      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!

Smith Rock Rescue Saturday

Recommended Posts

how do you walk off superslab w/o having to pull a silly hard (though short) move up that steeepe step above the rap anchor?

 

I don't know anyone that walks off Superslab. It's not considered a walk off.

 

 

Not true. I have walked off it many times. You climb left down into the gully behind it. then up and off. Maybe a 5.3 move at best. Super easy.

interesting and most improbable at first glance - have to look for that next time i'm up there - always thought superslab would be a great easy solo, but too much of a pain in the ass to bring a rope for the rap

 

walking off monkey face is a wee bit tough :P

It's a way more enjoyable way to reach the west side than slogging up Misery Ridge. Out of the I-don't-know-how-many-times I've climbed Super Slab...I think I've done that double-rope rap maybe three times. Pain in the ass to haul up an extra rope just for that rap anyway...

 

Just drop into the gully on the left after the top-out and climb up the groove. Hike to the trail.

the climb off isn't bad as long as it isn't wet or u can use the rap station that is just up hill from the superslab top out bout 100' or so and rap with single rope into the gully, i did this w/lost cam as night was a falling on us and the dwnclb into gully was super snotty slick

If that's the case they need an oldschool Oregon beatdown. I'm sure the Bacon guys would do it for free.
they'd be chased away from beacon by the yocals the second they returned to the parking lot if they even thought about calling for a rescue out there!
i thought u only chased tail

I watched these guys for a while also. My bet is that they rapped without a prussik and missed the next rap station in the dark.

 

 

my guess is that they forgot their brains :)

How can one forget something they do not possess?

 

Even without a prussik one can often get back up the rope safely in many cases (overhang excepted).

Perchance these are the same fellas? They tried to rap the old chute but only after it was too late realized they're rope only reached a quarter of the way down! This left them stranded precariously on an ice face, with nothing left to do except brown stain their brand new mountaineering skivvies! 5227520373_e471fa2aaf_z.jpg
