      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!

Mountaineering in the Cascades - June/July 2018

Recommended Posts

Looking for folks that would be interested in tackling some big objectives in the Washington Cascades this Spring!  Particularly interested in climbing on Mt. Rainier and the North Ridge on Mt. Baker (I'm pretty stoked on climbing steep ice!), but I'm pretty open to any other suggested climbs as well.  I'd be flying over from New Hampshire (so I may need to hitch a ride with folks if they are willing), and hoping to spend a solid week out there.  Tentatively the first or second week in June, or possibly a little later.  Ive got three seasons of pretty serious ice climbing/leading experience (WI 4-4+) here in New England, including lots of winter alpine climbs.  I have also climbed Mt Shasta and Mt Hood out there in previous years, but no real glacier travel experience (looking to learn though!).  Spent two summers climbing alpine rock and snow in the mountains of central Idaho and a bit in the Tetons as well, and am comfortable leading 5.8-5.9 and easy mixed terrain.  Please give me a shout if interested!  Feel free to text me too, 978-503-9191, and hopefully we can throw some plans together.

 

Thanks,

Kevin M

+1 for Kevin! We climbed the Grand Teton (complete Exum) and Hood (south side/old chute) together. Upstanding spray-free human and safe, competent, fit climbing partner.

Hey Kevin, I'm planning on doing the North Ridge of Kulshan (Baker) in June and I'm looking for partners. I generally prefer do such routes with people I've already climbed with, but we can discuss it. I also will likely be in the NY area in late May so it's possible we could climb something on the east coast.

Hey, I'm interested in the North Ridge on Baker and might be interested in Rainier depending on what route you have in mind. NikiY, if you're still looking for partners as well, I'd be down to talk!
