_540547823_2685461_1526578_n.jpg

Congratulations Beau,

 

I am proud of you. You have come a long way in a short amount of time as an ice climber. You are like a good wine--only going to get better with age (and experience). Keep it up, for sure, and get some better tools while you are at it :-) !

 

Cheers,

 

Bob Loomis, Spokane, WA.
