      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!

FYI on Index - The Cheeks Area

Recommended Posts

My buddy Dave and myself wandered up to do some climbing in the cheeks area yesterday. As we were getting ready to cross the "perverse traverse" a falcon made it very apparent that he did not like our presence in the area. We watched him for a few more minutes and he was clearly pissed that we were there. Assuming that the falcon was nesting somewhere on that part of the cliff we departed to come back another day. So if anybody wants to go up there its probably best to wait until the standard time for falcon closures gets lifted (end of july) or risk being an ass and some talons in your back.

way to be responsible stewards guys! you are correct...that is one of the places the falcons nest every year. the lack of traffic over there gives them a hassle free place to do their thing. the biologists who set up their spotting scopes down in town, can get good observations due to the nests location.
