      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] Newberry Crater - Paulina Falls - Main Falls 1/1/2013

Recommended Posts

Trip: Newberry Crater - Paulina Falls - Main Falls

 

Date: 1/1/2013

 

Trip Report:

Here's another look at Paulina & current conditions. This was my first time ice climbing in central Oregon. Woot! My partner & I had a great time doing laps on the left side of the main falls. We climbed this formation in 3 different lines. The ice is plenty thick on the left & gets very thin toward the center. We also discovered a cool cave behind the falls. I wish I would have taken a picture from further back; so you could see the whole thing... I hope you enjoy what I did manage to capture. Cheers!

Climbers left side falls: looking a bit thin on the sides! We didn't climb there.

Climbers right side falls (main falls). There's more to the right out of the picture.

Cave behind main falls.

 

Gear Notes:

We TR'd using trees above the falls. Bring long webbing/cord if you plan to do this (40-50 ft for each tree you want to use).

 

Approach Notes:

Park at 10 mile & cruise the snowmobile trail for about 2 miles to the overlook.
