      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] Sick Times at Hyalite - 12/19/2010

Trip: Sick Times at Hyalite -


Date: 12/19/2010


Trip Report:

Climber/Photographer Ben Herndon and I went to Hyalite for a week of climbing, partying and photography. Our first few days there we participated in the Bozeman Ice Fest 2010. I had never been to a festival before and I can tell you this one is wayyy fun. Great shows on Guy Lacell, from Will Gadd and many others, kept the stoke up in high gear. Each evening we were driven crazy by the presentations and the hot ice climbing chicks there. Sorry no photos of the chicks. Anywhoo, every thing else here is fat and blue. Some of the low hanging fruit climbs are a little picked out, but the walker will be rewarded.

Day 1: Craig and Marko tried Rocket Boy after we did the new ascent of its first pitch.






Day 2 We go on a solo binge of Hangover, Genesis 2 , and top it off with Golden Mean , all in the 2 hrs before dark.



This last shot is Me messing around in the cave by Golden Mean. Neat stuff.


Day 3: I hook up with Jessica (ICMNTS.) And Geoff to do laps on the 2 Twin Falls, Sweet routes in the 3-4 range.


Day 4 : I catch a bad cold and rest in the Window Rock Cabin.





Day 5 : I get on a couple of sickies, Good Lookin One and Black Magic.




Day 6. More sickness in my chest and head , I need ICE!

Cleopatras and the amazing Airborne Ranger!






Huge thanks to Marko, Ben, Craig, Bozeman Ice Fest, and Pro Mountain Sports for the best ice gear available BUY LOCAL!!

Nice ticks. It's always fun climbing with Craig. I need to get there soon. Craig and I had a go at Cleo's last year and I'd love to go back and finish it. Who led Airborne Ranger? Mad props to whoever it was!
