      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!

[TR] alpine lakes - central park gully attempt 3/12/2011

Recommended Posts

Trip: alpine lakes - central park gully attempt

 

Date: 3/12/2011

 

Trip Report:

Trip: nw face w satilite peak mt snoqualmi - central park gully gdII+ AI3+R A-2 JUST TRYING TO GET THE PRIZE FOR MARCH TR'S

 

Date: 2/23/2010

 

Trip Report:

in feb 1993 myself and steve wick climbed up to below the large cave on the upper 1/3 of the couloir. the 1st pitch climbs a 75+ ice/snice smear to a chockstone belay on the left or a tree belay up and right. then follow the corner[60-70degree] until the cave. above the cave is a straitforward 50 degree snow couloir. in 93 we bailed. on tuesday 2-23-10 i downclimbed and rapped to the base of the cave intent on rope soloing the crux pitch to finish it.it starts on the right side of the cave on near vertical rock[pro difficult]for 30 feet then mellows to 65 degrees with nice sticks.well i couldnt lead it so i top-ropped it and then rappled the rest of the couloir fixing some anchors on the way. the crux pitch still needs a proper lead, maybe when feeling stronger? it will be a bold lead. the climbing over-all is really good but protection is difficult to find, although the anchors are solid but you do have to search for them. I doubt it will become popular?. if anyones done it already let me know? m.preiss

 

Gear Notes:

1 60 meter rope two would be nice if rappeling but i did it w/one. 8-10 pins thin-1 inch full set nuts and tricams and a few cams.1-2 ice scews shorties?

 

Approach Notes:

same as new york gully, its the left most gully on the satilite peak with an obvious large cave. 4-5 pitches + 300 ft upper couloir

:laf: Oh, there's a little of that going on, but the point is to get more climbing TR action going on here, so thanks for posting this. Wouldn't it be sweet if you won a prize and turned your attempt into a success? Better still if you get a partner to go back and get a complete ascent.

@kakuzka1 -

 

Hi there. I *think* this is a shot of the same route in current conditions. Can you confirm?

Thanks.

 

 

I took this wide shot and closeup of the cave as we passed by on our way to the Slot Couloir last weekend (see my TR)

Closeup of cave.

Is this the same route as "Calvin Klimb"? I don't think so, but I'm posting replies to the author of the Calvin Klimb TR as well.

 

It's tricky trying to figure out what's what on the backside of Snoqualmie.

I believe calvin klimb is the 1st gully on the right from the descent col? central park is the last gully before you hit the start for new york gully
