      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!

Careno Crag Accident

Recommended Posts

a gal fell on the third pitch of the regular route, ripped a cam, ledged out, and broke both legs.


Chelan County Mountain Rescue Association volunteers staging at the Leavenworth Fish Hatchery for a rescue on Serpentine Arete on Dragontail were redirected to the Careno Crag mission. Thanks to the fortuitous positioning of rescue climbers and medics, the rescue was accomplished in less than two hours. The Lady was airlifted to Seattle (Harborview, I presume, but I haven't confirmed that). A mission report and photos can be found on the CCMRA Facebook page.

Correction She broke one leg two ribs and went to Wenatchee. She will be on the mend for some time, but will be OK.
