      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!

Trip: Colonel Bob Wilderness - Various

 

Date: 2/20/2010

 

Trip Report:

We spent the fine weekend in the Colonel Bob Wilderness and hiked up Colonel Bob peak, scrambled up Mt. O'Neil and Peak 4500 on Gibson, and climbed up Mike's Spike. Great views of the Pacific Ocean and the interior of the Olympics from the southwest.

 

Some pics:

Nice trip John! I haven't spent much time in that area, i would have loved to come along. Unfortunately my girlfriend's mother was in town and I had to play tour guide. Next time I wanna get on some other obscure spire with you guys!
