      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!

Granite walls of Matterhorn/Sacajawea peaks

Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever been climbing on any granite(i think its granite) walls in the Wallowa mountains? South side of the Matterhorn/Sacajawea?

Yes, though the peaks you mention are super choss limestonish, the grante is far and not really that great. If you are in NW Oregon, go to Darrington, WA, its closer, if you are in Idaho, go to the Sawtooths, it better. If you live within about 2hrs hours of Enterprise and are looking for an adventure, send me a pm and I can send you in the right direction.

Good luck on the 'horn.

 

However, I do recall passing beneath what seemed like some intriguing cliffs at the south end of that ridge in the area above Douglas lake, but then again I was probably more focused on my ankles 3rd roll (w/ 8 more coming) after it's first sprain (or more specifically the remedy to such pain offered a few miles out at TG).

 

Anyone know if that rock's any good? Or what those cliffs are called? I know you'd have quite the approach to face, but you could make it a worthwhile trip I imagine.
