  4. 2016/17 Ice Conditions

    scoped out Leavenworth yesterday, most ice still looking pretty good considering Its mid March in WA. Hubba Hubba looks good from the road, slopes above look a bit loaded, so we went to Millennium / Snow creek Wall . Crazy ice climbing in sun in WA in March, but I'll take it. Ice should still be good next week, possibly the following depending on temps.
  5. 2016/17 Ice Conditions

    thought i was done with ice for the season, but with monties lattes report of Leavenworth, think I'll check out Millenium/Snow-Creek-Wall this Sunday, and report back. Avy condition looks to remain high through the weekend for all of WA so avoiding avy prone climbs. Any other suggestion where i could finding WI3+/4 in Leavenworth this weekend?
  6. Anyone been to the small but growing Valdez ice climbing festival? any first hand opinions? Thinking of jaunting up there in February, for the festival and possible alpine objective.

  12. If spending Thanksgiving in Mexico climbing sounds like something anyone here wants to partake, i'll start planning this trip out later in August. Ideally it would be a small and competent group, camping. Have some friends that are on the fence for this trip. Currently posted on meetup.

  18. This weekend

    I'm also in for ice/alpine climbing this weekend. Like above, have screws,rope and gear, but haven't lead ice. with this warmer temps, alpine might be more ideal, however been thinking Mazama might have some decent ice routes, don't know. we should organize something, else I'm going drinking...

  20. 2015/2016 Washington Ice Conditions

    MrGecko, here's a google map of Nisqually Belle. From paradise snowshoe the trail, decent into the glacier via the least steep hill you can find and walk a top of the small ridge line, descending into the glacier. https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Mount+Rainier+National+Park,+Washington/46.8126021,-121.7466695/@46.767549,-121.7391077,4808a,20y,40.6t/data=!3m1!1e3!4m8!4m7!1m5!1m1!1s0x5490cde6eec94b87:0x5cf4a1fb4f91a418!2m2!1d-121.7269094!2d46.8799663!1m0

    Peter leading Nisqually Belle WI5 - full 70m pitch.
  22. Looking to put together a week long ice climbing trip to Hyalite Canyon, Montana, 1st /2nd week of February 2016. We can take my truck, fit 2 more + gear, or fly+rental car. I last ice climbed 5 years ago, and been out due to injuries, warm temps, not getting out of WA, or other hobbies...whaaawhaawhaa. I'd be able to set TR, or follow, and looking to do as much climbing as possible. A detour to Glacier NP, would be optional. Flexible schedule, can be from late January til late February. if interested, lets make it happen. drenewemail@gmail.com
