      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] Mt Stuart - Complete N Ridge 8/26/2017

Recommended Posts

Trip: Mt Stuart - Complete N Ridge

 

Date: 8/26/2017

 

Trip Report:

I won't bore you with a full trip report, but just in case anyone is planning to climb it soon and is wondering about how much water to take: as of last Sunday (August 27), the only place to get water on the route was a small snowpatch right below the "slab with crack", just a little before reaching the Great Gendarme. It was small, and it is probably going to melt completely very soon. After that I didn't pay as much attention to other options, but the only other snow somewhat close to the route that I noticed was just below the summit (didn't really look if it would be feasible to get there). Once on the south side, there is no water until you are almost down to Ingalls Creek. So, plan accordingly and have fun!

 

What a great climb! :)

There's still a huge patch of snow on the false summit, so you can get water there if you bring a stove. Personally, I wouldn't bring a stove, unless you are bivying on route (and I wouldn't do that, so never a stove I say). Drink one and grab a couple liters to go at the bottom and then bang it out. And while you're doing the death march back to your car, contemplate that Colin Haley and partner did this route c-to-c in under 7 hours:
