      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!

leavenworth FA documentation

Recommended Posts

where would you find info on first ascents in the leavenworth area other than the current guidebook (Kramar 2010)?

climbed something near Bear Cave Crag this weekend- wondering if it's documented?

it's a hand-crack traverse on solid rock- right off the trail. many folks must walk by and see it. bit dirty- doesn't see much/ hasn't seen any traffic.

thats what i figure too. it's a cool climb though. worthwhile if you're in the area and climb 5.9s.

Theres no such thing as a FA in Leavenworth that's within 1,500' of the road.

Would that be vertical, or linear, or both?

Hi Nate,

That would be "Shazzam" 5.9, gear to 3.5

FA: Brad Metz, Danielle Szabo

You should have seen it before the scrubdown, FILTHY! Still could use a little love,but being so short, I never really made it a priority. I'm surprised you didn't notice the two Madrock hangers set back from the top of the crack. Nice send dude!
