      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!

Tribes and PUD wrangle over work at Peshastin

Recommended Posts

"Peshastin Pinnacles rock formations...well loved by just about everyone else."

 

Now I wouldn't go that far...

This too may be a bit of an exaggeration:

 

"They have...significance to rock climbers, who flock there to scale the spires."

"The tribes already have expressed concern that the many rock climbers who visit the state park could speed the site’s degradation."

 

I don't think the tribes should be too concerned by the 5 to 10's of climbers who visit the Pinnacles each year.

Power company has to do what they have to do. The pinnacles will continue to fall down as they have done forever. I was shocked when trigger finger fell over in the 80's...but after seeing 2 more big collapses I'm not surprised anymore.

 

They may knock some stuff down...but so be it. There are more tourists there than climbers now. They love to hike around, it's very pretty. On a typical spring weekend there may be 10 climbers a day, more or less. I still love it there. Vertigo is not a route to miss. Sunset slab is great slab training. It's heady, but not especially dangerous. Bottom line there is not to start up something without some beta from a local...if you can find one. Never assume there are enough bolts just because it is in the guidebook.
