      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!

index LTW when it is 40deg out?

Recommended Posts

So is it worth going out to the LTW unless it is above 50deg? Is a 40deg too damn cold to be sticking fingers and hands into cracks there?

 

Anyone been out there recently? Was thinking of going out there later this week. Index in dec sounds sweet. Maybe not.....

Put a handwarmer in your chalk bag. Wear a puffy. Off you go! No pain, no pain...

Was there Friday and Saturday Gene - never got above 40 deg, but was fine, especially when the sun came out. Fingers got a little cold, but that builds character, right?

 

Wear long underwear, a warm cap, puffy and belay gloves. Bring a thermos and put a hand warmer in your chalk bag.

BTW - the wall was quite wet on Friday, a little better Saturday. We led through the dampness on (lower) Godzilla both yesterday and today. Tatoosh was completely dry Friday. If the weather forecast stays true things should continue to dry out. Jap Gardens was dry enough to lead Saturday. Thin Fingers was still damp on the first pitch but could be skirted around via Tatoosh or french-freed easily.

 

I don't have to work next Friday until 4pm and would love to get some laps in Gene if you're available.
