      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!

Winter Scramble / Not-so-serious routes around Pyramid / Pinnacle / Paul Bunyan's / Colonial?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a winter / spring outing in this neck of the woods that is sufficiently mellow enough to be done unroped, and done in a long day from the road.   Probably not on skis.   I know about hard routes around here, but other stuff not so much.  Suggestions?   Looks like Ruby Mountain across the way is mellow and may fit the bill.

Pyramid is a mellow walk up the south side after you wrap around from the climber's path.  Quite a grunt in a day, but doable. 

Don't overlook Sourdough.  It's a great outing that doesn't have anyone on it in the snowy time of year.  A steep snowy hike pretty much.

Also, Davis Peak can be done without rope.  There is a steep step that you may not like, depending on your comfort level.

All of the above have avalanche issues in the winter/spring so be careful!
