      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!

Takargo FA, Nepal

Recommended Posts

Had some fun in Nepal this winter. David Gottlieb and I made the first peak ascent of Takargo (6,771 meters) in the Rolwaling Himal. In addition to the peak we got to do a bunch of ice-climbing and live in a small Sherpa village. We pretty much had a fantastic 2-month trip.

 

If you'd like to see more pics and read about the adventure, check out our blog: www.climbnepal.blogspot.com

 

Here's a couple shots from the trip:

Awesome! :brew: Looks like a great set of climbs for sure!

 

Skirting the huge serac field must have been fairly exciting at times. Was it mostly stable when you came around it?
