      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!

[TR] Snowfield Peak - West Ridge 6/24/2017

Recommended Posts

Trip: Snowfield Peak - West Ridge

 

Date: 6/24/2017

 

Trip Report:

Conditions are excellent right now on the Neve Glacier and West Ridge route up Snowfield. The gulley up to the notch on the summit block was melted out along with the 40' descent to the last scramble up to the top.

If you are heading up there, a six pack is waiting for you! Simply look here (48.68117, -121.12980) and bring back our approach shoes and I will thank you with a selection of your choice.

Shoot! If you had posted earlier I would have looked for your shoes. Went up there over the 7/1-7/4 and tag a few other peaks and the area is in great shape. Lot's of snow, but lot's of dry campsites available on the Moraine and one at the Col. Approach is mostly snow free until about 5000ft. The bugs are coming out and are around the moraine. If you do Colonial, don't go up the steep snow like we did, save yourself some time an look for the snow ramp at the col which should get you to easy terrain that you can reach the upper snowfield. It was Really, Really Beautiful up there right now.
