Internediate Cascades Course Having a Great Time!

The group spent the first three days climbing in the Washington Pass area. They warmed up with crag climbing at Fun Rock and then moved up into the alpine to get away from the heat and climb some of the classics.

After three days at the Pass and a fun evening in the faux-Western town of Winthrop, the group packed up and drove to another classic climbing area in the North Cascades- Boston Basin. They spent yesterday afternoon on the approach to the Basin and were set up for the night at the lower Boston Basin camp last night. The location sets them up for climbing any number of the amazing peaks in the area. Everyone is doing great and having a really fun time on the course so far.
