      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!

[TR] NY Gully - 12/24/2011

Recommended Posts

Trip: NY Gully -

 

Date: 12/24/2011

 

Trip Report:

Scott Gullberg and I scratched our way up the route yesterday. It's the bonyest I've ever seen it, and thus a bit harder than usual; though Scott did a fine job leading the crux pitches.

 

One thing I'd mention is that you'd best tread lightly and swing lightly in these conditions to avoid destroying the turf up there. There's zero ice right now and only a handful of sticks into neve so the turf is even more of a valuable commodity. There's also quite a bit of loose rock exposed that is usually covered and more frozen into place.

couple loose blocks, but overall a blast to climb! Cheers to Mark for his patience and ubiquitous motivation!
