      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] Ruth, Tokositna, Kahiltna - various 5/6/2013

Recommended Posts

Trip: Ruth, Tokositna, Kahiltna - various

 

Date: 5/6/2013

 

Trip Report:

My buddy Will and I spent about a month in the Central Alaska Range where we attempted Dickey, climbed Johnson and Huntington and then attempted Hunter twice. I'm sorry I don't feel up to writing a TR but here's video I hope will get you all psyched to get out and get after it!

 

 

Definitely a place I would like to visit again. So much good climbing. No post holing through slide alder on the approaches!! Little delaminated ice! Beautiful granite mixed!!! Forget your headlamp? - worry not! the sun hardly ever sets! Am I in heaven??? Oh yes - the quality of the climbing there is high!.. the kind of alpine climbing i've been looking for for years... sigh.

 

Any questions about any of the routes, feel free to shoot me a message.

WOW! that was a very productive trip. Did you guys summit on Dickey, Johnson, huntington and hunter? That is pretty bad ass for one month.

Looks like attempt on unclimbed line on Dickey, Escalator on Johnson to the summit, Harvard on Huntington to the summit and attempt on Moonflower on Hunter...?
