      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!

Trip: Pasaytan Wilderness 7/16-18/12 -

 

Date: 7/23/2012

 

Trip Report:

Took my dog Jesse on a loop from Chewuch River to Horseshoe Basin, over to Apex Pass and back down. 48 miles and 6 peaks. First day climbed Topaz Mtn (7792) and camped near Sunny Pass. The next day we hustled to the top of Horseshoe Mtn (8000) to beat the lightning.

The growing thunderstorms prevented me from climbing Arnold and Armstrong so I moved on. Soon the thunder heads disipated and the fog with drizzle settled in. We strolled up Haig Mtn (7865) and conected the ridge over Teapot Dome (7608) and up to Bauerman Ridge (8044). Great terrain and awsome views.

This cool looking prow, Dr Johnson Pt, above Scheelite Lk has a route by Pete Doorish. His climb goes to the left side of the white wall, but there was a steller looking crack system right up the middle and on the right.

The only downer for the dog was that there was no water within 3 miles of the trail head. On the way back he was stopping at every shade and within the last mile he was laying down at every shade and I was giving him water every 3 shades. The last mile took forever.
