      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!

Trip: Index - Solitude


Date: 7/24/2011


Trip Report:

After cleaning cracks in 2009 I returned this year and did some more work and decided it was time to climb it




Gear Notes:

gear to 4" (4" on P1 and near the end of P5)

I used camalots

single 2,3,4

double from 00 to 1

double set of nuts were usful 1/8 to 3/4

the doubles are mainly for P5 its about 130'

P2 and P3 take single rack to #3 with nuts being useful

rappel the route with two ropes

chain belays

at the top look for chain around tree, chain belay at the lip of the wall is troublesome to lower from.


Approach Notes:

The approach is the same for private idaho take a left where the trail forks for private idaho and follow the creek bed and take the next right where the trail has washed out soon you will see a big roof above scramble up and right and you will see P1 obvious crack with chain belay.

Thanks, I added some close up pictures of some of the crux sections. It's a fun climb, P5 especialy. I'm currently working on two more five picth climbs in the same area but I don't get to go out as much as I would like so progress is slow. Some work I do is at night with short days now.
