      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!

This climb is called "The Cooper 30"    It's 30 meters tall and hangs off Cooper Spur above the Eastern side of the Eliot Glacier at 8000 feet elevation.   It forms early, I've climbed it in mid November.   And it lasts late, this year I climbed it in May.   Where else can you go locally and find water ice that lasts 6 months of the year?    Some years there's a whole mess of other ice handing up there too.   Head in from "Tilly Jane" trail head 5 plus miles.   In the summer when the road is open you can drive all the way up to "Cloud Cap"
