      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!

[TR] Mount Sir Donald - North West Ridge 8/8/2012

Recommended Posts

Trip: Mount Sir Donald - North West Ridge

 

Date: 8/8/2012

 

Trip Report:

Mount Sir Donald – Northwest Ridge – III 5.4 – 10 774′

 

Anyone who has ever driven up to Roger’s pass on a good day has seen this mountain and has probably said to themselves, “WHAT IS THAT PIECE OF GLORY !?!?!!”

 

And if you haven’t, and you want to see the Matterhorn of Canada, you ought to do yourself a favor by a) driving up there b) and be able to climb heaps of 5.4 proficiently so that you don’t leave not having become intimate with the beauty. This 50 Crowded Classic is worth all the trouble in the world to scramble up. The position is tremendous & the stone, precious. In fact, this route is more infinitely bliss than Mt Garfield could ever provide.

 

We simuled the whole thing in 3 hours.. the rappels were tedious.

 

It would be a great one to solo, though I think it would be quite scary. I don’t think I would ever do it anyways.

 

Pictures!

Nice photos Caleb. I got rained off this a few years back and hope to get back up there before I get too old and fat. I thought Mt. Assiniboine was the Matterhorn of Canada?mount_assiniboine_111.jpg

I've never seen the route in person, why would it be scary to solo? Is the route straight forward?

It actually would be an amazing route to Solo.

Good Holds, Good Rock, Straight Forward In fact.

 

Just that I'm not a soloer :)
