      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!

Thanks for the topo. Looking forward to getting out there again. We climbed dry rock in the rain on our last visit. Nice routes and nice gniess. :)

Newhalem has plenty of bolts - it is definitely a sport crag. This is particularly true on the legacy routes that primarily take up real estate on the first 50 ft or so of the crag. The newer pitches and route extensions are generally bolted a little more sparingly, but still sport climbing.

 

The recent development by Patrick, James, Benjit, Ryan, and others has really bumped the route quality up a level at the crag IMO. Plus they along with Jonah and the access fund have done a good job of coordinating with the Park Service to make sure we continue to have access and develop the area responsibly.

 

If you don't like sport climbing, you won't like it there. If you like climbing steep granitic clip ups go get some. Cinnamon Groove is one of the best 5.12s around...

I'd assume Ryan's Wall is in honor of Ryan Triplett who died in an unknown and unwitnessed accident while soloing at Goat Wall in Mazama in 2008. Thread here: link

 

Patrick, thanks for posting the topo here in spite of the "sport climbing is neither" crowd. Stout looking crag.
