      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!

Skinner's Butte Update

Recommended Posts

As some of you may know, stabilization work is currently being done @ the Columns. For this phase there is only a partial closure. When this work is completed we will be moving on to the next phase which will include a closure of the entire Columns+parking lot. The dates scheduled for this phase are September 22 through September 30, and of course all construction schedules are subject to change.

 

The overall idea is to stabilize the shifting climbing columns as much as possible, as well as clear off some of the loose stuff to the right of Limpdick. This area will be rescreened and the goal is to reopen the entire columns for climbing, much like it was before the big slide a couple winters ago.

 

Any questions can be sent to Roger Bailey at The River House 541-682-6323 or posted here and I will make sure they get where they need to go.

You should see it now. There is a standing platform at the base of Fat Crack (Outer Column Jam). It looks kind of weird, but I guess the concrete is supposed to support the columns that shifted.
