      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!

[TR] Clark and Luahna- Another Bulger is crowned - South side scrambles 9/14/2014

Trip: Clark and Luahna- Another Bulger is crowned - South side scrambles

 

Date: 9/14/2014

 

Trip Report:

Tim finished the Bulger list, on Luahna. Overall, the trip was a festive occasion with five of us along to celebrate, perhaps a little too enthusiastically. Turns out that you don't need more than a flask of whiskey per person on a one night trip.

 

However, it was also a bittersweet trip, being nearly five years since the day that Tim and I found our friend T.J., dead, on the slopes of Luahna. I think T.J. was on around #87 on the list when he died, and the accident looked to have happened very near the summit, based on where we found him in the talus below. He was probably on his way up as well, given the lack of his entry in the summit register. RIP T.J., Tim finished the list in your honor! Miss you!

Gear Notes:

Helmets.

 

Approach Notes:

Boulder pass trail to the Clark Mtn High route. Climbed Clark, then did high traverse over to Luahna. Mostly third class scrambling on Luahna except for one bit of exposed 4th. Clark is a walk up from the south.

I forgot to mention that we pushed a herd of about 50 goats from Clark all the way past Luahna. You can see many of them as white dots in the photo of Luahna above. I don't think I have ever seen so many goats in one spot, it was pretty cool.

Great photo montage and write-up Jason. I couldn't imagine a more wonderful way to finish the list...with some of the finest choss dogs a man could ask for.

 

And now, on to some more quality rock climbs...like Johannesburg!

Yeah sweet pics. That area is stunning this time of year.

 

And congrats Tim! Looks like you're enduring some sort of choss-quickening there on the summit...
