      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!

i drove out highway 30 as far as multnomah falls today. nothing was in yet. a few more days of freezing temps might do the trick but not sure this cold spell is going to last long enough.

If your jonesing the Upper Tier Cape Horn stuff seems to come in quickest and stick around the longest.

Drove the Gorge mid afternoon Wednesday on my way back from E-burg with my head hanging out the window. Another tease. Almost all climbs visible from the road are THIN or have flowing water in the center.

 

Ainsworth middle third pitch is blank, no ice. The upper and lower sections have a narrow thin streak of ice.

 

The climb with most ice from top to bottom is Wayne's test piece Black Dagger (did I get the route name right?)

 

The Washington side flows were not in either.

 

Kudos to Dustin for scratching up Mist in the dark. Double kudos to Amy for waiting in the car.

After the fact, update from Wed...

 

Lower Cape Horn Routes were starting to form, but I'm sure they're long gone by now. Managed to get a few good sticks in here and there but never too far from the ground. Hope the next cold snap lasts a little longer...
