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.
