      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!

Exit 32 a good spot for this weekend?

Recommended Posts

I have been accumulating trad gear piece by piece over this winter and want to get out and practice placing gear and hanging belays and anchors (all right off the ground) and was wondering if Exit 32 or 38 would be worthwhile to go to this sunday to practice. (will it be too wet or mossy/slimy?). I'd prefer to keep my drive as short as possible so thats why i was thinking exit 32. I've never been there but am fairly familiar with some of the areas there...any recommendations on what wall or route to practice on (a few feet off the ground) if its even worth going to in the first place.

 

Thanks

 

or would index be better/worthwhile...a bit further but not too much

Minimal trad at E32 and E38 unless you want to incorporate bolts in your practice. Plus wet. I concur with RuMR because the last I heard there are quite a few cracks at Index. Try Great Northern Slab area first.

i used to practice my gear placements at 32 just past the black wall. There are a few gear routes, but they are super short. I am not sure how much hanging belays you will be able to build, but there are definitely a handful of easy and short trad routes all in one small area.
