      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!

Road Trip advice

Recommended Posts

So the wife and I are packing up and heading east from August 3rd till the 22nd. We are planning on heading to Lander and then stopping by the Tetons on the way back. Is there anywhere else we should go. City of Rocks seems to be on the way. Is August a good time to go, is there anywhere else we should visit? We are good with either trad or sport. Looking for ideas.

Definitely City. Massacre Rocks if it isn't too hot (haven't climbed there since the City is close to it, and I love the City).

don't pass up an opportunity to climb at the city. it can be pretty hot in August, but it's easy to chase shade. get up early and climb on west-facing walls in the morning, siesta in almo, climb east-facing walls in the evening.

stop in Stanley and get some Sawtooth action - a hidden gem that I've heard some well-known (as in Icon well-known) alpinists call the best alpine rock-climbing they've seen anywhere.

2nd the Wind River Range. If you are up for alpine climbing, definitely check out The Wolfs Head and Pingora, two 50 classics in an amazing location
