      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] Ancient Art, Castleton Tower, South Six Shooter - Part I: Aerial Video 3/24/2015

Trip: Ancient Art, Castleton Tower, South Six Shooter - Part I: Aerial Video

 

Date: 3/24/2015

 

Trip Report:

 

 

Brandon, Ken and I did a few of the towers in Moab/Indian Creek. We slept on top of the Stolen Chimney pitch just below Ancient Art's Corkscrew Summit and then climbed it a couple times at night. I rap'd down in the morning while they quickly climbed it again.

 

We planned to bivy on top of Castleton, but a late start + hauling heavy pack overhead contributed to us bailing 2/3rds of the way up Kor-Ingalls. Me being terrible at off-width climbing didn't help either.

 

South Six shooter in Indian Creek was really fun and easy (South Face). We had it all to ourselves. I slept on the summit which can just barely sleep one. It's sloped and it got really cold, so I shivered through the night, but you couldn't beat the view. A really fat mouse/rat wasn't shy about running around my bag.

 

This was my first time trying any of the Utah towers, wow are they spectacular. As we left Castleton another party was headed up with overnight gear for a summit bivy. Definitely still on my list.

Amazing footage Luke, thanks for the video and story! You are getting pretty skilled with the drone, looks pretty much like something shot with a helo and a big budget. Very cool.
