      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!

I have the day off. I've asked approximately 8 people I know but no one has committed yet. Anyone out there free/interested? :skiing:

Yep. No dice. 😒

And now the weather trend for that day is worsening. Ho hum... Weather/partner anxiety is getting to me.

it does seem a bit too warm on sunday night- monday and the no freeze thing is really putting a damper on things.  last year on Ruby was a great example of how spring cornice collapse can trigger lingering deep instabilities...  https://www.nwac.us/blog/2017/03/26/ruby-mountain-low-probability-high-consequence/

Deep instabilities are present still in central-north as I observed on Pilchuck a couple days ago.. 6' -ish crown @5000' NNE-N aspect from recent cornice collapse.

I would be interested in going if conditions were better..
