      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!

Winter Bouldering?

Recommended Posts

Looking for some people to boulder with this winter in the Leavenworth area if there's any dry boulders to be had, when the snow's no good.

 

Caveat...I haven't bouldered much before. I want to get stronger, and hopefully lead some harder routes next summer.

Hey Murse! I'm going to be living there as of next weekend and I'll be up for something. Frankly I'm not a boulderer and think wrestling tiny pebbles is weird. I do however reluctantly own a pad and sometimes find joy getting up a pebble or two and I'm sure I'll need to do some work this winter to stay in shape without a climbing gym nearby.

 

I can probably be talked into working some easier problems and brushing snow off stuff. ;-) I don't know what the best winter spots are yet though. Look me up!

The last couple of years i have been skiing more then bouldering in the winter but I'll seek out dry granite if we get another powder free spell this year (OlympicMtnBoy had my contact info).

 

Most of the stuff with southern exposer and few trees is good in the winter my favorites being the pretty and carnival boulders as they get sun longer thanks to the mountaineers creek valley.

 

Forest lands and upper mad meadows can be good too thanks to the lack of trees and south facing problems if you are willing to posthole up to them. Twisted tree icehouse and the ridge are all right by the road which is nice.
