      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!

Wow, now there is a peak that doesn't see many ascents! How was the thrash from the valley bottom?

Nothing like steep weeds right out the car to make us question our sanity. A very direct approach.

Ah, I admire your ability to tantalize and preserve the mystery. It does look "direct" on the map. I guess I will have to figure out for myself someday.

 

A friend of the family climbed the West peak with his boy scout troop, in '49 if I remember correctly. Or was it '39? Anyway, a long time ago, and he still remembers it well, though not with much fondness. Something about sucking on prune pits.
