      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!

Exit 32 Climbing and Parks Agreement

Recommended Posts

Anyone have a picture of the sign posted by WW1 warning "hikers" of the "dangers" of climbing? Anyone have info on what the "arrangement" is with the Parks Dept re: climbing access?

 

I'm in a new locale now (TX) that's pretty clueless about climbing on parks property. Trying to get access setup down here for a local wall and any info one has to aid my cause would be greatly appreciated!

The biggest risk to hikers is gaping around at the top and falling off rather than climbing the wall. No signs up there that I have seen. Hikers heading up the ledge at the base to gawk can be an issue but climbers and their dogs and not hikers appear to be the most at risk but also the least likely to complain and sue.

 

My favorite part is the handicapped parking spots at a site with little if any reasonable potential for disabled folks to head up the trail or do anything else in the vicinity.

I'll still be lurking here! I need to check in now and then to be reminded of what good granite is like!

 

That's what I thought - The PNW doesn't hand hold as much as they do down here.
