Why freak out about finding non-ideal rap stations and sliding off the ends of your rope? If you just climbed it using screws for belays, why not make a couple A-threads and use those? You could make them on the way up and thread webbing, so you're set for the return.

We did it in 1988 so threads weren’t a thing yet.

No one was freaked out. And descending on v-threads in the afternoon when the sun hits the upper pitches is not without its own form of peril. On the day the pictures I posted were taken, a large section of the lower falls, on which we'd climbed that morning, collapsed as we were packing up camp. Caveat emptor.

If not now, when?

Not really responding to anything. Just making an observation that “cascadeclimber” has a double meaning here on this thread. cool.gif

Don’t you mean Cascadeclimbers? They seem on their last gasps, with a uninvolved owner

If you were talking to me… “cascadeclimber” (the NWHikers member) = someone who climbs in the Cascades, as well as someone who climbs cascades. Nothing worse than having to explain a joke: an indication that it probably wasn't a good one.
