      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] Leavenworth - R&D 4/4/2010

Recommended Posts

Trip: Leavenworth - R&D

 

Date: 4/4/2010

 

Trip Report:

I brought a friend out to Leavenworth for Easter. As we drove through Steven's Pass I was getting discouraged. The weather report said clouds but no precip, yet it was definitely snowing. As we approached the icicle, it was snowing lightly, so we drove on.

 

My buddy hasn't climbed in 10 years, and only did a very small bit back then, so this was going to be a bit of an adventure for him. We got up to the base, and I roped up and headed off. I had never been on this route, and was a bit surprised to feel the big block move when I pulled on it on P1.

 

P2 was very straightforward, and no pro was placed until the anchor. P3 was a bit exciting since there was water running down the entrance to the chimney, and a bit on the walls of the chimney. It dried up on P4 and was a fun finish. We went up the crack to the right, then finished up the crack above. The final pitch was a full 60m rope length.

 

All in all it was cold but fun, and great to see a friend enjoy getting out on some rock. The snow fell intermittently, and gave it all more of an alpine feel.

 

Gear Notes:

60m rope, standard rack

Good to see 11worth TRs, lots of fun climbs over here.

We have had an amazing spring, great weather and dry rock.

By my count we've gotten out around 40 days this year.
