      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!

Epilogue:

A talented up-and-coming climber once commented on a gumby "some people were meant to be astronomers; others astronauts". With this latest in a string of too-many failures, it may be time to sell the rack and buy some coffee table books with pictures of mountains.

 

Nice Effort KKK, Keep in mind that Reggie Jackson had the most strikeouts of all time.

It's been a long time since we climbed together, waterboy. We miss you up here in the PNW :(

Thanks for the chuckle. And the reminder that clusterf**ks are not just some of my trips.

FYI, I did this route last thurs-fri. Great climbing. We started the route as per the red line here on KK's picture. After ascending the slabs we took a left-angling dihedral for an outstanding long 5.7 pitch to the ridge crest. If the slabs aren't dead easy, you're in the wrong place.

The glacier travel was good fun. We had to cross several narrow snow bridges and do some face in climbing on steep slopes above gapers, but overall things seemed quite solid. I worried about falling. I never worried about a bridge collapsing.

Thanks for the update Longshanks. My partner Dwayne actually mentioned that that dihedral looked like it could be a good go.
