      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!

Detailed Topo of base of snow creek?

Recommended Posts

So I got off route on the first pitch of outer space. I didnt really have any idea where i started but I pretty much climbed a full 200+ straight up to the 3rd pitch anchors? The climbing was good for a while and then it got blank and dirty. I was all ready to bail and leave behind a #2 cam in pod but I figuered I would give it one more go and I clipped a locker to the thumb loop and set off for some unprotected slab climbing. I am curious if anyone has a topo that shows all the routes that are there at the base of outerspace?

 

Some dudes who just finished were packing up at the base and must have thought I was crazy as we started after 3pm! alpine start:) just for you John. They watched me get off route and then get scared, thanks for sticking around to see that I got through the pitch safely, MUCH APPRECIATED!

Are you thinking the RPM, 5.10b start? That pretty much goes straight up to 2-tree ledge, through a small roof. Probably the best start to O/S.

You get lost on the most well-traveled trade route in the state, you should expect to take some shit.

 

So you're looking for a secret route that isn't in the guidebook? Maybe you did a first ascent, check with summitchaserCJB.

yeah thats what I thought at first, maybe they share the same start, but I think its about twenty feet right. I really wish there was a photo that shows RPM, and then the regular starts to O/S. I was pretty ripped at the time and I just was climbing, straight up! None of this meandering BS looking for gear, lol. But yeah I guess I deserve some shit for getting off track on the first pitch.

what problem? (except deciding on what's for dinner tonight ;)

 

I was merely noting your propensity to refer to famous climbing figures.

Every once in awhile you let slip the fact that you really are a climber. :tup: You should do that more often.

That 2nd Pitch of RPM is 10b and totally fun, a right facing corner with great jams and liebacks. Pulling that lip at top is mind expanding. Or, you can avoid the roof pull by breaking out left, and more left, left some more, to gain the chimney feature.
