      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!

A Month of Adventure (7/24-8/24)

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a partner who is willing to commit to at least several days of living the dream. I will be back in the states on a month's holiday from work in Taiwan starting on July 24th. I have a significant tick list that includes moderate alpine and multi-pitch trad routes in Leavenworth, the North Cascades, and Squamish. I am a solid 5.10 trad climber. I will also have a Toyota pickup that gets 18-20mpg and can seat two comfortably plus a lifetime of dirtbag gear and your dog. I will be coming from Portland, OR.

 

Tick list excerpt:

* Mt Garfield - Infinite Bliss

* Icicle Creek - Outer Space

* Prusik Peak - West Ridge

* Index - Aires

* Forbidden Peak - West Ridge

* Squamish - Angel's Crest

 

Holla back, yo.

Sounds like you've picked out some good routes. I'd be down to tackle a few of those with you. I live in Tacoma and am virtually free until Aug 18th. Name is Ken Dyer

This doesn't happen to be the Nate Ball that I knew in undergrad at an east coast technical university, is it? I'll PM as well.

Nate, Ken. Ditto on my part.

 

I've climbed all on Nate's list w/ the exception of Aires in Index and would not mind repeating most of those on your list. I am also in Tacoma. I should be back to leading 5.10- after a few days on the rock. Lead 5.11- friction in Squamish last year.

Squamish has had an explosion of route development since the Olympics. Weeks and weeks of new stuff including many grade III's and IV's.

See you in the mountains!

Are you friends with Gabe Bruneau? I just spent a month climbing with him in Washington with AAI and he mentioned he had a friend who climbed a lot of trad, named Nate, and was living in Taiwan... coincidence? Anyways, I'm in Portland as well and would be super psyched to get out and hit some of those.

I've PM'd all of you. Please send me your available dates and where you would most like to climb. I would really like it if we could meet up for four days or more. Squamish and Icicle Creek will be the main destinations, with side-trips before or after. Thanks for the stoke, and looking forward to hearing from y'all.
