      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] Sloan Peak - Corkscrew via North Sauk River 8/19/2017

Trip: Sloan Peak - Corkscrew via North Sauk River


Date: 8/19/2017


Trip Report:

A group of 4 of us took on this route. We met up at 5 am and started our approach hike around 7:10 AM. The first cross of the Sauk River doesn't have a log crossing or at least we couldn't find one. The river is pretty low is spots so we crossed there. The next two river crossings have logs to cross them so we used them. Watch out for hornets between the first river and second river crossing. I got stung by one. :( the hike is very straight forward, ribbons through out mark the climber's path. We met a second party of 3 that had approach from Bedal Creek and they mentioned they had to do a bit of a bushwack. The glacier is starting to look pretty bare, our route followed the upper northern aspect of the glacier. Several crevasses, there is one snow bridge crossing that can look intimidating but it's pretty solid as of this writing (see picture). The scramble does in fact feel like a corkscrew twisting around the mountain. All in all, a good day.


GPX File if interested:





Gear Notes:

Standard glacier equipment, 40meter rope.


Approach Notes:

Unpaved forest road to the trailhead pullout.
