      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] Dragontail - Triple Couloirs 5/9/2015

Recommended Posts

Trip: Dragontail - Triple Couloirs

 

Date: 5/9/2015

 

Trip Report:

Jason and I climbed it yesterday with a soloist and one other party of two on route. We left camp on a big flat rock by the lake around 5:45am and topped out on the ridge at about 1:30pm. Since there's plenty of beta already I thought I'd post pics for those curious about conditions. It was still in great shape yesterday. To the soloist who passed us on the first pitch of the runnels, I took a few shots of you coming up. If you are interested in them PM me and I will send you what i have.

 

looking back down on the first runnels pitch where we were passed by the soloist.

Jason had an awkward intermediate belay here due to us starting the first runnels pitch below the usual spot....so I put an anchor in and belayed him to finish the runnels off.

Good trip John.

 

FYI to future TC suiters this year, I thought the ice step between the 2nd and 3rd was the thinnest.
