      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] White Chuck Mountain - NW Slope 8/30/2009

Recommended Posts

Trip: White Chuck Mountain - NW Slope

 

Date: 8/30/2009

 

Trip Report:

White Chuck - Quick and easy way to get to 7k and steal a view.

 

Planned on taking the girl and a buddy up Baker for an intro glacier climb...with a last minute boot issue settled for a day trip up White Chuck...belayed her over a sketch section of sand/gravel covered slabs with a nasty runout...she done good and wouldn't need to do it again...highly recommend the Chuck as a first pseudo-alpine outing

 

nice trip...sweet weather...super chill day with a view...that and I wanted to scout the winter routes...some fun to be had here in a few months...

Nice outing. Maybe if you zoom in you can see us on Sloan in the 2nd to last shot. A perfect day to be in the mountains.

Bees like in ground wasps that attack you from some nondescript hole on the approach trail type bees?

If so perhaps you can clue us on the landmarks of approx spot or whether you/someone marked the spot. I was thinking of doing this trip later in the year ... and I Hate Bees.

Love that scramble. It's one of the few places in the mtns where we get some lasting benefit from the greedy lumber barons of our great state logging shit to 5K.

yeah...those kind...

 

gad wish i could landmark it...it all looks the same and was an unexpected "surprise"...its around the half way point of the thick tree section of the approach trail...we just jogged it on the way out and weren't bothered...the trails flat enough...and yeah...i hate bees...

how far could you drive up the road and how far was it from the parking lot to the base of the mtn? What kind of day (total time wise) was it? I was up on it in the winter but never in teh summer.

I did that a couple of weekends ago, it was super fun and easy :) The bees are in the woods about 1/4 mile after you pass the mysterious 4x4 post with no sign.

You can drive all the way to the end just shy of 4,900'. From the parking lot to the base of it I'd say 2 miles maybe?? Add to that about 500' of elevevation gain...so super strenuous :D At a leisurly stroll it might take you 45 min or so to open ground then another 15 of talaus...we took our sweet ass time knowing it would be a chill day...wanting the girl to enjoy the sights and sun...we were up and down with a nap on top in 6 hrs or so...jogging the trail and keeping moving I'd say I could prob car to car it in 3 - 3 1/2 hrs and that'd be no speed record

 

I picked up a cheater winter approach tool (snow mobile) and want to give that ice route on the East hell this winter...beautiful area
