      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] Mount garfield - Infinite bliss 7/19/2015

Recommended Posts

Trip: Mount garfield - Infinite bliss

 

Date: 7/19/2015

 

Trip Report:

Today I soloed infinite bliss. I got there at 8 and was back to the car by 3. The crux was carrying 5 bottles of water, you can also bring a lifestraw and sip from the stream. At the bottom slabs to the right of the water stream there are 3 near vertical bolt-less pitches that you should freesolo, you can also walk up them in the forest to the right. I left 3 black diamond positrons and one 60cm Mammut sling at the stations on the bottom three pitches, the tat should be replaced soon. For the rest of the route just follow the bolts, the p.22 traverse is easy and the tat is in the bush at the end.

Bottom line: Have fun, Bring more water than you expect to drink, BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL FOR ROCKFALL.

 

Gear Notes:

Bring three times as much if your are simuling or climbing with a partner.

 

6 draws

 

2 extenders

 

4 lockers

 

Approach Notes:

The road is only open on weekends so plan accordingly. The road is very rough but can be done in something equivalent to a Nissan Leaf, be careful not to get a flat.

 

1.) Park here: 47°32'55.80"N 121°31'29.22"W

 

2.) From the parking lot walk down the road (east) 5 minutes.

 

3.) You should see a trail on the left continue on it until you see a narrow ramp feature made of smooth rock. 10 minutes.

 

4.) Continue up the ramp feature until you see a rockfall path. 10 minutes

 

5.) Continue on the rockfall path until you see the route. 15 minutes

Impressive! S**t, I never would have thought to do something like that when I was 12. Correct me if I'm wrong but you sir look like you're 12 years old... :rocken:
