      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!

Alpine or Trad 6/18-6/20

Recommended Posts

Greetings. I have Thursday through Saturday free next week and I would like to go climb a mountain, or several. Washington Pass is the first place that comes to mind as I would like to climb several routs on the Liberty Bell massif as well as wanting to climb Cutthroat and Silver Star. Or I would be interested in the North Face of Shuksan, or any number of other alpine objectives. I am open to suggestions but probably not excited about a pure glacier slog.

 

I have been alpine climbing for about 8 years although for the last couple of them other responsibilities have kept these pursuits on the back burner. I spent a couple of years dirt-bagging and a couple of seasons guiding. I am generally comfortable and fast on not-really-technical terrain and happy to solo 4th class and climb 55-degree snow with one alpine axe. I don't mind bushwhacking and I have been to several of the most remote spots in Washington. I haven't been climbing much trad yet this summer so probably need to stick to 5.7 or less in the mountains. I am primarily interested in longish aesthetic routs to summits more than hard technical climbs.

 

I live in Bellingham and I have pretty much all the relevant toys, along with a reliable old Honda accord. Would love to find a few regular partners to get out with this summer. I have a list of projects that I am not all that serious about and I would probably be up for your ideas. Drop me a line.
