      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!

If you go there, expect to do lots and lots of repelling. Repel after repel after repel.

So I found out from an old friend that "Valhalla" has been known for some time. Maybe they didn't explore the whole thing, but he has pictures of his experience,

he writes:

"The Jonathan Korn search, 7/31/1992. We spent the night down

there in an unplanned bivouac. I got all on film."

I watched it. It was neat, but somehow I kind of figured that if you followed just about any drainage in the PNW you're going to find a lot of that kind of terrain.

 

I think it was nice for OPB to do a cool spot on it, good viewing but a little too much drama for something that looks kind of mellow if you've ever done any canyoneering.

Oly, copy that! It's happens to all of us - getting that feeling that we are first to find a neat place, and find out not. :wave:

OPB hit the jackpot on this one. Hyped it up for weeks then dropped it just before a pledge drive. Smart.

 

The show seemed more like bad reality television than journalism to me but cool to know this spot is in my back yard.

 

I wonder how long until Dan Helmstadter skis it?

So she wasn't a virgin after all.

And now she's been rap bolted and filmed for TV.

In March, David Lama and Red Bull will film a naked zip line descent.

In April, Ivan will aid to the top, build a bonfire in her mouth, get busted, and the defiling will be complete.

But somehow this thread lives on!

I watched the video and found it very compelling. Thanks for seeing it through and providing the story. I'll bet there are a few of those in north cascades. I saw an impenetrable valley near mt logan that had a whole valley side fracture and slide many meters in a v shape. Pretty sure nobodies seen that valley either.

If only the first descentionists had had the foresight to take the time and leave behind a wretched Power Dump, the climbing world would not be embroiled in this current controversy.

Did Hyperbole Canyon ever see a CC expedition led by @ivan with a flag-planting, slideshow with beers, $20 reward, etc?!?!

it's on my to-do list, though my go-to list of bastards, braggarts n' brawlers is declining at a shocking rate... :(
