      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!

Nice work on a somewhat obscure gem. 4600 vf for two pitches is brutal even by Washington standards. I'm waiting until they build a tram before I go back up there.

It's certainly a haul, but I think camping on Edwards Mesa softens the blow a little.

 

Also, good work on the climb. That area is so cool.

Nice, this is a great time of year to do that one. Did you take the right hand variation on the first pitch, I started up that and then opted for the less mossy standard way left. I couldn't tell from your pic.
