      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!

Drury Falls

Recommended Posts

Drury Falls is in. The lower falls are fat and plastic. We soloed the first pitch, and led the second (WI 3), which took us to the basin beneath the upper falls. We drooled at the ice before us, pondering the hard climbing. Due to the time of day, we opted to bail out, rather than rappel, and descend in the dark. The upper falls looks to have some technical WI 5 climbing on the top two pitches. This climb would be best done from a high bivy near the falls. The approach is deceptively long, with almost 3000' gain, and postholing snow condtions. Not to mention the avalanche danger in the approach drainage. Do Not attempt this climb in questionable snow conditions. Crossing the Wenatchee river in a $20 inflatable raft was quite amusing. Bring a good paddle!......Eric
