      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] Sawtooths, Elephants Perch - 8/19/2010

Recommended Posts

Trip: Sawtooths, Elephants Perch -

 

Date: 8/19/2010

 

Trip Report:

This place is pure shit. The rock is more rotten than Courtney Love's hoohoo, the camping might as well be in a homeless shelter, the lakes are stagnant and smell like a kiddie pool, and the approach makes the worst Cascades bush-wack seem like an all-nighter with The Girls Next Door. We did several routes on this pile and a new one on a lesser formation, but it started out poor and got worse as we went higher. Seriously folks there is absolutely no reason to visit this truly awful and atrocious place. There is nothing new left to do here and it wouldn't be any fun even if there were. Check out our vid if you need evidence, but be warned...

You've got to be joking the granite is DANK,

a boat ride takes off 4 miles of the approach, rotten rock builds character and dude the girls next door are a bunch of freaks. Nice video you should put it on the craigslist personals. The lakes you camped at should now be re-named the Brokeback lakes, instead of the Saddleback lakes.

Idaho has nothing but potatoes and republicans. there are no mountains and for gods sake no alpine climbing. Absolutely no reason to ever leave the cascades

isn't it true that if you ironed out idaho's mountains and made the whole state flat that it would be the largest state in the union?

As I've lived in Idaho all my life, and work 30 minutes North of the City of Rocks, I love to hear people say this about my state. The less people coming here the better. The same goes for the Wind's and Teton's.

great thread for your first post ever after being a member for 6 years. i am impressed.

 

Ya got a point. I guess if you can't say something nice then....

I was on the perch the last day the shuttle was running this season. It was perfect. Didn't see anyone else the whole trip. Last weekend two friends went to do Stur Chimney. TR will follow.

Well enough with all this jibber jabber. See you in 2018. LOL
