We'll be climbing Mother's Day Buttress on
Cascade. There is a 30 min 3rd class scrambling
approach, 8 pitches of 5.6 trad climbing
(bolted anchors), and a descent that is mostly
a trail but includes some short sections of 3rd
class down-climbing and a rappel. Participants
must be competent at belaying a leader, and
comfortable moving over moderate scrambling
terrain. While not required to lead,
participants should be able to comfortably
climb up to 5.7 outdoors and be on the move for
4-7 hours. If you are interested to lead some
pitches, I'm happy to share the lead, but also
happy to lead the whole thing. A mix of
relative beginners and
more experienced participants are welcome to
join. If I haven't climbed
with you recently, please send a description of
your experience level & abilities including
relevant climbs you have been on in the past
and whether you are interested in leading or
Required Items to Bring:
Climbing gear (can discuss in detail with
selected participants), and a backpack you are
comfortable climbing with. We won't be
returning to the start of the climb, so
everything you bring is coming up & over with
us - choose wisely!
