      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!

Sherpa Glacier --> Cascadian couloir, conditions?

Recommended Posts

Curious about conditions on the sherpa glacier, and what the approach to it via mountaineer creek might look like? Anyone been in the zone?

 

Also wondering what the passage looks like to go over the top of sherpa, and down the cascadian..

 

Thanks much!

Thanks, Pete. It sounds like it's a good time ski this through-route, in spite of the lack of frozen nights..

A friend and I climbed Full N. Ridge yesterday approaching from the North and descending the Sherpa. The glacier is in excellent condition still. A super easy end run around the bergschrund-skier's right- is still possible. No rappel shenanigans needed! Gorgeous day in perfect weather with no one around!
