      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!

Bulo Point

Recommended Posts

FYI - The USFS, Access Fund, and local climbers have completed a small gravel parking lot and turnaround for Bulo Point. Several years ago, local climbers participated in the road decomissioning process to ensure that a portion of the road that services Bulo Point remain open. Many letters of support came from the community to encourage the USFS to keep the road open to the trail for Bulo Point. The climbing community pledged to help construct a parking area, and a grant was secured from the Access Fund to help pay for the construction. It took some time to assemble the right resources for an economically sound plan for the improvements. The USFS contributed staff time, gravel, and other resources towards the project. Site preparation work ocurred throughout the summer, and the heavy equipment could finally complete the project after the fire season. Many thanks to the local volunteers, the USFS, and the Access Fund for improving the access to this little gem.

We would have liked to reduce the bumps. The USFS indicated that they were waterbars and necessary. A little wider and smoother road remains on my wish and lobby list.

I was able to enjoy the new parking area last week. Thanks and nice work.

 

Those are some waterbars.... more like table-tops. Makes me laugh that the USFS deems them necessary over on the dry side of the hill.

Hooray. Glad to hear this. Way back in the late 70s we thought we might have "discovered" this area when in high school. Glad to hear it's still going to be relatively accessible without a long walk.
