      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] Observation Rock - North Face 9/25/2010

Trip: Observation Rock - North Face


Date: 9/25/2010


Trip Report:

Hoping to get a little ice in (it is late September...) we headed up to Observation Rock yesterday. We had beautiful weather and great fun, but no ice.


Currently the route has good firm snow that takes pickets well. We brought 4 pickets which enabled us to simulclimb a little more than half the face, and then pitch out two belayed pitches. The second belay was probably 150 feet in length.


Now for pics...

Traversing to the base of the route (7500 foot contour):

Gear Notes:

Crampons, axe+tool.
