      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!

First Ascent Information/Photography

Recommended Posts

I'm curious if any of you old timers have photographs/stories of first ascents in the Cascades. (Maybe there's a preexisting thread?) I've seen similar threads elsewhere but not so much here. I really enjoyed reading Matt Christensen's recent trip report on the first ascent of the Boving Route on Dragontail.

Type in "First Ascent" in the TR search page under route and a few pop up....all will be recent FAs. I doubt there are many historic (however that is defined) FAs described on the board - the Dragontail Boving route thread is one of the few I can recall.

I was thinking of older, classic climbs that aren't already documented by a TR or webpage. Or just older photos of people climbing at places like Index.

Check out Alpenglow for plenty of history of the Cascades. A bit more ski focused, but Lowell know about as much as anyone when it comes to Northwest mountaineering history.
