      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!

Weird. I KNOW i posted a reply to this yesterday, but it isn't here today. Oh well.

 

We each brought a homemade dinner for three, that we cooked at night. We also brought mixed nuts, peanut butter, cheese, and summer sausage. Thanks for the kind words. My question is, should it take 4 days for the trip, or are we just slackers?

"My question is, should it take 4 days for the trip, or are we just slackers? "

The first time I climbed whitney I was acclimated to sea level and it took all day to get to a point halfway between upper boy scout and iceberg lakes and I was worked. The second time I was acclimated from living at 7000 feet for a few months and made it all the way to iceberg in an easy afternoon. The altitude is the real killer.
