Re: Climbing in Washington State USA

There are heaps of options. Seattle has a huge group of outdoor enthusiasts and an online forum. Do your own search! Climbed Mt Baker (almost) with American Alpine Institute based in Bellingham when I was first learning. We also spent a day rock climbing at some place like "desperation Gorge Park" though I cant comment on its quality as I had no idea about anything much then. But I did look at a few options later on, before opting to go to the Bugaboos instead. It was easy to find info, and that was in 2004.

Re: Climbing in Washington State USA

Thanks Vanessa!

I've done a heep of research and it looks like the more narly stuff is in the north Cascades and the better intro stuff is in the south.

Im taking a trad rack for alpine rock, crampons, summer / light mountaineering boots, axe, twin ropes, rock shoes, etc..
is their anything specific gear wise you found handy or anything u wish you had but didnt when you were their??

this stuff is a long way outside of my sport climbing comfort zone and anything alpine / mountaineering is a learning curve for me!
